Overview: A slightly mischeavous elf from the Kingdom of Alfheim who dedicated most of his lifetime patroling the Canolbarth Forest, providing safe passage and hunting the dangers lurking in it. Though he developed many interests he is more commonly known for his knack for adventure and monster hunting, which Clan Grunalf’s trademark.

Merkel spent most of his early childhood amongst many of his family members. It was tradition that, before you began your own path you had to learn from other members in your family core. Merkel learned the most from his father, Elarion, who was a well-seasoned Ranger and respected hunter amongst the clan. His mother, Swaynee, instructed Merkel in religion and overall knowledge of natural occurrences, whereas his sister Kietra taught him what little she knew about herbalism and its usefulness in healing. This tradition was important in Merkel’s family because they were overly proud of their own achievements. Merkel’s family was widely known across Alfheim, mainly due to his father’s exploits and the small shop set up by his mother and sister, where they prepared herbs for the purpose of long term healing of illnesses and ailments, useful for when the members returned from their hunts. Laslty, Merkel was known to be very protective of his family members.
