As Seen from the TAMD / UNS universes
The Avalon universe is chiefly known to the inhabitants of the TAMD / UNS universes from three events:
- During Fistful of Finndos, Corrine teamed up with Juri of Avalon and her half-brother, Gideon of Avalon (along with Roderick of Gumi-Amber?, but his universe doesn't matter here) to stop the Logrus Squid and the MacFinndos?.
- Shizumaru of Amber and Michelle were saved by Angus of Avalon, who was looking for Juri, during a disastrous trip into Embra.
- Shizumaru of Amber and Walker and Joan of Avalon were yanked into the events of the Logrusfall War, and teamed up to escape from the fall of that universe.
It seems to be a subsidiary universe, whose primal pattern sits inside another Amber's realm of shadow. Ruled now by King Meredith, it seems to currently be facing some minor crises after a period of peace in the wake of an attempted conquest by the mad Ashen Prince.
Unlike our Amber, it seems to be largely Outsider free. There are several theories as to why this is so.
- The Outsiders fear Pongo too much to ever attempt to conquer it. You don't know who Pongo is? You're lucky. They know, and they fear.
- Alternately, perhaps Pongo IS an Outsider, and the others respect his turf.
- The Outsiders don't want a universe so degenerate as to have produced Walker.
- Tess dumped Yog-Sothoth when he was little, and he just can't stand to come near her anymore.
- The Outsiders cannot stand the light of the Mike-Teletubby Sun.
