|Eighth Golden Soul|
Meri makes her debut in the first installment of the Golden Soul series. She is the main protagonist of the game.
Meri makes her first crossover appearence in the Fantendo Smash Bros spin-off Fantendo Coliseum. Her moveset is heavily based off her moves and abilities from Rise of a Legend with some elements from further games, most notably Eclipsed Skies. She is among the twelve heroes required to open the Great Coliseum.
Powers and Abilities
Merideth is skilled with swords and weapons of the like as she was trained by her father since a young age and further trained in the Oshan Pugna Camp. However, she also has experience with other weapons, mostly notably the bow and spear. She shows excellent aim with both weapons and can often hit targets within her first shot, but has much more difficulty when the target is moving.
The Golden Blades, the primary weapons of Meri, are her most valuable tool in combat. She obtains the first sword in Rise of a Legend. It has powers over light and allows Meri to fire magical light beams, though only one at a time and must be recharged after constant use. It can also be thrust into the ground and released to unleash a wave of energy, though this too requires charge. The second, obtained in Eclipsed Skies, has power over shadow and provides similar abilities to the light blade, only shadow-based. The two can be combined to create the Blade of Legends, which has the power over both light and shadow.
Meri is very agile, able to perform backflips and rolls with ease and is also a fast runner. She possesses fairly good strength, able to push and pull and even lift heavier objects. Despite this, she lacks skills in hand-to-hand combat, as seen numerous times in the Golden Soul manga. She also seems to only have average stamina, as she tires out after most major battles and usually most rest for a time before returning to battle.
The Soul Gauntlets further increases Meri's abilites. Again, the first is obtained along with the light blade and the second with the shadow blade. The light gauntlet allows her to store multiple tools and objects by transforming them into light and absorbing them into itself so it can be summoned for later use. Both increases Meri's stamina; but Meri is still tired out by long, drawn out battles. The light guantlet makes Meri more durable, able to withstand far more damage than most humans thanks to its magic. Dark magic has next to no effect on Meri thanks to this protection, and the shadow guantlet even lets Meri absorb blasts of this magic and launch them back at her opponent. She is also granted with great strength by the shadow gauntlet.
Later, Meri gains other abilities from various tools and artifacts. She gains the ability to use the Angel Wings after claiming the Icarus Feather, allowing her the gift of flight for extended periods of time. In The Siren Sea, Meri uses the Siren Armor, which allows her to breathe underwater and gives her greater swimming abilities, for a majority of her adventure until she gains the Siren Amulet that allows her to turn into a siren herself.
