Description: A tall woman, with dark hair and a long, grave face when at rest. Her eyes, which sometimes seem far away and other times mischievous, shine in a manner reminiscent of moonlight upon the ocean. Though no longer at the peak of physical fitness, Melosa still walks with a self-assured stride and bears herself in a manner that speaks of a life more often spent toughing it. Years which she has exchanged for fine clothes, fine perfumes, and fancy hair-dos. Melosa has earned it, after all.
Personality: Melosa is a friendly and sociable woman. It is her preference to keep good spirits and good company, which is not to say that Melosa is unwilling to put up with nonsense. She is direct and to the point, dislikes wasting time, and often cannot empathize with those who are not as goal-oriented as she. However, much like her ability to stick to a plan once laid, those who befriend her will find in her a loyal and steadfast friend.
Background: Melosa is an Ostrian native of humble origin. She might have followed in the footsteps of her parents, taking over the family business when she came of age, if it weren't for that military parade at age eleven. It was then that the course of her life would change irrevocably. Displaying a trait that would distinguish her well into adulthood, tenacity, Melosa joined the army when she turned eighteen. Through sheer grit, determination, no small amount of skill and a good bit of luck besides, Melosa worked her way through the ranks and into the celebrated III Hydra Legion.
Retired now, Melosa nevertheless recalls her day in the military with pride. While she may not look back on those years with fondness, for they were full of strife and blood, Melosa values just what a life in the Legion equipped her with. What's more, Melosa is a highly decorated veteran who was asked to serve House Mazetti directly not long after her departure from the army. Melosa accepted, only too happy to continue to broaden her horizons where others might have sunk into obscurity.
It has been three years in her new role within the House of the Hydra. She has seen the rise of the new Marquessa, and the talent of her Southportian husband. She has swelled with pride to see Ostria grow to new and greater prosperity, and she wept when its Marshal died in combat...perhaps wishing she might have been there alongside him, as did so many other soldiers, active duty or otherwise. All the way, Melosa has left her own mark upon the family. With a bit of careful planning, there is no reason to doubt that she might go even farther.
