The excellent Separate Ways bonus campaign in Resident Evil 4 allows you to experience the game from Ada's point of view.
The Merchant of course makes an appearance in this mode, and helps Ada out on her mission, much to the delight of fans of the two.
Now it might be that Ada got to the scene too quickly, but when she first comes across the Merchant he still hasn't opened.
While he makes a point about this, he still willingly sells his wares to Ada. Come to think of it the trademark blue lamps aren't to be seen anywhere.
Only a true professional would be so dedicated to his customers, I think there's something to learn there for me too.
