Merieke Ri Berit was a mysterious figure who lived during the Ice Age in Terisiare on Dominaria.

Little is known about her, save that she was a temptress who used magical powers to ensnare other creatures. Her race is in doubt; she is officially noted as a human, but her art depicts her as an elf.

Origin[edit | edit source]

According to artist Heather Hudson,[1] the card was named La Belle Dame sans Merci ("The Beautiful Woman without Mercy") in development and was inspired by a poem by John Keats[2]
