Merric of Hollyrose is one of Keladry of Mindelan's yearmates in her training for knighthood. As a knight he serves in the Scanran War along with Kel.

Biography

Training for knighthood

His sponsor is Faleron of King's Reach. Merric is one of the boys harassed by Joren of Stone Mountain and his friends. For one they make him pick up books that they drop on purpose. Kel stands up for him and gets into a fight with the bullies. First Merric isn't happy with Kel for it as he is ashamed of being helped by anyone, let alone a girl. Later he joins their study group in Nealan of Queenscove's room and after some time Merric even becomes Kel's friend.

When the pages are on their summer camp in Merric's third year they stumble into a bandit camp. Merric, in command of the little group out for hunting, is paralized. It is Kel who takes command and saves all of them by keeping a cool head.

Knighthood

Merric passes his Ordeal of Knighthood on midwinter of 460 HE[2]. The following spring he is sent to the northern border of Tortall to fight in the Scanran War. There he is assigned to the refugee camp Kel dubs Haven, where he serves together with Kel, who is the commander of the camp, and Neal. Merric is responsible for the security outside of the camp, organising patrols.

Physical description

He is described as having red, straight hair and pale blue eyes with a long, broad nose.

Notes and references

  1. Assuming that as Kel's year-mate with no mention of him starting his training late, he was born in the same year as she was
  2. Squire states that it is 459 HE but there is some discontinuity in the book as one year to the four years they are to serve as squires is missing; thus it should 460 HE
