Thomas is useful as he stores your items including ores (99 max) and ammunitions (999 max). Storing the ores is particularly useful since you don't need to bring them to the blacksmith when upgrading.

List of Merchants

Merchants sell a variety of items and will relocate when the major demon in the stage you found them in is defeated. Some of the items they sell are limited in quantity and will only reset after a new game cycle.

Attacking merchants makes them hostile to you and will remain that way for the rest of the game cycle. Killing them shifts the Character Tendency to Black. Merchants respawn and return to their normal behavior at the beginning of a new game cycle.
