Lauriel the Vampire Slayer
Merrick is a member of the Watchers Council and is the Watcher of the Slayer Lauriel Lark.
Merrick was raised from a young age to be a Watcher. His father taught him “a lot of subtleties the Council never bothered with” regarding training, legends, and research. In his lifetime, he trained five Slayers, all of whom he saw “ripped apart” by the dark forces they were destined to combat. His previous Slayer was lost to a powerful vampire master named Lothos, whom he fears may soon return.
