Little Merida then follows the wisps, but was called by her mother. She told her mother about the wisps and her mother carried her to the tent. But, when her mother was walking while carrying her, Merida saw a bear; Mor'du. While her father attacked Mor'du, she was taken away by her mother on a horse.

Years later, Merida appears as a teenager. She describes that being a princess was tiring because she is a role model, she has expectations and duties while. She is also thought by her mother about speeches, knowledge, art and attitudes of a princess almost everyday, which she dislikes.

However, there is a day where she can be free, no lessons and such. On one day like that, she rides her horse while practicing shooting with her bow and arrow. On that day also, she climbs a high rock near a waterfall and drinks its water.

She wears an off-shoulder teal dress with a brown belt, on which has attached a cloth and a badge representing her clan. The elbow of the dress is added extra yellow fabrics. Her shoes are brown.


Merida is tomboyish, and her favorite hobby is archery. Nearly an expert at this, she wishes that she could always do this. But she has too many responsibilities as a princess. Merida once did not want her mother to always make her be perfect, so she gets a potion from a witch, which eventually turned her mother into a bear. Merida realizes that she was selfish, and now does not dread too much of her responsibilities. When she was little, she was very playful and hides from her mother sometimes.
