As a young boy he developed his father's strengths and weaknesses, blended with some other faerie influence - however in this Ungifted man the faerie influence has shown itself as a talent for trickery and commerce rather than magic and communication. He is fine travelling along roads and rivers (much better than his father, who has no sense of direction), but whenever he crossed boundaries any liminal fae seem to show up and challenge him or put little obstacles in his way - it's as if they expect something special from him.

The youthful Mercurio has developed into a cheeky and cheerful lad, with a bright smile and eyes whose color is hard to define. His garralous nature and small stature make him seem eternally young, in a fey sort of way, ever curious and always eager to go on any adventure he can find. He's a consummate trickster, liar, and flirt, with nothing but the best intentions… though he is always happier around beautiful girls than anything else.

Ibis, his father's familiar, has invested him with the ability to fly:
