Canon History

Contains Spoilers
Melissa used to be good friends with Rachel and Cassie. However, during the First War, they had a falling out. Rachel and Cassie were too busy with Animorph life, and Melissa was becoming more withdrawn due to her parents being Controllers, though she did not know it at the time. It is unspecified what happened to her after the war.

Neomorphs History

After the war, Melissa attempted to return to a normal life and was largely successful. She attended a college several towns away from her hometown; far enough away that the invasion there was not an immediate danger to her. However, when her father was freed from the control of Mersa 528, Melissa found herself called into the war once again. This time, she opted to fight and, in Book 69: The Division, she was accepted as an Animorph.

Some of the Animorphs, chiefly Tobias and Jake suspect that Melissa may have suicidal tendencies and is using the war as an opportunity to kill herself.

Personal Life

Melissa was beginning to reconnect with her old friends, Rachel and Cassie, but they moved away in Book 70: The Memories. She seems to be involved in a relationship with Jake.


There has been very little reaction to Melissa, although it was generally approval.
