Mercy is Kit's cousin. She is lame after an illness when she was a child. Mercy has difficulties in getting around. She very rarely leaves her home because of this. Despite her disability, she is very hardworking and does more than her fair share of work in the house.
Mercy, with her calm and sweet ways, is the family's staying force. She is morally very strong. Never does she have a bitter moment. She loves her family profoundly and can not take seeing any of them hurt. Mercy is sweet and understanding.
