Generic vs. Unique characters Edit
This needs to be verified. I think these entries sorted now as a generic characters represent different stalker setups (perhaps based on rank (rookie, experienced, veteran,...)) and have nothing to do with their names. Octurion 00:35, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
Merc's origin and objectives Edit
I think this article needs to be rewritten, since the game has little reference about the mercenary faction's goals and modus operandi. They are clearly not divided into different independent groups, since most of the time they can be seen roaming arround scientists, abandoned factories and/or laboratories (The Dark Valley in Clear Sky, the Wild Territory in Shadow of Chernobyl, and lab X-8, in Call of Prypiat, for example.) which means that they are probably working to some common goal. I believe that it is more likely that their leaders just send different groups to complete specific orders. In addition, in SoC it is mentioned that the mercs are only hostile to those who get in their way. And for God's sake, the squads in Call of Prypiat are not the only mercenary squads in the whole Zone. Those are just the ones that are seen working in Zaton, Jupiter, and Prypiat. And finally, Scar is a Mercenary, but he is a Mercenary of his own. He has nothing to do with the faction, otherwise the mercs in Clear Sky would be marked as Allied to te player. So, to sum up, the mercs are a complete mistery. In fact, the Mercenary faction might as well be a cover, and the whole group could actually be a foreign task force sent to investigate all about the secret experiments undertaken in the Chernobyl Zone since 1989. Sorry about the spelling mistakes.

Mercenary from BritainEdit
so, in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, the Mercenary in the Waste Processing Station who told you to turn back, he sounded like British in the line "Stalker, off with you, while you still got legs!" Fotis.salonikios1 (talk) 17:03, May 20, 2016 (UTC)
