The adoptive 'granddaughter' of the famed Plushling Mercenary Miguel, Melusine is a survivor of a shipwreck that claimed her parents at a young age. Found on the coast of Al Maajik by Miguel, the Plushling took the child under his wing, teaching her how to fight and look after herself.
When she came of age, Miguel challenged her to slay the Desert Tyrant. Unable to fell the beast, Melusine ultimately gave up and took residence on Cacto Cove to live a carefree life with her pet Dinky Dragon Fran. Despite her failure, there seems to be no hard feelings between her and Miguel, and she is still quite proficient in wielding a sword.
At some point in time, Melusine inherited the title of Guardian of Cacto Cove from Miguel.
In both the daytime and evening, Melusine can be found in her solitary cabin on Cacto Cove.
