Melia - In Greek Mythology ‘Melia’ is a
Nymph and the daughter of Oceanus. Melia is Anya’s best friend.
Her character is also based on another of my greatest friend’s.
Without Melia, I doubt Anya would have been able to get through anything.
Both in real life and in the story, in serious situations Melia is the
voice of reason but continuously gets ignored by Anya. Melia is incredibly
bright academically which comes in useful with Anya’s lack of
interest in school subjects and not such good memory when it comes to
school work. She is annoyingly thin and also incredibly funny to have
Tithonus - In Greek Mythology ‘Tithonus’
is the brother of Priam who obtained the God’s immortality due
to his lover, Eos, praying for him. As he did not obtain eternal youth
he shrank together as time wore on and he grew old. In my story Tithonus
is Melia’s grandfather and Anya’s godfather. He is a very
serious character who is always concerned for Anya’s safety. He
made a promise to look after Anya if anything happened to her father
and sticks to that in Emir’s memory. Sometimes though, in his
worry, he gets over protective to the point where Anya gets annoyed
with him. I find Tithonus an annoying character at times and sometimes
hated him when I was writing about him but through all of that his motives
are kind and you have to love him.
