This wiki is very much under construction. The original wiki was set to be shut down and the wiki was largely mirrored to a Fandom-based version, though most of the reference images had not yet been copied over. This migration was put on hold when it appeared the original wiki could in fact be retained, however the old wiki was lost in its entirety when the server was among the many taken down by a massive series of cyberattacks on data centers during early February, 2023. It is now being rebuilt with the launch of Hel. Sorry if it's a little messy right now!

Merril'lin is a mischievous seer in the service of the Order of the Holy Eye.
Appearance and Personality
She is a young drowussu who is attached from worldly concerns and loves playing pranks. She wears a dress that's mostly of a dark colour but with some white and red.
Biography - Arc II
She acted alongside Mal and Sati'vah in trying to help Petri'cho from being tortured by the Order of the Twin Eyes. They managed to get past Warden Miner'a and stop Rafal'za from torturing Petri'cho where they are shocked to learn Shimi'lande was murdered. Even though Mal leaves, Merril'lin stays behind to support Petri'cho.
As The District War among the laths raged, the Kyorl'solenurn took the opportunity to wage their own war against the Dutan'vir remnants. Merril'lin decided instead to leave Valla'drielle's side and seek out Sarghress spies to deliver a cautionary message<ref>http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=10389</ref>. At first, Rayata Sarghress and Sakrag Sarghress did not believe her, but Merril'lin's vision urged them to warn the leaders to end the war as soon as possible.
Upon returning to the Holy Mother's side, Merril'lin and Chime looked sheepish after Valla'drielle scolded them for not seeing an assassination attempt. Later, Merril'lin aids in freeing her fellow seer sisters Chirinide and Yakuise, but they are held back by Yuh'le<ref>Chapter 49, page 74</ref>. At first, she is explaining how the four seers should escape via carriage to Felde to be under Snadhya's protection, but Chirinide recognizes her from their previous fight in Felde, and Yuh'le turns on them. Merril'lin watches her sisters fall to the empathic attacks, and she herself smashes a window before being struck down--this allows Chiri enough flame to draw from and send Yuh'le tumbling over a ledge in flames.
In Valla'drielle's garden, Merril'lin and her sisters confront the Holy Mother and demand abdication<ref>Chapter 49, page 82</ref>.
After the War
Zala'ess had called an emergency meeting of leaders to discuss the future, and Merril'lin was sent to represent the clan. She relays Anahid's belief that it doesn't matter who leads, so long as peace is restored<ref>http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=11283</ref>. Zala'ess' proposal to the clan was one of integrating the drowussu people into,the lath populations, and restoring teaching Sharess' path in schools.
Biography - Arc III
Three years after the end of the district war, Merril'lin was sent to Shikomei to deliver news to Chirinide<ref>Chapter 53, page 10</ref>.
