Merion was a maester of the Citadel.


He was made Grand Maester at the age of sixty-six and sent to serve the court of King Aegon V Targaryen in King's Landing to succeed Grand Maester Ellendor. He died on his way to King's Landing and was succeeded by Grand Maester Pycelle.[2]

His work The Red Dragon and the Black was left unfinished.[3]

He once referred to the custom of Lys, Myr, and Tyrosh to grant licenses on ships to prey upon those of their foes as "piracy with a wax seal".[4]
