Artist TigrSasha recently shared multiple pinups of The Seven Deadly Sins’ Merlin.
Merlin is the Boar Sin of Gluttony and regarded as the greatest mage in Britannia.
She wields her Sacred Treasure the Morning Star Aldan, a floating orb she can summon at will.
She first appeared cloaked standing next to Arthur in the manga in Chapter 62 and would make her full debut in Chapter 83.
In the anime she appeared in a cameo in Episode 2 and would make her full appearance uncloaked in Episode 20.
Ten years before Meliodas defeats Hendrickson, she wore a full suit of armor with a helmet that resembles a horned beetle as part of the Seven Deadly Sins.
As you can see below her helmet has a rod protruding from it that leads into a set of wings. She has purplish white gloves and a long flowing navy dress with a dark blue bodice.
However, during Meliodas’ quest to reunite the Seven Deadly Sins and subsequently do battle with Hendrickson and his Holy Knights, Merlin’s costume is quite different.
She is not fully armored, but instead wears a bikini bottom, thigh high boots, and a fur-collared jacket that exposes her midriff and the middle of her chest. The jacket features heart-shaped buttons.
Merlin is one of the founding members of the Seven Deadly Sins and guided Meliodas in recruiting the rest of the team following a vision from King Bartra.
Not only is she one of the founding members of the Seven Deadly Sins, but she has quite a complicated past being alive for over 3,000 years.
She was able to manipulate both the Demon King and The Supreme Deity into granting her blessings in exchange for persuading a child with infinite magic to join their cause. Merlin would gain both of their blessings, but would renege on swaying the child to side with the Demon King or The Supreme Deity.
Not only did she manipulate the Demon King and The Supreme Deity, but she also tasked the craftsman Dabuzu to create the Coffin of Eternal Darkness in order to seal them both away.
As with the rest of the Seven Deadly Sins, Merlin would be separated from Meliodas after he ordered them to disperse following an ambush by the Liones Holy Knights.
Merlin would eventually reunite with Meliodas and the Seven Deadly Sins when she brought Arthur to Liones to free King Bartra from the manipulations of Hendrickson and the Liones Holy Knights.
Artist TigrSasha would share their pinups of Merlin to DeviantArt with the first one featuring Merlin in her more traditional outfit. However, instead of her jet black hair, TigrSasha imagines her with purple hair.
TigrSasha captioned the pinup revealing it was the winner of their June vote on Patreon. They wrote, “Meet the winner of the June vote on my Patreon! You can find many interesting versions of this image on my Patreon!”
TigrSasha would showcase one of those variants. This one shows Merlin in even less clothes featuring her in a white lingerie get up, but in the same pose as the first one.
TigrSasha also shared another variant. As seen below, this one shows Merlin with a pair of glasses in a French bunny maid lingerie get up.
It also details what TigrSasha’s Patreon backers can get depending on what tier they decide to back at.
