Merle has lead a simple (of sorts), repetitive life inside the Oasis as her parents travel, leaving her to more or less or own devices- although well cared for, with no siblings to share her daily life with. It's not really her parents fault per say that Merle has been left behind- it was their wish to travel to many different regions when they were poorer, and had never had the chance to really experience life as young parents. Merle had declined to go, feeling that her parents could use time away from having to look after her- and also so that she could have a little more freedom. That backfired when they traveled too far for her to contact them, resulting in her being unable to go out of the Nyx Oasis- she ventures out of her house less and less, growing impatient with the materialistic minds of her neighbors in the region. Merle is able to manage on her own well enough- she makes a decent cook, cleans occasionally, sleeps regularly- she's allowed to access her parent's account for any funds she needs. The soap making takes away some of the boredom as she is able to experiment with scents and ingredients- her mother had taught her the basics years ago and it had gone on from there.
She has many friends, but none that she is particularly close to- nor any romantic interests. The usual talk in Nyx Oasis is something that she isn't very skilled in, and doesn't fit into the social norms either. Has never had her own pokemon as it was something that she had never 'got around to', reluctant to venture out. She's just gotten her act together (and gotten too sick of the oasis) and figured that if it didn't work out, she could always just come home. The lack of human contact that Merle has in Nyx Oasis has left her alone too often- the silence and solitary confinement of sorts became too much to bear, and so she decided to simply hope that her parents could do with a note saying where she had gone when they come back.
Hope I haven't left anything out or accidentally did something wrong! e u e;; <33 (her name is a reference to Sylvia Plath! c: )
