Dove's Dalelands Campaign
Born in the hamlet of Green Orb, Daggerdale, Melli was unfortunate in that she saw the evil of the Zhents first hand when they took her family under the pretext of them being collaborators. She herself managed to get away by hiding in her families apiary, the bees never seeming to bother her, but proving quite dangerous to her pursuers. Since that time she has lived in the wild places of the Desertsmouth Mountains, where she felt Shiallia’s call.
Perhaps in thanks to her long service to Shiallia, she recently had a vision, the flag of Daggerdale flying free and Zhent forces retreating; a strange instrument lost, and a group of figures being celebrated as heroes. She took this as a sign from her goddess to return to her homeland, though she is not entirely certain why she has been called there. Part of her hopes she may yet find her missing family, perhaps released from their bondage, but it may just as likely be that Shiallia has another purpose in mind for her.
