Professor Friedrich Gottjäger
"Merlin was an interesting character.", Friedrich starts suddenly. "There are so many stories about him, whether he existed or not, what he did, what he didn't do. We romanticize the period so much." He pauses for a solid ten seconds, seemingly finished, before he starts again. "As near as we can tell it, if Arthur and Merlin and the whole bit existed at all, it was probably about 400 or 500AD. Do you know what life was like back then in Britain?" He has another lengthy pause before he adds, "It sucked. If Camelot existed at all, it was merely a slightly more peaceful time than the years surrounding it." He pauses again for a long moment, still chewing something over. "All these stories, and books, and movies, descendent from old tales that are distorted by time. The reality was this whole "Camelot" bit just meant you weren't brutally killed and your wife raped by the time you turned twenty."
He sighs, and adds, "It's too bad I can't tell you much more than that. You may be familiar with a tablet of his that was coded. It's possible he ended up out this way, but God alone knows why." He pauses again and adds, "Time travel ethics, bah! What a bunch of nonsense." After a head shake, he finishes with, "That damn air dale should keep her thoughts to herself and just go back to flying toy planes."
