This article is about Merri, one of the Exiles, and cook at the Keep. For Merry, one of Those-Who-Returned, and a member of Torisen's garrison, see Merry.

Merri was a Knorth Kendar who went into exile with Ganth and was the Keep's cook. Jame remembers helping him carefully dig eyes out of potatoes.[2]

He died when Gerridon's troops stormed the Keep searching for Jame and the Book Bound in Pale Leather. Jame attempted to burn his body in a pyre along with the other dead, but not knowing the pyric rune, and with insufficient fuel, she was unsuccessful. When Torisen, Kindrie, and Willow pass through to the Haunted Lands from the White Hills while on their way to the Cataracts with the Northern Host in Dark of the Moon, Torisen gets Kindrie to use the pyric rune to burn the bodies.[1]
