Merit was one of six darkeyed soldiers that Adolin Kholin selected to join a diplomatic mission to Lasting Integrity sent by the coalition of monarchs. Adolin selected trustworthy, levelheaded men that had a variety of skills, and he knew that Merit's training as a groom would be useful. Merit was present in Urithiru when the team departed and led the pack animals onto the Oathgate.
During the team's journey in Shadesmar, he removed the supplies that Gallant was carrying in order to give him a rest. Merit was presumably experienced with Ryshadium, as Gallant was known to have disdain for common grooms. Merit returned to Urithiru within a few weeks after Adolin surrendered to the honorspren.
