Sir Garlon behaves just about the most shamefully of any knight in the literature, running around invisible and arbitrarily assassinating knights and ladies alike. When Sir Balin attacks him, King Pellam, as I've seen written in some Pendragon materials somewhere, chooses Love(Family) over Hospitality in siding with his brother over Balin. What I always struggle with is the narrative heaping of praise on Sir Pellam, given his enabling of his horrible brother. For example, Sir James Knowles calls Pellam "the truest and most worshipful of living knights". While I understand the contemporary values prize loyalty to the family, is that true even in this most extreme circumstance? How can we reconcile the assertion of Pellam being some sort of British paragon given that the only major behavior he exhibits is defending his infamously dishonorable brother?
