Dragon Age: The First Blight
Ever since Carinus saved her and her siblings, Naevius and Faustus during a Darkspawn attack, Merina had to grow up fast. She was only 11 years old when she buried her parents and was charged to take care of her siblings, at the time 5 years old and 7 months old, respectively. She is fiercely protective of both her siblings and Carinus, who she believes is too idealistic. She is a skilled fighter and is now ready to take revenge against the Darkspawn.
