Merlino(VLF182) was born on January 22, 2011 in the Lazuli. Her mother was Young the dominant female at the time, and her father was Rufus the dominant male. Merlino was born in a large litter of six. Her five litter-mates included two sisters named Sutica(VLF180) and Morgana(VLF183), and three brothers VLM178, Cagliostro(VLM179) and Gobolino(VLM181). When the pups started foraging with the adults at four weeks old, VLM178 died. The Lazuli were a large mob and managed to bring the rest of the pups through. In September 2012 Merlino's brother Cagliostro momentarily left the mob to join the Cave Men but rejoined that same month. In October 2012 Merlino, Hen and Griene Tsiis gave birth to a mixed litter of seven pups. The pups were named Lust, Wrath, Greed, Envy, Pride, Gluttony and Sloth. In April 2013 the whole litter disappeared along with a subodinate female named O'Toolie. In July 2013 Merlino was evicted but managed to return to the group. Later that year she was evicted again but did not manage to rejoin the Lazuli. Merlino was Last Seen in October 2013.
