When the Wyrm of Worlds imprisoned Demeter's soul in the Netherworld, She experienced a nightmare that would change Her forever. A ritual was performed to free Her from this prison, and She was reborn as Melantha. She is the embodiment of dark and light within Nature, Her personality changing with the Seasons to reflect the experiences She had in the netherworld. Her first act upon returning from the netherworld was to battle the Wyrm and rid the world of its evil influence.
During Phaestian, 611 the Gods attempted to destroy Bal'met. Lady Melantha was pierced by Sycaerunax, the Father of the Dragons, and She fell to the Aerinewild. Many forestals rushed to Her side, yet there was nothing that could be done. She returned to the forest She so loved.
The chosen symbols of Melantha are a wreath of the Seasons, a cauldron, and the Wheel of the Seasons.
