History: Merlin Ambrose is the legendary Merlin of King Arthur's Court. The son of the devil (a.k.a. Lord Oblivion), he ages slowly and backwards. When we first meet him, he is in the form of a ten year old boy, and has now been going by his surname for centuries. He sent the Elemental Morningstar on a quest to recover a magical sword from a dragon, as she would be immune to the dragon's fire. Much later he became an ally of the Elementals after the assassin Fantasia Faust was sent to kill them. During the time they spent together he fell in love with Morningstar, and when the villainous Shapeshifter drove her to the brink of suicide Ambrose stepped in to stop her killing herself.

Taking adult form he proposed, and she accepted. They were married shortly afterwards.
