Melissa has a single diamond stud on the left side of her nose.
Her voice is reserved, but full of confidence and command.
Abilities & PowersEdit
As a Grand General within the Haven Army, Melissa holds great power and authority. She is capable of leading the land's army herself, a duty all of her rank can, and must uphold if needed.
Melissa is one of the army's best fighters. The reason she has the epithet "The White Knight", is because the reason her armor remains pristine, is that she remains virtually untouched in most battles. She holds tremendous skill with her longsword, and is famously known for her perfection in the ways of parrying, so much, that she makes it look like an art form. A drill which she holds every day at dawn, is ordering one hundred soldiers to surround her, and to try and attack her. She is yet to have a blow landed on her.
Melissa is also a reknowned tactician, and is counted among the War Council.
Melissa is the Queen of Haven, and holds authority second only to her husband, Michael. However, she rarely, if ever, uses this authority, as she much prefers her post in the army. She will however, take part in every meeting, and always voices her thoughts and opinions on the matter at hand.
Melissa is loved and adored by her people all across the land for her kind heart and benevolence. She is sincere, honest, yet also very fierce, and stands her ground when challenged.
Melissa enlisted in the military at a very early age, and as such, is very punctual, and organized.
She has a very flexible stance on justice. During the corrupt reign of the nobles, Melissa did not protect nor show any sympathy towards them as they were being killed by The Pack. In certain cases, Melissa believes the end justifies the means, as shown when she actually somewhat agreed with Aranos views on the direction Haven was going, and was already working behind the scenes in an attempt to secure a better future for Haven.
Melissa is Michael's wife, and knew him since he was 9 years old. He left the life of royalty behind him and came to work on her parents farm. Being his elder, she constantly bossed him around and gave him a hard time, despite, or because the fact that he was a prince. Over the years she would secretly develop an infatuation with him, and the two fell in love during their teenage years. The rest, as they say, is history. She has however, begun to show signs of wishing Michael would take a more hands on approach to justice.
Melissa showed great contempt for Michael's siblings, particularly Gabriel. She was fully against the direction the country was going, so much that she left her post as Marshall during their reign. She seemed to be on good terms with princess Liandrah, however, and despite leaving her post, remained as her personal bodyguard. Melissa hates Lucifer with all her being.
Although it's her duty to protect the Nobles of Haven, Melissa did nothing during the time when they were being targetted by The Pack. She believes those who use deception and mockery to attain power are fools and deserve nothing less than death.
As stated above, Melissa is loved and adored by her people all across the land for her kind heart and benevolence.
The relationship between Melissa and James is one of mostly grudged respect. She obeyed his commands to the letter her entire military career, even if some of them were distasteful. However, she had a very clear line drawn, and when it was crossed, she abandoned her post entirely. When she returned, she continued serving Price faithfully, and is very grateful that the Grand Commander has slowly begun turning around towards benevolence. However, as she is now Queen of Haven, Price is as honorbound to serve her as he is to Michael. Melissa however still holds a negative outlook on James, as the man is yet to show any real respect to her husband, the King.
Melissa despises Lyle and can't stand the man. The reason for this has been finally revealed, with Lyle several years ago drunkenly feeling up on her at a party.
Melissa is yet to be shown directly interacting with any members of The Pack, but she trusts her husbands judgement on them.
