Personality

⇀ Description

Melanie is determined and headstrong. Her stubborn nature forces her to see tasks to completion no matter the difficulty. She tends to value practicality over ambition, and she sees little use for idle daydreaming. Her style of bravery is a lot less steady courage and a lot more sheer recklessness. She's loyal to her friends, but that loyalty rarely extends to those outside her social circle. She tends to be suspicious of strangers and their intentions. Although she does her best to seem charismatic, casual social interaction doesn't always come easily to her- especially if she's caught off-guard. She flirts shamelessly with those she finds attractive, but any return sentiments leave her blushing and stuttering.

Melanie does her best to act confident, no matter the task. Although her attitude often seems cocky or even arrogant, in reality she's just trying to hide her own insecurities. She often has doubts about her abilities or even her mission, but she refuses to vocalize them. Melanie, despite her attempts to appear otherwise, is also a huge nerd; she loves sci-fi and action movies, and can spend entire days re-reading her favorite books. She's usually extremely sleep-deprived, either due to working on case research or staying up late watching Netflix.

Appearance

⇀ Description

Melanie has dusky blonde hair that falls just past her chest. Her arms are warm hazel and a light smattering of freckles covers her cheeks and nose. She's fairly tan after all the time she spends outside. Her body is sturdy, with obvious muscles and little curves. She stands at exactly 5'4". Although her posture is usually relaxed, she can jump into action in a heartbeat. There are several scars on her arms, legs, and ribs.

Melanie usually wears casual, comfortable clothes. Her preferred outfit is a loose plaid shirt, a simple undershirt, and black or light-washed jeans. Her shoes are usually shock-absorbent sneakers or sturdy boots, depending on the case. She also has a collection of graphic shirts. When it's cold, Melanie wears a black bomber jacket and knit fingerless gloves on top of her usual outfit. She has a fondness for thigh holsters despite their impracticality and often wears one on the job, as long as no civilians are around to see it.

⇀ Important Design Notes

  • She has freckles on her cheeks and nose.
  • Her primary weapons are a hunting machete, a .45 1911 handgun, and a Bowie combat knife.
  • For a brief time period, she also wielded Excalibur.
  • She can be drawn in a variety of outfits, but she prefers practical, comfortable clothes and plaid.

Relationships

Sara [ significant other ]

Like most of the long-lasting relationships in Melanie's life, this one started off on a bad note. Melanie had always had more of a "shoot first and ask questions later" mentality- so when a mysterious supernatural creature interrupted her case, her first instinct was to shoot her in the chest. Twice. Luckily enough, angels tend to be fast healers and Sara recovered with ease. Although their coinciding missions often caused them to conflict (and usually more violently than not), Melanie eventually grew to respect and even care for the angel. They became close friends fairly quickly after that- there's nothing quite like failing to prevent an apocalypse to help bring people together. Somewhere along the way, between deadly firefights and interdimensional conflicts and celestial family disputes, Melanie fell in love. Never ones to do things half-way, their first date was a year-long roadtrip across the continental states.

⇀ Alex [ best friend ]

Alex and Melanie have been best friends for almost a decade. As a young hunter on one of her first hunts, Melanie was startled by an unexpected presence. She reacted instinctively, and only Alex's quick reflexes saved him from being impaled by her throwing dagger. For two nineteen year olds, the entire situation seemed hilarious. They quickly became close friends. When they were both in their early twenties, they bought a small apartment on the East Coast and moved in together. They made excellent partners- Melanie's recklessness was balanced out by Alex's more cautious nature, and his interest in mythology came in handy many times.

⇀ Jaz [ friend ]

Jaz and Mels met when the latter mysteriously appeared in her bedroom in the middle of the night, spouting tales of magic and danger. Wary and uncertain, Jaz initially dismissed her as a stoner- but a vampire attack soon changed her mind. When she was offered a chance to escape her shitty home life and actually make a difference, she couldn't not accept. She learned to fight and kill and use her magic to its full extent. She quickly grew to like Mels- she was older than her by a few years, but she treated Jaz like an adult. Trusted her, even. Although eventually the effects of fighting a war took their toll on Jaz, she remained friends with Mels throughout.
