Simon Merkin is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising 3.

He is a superstitious English person who believes only in what his tarot cards tell him. He swears that his cards foretold the outbreak before it happened, which caused him to take shelter on the gun store rooftop. 

In the CardsEdit

Simon is found standing on the roof of the Headshots Gun Store during Chapter 2. When approached by Nick, he pleads him to find his lost tarot cards. There are 5 cards in total which have been scattered to various locations in Ingleton.

After collecting Simon's cards and returning them to him, he will join Nick's posse. He will also be recruitable from the survivor board in the future.
