In former England, before the birth of Arthur King, Merlin (Simon Lloyd Roberts) held the position of King Wattigan (Hefin Wyn).

Soon after Voltien was crowned, the fire-breathing dragon landed in England, setting fire to the buildings and devouring its residents. These dragons threatened the survival of Britain. Voltaire instructed Merlin to lead an army against the dragons, ordering his best generals, Iago McGuire (Iago McGuire) and Uther (Dylan Jones) Come to assist Merlin.
