This Servant is a limited Servant. It is only available during special summoning campaigns. When no such campaigns are active, this Servant cannot be summoned. No plans have been revealed to add this Servant to the permanent summoning pool.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Mixed Blood: EX
The blood of something other than human is mixed in.
Merlin is a mixed-blood of incubus and has completely inherited the special traits as a incubus.
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.
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.
