Leaving Old Verses New
keeps this site and its author alive.
This is an attempt to capture for reference a character paper snapshot of the character Omigger, a supporting character in the Multiverser novels who debuts in Verse Three, Chapter One. He returns (spoiler alert?) as Merlin in Old Verses New, and again in...that would be telling. This character sheet includes everything that is confirmed about him, plus a few extrapolations, in those first two books, and thus represents him as he is when Nimue captures him.
The picture was dug up on the Internet as an approximate image of him; it's obviously not perfect, but suffices.
Some of this information is extrapolated based on the milieu and the author's perceptions of the character.To assist the referee, some entries include at least one coded reference to a chapter or chapters in which the item is mentioned; thus by cross-referencing with the story you can determine the details. The chapters are identified by which character's story is being told, and thus most of those here begin with "S" for Slade; this is followed by a three-digit number indicating the chapter number for that character, not the chapter number for the book. Thus if you want to find the first reference to his name, you read here that it appears in S009, and on the index page for the novel you search for the text "Slade 9" and that will take you to the link for that chapter. Obviously the chapters beginning "K" are Joe's story, and thus "Kondor", and those beginning "H" are Lauren's story, "Hastings", and those beginning "B" are Derek's story, "Brown". The first novel ends with Kondor 41, Slade 42, and Hastings 43; the second contains Hastings 44 through 95, Kondor 42 through 96, and Brown 1 through 55.
A.K.A.: Merlin H048, also suggests Lauren might call him sir, Pendragon, lord, sire, teacher, or anything else if he knows she means him, but better if it’s respectful.
A.K.A.: The Meddler Himself H087 by Tubrok.
