In the show Edit

Book 13

Archie in Merlin's cottage

Archimedes is a talking owl that takes care of Tamara and the other Jewel Riders as counselor and chaperon in Merlin's absence. He is Tamara's constant companion, the wise but nearsighted owl that used to sit on Merlin's shoulder when not busy with housekeeping of their house.

Archie and the girls

Archie has taken it upon himself to replace Merlin as the girls' teacher while they struggle to learn the powers of their Enchanted Jewels in their fight to defeat the evil sorceress Lady Kale and bring back Merlin. It is been some time since Archie has performed magic, so he does not get most of it right, however, his kind words and support always mean a lot.

Archie constantly worries about the Jewel Riders and gets very upset if they even think about going anywhere without their feathery chaperon. However, he is after all, only an owl, and not much of an expert on what teenage girls are thinking and planning. But he does his best, and the girls love Archie and know he will always be there for them.

Behind the scenes Edit

Archie was voiced by John Beach in English. His voice actors in other languages includes Jean-Francois Kopf in French and Pietro Ubaldi in Italian.

In a very early version known as Enchanted Camelot, there has been a small golden-colored owl for a character that would become Tamara. The "Jewel Quest, Part I" storyboard images show Archie without cloting, with different glasses, and a narrowed beak. In the Enchanted Camelot scripts, Archie could only speak telepathically like the other magical animals, and Tamara ("Melody") had to tell the others what he was saying.

Legacy Edit

Ozzie
