Merric is an orphan. His parents died in an epidemic when he was just three years old. He survived and was taken into an orphanage run by the priestesses of Sehanine. It was they who taught him to sing and play. Ten years later he was apprenticed to a local minstrel troupe. When he figured out they were swindling him out of his fair share of the earnings, he ran away.
