In The Merlin Conspiracy
, Grundo, whose full name is Ambrose Temple, is a gruff, eccentric young boy who lives in the King's Progress, the travelling Court of Blest
, because his mother Sybil
is a Court enchantress. He has an older sister, Alicia
, but he long ago adopted Roddy Hyde
as his preferred older sister. Grundo is dyslexic - which affects the way he does magic, as well - but very bright.
