Melissa Forrester is a descendant with the ability to control the biological functions any living creature (except possibly plants). Melissa became depressed and withdrawn after manifesting her abilities and was sent to the academy where she was Alexis Keyes' roommate.

Project Tome, however, took her as a candidate for their program and placed her into a stasis cell for over ten years, when she was discovered by the now adult Alexis.

The lost time merely increased Melissa's depression, and unlike the other Freeland House teens, she was reluctant to engage in prelate activities. Her sense of isolation allowed her to make a strong connection with Kareem Utt while he was stuck in the astral. 

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Melissa has the ability to control people's biological functions. Originally, this manifested itself in that she could heal herself and others, and she uncounsiously elevated the moods of people around her. Later she was able to control this, and could elavate whatever mood a person was feeling. At one point, she used her abilities on herself, elevating her moods to such an extreme that her mind resembled that of an addict. It became such that Kareem used his powers to temporarily turn off her ability to be happy in order to get her to think rationally. In doing so, however, he was able to glean insight into how Melissa's powers worked, realizeing that her powers were more than just healing and being a living upper.

Healing is the most common way Melissa uses her powers. What she actually does is increase the body's metabolism to speed up the healing process. Doing this makes both Melissa and the person she's healing extremely hungry, which leads to the danger of starving to death.


Melissa is cynical and sarcastic. Much of this stems from her fear that none of her relationships were real because she was forcing people to be happy around her.
