Predark mercies

A mercenary or Mercies, was a person who takes part in an armed conflict who is not a national or a party to the conflict and is "motivated to take part in the hostilities by the desire for private gain."


Mercies were employed by barons, traders, or those who could afford them, although well known for their combat skill, they were also unreliable, and could easily switch sides in a conflict if the price was right.
