Unlock Description Translation🛈
Default 楽園の放浪者。アーサー王伝説に登場する宮廷魔術師にして助言者、予言者。


「人間の世界は大好きだが、個人個人となると、わりと、ほら、まあ、うん! よし、言わぬが花の気がしてきたぞぅ!」


NA Localization: The vagabond of paradise. The court wizard, prophet, and adviser from the Legend of King Arthur. He would sometimes guide, sometimes cause trouble for, and sometimes aid King Arthur as he fought against his many enemies and overcame his many trials. He was a sage, but fundamentally not human. He was, in fact, a half-blood born of a human and an incubus.

"I love the world of humans, but as for individual humans, well, um... you know! Yep! Okay, I'm starting to think it's better left unsaid!"

As you can see, he's not particularly an ally of mankind.
He is one of the strongest Casters, but he isn't very good at magecraft. Why? Because he gets tongue-tied when chanting spells, you see.

Fan Translation: The vagrant of the paradise. The court mage, advisor and prophet that appears in Arthurian legends.
He would at times guide, at times torment and at times help King Arthur so that she could overcome many enemies and hardships.
Still, even as a wise man he is fundamentally inhuman.
For you see, he is a mixed-blood of incubus and human.

I like the world of humans very much, but when it comes to each of them individually, I’m relatively, look, well, yeah!
Very well, I suddenly feel that some things are better left unsaid!

Just like this, it is not like he is an ally of humans.
One among the top-ranking Casters, but he himself does not treat magecraft as his forte. The reason being that he stumbles during incantations.

Fan Translation: Height/Weight: 178cm・68kg

Region: West European countries
Alignment: Lawful Good
Gender: Male
Why I don’t use incantations, you ask?
Even though it’s faster to just hit them?

Bond 2 母はウェールズ王妃であったとされるが、父については月と大地との間に生きる超自然的な夢魔であったとされる。





NA Localization: It's said that while his mother was the princess of Wales, his father was an incubus, a supernatural being that lives between the Earth and the Moon. He was a prophet from a young age.

The prophecy that brought him the greatest fame was that of a red dragon and a white dragon that slept beneath Mt. Erir, and how they would fight after they awoke.

"The red dragon represents Britain, and the white dragon the Saxons. Someday, Britain will gather power under the banner of a great king, and defeat the Gauls and Romans."
These words were passed on through the ages as the prophecy of Merlin.
He left many other prophecies, some of which concerned even the outcome of wars and the deaths of kings.

Merlin aided Arthur's father, Uther Pendragon, in his marriage to the queen, watching over the throne since before King Arthur's birth.
In some versions of the story, he is like a foster father to Arthur, who watches over the young king's growth and teaches him many things.

Fan Translation: His mother was a princess of Wales, but his father was supposedly a supernatural incubus that lived between the Earth and the moon.
It has been said that he performed many prophecies at a young age.

Among those, the prophecy that caused Merlin’s name to become widely known was one in which, after correctly guessing about the existence of a red and a white dragon sleeping beneath Mt. Emrys, he spoke how those red and white dragons would fight against each other upon waking up.

Merlin’s words, which were transmitted to posterity as prophecies, indicated the red dragon as Britain and the white dragon as the Saxons and that Britain would gather their forces under a great king and surely reign over Gaul and Rome---
He also left behind many other prophecies, among which there were those concerning wars and even the king’s death.

Merlin arranged the marriage between King Arthur’s father - Uther Pendragon - and his queen, watch over King Arthur’s since before her birth. According to anecdotes, he taught many things to the young Arthur and ascertain her growth as if a foster father-like existence.

Bond 3 『永久に閉ざされた理想郷』

ランク:C 種別:対人宝具



NA Localization: 『Garden of Avalon』
Rank: C Type: Anti-Personnel
Eternally Secluded Utopia.
Merlin recreates the tower where he is still sealed away.
Flowers bloom on the ground, and warm sunlight pours into the surroundings, even in the darkest depths of hell.
Even if he were trapped in the smallest and darkest of cells, his only view a fragment of the sky far above, his utopia would continue to manifest.

The place where Merlin, the Mage of Flowers, dwells will never be a hell.
It will be a land filled with hope.

Illusion: A
Magecraft that deceives others.
Refers to mental interference and false images projected into the real world.
At A rank, it can create not only nightmares within the world of the mind, but in the real world as well. It could easily create false images powerful enough to affect an entire village.

Fan Translation: The Forever-Sealed Utopia
Rank: C
Type: Anti-Unit
Garden of Avalon.
Reproduces the “tower” where Merlin is even now being confined on the surroundings.
Flowers bloom in profusion and a warm sunlight shines on the ground, no matter what sort of darkness・hell that might be.
Even if the space that he has been permitted with is nothing but a jail of mere 10 meters in all directions, and the scenery given to him is only an isolated emptiness found far away in the skies, it continues to exist as an utopia.

The place where the magus Merlin is must not be a hell, but a land filled with hope.

Illusion: A
A magecraft that deludes people. It indicates intervention towards the mind, virtual projections on the real world and the likes.
Upon reaching A Rank, nightmares on the mental world are a matter of course, but he can also easily create virtual images of about the size of a single village to deceive people.

Bond 4 草原に吹く風のような青年。




NA Localization: A young man like the wind blowing across a grassy plain.
Everyone relaxes in his presence.
A good-looking, easygoing man with a good heart.
But he lacks a sense of responsibility and tends to be relaxed no matter the situation, so he is often seen as a shady con man.
He takes an objective view of things, and while he admits that the human world can be a cruel place,
he says, "Well that's no fun, is it?" and changes the world into something happy.

He loves the world of mankind. He loves mischief. He loves girls.
The Mage of Flowers gets through most of his problems with a refreshing smile and a, "Now, now," retort.

He's often seen as a perfectly happy person, with no worries at all, but Merlin himself realizes that he is an outsider in human society, and so he can't tear down the final barrier of being able to call someone a dear friend.
He watches over the world day and night so that humanity can have a happy ending.

Fan Translation: A young man who is like a wind blowing on grasslands.
Before him, anyone end up letting the tension out of their shoulders - a refreshingly righteous person. Still, due to seemingly be quite lacking in terms of seriousness and sense of responsibility, he may also appear as a shady con man.
A rhetorician who, even while perceiving things in an objective manner and accepting the cruelty of the world of humans, turns it into something bright by saying things like:
But, it wouldn’t be fun otherwise, right?

He loves the world of humans, loves mischief and loves girls.
The magus of flowers who retorts at most things with a refreshing smile and a calming expression such as “now, now”.

He tends to appear as having a perfectly happy personality without a single worry, but since Merlin himself is self-aware about the fact he is foreign body in regards to human society, he never crosses that last step... the wall also called friendship.
Ultimately, he is always watching over the world so that mankind reach a happy outcome.

Self-Manifestation: A
The ability to manifest in the world on one's own.
Merlin is not normally summoned as a Heroic Spirit. This is because there is no future where he can die.
He serves his Master as a Servant to vent his selfish desires, which could essentially be called a hobby.
In order to indulge this hobby of his, he single-handedly obtained this skill that only a certain special class could possess, and pretends to be summoned as a Servant.

Fan Translation: Hero Creation: EX
The techniques to artificially give birth and raise a king.
Merlin, who can be described as the true father of King Arthur, is known as the most prominent kingmaker in the world.

Independent Manifestation: A
A skill for autonomously materializing on the present era.
Originally, Merlin would not be summoned as a heroic spirit.
Because he is not dead in any sort of future.
For him, working for a Master as a Servant is like venting a personal craving; quite frankly, it is just a hobby.
In order to realize such hobby, he acquired this skill - that only a certain special Class can possess - by his own power, and is now pretending to be summoned as a Servant.

Extra 優れた千里眼を持ち、円卓の崩壊もブリテンの危機もすべてが見えていたにも関わらず、アーサー王に伝える事なくブリテンを後にした。



NA Localization: He possesses outstanding clairvoyance, and was able to see both the collapse of the Round Table and Britain's peril. In spite of this, he left the country without telling King Arthur.

There are several theories as to why Merlin did not tell King Arthur of his fate, but it's said that this was because he did not side with any one individual, and instead only loved fate itself.

Afterwards, Merlin went to the utopia of Avalon, and sealed himself within the tower there.
Unable to die, he is destined to watch over the world of man until the end of time.
...Almost as if this were the lot of a foolish man who playfully interfered with the fate of a young girl.

Fan Translation: Possessing outstanding Clairvoyance, in spite of having foreseen all about the collapse of he Round Table and Britain’s crisis, he left Britain without telling anything to King Arthur.

There are many theories as for why Merlin never told King Arthur about her fate, but it is often said that it was because he is not biased towards individuals, instead caring only about fate.

Afterwards, Merlin went to the utopia of Avalon and confined himself into a “tower”.
To ascertain the world of humans until the end of the universe, without being able to die.
....as if to say that this is the fate of a foolish man, who playfully meddled with the fate of a single girl.

When it comes to talking about the king, no one is sketchier. He keeps up with current tech trends, and even manages an internet idol. Some say he has way too many attributes.
