Sir Kay
Sir Kay the Seneschal

A knight who captured Hank and took him to Camelot.
He was King Arthur's foster brother.
Amyas le Poulet

He grows throughout the book. He starts off as a ignorant paige who learns leadership and other skills from the Yankee. He is the Yankee's most loyal friend.
King Arthur
"King of Britain, the ruler in Camelot, and The Boss's companion during an incognito visit among the lower classes of England."
"A wise and gracious king. He tries his best, but he has a full share of the prejudices and superstitions of the day. The Yankee's opinion of his intellectual capacity varies, but he is capable of learning and of correcting his mistakes."
"Supposedly the mightiest magician of the times, he is bested several times by The Boss; it is he who puts The Boss under a spell that causes him to sleep from the sixth century to the nineteenth century."
"A hack magician with the fatal flaw of actually believing in his own sleight of hand. Merlin is deceptive and petty and terribly vindictive; he would be an incredibly dangerous person if any of his tricks ever worked."
"Queen of England; she is Arthur's wife, although she is much more romantically interested in Sir Launcelot."
"Arthur's beautiful queen. Everyone in the country knows of her indiscretions, except Arthur, of course."
Sir Launcelot
"He is the most prominent knight of the Round Table, and he is the main cause, along with Guenever, of the Interdict that overtakes England late in the novel."
"The shining pinnacle of chivalry, often referred to as "The Invincible." He is noble and gracious and generally good in every way that can be expected from a man of his era, except for his tragic passion for Guenever."
Sir Sagramor le Desirous
"Another knight of the Round Table; he challenges The Boss because of a supposed slight; he is finally shot by The Boss."
"Your average haughty, block-headed knight. He angers quickly and holds a grudge."
"She is more formally known as the Demoiselle Alisande la Carteloise; she comes to Camelot with a tale about her mistress being held captive by three ogres. King Arthur decides that The Boss will accompany her to set this matter right. Morgan later comes to admire her a great deal and, eventually, he marries her."
"A pretty but somewhat flighty damsel who comes to Arthur's court seeking assistance and becomes attached to the Yankee. The Yankee finds her terribly annoying at first, but she proves to be quite useful and pleasant. She is a product of her times in every way, believing fully in the righteousness of social stratification and the power of the supernatural, but she improves greatly through her contact with the Yankee and even teaches him a thing or two."
Morgan le Fay
"Arthur's sister and King Urien's wife; she is the real ruler of their small kingdom, but she is deferential to The Boss, since his reputation as a magician preceded him to her castle."
"A vicious but beautiful and genteel queen. Arthur is her brother, but she hates him passionately."
"He is a charcoal burner; the king and The Boss stay with him and his wife on their incognito tour of the realm; after a while, Marco and his wife become alarmed by the behavior of the king and The Boss, and they go after help against these two strangers."
"A humble charcoal-burner, fairly representative of the poor-spirited peasants of the day."
"The blacksmith in the village near where the Marcos live; he is a primary target of The Boss's attempts to bring the villagers' thinking about economic matters into line with his."
"A prosperous blacksmith, extremely proud of his position as a self-made man."
Grip, an Earl
"An important man in the neighborhood where the Marcos live; he and his men rescue the king and the Boss from the villagers, but they sell them into slavery the next day."
"The daughter of The Boss and Sandy; she is given her unusual name when Sandy hears The Boss repeat it frequently in his sleep; she believes that it is the name of one of Morgan's old girlfriends."
Sir Mordred
"A nephew of King Arthur. He is the primary cause of the Interdict that wipes out the progress which The Boss has brought to England because he uses the fighting between the king's party and Launcelot's party in the battle over the queen to try and take power himself."
Sir Meliagraunce
"A knight wounded in Morgan's last battle; he stabs Morgan, and this allows Merlin to put a spell on Morgan that causes him to sleep thirteen hundred years."
