Mercy is a Shard of Adonalsium that has not been Splintered and whose Vessel is unknown.[1]


Like all Shards, Mercy was created at the Shattering of Adonalsium, and picked up by an unknown Vessel.[2] It is not known what Mercy did directly after their Ascension, or where they settled, if they settled at all.

Mercy was involved in a battle between Odium and Ambition, which resulted in a wound upon the Spiritual Realm and ultimately in Ambition's Splintering. This clash had profound effects on Threnody.[3]

Some time around the True Desolation, Harmony reached out to Mercy about the threat posed by Odium, at Hoid's request, but became troubled by Mercy as a result of their exchange.[1][4]


  • Before Aona's Shard was known (and well before it was known that Mercy is a Shard), fans speculated its Intent might be Mercy.[5] It was later revealed Aona's Shard is Devotion.[6][7]
