Dismissing a mercenary will send them back to the tavern you originally found them in, unless they are married, request to become stewards, or are drafted into the Blades, in which case they will be sent to a different location. Therefore, make sure you’re aware of this information before dismissing them, as you might have to travel a bit further if any of this applies to them
