Three facts about Merge:
- Merge’s ability allows him to reshape objects into weapons at will. Size is always a factor.
- He favors bo staffs, shields, and clubs over sharp weapons. Merge is against killing, even bandits.
- Merge’s son, Koda, is fourteen and considered an unofficial member of Wave Four. He has a crush on Megyn, Reflect and Jump’s daughter.
My thoughts on Merge:
Merge is an interesting character in that his name was chosen before his ability–but once I found the name, I knew it had to belong to someone who could use alchemy. There are three others in the TCoLD universe with an ability that is or involves alchemy, and all but one are demons. With Merge, his ability is limited transmutation. He can transform everyday objects into weapons; however, size and composition matter.
Merge is young at heart, as seen by his choice in friendships. He practically taught Chase how to be the ultimate prankster, even though the Wave Two porter is rather tame about his playful nature. Freeze practically lives at the Little Bear-Morgan household, and teaches Koda and the other kids how to play guitar. Koda–who calls Freeze “Uncle Fred”–sees the two men as friends, and often seeks advice from them.
For those of you who don’t know, Merge is a supporting character in my trilogy Saturn Rising, which is the first installment of The Chronicles of Life & Death. The first book, Aquarius, is available now on Amazon as an e-book and paperback. You can even read it all for free with Kindle Unlimited! Learn more here.
