108 Merlinus

The merchant who has an abundance of knowledge and business ability
A travelling merchant who peddles goods from all over the continent. He was attacked by bandits near Caelin territory, and was rescued by Eliwood’s group who were passing by. Because he had always dreamed of serving nobles for a long time, he pleaded Hector to leave supply management to him. This sudden request was met with just as quick approval, and he joined the group.

As expected as someone with great business skills, he has a very sociable personality. He is at his core a very timid person. In a support conversation with Vaida, one can catch a glimpse of his cowardice as he tries to curry favor with her out of fear.
In conversations with Marcus, who is of his same generation, the two repeatedly make reference to their loyalty to Eliwood. Also, talking to Nino allows one to feel Merlinus’s kinder side.
After the war, he set up a shop in Ostia that was quickly shut down, and went back to staying with Eliwood.

豊富な知識を持ち、商才に秀でる商人
大陸各地で色々な品物を売り歩き、旅していた商人。キアラン領の端地で山賊に襲われていたところを、通りかかったエリウッドたちに助けられる。長年貴族の家に仕えることを夢見ていたため、荷物管理を頼みたいというヘクトルの唐突な申し出を、二つ返事で快諾して一行に加わる。

商才に長けているだけに、人当たりのいい商売人といった性格だ。根は真面目な小心者で、ヴァイダとの支援会話では彼女を恐れて必至に機嫌をとる様子がうかがえる。
同年代のマーカスとは話も噛み合うようで、改めてエリウッドへの忠義を誓う。またニノとの会話では、マリナスの優しい一面が感じられる。
戦いの後には、オスティアで商売を始めたが店をつぶし、エリウッドの元で厄介になる。
