Merlin's answers about himself were just as simple, showing him as a man, but with three images all overlapped. Magic was the simplest word for him, and the sense was of a man who changed things, trying to make them better.
All of his images were against a backdrop of warmth and honesty, and of wanting nothing more than to help them both.
