During the 6th Century, The Rift's custodian became Merlin the Enchanter who was the NeSorcerer and aide to King Arthur. He was trapped, however, within Doughnutdelf by Nyneve, his former apprentice and new NeSorcerer[Pan 1].
The Rift would then be used by Morganna le Fay, another of Merlin's apprentices, to funnel magic into the ancient, massive space vessel, Camelot. Vivane acted as a conduit, taking and diverting the magical energies of Albion into the human sorcerer. Once the ship, which was the size of Great Britain itself, was raised into the sky, the magical channel was cut[Pan 2].
