    - Merlin is not a human. She is Bellialins’s daughter. According to Wikipedia:

    “ Belial (also known as Beliar) is a term occurring in the Hebrew Bible which later became personified as the devil in Jewishand Christian texts.” It also means “worthless”.

    I researched a bit more and It seems like Belial was responsible for the sins of pride, arrogance and madness. Basically, Escanor’s sin.

    Hey this is My Merlin, Meliodas & Elizabeth theory.

    Nerobasta said the Demons & the Goddess came 2 a truce/treaty
    [​IMG]
    what if during this period Meliodas & Elizabeth got together & had a kid in Belialuin Merlin hometown & the DK or whoever had this area destroyed (by the Ten Commandments most likely which is why Merlin freak out when Meliodas mention them)
    [​IMG]
    & Merlin was the only survivor. Then Meliodas officially betray the Ten Commandments because remember Gowther knows Meliodas betrayed the Commandments because of someone he loves
    [​IMG]
    so either Meliodas told Gowther why he is doing what he is doing or Elizabeth was there with him which I doubt.
    This will also tie in with the blush face Elizabeth & Meliodas had in chapter 201

    I´d say she is from another sub-set (or even ancestor) race of the demons, just like the vampires.
    I would vote more on ancestors because humans don´t even understand their language, which they seem to have no problem with demon language.

    One thing that I find nice in retrospect is that scene where all the things go around her when meliodas mentions the 10 Commands, we all assumed she was just being her curious/"gluton" for knowledge self, now we know that it was problally rage

    The truce was because of Meliodas IIRC. There was a war between both clans before, meaning that he and the other Commandments were fighting. Nakaba stated that among the Sins Mel knows Merlin the longest, which means that if she is his daughter, the Commandments didn't exist before the truce or Meliodas didn't know Gowther back then but since Gowther is one of the original Commandments the former is more likely. That's the only possible hole I see in your theory, but I am remembering everything correctly.

    I like your theory about Beliaruin.

    There is also the fact that she has a natural resilience to the Commandments, something that Mel doesn't even have. Unless, of course, that is the power of Demon/Goddess Hybrids.

    There is something about the theory that seems off to me, but I can't quite pinpoint it. I think it's the part about Mel and Elizabeth potentially having a child.

    The story so far hasn't really shown enough evidence to make me believe that Mel had a child he cared about. Mainly because, back during the Druid arc, it seems Liz dying had more emotional weight to him than anything else in his life, such as the death of his first child or, maybe, Elizabeth 1.0.

    I also suspect that Gowther is also from Beliluin, or at least, related to it in some form of fashion, given the amount of knowledge Merlin has about him and his origins. Which makes me think that Beliluin was destroyed sometime after Mel's defection and around the same time Gowther left. I think this is also the reason Merlin takes such care of him. Besides her, he's the last remnant of Beliluin. But I don't think the Commandments know that.

    Merlin told us earlier only a goddess could remove a commandment curse so if she was a hybrid of both it still fits.

    If Meliodas is Merlin father & Merlin is clearly jealous because a 6 year old kid is getting 2 much gifts then Meliodas was a terrible father 2 Merlin growing up who was probably more concern about 1st Elizabeth death then anything else.

    Ah, I forgot about that.

    Then, sure, it might be possible Merlin is a hybrid. Beliluan could have been a "safe haven" for demons and goddesses who wanted nothing to do with the war and their hybrid children. I still don't think Mel and Elizabeth 1.0 had a child (though they could've been expecting), but I could see them planning to move there after things settled down.

    Merlin must of confessed to the supreme demon Mel it's the one which makes sense.

    Well judging by her words I get the feeling they were a fling. Which I can't see good Meliodas being in after he fell in love with Elizabeth. And her age being the other reason.
