Merida is a dancer in Ixa'Taka.
Merida can be found at the tavern in Horteka. After Vyse finds the Message she sent from a balloon and obtains the Delphinus, after which he searches for crew members, Merida joins Vyse's crew to avenge her father's death at the hands of the Valuan Empire. Despite her inability to fight, she hopes to aid those who fight on the side of good by bringing joy through her dancing.
Merida joins the crew as a jester and, while active, increases the value of the Delphinus, which is completely useless since the ship cannot be sold.
During the Blue Rogues Attack, she spins onto the screen and does a short dance, healing the party.
Merida is the name of the capital of the Mexican state of Yucatan.
