054 Merlinus

The master of miscellaneous matters in the United Lycian Army
An official who has worked for Pherae for a long time. He still advises the young Roy, and at the same time handles the army’s goods and merchandise, travelling with Roy to the front lines. He is very well informed in world affairs, being very helpful to the group. He is a little timid but fiercely loyal to Roy, and is busy helping him every day.

Before Merlinus served House Pherae, he was a merchant who travelled the world. He gives useful advice to Roy who is ignorant to the ways of the world. As expected, he is well versed in everything regarding the Dragons, legendary weapons, and the history of the various locales they visit.
He also has a knack for gathering information via gossip and talk about the changing state of the world that comes to him. It seems he has a peculiar way of gathering information.

長年フェレ家に仕える官吏。まだ若いロイの助言役兼輸送隊として軍の荷物管理を受け持ち、ロイと共に戦地へ赴く。世間や世界情勢について詳しく、物知りなので何かと重宝される。あわれてもので小心なところもあるが忠誠心が強く、ロイの役に立とうと日々忙しく働く。

フェレ家に仕える前は旅の商人であったマリナスは、世間知らずのロイにとって貴重な助言役だ。その博識ぶりは驚きの一言で、竜や神将器の言い伝えはもちろん、各地方の情勢や歴史に至るまでありとあらゆることに精通している。
また情報収集の能力も高く進軍先で流れている噂から変化していく世界情勢まで随時、情報を仕入れている。何やら独自の調査手段を持っているかとも思われる。
