"I adore these. They're like miniature apartment buildings. And when you hit the right numbers, the occupant of your choice leaps to his death. And becomes your snack."
—Jenkins to the Librarians[src]

Jenkins A.K.A Galahad/Galeas is the immortal caretaker of the Annex. Jenkins was once a Knight of the Round Table and is over a thousand years old. Over the past few centuries, he has spent his time in the Annex doing research and experiments that will benefit the Library. He currently serves as the wise counsel most of the time to the current Librarians as they use the Annex as their base of operations.

BiographyEdit

Jenkins uses the Annex in Portland, Oregon to do research on artifacts. Typically insular he has begrudgingly accepted the Librarians and the Guardian into the Annex as a base of operations, originally until the Main Library was located, and afterwards to provide support to the three new librarians. He provided the librarians with information and aid, however he seemed to be afraid to get involved in the fight. This changed when Ezekiel Jones participated in the conclave and opposed Dulaque.[1]

Jenkins has an unknown, but seemingly close, relationship to Dulaque, which is said to have spanned at least 1000 years when an 'incident' occurred. In Jenkin's words many of his past efforts to assist have resulted in blood. Jenkins has a hostile relationship with Morgan Le Fay. He told Eve Baird that Morgan should be killed, even if that meant forgoing the lives of hundreds of high school students, because she'd be responsible for thousands of deaths if she escaped. Morgana called him by the name "Galeas," which is an alternate name for Galahad. Jenkins helped to open the path to The Loom Of Fate, after Dulaque used and cut the thread. He confronted Dulaque, who was in the form of Lancelot, at the Loom, giving Flynn time to reweave the Loom, and set time back to how it should be. During the fight Dulaque calls Jenkins "Galahad", confirming his true identity.[2]

PersonalityEdit

Jenkins seemed to be a bit hesitant in helping the librarians.   He also mentioned he had a different vision than Judson. Instead of just storing the magical items he wanted to experiment with them and find out what they can do. Interestingly this vision gets close to that of the Serpent Brotherhood who wants to use magic to change the world.  He greatly respects Flynn and Charlene, and seems friendly with Eve.  He likes to experiment, cares immensly about the artifacts in the library, and is skilled at interacting with other magical creatures.  He is loyal, intelligent, and possesses a dry sense of humor.

AbilitiesEdit

  • Master swordsman: Jenkins is a elite warrior and one of King Arthur's strongest knights. His immortality gave him limitless time and experience into possibly studying other forms of swordsmanship. He is able to hold his own against Dulaque. Dulaque mentions Jenkins is the only soldier that can match him.
  • Immortality: Jenkins admitted his immortal status in the episode 'And the Hollow Men'. The full extent of this ability and its source are currently unknown but Jenkins does not appear to age, (or he allows himself to appear elderly) and can walk through toxic levels of natural gas without any side effects (episode: And the Infernal Contract). He also survived a small collapse of concrete/stone with no apparent injury in the same episode.

However, it must be noted that in the episode And the Hollow Men Jenkins stated that if the Library was about to 'die' it would take hold of a life force to sustain itself. His request the Librarians leave so their lives would not be taken implies that his immortality has limits, and that he can die.

Toward the end of second season, the fae he brought forth to answer questions, stated that Jenkins could not be killed but could die.

TriviaEdit

  • According to Sir Thomas Malory's "Le Morte d'Arthur", Galahad was knighted and obtained his seat at the Round Table, in the chair known as the Seige Perilous, on Pentecost Sunday, "Four hundred winters and four and fifty accomplished after the passion of our Lord Jesu Christ". He was fifteen at this time. Taking 33AD as the date of Christ's Passion, that makes Jenkins at least 1543 years old.
  • Sir Thomas Malory's, Le Morte d'Arthur, also denotes Galahad as the illegitimate son of Lancelot du Lac (Dulaque).  While this connection has not been explicitly confirmed on screen, the pair did share a tentative embrace after the Conclave.  Additionally, during a TV interview John Larroqeette did confirm that Dulaque is Galahad's father (see link below at the two minute mark).
  • In the episode And the Loom of Fate, Dulaque asks Jenkins "who will rule the stupid little humans?", this implies that both Dulaque and Jenkins are not human; or Dulaque believes himself greater than humanity.
  • In the episode Happily Ever Afters, Jenkins alluded to some sort of trouble with Santa that may have indicated a relationship with Mrs. Claus. Referring to the fae Ariel spinning very fast in the trap Flynn made, "I have never seen anything move that quickly, except the night that Gretchen and I heard Santa come home early from Oktoberfest." However, it is possible that this memory is part of a fictional history within Jenkins' own "Happily Ever After."
  • In season 3, Jenkins reveals that his unrequited love is for Charlene.
