Mercer West was a character in Dead Frontier.


Not much is known about Mercer's life before the apocalypse, except for the fact that he is extremely close to his grandmother Mary West and was dating Melody Adams.


In the very early days of the apocalypse, Mercer fled with Billie StarrMelody,  his grandmother out of the city, since Billie and his grandma were neighbors. They fled to a large Super 8 motel in a Chicago suburb. Mercer is efficient with his bow and arrows and prefers to them over using a gun, since it is quieter and allows him to sneak around any infected he may come across. Mercer still spends a lot of time with his grandmother even after the outbreak to make sure she is okay.

When the group is blindsided on the highway by a horde, Mercer tries to flee but gets his foot stuck in a flimsy windshield. He is saved by Adam, who risks his life to pull Mercer out.

Mercer flees with the rest of the survivors from the motel to the WalMart. When the military infiltrate the store, Mercer is scarred by the sight of his dead grandmother, who had her throat slit by General David Reese. Along with everyone else he is taken to an underground lab, and he is lucky enough to not have been experimented on. However, when they escape and find out Melody was killed, Mercer falls into a deep depression.

Mercer and the group decided to hide out in an abandoned house after escaping, where he reveals his urges to commit suicide to Billie. Billie takes his gun in hopes that would halt his attempts at killing himself, but the next morning, Mercer's body is found hanging from the shower rod with a belt around his neck.
