– George to Ben.[1]

Sir George (birthname Georgius) was an extremely old character in Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. He is the first Forever Knight, having founded them over one thousand years ago. In The Purge, he recruited the Forever Knight leaders to join his own faction of the Forever Knights, uniting all the separate factions into a single order, and later started a war against all aliens on Earth.

Appearance[]

As an old man, Sir George was bald on most of his head, with a long, white beard. In The Creature From Beyond, he is seen in the beginning, watching TV in a wheel chair at the Senior Village. According to the nurse, George is not Sir George's real name and he is "ancient" because he has lived in Bellwood Senior Village since it opened in the 70's. In Solitary Alignment, Georgius is revealed to be his real name.

Sir George regains his youth in A Knight to Remember when he is reunited with Ascalon. Sir George had blond hair, a shortened blond beard, and wore Ascalon's armor.

Personality[]

Sir George is incredibly strong willed and one-minded. Like all Forever Knights, Sir George sees aliens and alien hybrids as abominations, to the point of saying that honor was irrelevant when fighting them.[2] However, Sir George respects Azmuth, since he gave him Ascalon, which helped Sir George save humanity from Dagon.[1]

Sir George has shown to possess some degree of arrogance, priding himself in the fact that he singlehandedly defeated Dagon (leaving out Azmuth's involvement), taunting his opponents, and claiming Ascalon's power could never corrupt him.[1]

Unlike other Forever Knights, Sir George does not seem to be greedy with power or have a desire to rule over others, simply caring about defeating his ancient enemy. His conviction and stubbornness are so great in part because he has experienced many people trying to stifle and control him throughout his life, a feeling in which he relates to Ben.[1]

History[]

Background[]

George was born in 231 AD in ancient Rome. He acquired immortality at some point by unknown means, living for over 900 years before becoming a knight in the medieval era[1].

Sir George forged the seal that kept the Lucubras at bay seventeen centuries ago. He also defeated their master, Dagon, with the sword Ascalon, carving out Dagon's heart and pinning it to the ground with the sword. He is the "First Forever Knight", having founded the Forever Knights.

George in Prisoner Number 775 is Missing

Sir George moved to the Bellwood Senior Village and lived there for years until the events of The Creature From Beyond. He had a coin with the same symbol as the seal that held the Lucubra. He somehow knew when the seal was destroyed and immediately left. At the end of the episode he was seen looking at the damaged seal, looking down, then leaving.

In Ben 10,000 ReturnsProfessor Paradox warns Ben to "Beware Old George" and the Creature from Beyond.

In Prisoner Number 775 is Missing, Sir George arrives at Area 51, where he attacks the guards and removes the base, leaving a crater. A later episode revealed that he turned Area 51 into a Forever Knights stronghold.

George unifying the Forever Knight factions

In The Purge, Sir George, escorted by two high-tech Forever Knights, appears during a meeting between Enoch, Sir Driscoll, Patrick and Urien. After a brief fight with Driscoll, he is identified as the founder of the Forever Knights and unites the factions into one. Sir George's first order was the Forever Knights target the aliens living on Earth and remove them whatever way possible. He later sends Driscoll to lead the Forever Knight soldiers into attacking an alien air-lift area that Ben was guarding. Upon learning of Driscoll's defeat, Sir George is not disappointed as it was just a distraction for a bigger plan. Sir George has Driscoll lead the Forever Knights while he is away and to have the Forever Knights ready upon his return, "for the battle of 100 lifetimes".

Sir George's trip is explained in A Knight to Remember: he has been on a quest to find Ascalon and Dagon's heart, planning to use his old sword to destroy the heart once and for all. Using a long series of calculations, Sir George found when and where the shrine that holds Ascalon and the heart would appear next, leading a team of Forever Knights to intercept it.

At the shrine, Sir George and his knights were ambushed by Dagon's cult, the Flame Keeper's Circle, and their new leader, Vilgax. Vilgax tossed Sir George aside and grabbed Ascalon, gaining control over the sword's powers in the process. Sir George and Driscoll tried to stop Vilgax from freeing Dagon, and in the process, Vilgax was sucked into Dagon's dimension. Sir George was able to regain Ascalon, and his youth.

Immediately following this, in Solitary Alignment, Azmuth appeared and explained via a holographic flashback that he forged Ascalon and gave it to George in hopes that he could defeat Dagon. Now Azmuth wants Ascalon back, because he fears that Dagon will not underestimate Sir George a second time.

TUE1 (451)

Sir George with Ben's team

Sir George leaves the area via a rift in space-time created by Ascalon and goes back to Area 51. Using a lock of hair Kevin pulled out, Gwen tracked down Sir George to Area 51 where Ultimate Humungousaur fought him. Ultimate Humungousaur and Sir George made a compromise: if Sir George fights Dagon and loses, he will give Ben the Ascalon.

In The Beginning of the End, Sir George started a war with the Flame Keepers' Circle. Then he goes on challenging Dagon to a battle. Instead, Dagon gives him Vilgax to battle with, but Ben arrives to assist George against the powered-up alien.

TUE2 (205)

The death of Sir George

In The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2, Sir George takes a direct lightning attack from Dagon and tries to defend himself using Ascalon. However, this backfired since Ascalon merely conducted the lightning into George himself, turning him into an old man once more and electrifying him to the point, where he falls to his knees and crumbles into dust. Following his death, Ben took Ascalon and used it against Vilgax, saying the now-deceased George's catchphrase before charging into battle and defeating his old nemesis.

Powers and Abilities[]

Sir George was "cursed" with eternal life, through a means that he refused to disclose. This enormously reduced his aging process, at least visually; he still looked like a young man after living for 900 years, and looked elderly in the present day.[1] While it seemed that George might die eventually, he suffered no ill effects from being an old man, and could potentially have lived forever.

Sir George was an expert swordsman, both with and without a shield. He also could improvise with a variety of other weapons, such as when he needed to defeat a giant Lucubra by using the spears already plunged in its body.[1] He was also a skilled hand-to-hand fighter, beating all Esoterica who opposed him with little effort.[3][4]

Sir George had inhuman physical strength and reflexes, even as an old man. He could lift or break objects with ease, such as when he broke a wooden barrier in half with his hand and used it to knock out a security guard.[5] He was also quick enough to dodge all of Sir Driscoll's sword swipes.[2]

Sir George is very intelligent. He was shown to be able to use magic to the extent of fortifying the Seal to hold both Dagon and the Lucubra.[6] He also used calculus to predict the next location of Dagon's teleporting shrine.[3]

Ascalon[]

Sir George was the most successful wielder of Ascalon, and was able to use it to its fullest potential in combat. When he reunited with it after centuries, the sword returned to him his youth, and he became a young man again.[1]

It also enveloped him in full blue-silver medieval armor (complete with a hilt), which protected him from all manner of physical and energy attacks. Its visor also shielded against bright light.[4]

Simply possessing the sword protected George from the Dagon's mind controlling abilities, even when his helmet was lost.[7][8][9]

With the sword in hand, George was able to fight, hurt, and kill all manner of superpowered beings, as well as defend against their attacks, both physical and energy.[1][4][8][9]

George was also able to effectively use the sword's reality warping abilities: conjuring slash beams,[1][9] electricity beams,[1] and energy shields;[9] and generating blinding lights,[4] whirlwinds, and portals.[1] He once forcefully reverted Ben Tennyson in alien form back to human;[1] cut massive gashes into the Dagon when he was thousands of feet away;[9] and made the sword fly back into his hand when it was knocked out.[1]

Weaknesses[]

TUE2 (198)

George was eventually killed by the Dagon's unique red lightning striking him in his armor, which not even Ascalon could defend against.

Trivia[]

  • Tellings of Sir George's legendary battle with the Dagon eventually morphed into the tale of "Saint George and the Dragon".
  • According to himself, Sir George was just like Ben when he was young. This is reinforced by how Sir George's personality starts to mirror Ben's after his youth is restored by Ascalon.
  • It is unknown how George managed to teleport Area 51 in Prisoner Number 775 is Missing without yet obtaining Ascalon.
  • The symbol on the seal that was holding the Lucubra, Dagon, and on Sir George's coin also appears on Forever Knight armor. The symbol is the picture depicting the word "infinity" (), a word consistent with the Forever Knight's name.
  • Despite being referred to as Saint George by Azmuth, George could not legitimately claim sainthood within the show until he died, as sainthood is a title that can only be granted after death.
