The shy yet passionate member of our lovely troupe of goons.
Preferring to hide away in the sidelines, Merlin doesn't stick out much. She avoids conflict and goes along with the flow, agreeing to do most things that are asked of her. Merlin is a people-pleaser to a fault. This is due to a desire to live life making as little waves as possible, but anxiety plays a role in it too.
In any given room of people, Merlin would probably be the one paying the most attention to their surroundings. She has a keen eye and an intuitive sense for what makes people tick. This has allowed her to avoid tricky situations so far, but she does tend to get flak for being too passive.
Any intense emotions are covered up by a mild smile. And they do get very intense, very often. Much of Merlin's energy is spent holding back exuberant fireworks of elation and crushing tidal waves of negativity. At this point it seems impossible to express any of these feelings anymore, but it's okay.
It's important that things stay okay.
Merlin is plenty capable of accomplishing most things she sets out to do (save for like... the social stuff), and has achieved great success in self-sufficiency. She's managed to live life without depending much on others so far, but the idea of relying on someone every now and then seems kind of nice... the thought of it is quickly brushed away.
