Sir Percy chose the sword and became the Black Knight, and Merlin cast a spell to destroy the others. Before Merlin's spell could be completed, Mordred intervened and stole the ebony staff. He used this staff to create the Ebony Dagger, the only weapon that could slay the current wielder of the Ebony Sword[1].

King Arthur retreated to Castle Scandia, informed by Merlin Sir Percy gave chaise but he arrived too late and Arthur had being slayed already, and while he fought against Mondred's knights[2].
