Pantheon / Magic

Magic and Spells

The House of Magic really isn't all that different from the Houses of Knowledge and Narrative, as both Houses often find themselves having the same motivations. As a result, it is very common to see Deities from outside Houses confusing the House of Magic for Knowledge, Narrative and vice versa. Rumors persist that the three Houses are actually connected to each other via secret passage while others go even further to claim that all three Houses are in fact housed in the same building. However, their usage is much debate among those who believe these theories on whether Magic, Knowledge or Narrative is dominant, culminating in numerous magical duels in the halls.

Embryo is not allowed even 100 miles near this house, as he can use mind control on anyone who relies on any form of magic. Everyone is afraid of what he could do if left unchecked.

Is the opposite septrum of the House of Science. Some members tend to rub the others the wrong way thanks to the "magic vs. science" fiasco. Of course, there are also those that use these hand in hand, and reactions from both Houses are mixed on this.

  • A unusual magic portal one day showed up in the House of Magic. Some deities wanted to know who created the portal. Suddenly, the portal revealed Merlin, the legendary wizard, whom many have researched on. Many magical deities were overjoyed that Merlin, the legendary wizard, ascended into the pantheon.
  • When he searched for and encountered King Arthur, he was puzzled as to why the King was... a female. He didn't mind that the King was a female, saying that she is still the King Arthur he'll always admire.
    • Mordred is a different story; Mordred was a homunculus created by Morgana through Arturia's semen after the legendary wizard changed her to a male.
  • Many evil wizards and sorcerers such as Jafar once tried to sneak into his temple to discover and wonder he had any black magic to learn trample their enemies. Anticipating that this would happen, Merlin sent Harry and his friends to drive them out of the House of Magic.
  • Was defeated by a magical rock. (no joke)
  • There was one time where he was a woman. While Sonic himself is puzzled why he appears as a man, he still has no problems befriending the Legendary Wizard of Arthurian Legend. However, it's revealed that the female Merlin he was Merlin's granddaughter.
  • Rumors have been abound that there was a time where he was a handsome guy. Some of the naughty folks in the House of Love and Otherness investigate to see if the rumors are true (it is). Then again, Merlin's a Shapeshifter, so he can look however he damn well pleases, if he wants to be a handsome young man, he'll be a handsome young man, if he wants to be a woman, he'll be a woman.
    • There were also rumors that he is perverted. This stems from the information that he was a half-incubus born from either a woman and an incubus. The wizard has said nothing on this matter yet. Other rumors say that he's a spawn of Satan.
    • Then again, in one reality a particular standout incident that seems to confirm his perversion was the certain "alteration" to Artoria that resulted in Mordred's birth.
  • Has often been seen with a Cath Palug familiar, named Fou.
  • During some of his visits, Merlin had several wacky speeches expressing his love for humans. He can sometimes be seen with Flonne to practice love lectures.
  • Turns out there was one alternate Merlin who had to hide his magic or risk being prosecuted by the magic hating Uther Pendragon. In that universe, he was much younger and nearly the same age as Arthur. The two had really good chemistry with one another.
  • Has not said anything about Nimue. The person who betrayed him. Since then, the wizard has tried his best to stay away from her in case she sends anyone else to steal his magic.
    • Merlin did learned that the Nimue in the pantheon actually regretted her action and that she only betrayed Merlin because she thought it would save Camelot. Now, she trying to atone for her action. Because of this, Merlin does have a small positive words for her. He is still wary of her.
  • It's been stated that he can see the future. Some of the deities of the House of Time And Space visit him for some Time Travel trips.
  • Merlin is very jealous when he hears that Odin did the whole "Hide a magic sword and do a multi-generational plot" first.
  • Harry Dresden, while not personally familiar with this Merlin, knows of the Merlin from his universe, where he was able to create a multi-dimensional prison, Demonreach, by building it once in five different time periods simultaneously, interweaving and entangling millions of magic spells to build a prison to contained the most powerful and evil of entities.
  • The Archwizard is seeking other practitioners of the magical arts (Arcane, Holy, Natural, Astrological, etcetera ) in order to create a magical advisory council to the GUAG. He has hopes that with the huge variety of Gods within the Pantheon that at least a few of his magical equals could be persuaded to join.
  • Regardless of his form, Merlin doesn't like it if you call him an "old loom". Cid Highwind made this mistake once, leading Merlin to destroying his computer with a Firaga.
  • While usually in his "classic wizard" form, Merlin would sometimes make himself appear younger. The younger self varies from either being very pretty or very bishie. He gladly admits it's to hit on some of the Goddessess in the Pantheon.
  • Remembers a time when he had to hide his magic in Camelot for fear of being killed. That's because Uther Pendragon had a vendetta against magic since it killed his wife. Of course, that's because it was he who use magic on his own wife to conceive Arthur Pendragon.
    • Merlin did not like it when he heard of one deity calling himself Anti-Mage, who wants to kill destroy all magic users in the Pantheon.
  • One other well-known fact of Merlin is: He tends to get his jollies by messing with people. Though he always tends to keep said messing with people not particularly harmful.
