Merlin was a wizard, and King Arthur's tutor and advisor, and one of the greatest and most famous wizards of all time.
He is the biological son of Oberon and a Welsh noblewoman.
Merlin was begotten by Oberon upon a human woman (a Welsh noblewoman) in 5th century Britain, and grew up to become a powerful wizard. He took the young Arthur Pendragon under his wing and educated him, preparing him for his role as the man who would build Camelot and become one of Britain's greatest rulers.
According to the legend as told by Shari, in the year 500, Merlin and King Pelles of Castle Carbonek met with the Irish prince Fergus and persuaded him to loan them the Stone of Destiny, so that they could use it to set up the Sword in the Stone for Arthur. After it had fulfilled its purpose, Merlin and Pelles brought the Stone to the island of Iona. ("Rock & Roll")
Merlin and Oberon have difficult relations, although the details are not as yet known. Nevertheless, Merlin has done Oberon an important service at some point in the past, which Oberon repaid by granting King Arthur a haven in Avalon following his last battle. Merlin is currently imprisoned in his Crystal Cave, although its whereabouts are unknown; he became trapped there by Nimue at some point during or possibly shortly after Arthur's reign.
During his time of freedom, Merlin created the Scrolls of Merlin, which record much of his life, including his tutoring of the young Arthur. He stored them in a Welsh cave, along with various other belongings of his, such as a lyre.("A Lighthouse in the Sea of Time") He may have also contributed spells to the Grimorum Arcanorum.
At present, Merlin is the object of a quest that King Arthur and Griff have embarked upon. ("Pendragon", "Rock & Roll") Arthur, Griff, and Blanchefleur will eventually find him and free him from the Crystal Cave, after which he will rejoin Arthur.
As a halfling, Merlin can use both human and Avalonian
magic, but never at the same time or on the same thing. He is very powerful as far as mortals go, but not by the standards of Oberon's Children.
