lenity

(noun) Mercifulness as a consequence of being lenient or tolerant.

Synonyms: lenience, mildness

Usage: I promise to show all the lenity in my power; but if the charges brought against this Bonapartist hero prove correct, why, then, you really must give me leave to order his head to be cut off.
