Melissa was Embraced as a child and retained her childlike demeanor even through the hardships of undeath. Her memories of her living days are somewhat distorted, but she remembers that a stranger came to visit their house and that a fire erupted. For a long time, her only companions were the cats and kittens on the streets, who sheltered her during the day.
It was not until prince Marcus Vitel found her personally, that she came to realize what she was. In a rare act of compassion, Vitel granted her the right to exist and gave her to Art Morgan, the Gangrel Elder of D.C. Melissa lives together with the rest of Morgan's followers and has developed a special fondness of Tabitha Prester.
Melissa is a rather dirty-looking little girl with blond curls and blue eyes. She wears nice clothes, provided for her by Art and his “Archons”. She almost always has a kitty in her arms. Melissa has short whiskers which stick out from her cheeks and a small cat tail.
