Role in Grimm Eclipse Edit
Dr. Merlot serves as the main antagonist of the game, as shown throughout the entire campaign. He formally starts talking to the players at the end of Chapter 7: The Island of Dr. Merlot, and doesn't stop yammering to the team until the end of the Campaign.
He communicates to the players through scroll.
Not much is known about Dr. Merlot outside of his work. He worked at Merlot Industries as a brilliant scientist, but was supposedly lost in the collapse of Mountain Glenn.
As the player makes their way through the Campaign, however, they learn that it wasn't a simple Grimm attack that caused the fall of Mountain Glenn, but rather Dr. Merlot himself. He needed test subjects, and his supply was running low, so he attracted more Grimm. He did nothing to help the citizens of Mountain Glenn that fled underground in the ensuing chaos.

- When the credits have stopped rolling, 'THE END... or is it?' appears as Dr. Merlot begins to laugh. This only happens if the player or players have picked up at least 30 artifacts. If the player or players have not, it only states 'THE END'.
- He is the only character in the Campaign that is not immediately identified by scroll.
