Heermeedjet and Merouladen
Heermeedjet and Merouladen are two Brown Meerca brothers, who are wanted for a number of crimes around Neopia. The most high profile of their crimes was the theft of King Coltzan's crown, under orders from criminal mastermind Malkus Vile. Although not the most competent of criminals, somehow they always manage to escape before being caught. They are also featured in the game The Great Qasalan Caper, where they try to steal from the Qasalan treasury, and in Trouble at the National Neopian, as bank robbers.
Known to most Neopians as the Meerca Brothers, they have now cut all ties with Malkus Vile and have struck out on their own. Generally, Merouladen wears a blue cap while Heermeedjet wears a red one and is never without his trusty goggles.
The Hunt for the Crown
- Main Article: The Hunt for the Crown
Heermeedjet and Meerouladen were enlisted by Malkus Vile to steal King Coltzan's magical crown from his shrine in the Lost Desert. Although they managed to abscond with it, Heermeedjet was incriminated when he left a taunting note to Vyssa and foolishly signed his name. This gave players a starting point to find where the crown was hidden.

Better Than You
Heermeedjet and Merouladen have been a contestants on Better Than You three times:
|Date:||May 3, 2007||As Meercas, we apparently have a natural affinity for chasing Neggs down. Why didn't anyone tell us that they were worth so much, though?!? Just look how much we raked in for all the Neggs we grabbed during our last raid -- we doubt you could do better! Hahaha!|
|Game:||Meerca Chase II|
|Date:||June 26, 2008||We've spent most of our lives on the run, so sometimes it's nice to take a break and do some of the chasing down ourselves. Especially when there are Neggs involved. They sell for a boatload of Neopoints, you know.|
|Game:||Meerca Chase II|
|Prize:||Candy Cane Negg|
|Date:||December 3, 2009||Sutek designed the traps inside this pyramid to stop thieves from stealing his treasure. We'd like to thank him for the effort, because that means that the treasure is all ours for the taking! Mwahahaha!|
|Prize:||Meerca Thieving Beanie|
