First, yesterday's results: With an overwhelming 75% of the vote, Shadowfax has eliminated Mister.
Tale of the Tape
Archimedes - wise, noble, and dependable consigliere
Fawkes - rebirth, healing, teleportation
Archimedes - owl
Fawkes - phoenix
Archimedes - Merlin
Fawkes -Albus Dumbledore
Perhaps the most compelling of all the first round match-ups. Archimedes may be one of the classic familiars of our time, having assisted none other than Merlin, but Fawkes, while lesser known, possesses truly awesome talents. The edge may go to Archimedes , but don't be surprised if we see our first upset of the tournament. Be sure to vote!
Tomorrow: Back to the Hogwarts Regional for a familiar showdown between #4 Winged Monkeys and #13 Salem.
