Thomas the Rhymer
Thomas of Ercildoune, Thumas
the unwilling, and too quickly vanishing guide of those adventurous spirits who have entered the mysterious Halls beneath the Eildons, and attempted to achieve the re-awakening of Arthur ... only to be cast forth.
The tradition recorded in Malory has Arthur lying not beneath the Eildons, but in Avilion (Glastonbury). Different spatial relationships, however, may hold in Faery than here on the surface. Thomas and three other scribes were charged with recording the exploits of Arthur and his knights.
