He never felt at home in Camelot, you know? He... he always said he was glad that I was born there because being a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's court is no great shakes.

Sir Hank Morgan[1] is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He débuts, with his only appearance, in the fifth episode of the fifth season. He is portrayed by guest star Ryan Robbins.

Sir Hank Morgan is based on the character of the same name from Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.


Before First Curse

Sometime in the past, Morgan travels across realms, from Connecticut in the Land Without Magic, to Camelot. During this time, he becomes one of King Arthur's knights and marries a woman who later gives birth to their daughter, Violet. However, when Violet is still young, Morgan's wife passes away because of magic. ("Only You", "An Untold Story")

Before Third Curse

Arriving at the stables, Sir Morgan sees Henry, who has just fallen from his clumsy attempt at wielding a sword. Unimpressed, he questions the boy about his lack of sword or riding skills, learning that Henry is not a squire, but a simple writer. Morgan, looking down on Henry's profession, considers that he wouldn't be able to protect Violet from ogres with a pen and he then proclaims that his daughter deserves to be with someone who will be both a knight and hero. Not believing Henry possesses these attributes, Morgan tells him to leave before he causes too much damage. ("Dreamcatcher")

After Third Curse

Some days after Sir Morgan and some of the Camelot natives are transported to Storybrooke by Emma's curse, with their memories of the last six weeks erased, Violet's horse Nicodemus goes missing. Morgan attempts to bait Nicodemus with pumpkin, his favorite treat, to no avail. That night, he takes Violet to the town party, and though she is still upset about her horse's disappearance, he encourages her to have fun. Suddenly, Henry arrives with Nicodemus, causing Violet's mood to brighten up immediately. Morgan praises him for helping, stating that Henry will surely make a good knight one day, before he leaves to take Nicodemus to the stables, leaving the two youngsters alone. ("Dreamcatcher")

Sir Morgan remains in Storybrooke with the rest of the Camelot natives, including his daughter. However, when Zelena uses the Sorcerer's Wand to open a portal back to the Enchanted Forest, Morgan decides to stay in the Land Without Magic with his daughter, as it was his original home. ("An Untold Story")
