Sister Melynda Issabelle Hairsch (born Fashanos 1, 5094) is a cleric of Oleani and the disowned daughter of Daemyn and Merynda Hairsch.
Born in the early hours of Fashanos 1, Melynda came quietly into the world. From the start, her family doted on her, treating her like a princess. More often than not, she was a happy child, crying only when she needed to be changed or she was hungry. Her older brothers, Brynon and Alistare, were her constant companions for much of the first four years of her life. Even at a young age, Brynon took his older brother duties very seriously, watching over his baby sister like a hawk. Alistare, on the other hand, actually enjoyed playing with her and allowed her a bit more freedom. The year she turned five, their family was blessed with another daughter, whom her parents named Astrya. Astrya, while a beautiful child, was sickly and was often kept from playing with the neighborhood children, and her siblings, when they came to play.
As they grew older, her sister's health grew worse and more of her family's attention drifted to Astrya. Left to her own devices, Melynda often found herself at the temple, praying to the Arkati. The year she turned nine, she found herself being drawn to the altar belonging to Oleani. She was drawn to it, drawing comfort from the presence she felt.
