Advanced Character Profile Character Name:
Melantha (=dark flower) Gender:
FemaleAge and Date of Birth:
23 // January 4th Appearance:
Melantha is with a height of 6’1” one of the tallest Senshi, if not the tallest Senshi, and also taller than some men. Nevertheless she is still feminine; in general she is slender with long legs and an hourglass figure. Furthermore Melantha’s skin is very
fair, it’s close to white.
She has a heart-shaped face which is framed by two chin-length strands of hair; one at each side. Her dark brown, slightly wavy hair is tied up to a messy bun on the top of her head. Besides that she has black thin eyebrows and red eyes.
Her clothes are casual yet elegant and mostly in darker shades; mostly black, grey, wine red or burgundy. Preferentially she wears pants and blouses but she also wears skirts and sometimes dresses. Her shoes are mostly heeled and she often carries a purse with her. When she wears her civilian clothes Melantha always hides her transformation brooch – either in her purse or when she doesn’t carry the purse with her, also in pants pockets or in other pockets of her clothes. The main point is that the brooch is hidden, so that no one could ever get the idea to assume that she’s a Senshi.Personality:
Melantha is a sharp-witted, organized and prudent Senshi. Before she acts, she always thinks about her actions, so that they don’t have any gaps or flawed parts that could make her vulnerable to her enemy. To reach her goals she is also contented to make sacrifices which makes her to a very goal-oriented person.
Furthermore she has a good intuition. She sees visions in her dreams and is also able to sense attacks coming from her enemy which makes it very hard to hurt her. In general she is more that kind of person who hurts instead of the person who gets hurt. That’s because of her high accuracy and her smart yet cunning thinking. She might not be the strongest Senshi when it comes to physical attacks but due to her cleverness, she is a danger to everyone and hard to stop.
Besides that Melantha is an unpredictable character: she is cold and sadistic and she doesn’t hesitate to stab someone in the back when she can take an advantage of it or when the person gets useless.
What makes her so dangerous is that she is out of control. She acts merciless and would stop at nothing to reach her goals – the goal-oriented part of her personality is too dominant which makes her to act this way. Many people are scared of her, even like-minded people, that’s why she is more the kind of a loner.
Until Sailor Stella and Sailor Moon tried to stop her no one ever had the courage to defy her. And it’s not only because she is powerful, it’s also because it’s well established that Melantha is a vengeful person and would take revenge on everyone who opposes her in the merciless, sadistic way she uses to.However, she wasn't always like this. Before the corrupted star seed seized hold of her, Melantha was more of a shy and reserved girl that was mostly alone and read a lot due to her curiosity. She always preferred dark things though.Any Unique Abilities/Skills:
Melantha is a hyper-accurate thrower. Mostly she throws knifes but she can also throw several other objects and will mostly hit the target. History: Melantha was born on a planet far off our solar system and was originally called Celestine. At the beginning she seemed like an ordinary girl to everyone - but she wasn't. Melantha was predestined to be a Sailor Senshi, a soldier fighting for love and justice. However, just before she was born, Chaos returned and corrupted the star seeds in the Galaxy Cauldron. No one was able to stop Chaos since Guardian Cosmos disappeared and thus, she and a few other girls got corrupted star seeds.
All the while she was more introverted and preferred dark and spooky things. The kids in the kindergarten always bullied her and called her “dark witch”; even her parents were scared of her - they virtually despised her. Unloved by everyone she grew up to a depressed, desperate girl who often cried. The corrupted star seed she carried in her body since she was born made use of her sorrow and turned her grief into hatred and anger. Longing for revenge she looked for her former mates back then in the kindergarten to pay them back and to hurt them as much as they hurt her.
The more people she injured the more of the corrupted star seed seized hold of her former personality and so she turned into the cold, sadistic young lady who gave herself the name Melantha. At the end she even took revenge on her parents, who avoided her attendance all over the years, by murdering them.
This was the moment when she reached the climax of anger and hatred; a bright light appeared in front of her. When the light faded she saw a brooch telling her to take it and transform into Sailor Apollyon, the Soldier of Destruction and Suffering. Without any hesitation she reached her hand for the brooch and transformed. From then on Melantha wasn’t the strange 15 years old girl anymore; she was Sailor Apollyon, the most destructive Soldier the world should ever see.
As soon as she was aware of her abilities as Sailor Apollyon, she started to terrorize the whole city, later the country and eventually her whole planet. After reaching the goal that the whole planet was destroyed and everyone was afraid of her, she left her home and searched for other planets and galaxies to destroy them.
After destroying 32 different solar systems in the universe, she received a message in her dreams: A powerful force was on the way to stop her and her actions. Afraid someone could end her period of terror she hit the road to Earth, the planet the powerful energy was coming from, to stop whoever tried to stop her.
When she arrived on Earth Apollyon had to disguise herself – something she never needed to do – so that her rivals won’t consider her an enemy. On her way to stop them she meets other Senshi who pursue the same goal and out of hand they decide to unite and fight them together.Other Noteworthy Facts:

None. RP Sample:
Apollyon cruised through the space and looked for the planet she saw in her vision when she finally arrived. That’s it! That’s the myth-enshrouded earth!
She slowed down and directed herself to the isle they all called “Japan”. Before she came to the solar system, she did lots of researches concerning the planet, the country, the city – to get familiar with the area she had to live from now on.
Her biggest nightmare came true. Someone was really going to stop her from subduing more planets. During the last night Apollyon woke up – bathed in sweat. She just saw two Senshi in her dreams who were going to stop her from her actions. How were they called?
While she got ready to land on the surface she hardly tried to remember their names. Sailor…Moon?! And how was the other one called?
She screwed up her face during her intense thinking. Sailor…Stella? Yeah, Sailor Stella, that was her name!
Apollyon remembered what she saw in her dreams. Sailor Moon had a whole team by her side – though they didn’t seem to be a danger for her – and was said to be the most powerful soldier out of all. And Sailor Stella?
She could barely remember seeing her at the Galaxy Cauldron next to Guardian Cosmos. Sailor Moon’s teammates aren’t a big danger. But Moon and Stella are dangerous. I have to watch out.
Apollyon finally landed in Japan – not very far from Tokyo; maybe three miles away. Quickly she de-transformed and hid her brooch in her purse.
“Alright, Sailor Soldiers…get ready for your death!” A sardonic laughter came from her mouth and the tall brunette eventually started walking towards Tokyo. “Don’t expect any mercy!”
On her way to the city she came across many people who looked at her all in the same way. Distastefully, contemptuous and somewhat scared. It won’t take long until you all are begging me for saving your life
, she thought and smiled. And then you’ll be sorry for looking so disgusted at me.
When she finally took her first steps into the city she already shook her head. “A bunch of idiots,” she muttered to herself. “Whatever. Look for Sailor Moon,” she reminded herself. “When you find Moon, you’ll also find the others.”
Melantha – the civilian identity of Sailor Apollyon – walked through the city until she finally arrived in the center of Tokyo. Well, let’s look for a pretty apartment at first.
After all she needed a place to sleep for the next days. At a corner she suddenly ran into someone who came from the left. “Hey! Mind what you’re doing, you idiot,” she shouted.
When she looked up, her heart suddenly stopped. When she looked into the blonde girl’s eyes she received an uncommon energy – the energy of…a Sailor Senshi. Her eyes widened and she had to pinch herself, so that she wouldn’t say something. She is the most powerful soldier?!
Melantha tried to narrow her eyes to their normal size – otherwise she’d look suspicious. She looks like anything but a Senshi!
Melantha observed the girl who apologized over and over again. This klutz was maybe a clown or a confused teenager…but a Sailor Senshi? Can it be true? Am I mistaken? Maybe she isn’t a soldier at all?! But what was that energy I received when it wasn’t the energy of a Sailor Senshi?
Still a bit confused if she was Sailor Moon or not she eventually barged into the girl and made her farewells with a cold, “Look out next time, pinhead!”
After she walked a few meters she muttered to herself, “In any case – if she is the legendary Sailor Moon or not – she really takes after her.”
