Melissa Devlin is the most passionate of the protagonists, while not always thinking logically, she would rush into unknown dangers to rescue a friend. Sometimes she reverts into a scared girl but when the moment calls for it she puts her fears and personal feelings aside to do what needs to be done. She refuses to leave a friend in harm's way no matter the cost, which often leads to bad consequences.

Earlier in the first season, she was the most quiet protagonist that often needed comfort, as time went by and she regained more memories, she turned into a confident but sometimes playful young woman the others tend to look up to from time to time. Her bond with her brother Steven not only showed her warm, caring side, but also that she had a rebellious personality.


In 309 TP, Melissa and her fraternal twin brother Steven were born to Stanley Devlin and the angel Jenna. To hide the affair, Stanley married a human friend of his and convinced her to adopt both of his children and raise them as her own.

Due to the death of their parents, the two siblings were sent to live with their uncle, Richard Smith, at the age of seven. Raised mostly in Richard's lab, Melissa developed a taste for rebellion as she grew older. Discovering an old militia known as Silivia Militia, Melissa decided to join the group, only to be disallowed by Richard. At the age of 17 and after an argument with her increasingly restricted uncle, Melissa left her home and joined the group anyways.
