Merovech is a member of the Council of Pontiffs in Ebla. Unlike the others Pontiffs, he is not a member of the powerful Lugal Faction. Instead he secured his position by personal charisma and local support, since he was actually born in Ebla. He is ambitious and often a odds with the other pontiffs because he doesn’t share their political beliefs. They also resent his popularity with the local population. Nevertheless, being so outnumbered by the others, who generally act as a unit, Merovech must be very careful about pursuing his agenda.
