"Give me a second, and I can show you an old Earth tradition. The snowball."
Melody is one character whose other version is different enough that she'll get her own page.
In Phoenix Dawn, Melody was the survivor of a freak teleportation accident and was adopted by Phillee as a teenager. She attended a program to get her Communications Specialist's certification and joined SSEP -- mostly because both Riki and Phillee were involved in it, as well as for a love of novelty. Like the rest of the crew of the Ankaa -- her first assignment -- she was marooned on Hinode, and is now reliant on Riki's newfound magic to get them back to the Ankaa and home.
Melody is a difficult person to get along with. She tends to brush people off, assume they are either idiots or want something from her, and in general act like a snide, sarcastic, bitch. Once you get beneath this act, however, you have a truly loyal and sympathetic friend -- albeit one that will not hesitate to whack you in the butt if she thinks you are being an idiot. Melody is very perceptive, and tends to notice things about people -- especially Humans and Starsailors. Melody is very self-reliant and has problems asking for help. She's got a hell of a contrary streak, mostly when it comes to authority figures. She also has a small inferiority complex, especially since she knows that her attitude keeps people at a distance.
Melody's hobbies mostly include music (she can play piano and guitar), though she also is multi-lingual -- as much as a job skill as a love for language.
Telepathy/empathy, minor telekinesis, minor psychometry. In Phoenix Dawn, Melody gains element-based magic. As a part Starsailor, she has perfect pitch, the ability to hold her breath for longer than average, and better hearing than most.
AGE: early 20s
