One of the Great Houses that comprise the Areth’kon. It is a small and relatively uninfluential House. They are known for their weaponless styles of fighting, including the use of hands and feet. As a smaller House, they are allied to House Fel’Mekrin, and therefore at constant odds with House Le’Manon. The crest of House Mer’Chien features a golden hawk representing the birds that roost on the face of their barracks.
