Meronym is a woman of the Prescients who comes to live with the Valleymen for six months in order to learn about their society and customs. She is featured in Sloosha's Crossin' an' Ev'rythin' After - which consists solely of chapter 6.


Meronym is a fifty-year-old Prescient woman who comes to live with Zachry and his family on the "Big I" for a year in order to learn more about their society and way of living. She has strange skills (called "Smarts" by the Valleymen), some of which she shares with the locals. She and Zachry become reluctant friends, and the pair explores the island together. She shows Zachry the Sonmi orison and explains the truth about Sonmi to him. Meronym rescues Zachry when he is captured by the fierce Konas, and the pair escape the destruction on the "Big-I" together for Maui.
