|“||"I see you've awoken. You're another one of them aren't you? Either one of those newbies trying to be a hero or simply living out their fantasy. Or so I thought initially. Judging that look in your eyes... You're quite aware of how dire your situation is aren't you? You seem a bit different from most. You actually have either common sense, or humility, or both... Or maybe you're just sleepy aren't you hoho..."||„|
|~ Speaking to Aizawa once she woke up in their first encounter|
|“||"Really, are men like you so easily tricked by what you see that you'd believe whatever a beautiful vixen may say? Foolish foolish foolish... If you want the real truth I am the real Merlin. The one that was by his side all along. I've lived for eons and know far more than you. Whether you shower me with gifts or scorn I do not care but if you are here to waste my time then kindly leave or I shall make you do so. Only those worthy of my time are people I'm willing to give some effort on. Now judging from the looks of your eyes you think I am too prideful no? Well, perhaps you should learn just how much I know before you think I'm all bark in these old bones of mine."||„|

Will likely be reworked to be streamlined.
The legend of Arthur, the king of all, has been told for eons. But there are many reasons as to why they never die out. Unlike accompanying heroes and those who formerly allied with the first king, a certain someone is fine with not getting much attention. They have lived their live quite extravagantly and in a popular way. Weary of all the glory, their adventure came to an end in the past when the first King finally used his sword to take out the gods that sided with the devils. Or so the stories go.
Now there's a woman by the mountains that acted as a boundary between the desert that spans in an almost endless fashion, and the vast kingdom overcrowded by fauna. In this place she lives calmly and peacefully, teaching those who look up to magic and want to learn more. In this place she resides, striking down whoever she immediately deems a threat with great ruthlessness. Do not get the mountain hag angry, and she will let you leave.
Also don't call her a mountain hag either.
Appearance and Personality
She's an old woman. What did you expect?
Known to be quite snarky and ruthless. Not many survive living with her whether in physical health from the abuse of her training, mental abuse from the sheer level of insults and her straining challenges, to psychological health from all the trauma. She is without a doubt one of the most ruthless elderly of the kingdom and is thus avoided by many adventures from different realms. Merlin is quite fond of that and willing to keep it like that.
That is at least, her reaction to trespassers and intruders she doesn't like.
Her first encounter with Aizawa had invoked a different impression. She was more akin to a nice old lady that is willing to help out any stranger. In fact her kindness was so much that Aizawa was stunned at her treatment of others. This kindness isn't just for the young girl as many mages and even some adventurers receive a kind treatment from her. Despite having a sharp tongue she can easily favor those who make good first impressions with her. In fact she enjoys storytelling but favors avoiding any conversation regarding the past.
A prodigious girl was once born in a kingdom.

Attack Potency: Moon level (Dropped the moon against a fight between Draughter and Ryner at a fast rate. Destroyed one of the barriers of the netherworld. Has numerous statements and scenes of her speaking about how there are too many moons, and is implied to have created one in a fight), likely at leastLarge Star level or higher with prep time (Implied to be one of the few who can take down Draughter prior to his ascenscion. Was capable of being one of the few who can clear most of Excalibur's challenges)
Speed: At least Massively Hypersonic (Conventional Grandmaster Mages can cast natural lightning as attacks and Merlin is on a higher level than them), likely MFTL (Intercepted Olaus Roemer's Hypercharge Photon Cannon with minor difficulty despite it being an ambush. Said attack is on a whole new level compared to his photon beams)
Lifting Strength: Unknown
Striking Strength: Unknown
Durability: Moon level (Intercepted the Hypercharge Photon cannon and reflected it, destroying one of the many moons in her realm by accident), likely at least Large Star level or higher (Draughter claimed an attack from him would not be enough to take her out at his current state, after demolishing a barrier of the netherworld)
Stamina: Still high despite being old.
Range: Multi-continental (Intercepted an arrow from Chiron, and sent it back to him despite him being in another kingdom. Due to the landscape of the realm she's located in, the distance is compared to the surface of the moon. Threatened to bring down the moon on a pest before). Multi-dimensional with certain spells
- Grandmaster's Staff - A powerful wooden staff. Typically granted to mages with the level of power of mages. Enhances a wizard's affinity for magic and thus increases their range, casting time, casting power, and mana limit with this staff. It's also great as a cane.
Intelligence: Is prodigious at magic having trained herself in the beginning at the age of 4. Has millenias' worth of experience and is not afraid to flaunt it. Even with her level of magic, she has never stopped training or trying to learn and improve herself. One of the most potent and powerful mages in existence in her planet. Even a Zodiac Knight was unsure whether he should fight her claiming that regardless of power levels, her wit would allow her to win.
Weaknesses: She's old and thus needs to rest longer. Occasionally she might slip up on a spell. Despite being knowledgeable she prefers to make her enemies give up by showing overwhelming power, often avoiding to kill. Not exactly keen on sharing her secrets or working with most. Tends to look down on anyone that isn't a mage or an artifact user. Notably one of the few mages who cannot use healing magic. Her mana recovers very slowly just by herself. |
