Merlin the Wizard! The bird is called Merlin, and Harry Potter is a wizard, so the answer is Merlin the Wizard!

Yes, it’s everyone’s old beardy face! In King Arthur times, Merlin lived in a cave and generally helped out the Knights of the Round Table by casting the occasional hocus-pocus now and then to help. King Arthur and his buddies spent their times helping DIDs (Damsels in Distress), talking about helping DIDs and helping a few more. Merlin just sat in his cave and cast an  abracadabra to help fight the monster or cure illnesses to help around town. One of the  most famous King Arthur stories is the Green Knight who challenged him to a contest: the Green Knight would let someone chop his head off, then said somebody would have to go to his castle and have HIS head chopped off. One brave chap named Gwain accepted this challenge and basically had a big adventure.

So, do YOU have the heart to be a Knight of the Round Table? In my next post I will be posting questions to see if your’re worthy enough…
