Character Description

Melanie has dark brown skin, brown eyes, and black hair. Enthusiastic and loud, Melanie never hesitates to “turn up.” She is thrilled at the opportunity to kill Kuvexians for money. Melanie is the type of character who, when she's angry, claps between each word she says. She has a bit of a “hood” streak. Her loyalty to Yamatai is absolute.

“Naw, I'm here 'cause I need that check. And I want to kill some Kuvexians. Imagine getting paid to waste greedy people. IMAGINE,” she pantomimed a rainbow over her head. “This is going to be…recreational. Just point and click. BAM! We 'bout to put some Kuvvies IN THE GROUND. And that ain't no play-play, that's for real for real. I'm Melanie Spurling and I'm gonna be infantry. I'm not going for no BUUUULLSHIT combat support, I'm going for combat. Cause mama didn't raise no weak-ass bitch. Trust and BELIEVE, I GOT this!”1)

“If they don't want to do they need to stop messin' with Yamatai. This is an Empire and we take care of our own real nice, but we crush whoever is in the way. That's why Yamatai stays successful,” Melanie explained. “An ancient warrior, Julius Ceasar, once said: Wolves don't lose sleep over the opinions of the sheep. Taisho Kessaku Irim told me that. Trust and believe I'm gonna be the wolf instead of sitting in my apartment being a sheep for Kuvexians. Let them come and I will shoot them all day by the hundreds. Maybe they are people but not MY people.”
