#3 Archimedes vs. #14 Fawkes

First, yesterday's results: With an overwhelming 75% of the vote, Shadowfax has eliminated Mister.

Middle-earth Regional
Round One

#3 Archimedes


#14 Fawkes

Tale of the Tape


Archimedes - wise, noble, and dependable consigliere

Fawkes - rebirth, healing, teleportation

Advantage: Fawkes


Archimedes - owl

Fawkes - phoenix

Advantage: even


Archimedes - Merlin

Fawkes -Albus Dumbledore

Advantage: even

Bottom Line:

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.
