Merlin-I-am




Son of Corwin of Amber and Dara of Chaos. Looks a great deal like his father, but wears gray and purple. Originally intended to be the future ruler of Amber, he got cornered into becoming the King of Chaos instead. (Prince of Chaos by Roger Zelazny.) He's a good person, who's just trying to do his own little projects without bothering anyone or having anyone bother him. Is that so much to ask for? But does he get his wish? No. Instead, he has to weather assassination attempts, deal with disgruntled sorcerors and put up with overbearing relatives. Trained as a sorceror and gentleman in Chaos, when he lived on Earth, he attended Berkeley and later designed computers. How can you not like a computer geek with the power to level cities and the social graces of a prince?

Which Amberite are you?

Even though the Merlin saga is generally disliked (I once read someone describing it as 'powergamers in Amber'), I like the character of Merlin a lot.
Indeed, a computer geek with the power to level cities and the social graces of a prince -- something to aspire to. I'm already a computer geek, so I'm already one third on the way. ;)
