Okay, I think I've talked myself out of it and will go back to my previous choice, Phinneas. But his sister will still be Beatrice, which totally matters as a backstory for a character whose age I haven't even determined yet.

Because then his sister (and Guy, when he's feeling particularly chummy) can call him Finn.

Nat: Finn? Your name is Finn? I must say that doesn't suit you.
Merton: It's short for Phinneas, Your Highness.
Bea: Actually, it's short for Finicky, which is what everyone called him when we were kids.
Nat: Ah, now that suits you.

Current Mood: confused confused
Current Music: freedom--wham!

Are you writing about how Merton came into Guy's service? Because unless there's something I'm missing, it would have had to be post-canon, which is separated from your current story only be a few years.

I'm just trying to develop him better as a character, even if just in my head, so that I know what I'm doing with him. He's pretty one-dimensional.
