    Commander-in-training

    Following in his father's footsteps, Merrick Leghorn has proven himself in
    recent years as both a capable leader and tactician.  Merrick lacks the extreme
    paranoia that haunts his father, but he is very cautious about the realities of
    warfare and the darker side of politics.  With role models like his parents, Von
    Sturmer, and friend Decker Tressle, Merrick has been granted with all of the
    understandings of what is required of his position as a leader.
    Merrick was taught Mech piloting at a young age.  He is a gifted gunner and a
    capable pilot.  Overall he prefers medium or light Mechs because they are
    easier to handle.  However his incredibly accurate aim serves him best when he
    has the kind of arsenal provided by assault Mechs.  As a result, Merrick has
    decided to pilot his father's 85-ton Stalker.  The choice has been advantageous
    in many ways.  The Mech represents the entire team as a symbol of continuity,
    handed down over the years between mother, father, and now son.  The
    upgraded Mech also carries young Merrick's favorite weapon, the extended
    range (or ER) PPC.
    With the recent partnership of the Acer's Hueys and the Strider's Strikers,
    Merrick's future as a team leader seems more secure than ever.  With plans to
    clear their name succeeding and having proven the betrayal enacted upon their
    unit in 3039 by House Kurita, the Hueys have built a brighter future for their unit
    and families.
    Merrick hopes he can prove himself worthy of the position he has been raised
    for.  If it happens that he cannot or is someday unable to do so, Merrick hopes
    that his close friend and fellow pilot Decker Tressle will be willing to lead the
    unit.  He now bears many of the command responsibilities, though he has much
    support from his mother Suzy Evans, his behind-the-scenes father Ace, and his
    good friend Decker.
