Morgraine was born to the Medoza family, a line of the royal family that was killed by Uther Pendragon when she was a young girl. After her parents' deaths she lived solely under the care of her mentor, Merlin, who taught her magic. She was the first apprentice that Merlin took on, but he probably didn't know what he was getting himself into. Her teacher later took on two other apprentices, Lord Bartholomew and Lady Morgana le Fey, who she quickly grew fond of. She learned a lot under Merlin's tutelage, but she always wanted more. She originally looked up to Merlin, but as time wore on she came to feel nothing but distain for him for only protecting her when Uther decided to kill her family, and eventually convinced her fellow apprentices to join with her and betray him. She attacked at Camelot again and again, trying to kill Merlin's precious Arthur Pendragon, who he had groomed to be Camelot's king. Merlin really shouldn't have been surprised that it happened, he knew the history of the Pendragon and Medoza lines better than nearly anyone alive. As the last of her line, she felt compelled to continue the battle that her ancestors had begun. The Pendragons had one once, but could they do so again? Could they defend their claim to the Ruby Throne without the help of the great Merlin? She doubted it. She needed to get him out of the way before her plans could come into fruition, so she and her fellow apprentices poisoned him in the crystal caves and left him to rot. They soon formed the Order of Merlin, just before the curse washed over the Enchanted Forest.
Luckily for Morgraine, she had been away from Camelot at the time. She had heard tell of a powerful wizard resided there and thought that he might be able to help her with the situation with Arthur and Merlin, because as much as she hated to admit it her meddlesome teacher never stayed down for long. When she returned to Camelot she quickly learned about what happened, and was relieved to find that Morgana and Bartholomew had managed to escape this strange curse. After learning from her fellow apprentices that Merlin was no longer in Camelot and that he was still alive, eventually she found her way to Storybrooke with her fellow apprentices and Morgana's children. At the moment she's trying to get used to this strange new land and not seem too out of place. She doesn't want to draw much attention to herself until she figures out what this place is, and how much of an issue Merlin poses at the moment.
