History[edit | edit source]
Early life[edit | edit source]
Before joining the Bozjan Resistance, hers was a life not unlike many of her compatriots. Her parents died in the Bozja Incident, and thereafter she was provided for through the Empire's welfare system, receiving a standard imperial education. From the first, her marks were far and above those of her peers, and it was not long before she found herself transferred into a special program for promising young military cadets. It became clear, then, she was born for the battlefield, excelling not only in martial prowess, but tactical planning as well. Mock battles often found her the victor, even when matched with the most seasoned of her seniors.
Indeed, she was a student of seemingly unlimited potential, and it was thanks to the red mage Lovro Slanasch that she would find a focus for her energies. The blending of white and black magic was practically second nature to her, and as her mentor, Lovro would see her aptitude for the art of red magic flourish. Meryall learned a great deal under her instructor's tutelage, and when he believed her ready, he eventually taught her the truth of how Bozja was being stripped of its resources. How the Empire robbed the people of their freedom. The revelation reawakened a longing for home she had long since forgotten.
Her opportunity to return would come shortly after Lovro was accused of spying on behalf of the Bozjan Resistance. Before he could be made to stand trial, a small contingent of Resistance soldiers launched an assault on the imperials' encampment in the dead of night. With their help, Lovro made good his escape, and Meryall took advantage of the chaos to defect as well.
When the Resistance stormed Castrum Lacus Litore, Meryall was tasked with cutting off the imperials' Dalmascan supply line by means of a surprise attack at the port city of Kralja. And it was because of this mission that she is the only of Gunnhildr's Blades who escaped the influence of Queen Gunnhildr.
Meryall rejoins the resistance in Zandor to help them route the IVth legion from their lands for good. Meryall and a contingent of soldiers travel to the Western Plateau and encounter her teacher Lovro. She realizes that the reports of his enthrallment were true and intends to defeat him and capture him in battle. They fight Lovro but is surprised that an enemy uses the same skills as him and readies Crimson Scourge. She senses a surge in the Aether and warns her soldiers to get back, only for them to die in the explosion. She exclaims that his tempering has only increased his powers and eventually defeats him. Unfortunately he teleports away upon defeat, and Meryall vows to capture and cure him next time.
Meryall encounters him again in the Northern Plateau this time she is focused and intent on his capture. They do battle and again Lovro readies Crimson Scourge, this time Meryall says the same incantation and uses hers faster, knocking her master to the ground and subduing him. Before he can teleport away again, she orders her soldiers to bind him and teleport him to the main camp to be cured.
During the raid on the Dalriada, Meryall participates in the invasion and assists the Warrior of Light. During the raid a Magitek Scorpion blocks their path and increases its defense. Noticing this Meryall uses Crimson Scourge to pierce through its defenses and Fran finishes it off with Nighthawk. For the rest of the invasion she holds back soldiers while the Warrior of Light seeks out Menenius and the Allagan weapon. She escapes the destruction the Diablo Armament causes and returns to camp.
