Melissa was born on the Greek island of Symi. She befriended Venalicius when they were both young. After he sailed away, she married his younger brother, Alexandros, and had a son with him, named Lupus. When Venalicius returned from sea to find Melissa married to his brother, he was filled with an envious rage. He murdered Alexandros in front of Melissa's eyes and chopped her son's tongue out so that the boy could not tell anyone of his crime. He then left Melissa on the island, taking Lupus with him and threatening that he would kill the boy if she told.
Melissa is very gentle and a good listener.
Melissa is very beautiful and has been since a young age.
