He was a soldier who discovered he was immortal after having his heart pierced, and then immediately healed, during an ancient battle. He lived for at least six thousand years to follow, taking a number of aliases, including Flint. (TOS episode: "Requiem for Methuselah")
- Strangers from the Sky spells his name as "Ahkarin", but the note that this was the same person as Merlin the Wizard strongly suggests that reference was to this same character.
