    Are Escanor glasses a magic item of Merlin that's used suppress his Sunshine magic?

    If that were the case, surely he'd wear them in his daytime form? So far we haven't seen him wear them once in that state
    Also, wouldn't they have made some sort of appearance in the Vampires of Edinburgh backstory?

    I think they're for effect (like the moustache)

    The only time we've seen Escanor day form is when he needed that form to fight someone. Otherwise he's always wearing them and every time we've seen him transfom something always happens to his glasses.

    But he's powerless in the night anyway so would they really be necessary? Since I imagine they're too small for him during the day regardless of whether he's fighting or not

    That's what I was thinking because we've never seen escy in his day form with them. In his game with galan they were cracked when galan patted his back then the following scene he wasn't already transformed. Gowther broke his glasses a second time in vaizel when the he made a crash landing on top of escanor causing his glasses to break as well. The following scenes of him in vaizel were all with out his glasses in his day form. Then there's also the fact he swiped away Gowthers glasses during their fight probably as a way to get back at and antagonize Gowther for what happened to him. In the end only times we've seen him with glasses were fringe his might form.

    Should probably mention that when he was massaging Merlin during her bath he did have his glasses and it was day time yet he didn't transform so maybe there's some truth to this theory after all.

    They always get broken before he can transform. That's why we haven't see day time escy with glasses. Although as I said before in the scene with Merlin bathing he has glasses on and it's daytime yet he still not transforming so this could be evidenced to suggests thise glasses do supresss his powers. Plus this is one of Merlin's inventions so I doubt she'd just make normal glasses that don't have any extra effect. It just wouldn't be that brilliant or anything so there's gotta be something else there.

    Also, not sure if I recall right but he didn't always need glasses right? Because iirc in his fb he didn't have any and after getting picked on he transformed. If that's true then some time after meeting Merlin and being with the sins he got it made specially for him. That could be why he didn't have glasses during then VOE. Of course it depends on the timing a sense in when exactly he joined. Like if he joined just as the team wasn't about to set off for Edinburgh then she wouldn't have the glasses made in time. And I get she was studying him for a while even during Edinburgh but he could've been a with them for a month or sth and still not have glasses you know? Who know she maybe Merlin planned on making him some then but forgot a song she often does when she's gets absorbed into other things.

    What do you think of the idea that Coffin Of Eternal Darkness and the vampire seal are hers?

    Very unlikely. Even her amber was Red and Grey Demons only. Maybe she'll create something similar in the future but I don't think she has an item like that currently.

    Idk if she would've made the vampire seal (the sarcophagus) because the vamps betrayed the demons during the war and Zel was sent to execute them but our of love for gelda he sealed them. If he's the one sealing them then surely he'd have had the sarcophagus made already and honestly I don't see Merlin making it for them especially after the implication that the demons may have had a hand in destroying her home and possibly killing her family. Even if she's the type not to concern herself with that and just focus on her research I still don't think she'd have made it unless she made it to initially seal the demons in just until she or whoever made the COED to do a more effective job. Ofc course that's assuming she already met mel and agreed to help him and the alliance. Although there is the chance she was going to sea the demons anyway but having help would ease the process. The only thing is if she really did make the sarcophagus that's assuming she knew the vamps were going to or already did betray the demons which is doubtful even with her clairvoyance and habit of monitoring the nation. Like this is sth that could've only been known if you were closely following the otherwise or better yet if you were a member of the other side. Although i must say that there is the chance that like the balors eye which she made for a royal family (possibly demon royal family) she might've made the sarcophagus to go with it. Like maybe when they were still on her good side they requested her to make several items for them and she did. Issue here is that if they asked her to do it then why didn't Fraudrin not know who she was right away?

    As for the COED it was made by all the clans wasn't it? Like each piece of the seal is representative of the different clans that took a stand against the demons so naturally shouldn't someone from each clan have made their respective pieces instead of just designating one person to make it because keep in mind it's a powerful seal so it'll require a lot of magic power. Now I'm not saying Merlin doesn't have a lot of power but at some point she would run out or the strain would be too great I feel so having others to help out lightens the burden. Ofc if only one faction made it I presume it'd have to be the goddesses (actually i checked and it was made by the goddesses) or obvious reasons but by no means does that Merlin was a goddess. There is evidence to suggest it but there's also evidence to suggest otherwise so the jury is out on this.

    Why very unlikely? Every magic item we've seen used are revealed to be Merlin creations. As for why Coffin Of Eternal Darkness is stronger than the Goddess Ambers that can easily be explained. Like revealing Merlin created the Goddess Ambers as a child. And Coffin Of Eternal Darkness as an adult.
