In human form, Mercuphobia appears as a young man with shoulder-length hair, two long horns, and a facial tattoo over his right eye. He dons a dark coat over a long shirt, accompanied by loose pants tucked into pirate boots. His accessories include a necklace with three circular ornaments and black gloves that only partially cover his palm.
In the past Mercuphobia used to kill humans and think nothing of them like ants, but over time since meeting Caramille he had a change of heart into which he began to save struggling humans that cross paths with in his territory. This in turn made him kind to those who are able to reason with him.
Mercuphobia existed as far back as the Dragon King Festival, having killed numerous humans, some of which included Elefseria’s family. During this time, he rescued Caramille, a human who had been shipwrecked in his sea. From there, Mercuphobia became a peaceful dragon who supported coexistence with humanity, ultimately coming to lead the people of Elmina Town, who worshipped him as a god.
