Merrit comes from a single parent family. His mother, Janet, works as an english teacher at Holbart Middle School. She is unwilling to tell Merrit about his father other than to admit that her alcoholism is related. She tries hard to give Merrit the basics in life but it has been a struggle. She is proud of her son and that he was accepted to Quinlan. Unfortunately, Janet is also very stressed most of the time and is somewhat erratic in her contact with him---Its enough for Merrit to know that at the end of the school year he has a place to stay and someone who loves him. He doesn't ask for much more than that, and because of that, he's never disappointed in her.
Although Merrit has been the recipient of a scholarship he's trying to get a part-time job to help pay for the necessities of life: soda, guitar strings & cheetos. He hasn't been having much luck so far in finding one, but he's hopeful that once people look past his mohawk they'll realize how great he'd be for the job.
