Merino is a young woman of average size and has light coloured hair. As a Pan, her most notable features are her ram horns on her head, her rectangular pupils, and her sheep ears and tail. Her body is also for a large part covered in fluffy wool, though it can be mistaken for clothing and if sheared is not noticable.
Her attire seems to consists only of an overall with nothing underneath, causing her breasts and nipples to be exposed at certain angles, and a pair of long, woolen, fingerless gloves.
Merino is a friendly and polite individual and is very passionate about her work. When complemented by other people, she gets easily flustered. Likewise, she is a bit shy, which is mostly noticable when she is forced into intimate situations.
The process of shearing her wool is almost orgasmic to her, so she is very embarrased when it has to be done.
Skills & Traits Edit
- Farming: Merino has some knowledge about farming. Most notably on how to milk sheep.
- Pan Physiology
- Lactation: Just like Minotaurs, Merino constantly lactates. But since the amount is far less, Merino is able to hide it by using Cathyl's breast pumps to drain the milk.
- Wool: Due to a Pan's sheep-like nature, Merino's body is almost completely covered by thick wool. While it needs to be sheared often, as it gets uncomfortable for her if it's too long, it grows back within a week. The wool's softness and quality is superior than that of an ordinary sheep. Though Rachnera claims it is still an inferior clothing material than Spider Silk.
When Cathyl brings Centorea, Papi and Kimihito to the farm Merino is working at, the Pan apologizes for the trouble Cathyl caused. Merino then introduces herself, Cathyl and Ton & Cott to the three. When they agree to Cathyl's proposal to help in the farm work, Merino proceeds to teach Kimihito how to milk sheep.
During the milking, Kimihito can't help but stare at Merino's partially exposed breasts. After Merino notices, she asks for Kimihito to shear her, as her fleece had grown too much and she didn't want to ask Cathyl to do it. When Kimihito finishes shearing her back, she asks him to do her front and even asks Kimihito to shear her nether regions. which puts great stress on him, as Merino is clearly aroused by the experience. However, Cerea interrupts them and quickly and swiftly shears Merino's remaining wool with twin sickles.
When Papi arrives carrying a large box of Breast Pumps, Merino explains to Cerea that Cathyl and the farm's manager are in a lover's quarrel, due to Cathyl believing he is cheating on her.
Sometime later, after the manager returns to the farm, Merino thanks Cerea and Kimihito for helping them, though Cerea asks the Pan how she is going to shear herself in the future. In response they are approached by three young men who want to learn about farming. The three men immediately befriend the Pan and Barometz; and Merino is very flustered after one of them complements her.
Sometime later, Merino visits the Sno Ball Hot Spring Resort, together with Cathyl, Ton, Cott, Liz, Kinu, and Luz Ninetei. Upon prodding from the twins about Merino's relationship with the new farmhand, Merino shyly reveals that he now shears her.
When Miia ends up at the farm looking for a part-time job, Merino and Cathyl agree to hire her. Merino then reveals to Miia that she and Cathyl have been getting several requests from young mothers to donate their breast milk, so the Pan begins milking herself with one of the Breast Pumps. When Cathyl brings up the fact that Merino had been lactating this entire time, the Pan shyly dodges the issue. When Miia asks what her job is, Merino says that Miia's supposed to milk herself as well, unaware that the Lamia does not produce milk yet. This quickly causes Miia to leave for another job.
During the Extra Species Cultural Exchange Exhibition, Merino and Cathyl attended the event as representatives for the Liminals already working in human society. There, they hosted a booth called "Ms. Cow and Ms. Sheep's Milking Experience", which involved them teaching eager young men how to milk cows and sheep.
A Pan is a demihuman race possessing characteristics of a sheep, including a pair of curled horns on the head, a small tail, ungulate ears, and hoofed feet, and they are a tad shorter than the average human.
Presumed to be a subspecies of Satyr or Minotaur, wool grows out of every surface of their body, excluding the hooves, hands, fingers, and face. If left unchecked, this wool will grow at enough of a pace to become unbearable to the individual in question without occasional shearing. Pan are, true to their nature, shy and sheepish in general, and see the shearing process as one of extreme embarrassment. As expected of the symbols of virginity (the sheep), they are all protective of their chastity.
- Like many characters, her name is a pun on her species. "Merino" is a type of sheep known for its prized wool.
- Ton and Cott eventually turned Merino's discarded wool into a sweater for Kimihito, much to Merino's embarrassment. According to Kimihito, it's really warm and soft.
