Merlin was a Wizendren who had pale blond hair, green eyes and light peach skin. He had very thick eyebrows and his beard and mustache took up most of his face. He wore a orange robe with a hood that had a dark orange rim around where his face would stick out, orange rims on his sleeves and on the robe itself and making it resemble a jacket. There are also some light orange dots that go around the sleeves and above the rim where Merlin's feet are. He wore brown shoes on his feet.
He was originally going to wear a light blue robe then a orange robe before he got his final design.
In his teenage years, Merlin and another Wizendren named Solomon was rivals for the affection of Shauntele. Shauntele eventually chose Merlin and they began dating, leaving Solomon bitter and jealous. 3 years prior to the beginning of the series, Merlin was murdered by his own son.

Merlin and Shauntele met each other during their Magic Academy days and they have been friends for a few years. He did have a huge crush on her. One day, after Magic Academy was done for the day, she forgot her wand but Merlin picked it up and gave it back to her. This act of kindness unknowingly worked in his favor by winning the heart of Shauntele.
