Since the masque seems to be a sequel, rather than a retelling, of
the matter, meseems the important thing is how he ended up rather
than how he behaved through most of the legend.  Does he, perhaps,
repent his past foul behaviour, and accompany the wounded King to
Avalon?  If so, methinks his placement in the masque would be very
appropriate (although, if I wrote the script, I'd have him changing
his middle name to "Avec").
