Sir Galahad is Lancelot's illegitimate son with Elaine of Corbenic, daughter
of King Pelles. It had been foretold to Pelles that Lancelot would father a
very special child with Elaine but Lancelot would not look at any woman
except for his beloved Guinevere. Thus Pelles sought the help of a sorcerer
who used magic to trick Lancelot into thinking Elaine was Guinevere. Galahad
therefore joins both Arthur and Merlin who were also conceived by deception.
He is renowned for his life of purity, chastity and gallantry which is why
he is able to find the Holy Grail and is then taken up into Heaven.
