    Default Who imprisoned...

    ...Maerlyn?

    Was it Walter?


    A hound will die for you, but never lie to you. And he'll look you straight in the face.

    It was wasn't Walter, he was playing games with Tim and as Maerlyn says, he'll be punished for his foolery. It's not actually said properly who trapped him, but I do believe it was the Crimson King himself.

    Yeah, Walter was the guy who collected taxes basically, in that story. And didn't Maerlyn say it was the monster in the tower? that would be the CK.

    It definitely wasn't Walter. Maerlyn says one of the Red King's emissaries caught him. We don't know who the emissary was - could be just an original character or, if you like finding connections, it could have been Leland Gaunt as this particular emissary was described as playing the part of a wandering peddler, a description used for Gaunt in Needful Things and also Gaunt's form in Mid-World, if the Peddlers Moon poem is to be believed:

    Late summer moon
    Huge and orange
    And the Peddler, who comes out of the Nones
    With his sack of squealing souls
    (Leland Gaunt carries a sack of squealing souls in Needful Things.)

    However, it's stated that once he was caught it was the Crimson King himself who changed Maerlyn into a tiger, albeit from afar.

    I find myself wondering, why a tiger? If you wanted to humiliate your enemy wouldn't you choose something less powerful and embarrassing like a rabbit or something, although mass might be an issue there.

    On the other hand maybe the Red King purposeful chose a powerful creature to rub in the fact that in the cage the tiger's power would avail him nothing. He might as well be a rabbit.

    Perhaps it was Nimue from the original King Arthur legend! Only instead of being trapped in a cave as he is in our world of King Arthur, he was turned into a tiger in Roland's world of King Arthur! !
