Melissa Devlin is one of the main characters in The Demon's Light. She is an 18-year-old half-angel (a race also known as "Nephilim") girl with light wavy brown hair that comes to her shoulders and dark hazel eyes. Her half-brothers are Atticus and Steven Anoethite, but they did not know they were siblings until later in the series.


Melissa is unsure of her background, as she has no memory of what happened before she woke up in the barn with three strangers: Savannah, Chris, and Atticus.

Later, Melissa is kidnapped by Kent and is brought to The Demon's Fortress. Here, she is experimented on by Morgan Roots and transformed into an alternate personality known as Vanessa. When she reverted back to her normal personality, the experiments side effects awakened her long dormant angelic powers.


Melissa Devlin is sweet, caring, protective, and brave. She is a very fun, laid-back, and somewhat immature individual, but she has a mature side when needed. She tries her best to be a good friend, but this has been to varying degrees of success.


Melissa has the ability to heal others, but cannot heal people who are near death. She also has the ability to teleport, but due to the immense fatigue caused by this technique, it is used sparingly.

Team Demon Light

Melissa is one of the original members of the protagonists, having woken up in the barn alongside Atticus, Chris, and Savannah.


Atticus Anoethite

Melissa and Atticus Anoethite made a good team before they knew they were actually siblings. While they have some arguments and bicker from time to time, they get along very well and have a strong bond.

Blood Queen

The Blood Queen becomes Melissa's best friend while she is Vanessa, and remains her friend after her reversion.

Chris McFarlane

Chris McFarlane and Melissa are good friends. They have a few fights once in a while but Messenger always looks out for Chris.

Steven Anoethite

Steven Anoethite is Melissa and Atticus' brother. They have an extremely strong bond, and her trust of Steven exceeds that of anyone else.

Marshall Rooke

Marshall Rooke was like a brother to Melissa. She loved him very much and always felt safe when he was there. Whenever something went wrong he was the first person she would tell and cry too.

Then, Marshall betrayed everyone for Kaz, which broke Melissa's heart. She knew it was best to have just forgotten him, but she was trying to help Marshall redeem himself so they still see each other as siblings. Marshall is currently attempting to regain everyone's trust.


Zekial quickly became a close friend of Melissa's not long after they met. Zekial tells Melissa about his feelings and soon after they start dating.


  • In season 2, she discovers that her mother is Jen Devlin.
  • Melissa's catchphrase is "Baka".
  • Somehow, Blood Queen becomes Melissa's friend later on.
  • Her father is the same as Atticus', making them half-siblings. This means she is technically an Anoethite and half-human.
  • Zekial later becomes a love interest of Melissa's soon after he enters the series.
  • Later in Season 1 Melissa is given a silver hilt black bladed dagger that she loves. When she was kidnapped by Kaz she had accidentally left her dagger behind which Atticus held onto until after his sister was returned to her normal form.
