Melody of New Zeminar (Royal: Izë-Zeminarte Merëni) was a commander in Efsisi's army. She was later chosen to be one of King Fyuri's ceremonial guards during the Festival of Light.

History

Early Life

Melody was born in the largest city in New Zeminar, Ezminain, to a lower-class family. Ezminain was known to be where controlled experiments on the harnessing of natural magic were conducted, and Melody's parents were both low-level clerical workers in one of the facilities. For years, Ezminain had been targeted by attacks by the gnoll terrorist cell known as the Ancient Order of Gnollic Sorcery, due to Yakov's treatment of the gnoll mages who had been ordered to help unlock the secrets of natural magic. Despite this, Melody's parents, unwilling to leave their extremely young child to fend for herself at home, would bring her and watch her as they worked. But when Melody was three years old, the Ancient Order attacked the facility in which her parents worked. They managed to kill 12 workers before being apprehended by Efsisi's army, including Melody's mother and father. Though Melody witnessed the killing, she was spared for unknown reasons.

Efsisi Care

Following the massacre, Melody was placed into Efsisi's care system, which was unique in that it emphasized military training above all else. She was sent to an orphanage in New Yuhanto. Though the supervisors demanded strict discipline in their presence, bullying and fighting were rampant and even tolerated.
