PersonalityEdit

Melascula has a calm, reserved, yet mocking personality. Upon being released from the seal she wishes to rest before acting and when the Ten Commandments realize that they may reclaim their lost magical power by consuming the souls of humans, she chooses to summon some lesser demons instead of having to work herself. Melascula also expresses boredom and sarcasm when faced with challenges, showing off her rather apathetic side. She is known to be boastful and cocky during battle. She also seems to look down on humans in general.

History Edit

3,000 years agoEdit

Melascula was originally a small poisonous snake that lived for 300 years bathing in miasma from the Demon Realm. Thanks to this miasma, she grew into a giant hooded snake, being able take on a human form as well. At some point, she was chosen as the Faith of the Ten Commandments by the Demon King himself.

Memories of the Holy War arcEdit

After Ludociel imprisoned a horde of demons as bait, the Ten Commandments Melascula, Monspeet, Derieri and Galand, along with Fraudrin, led an army of demons to the Fairy King's Forest.[4] They were confronted by Elizabeth, who wanted to stop the fighting between the Goddess and Demon Clan. While she talked with the demons, Ludociel revealed the giant Ark holding the captured demons. Melascula noted that most of them are civilians before Ludociel killed the prisoners. Angered, the demons attacked.[5]

The Archangels Sariel and Tarmiel destroyed most of the army with an Omega Ark but the Ten Commandments survived.[6] While the others fought the Archangels, Melascula flew to the Light of Grace where Gowther had taken control of Nerobasta.[7]After reporting the situation, annoyed that Gowther read her thoughts, Melascula is taken by the manipulated Nerobasta to the gate to the Celestial Realm.

Melascula corrupted the gate to the Celestial Realm, preparing it to connect to the Demon Realm instead.[8] However, Gowther tricked her into connecting it to the Demon Realm's prison, freeing the real Gowther. Furious at being manipulated, Melascula's head is grabbed by the real Gowther and immobilized her with his magic.[9] Melascula recriminates that he dared to leave his prison without the consent of the Demon King, leading Gowther to reveal that he has no interest in the Holy War. Later forces her to open a portal to be reunited with the doll Gowther.

Later Melascula rejoices when Zeldris arrives to go after the magician Gowther.

Along with the rest of the Demon Clan, Melascula was sealed away by the Goddess Clan after losing the Ancient War against the Four Races (Human, Fairy, Giant, and Goddess Clans).

Abilities and EquipmentEdit

As a member of the Ten Commandments, Melascula is exceptionally powerful. Like all members of the Demon Clan, she is able to utilize the mysterious jet-black matter as shown forming wings for flight. she uses it to battle in close-combat as seen in her battle against Ban. She can also use it envelop herself as a protective barrier of sorts and wrap it around her self to shield from strong attacks such as Bans Fox Hunt technique. Her aura, combined with the other Ten Commandments is so powerful that it made the normally calm Hendrickson sweat in fear by their mere presence and unnerved Meliodas when he sensed it several kilometers away.

As stated by herself, Melascula is an expert at manipulating the dying and the dead, along with their souls. She has strong summoning capabilities, having brought forth lesser demons.

As Melascula was a snake that bathed in the miasma of the Demon World to gain her demonic powers, she can transform at will into her original giant hooded snake form that possesses great strength and endurance as she managed to easily hold down Ban with her mouth alone and endured attacks from other members of the Seven Deadly Sins.[10]

RelationshipsEdit

Ten CommandmentsEdit

ZeldrisEdit

She is often near him and seems to respect him a great deal. During the time they were recovering their magic power, she talked to him a lot and without any type of formality despite him being the leader. This proves their friendship and respect they have for each other. When Galand wants to slack off and drink she berates him, stating that Zeldris would be furious.

GalandEdit

Though they have their disagreements, they are actually very good friends who enjoy each other's company and drinking together. She says she teamed up with him in order to look after him because she cares for him, and after Galand is turned to stone by his own curse against Escanor, she is noticeably distraught. During the great Holy War, Galand protected her without thought showing he genuinely cares for her as a friend.

EstarossaEdit

Melascula and Estarossa are fellow commandments as they both have been part of the Ten Commandments since 3,000 years ago. They seem to have a normal relationship and get along fine. However, when Melascula attempted to eat Meliodas' soul Estarossa was angry and planned to kill her for it. He tells Ban after breaking her neck if he did not do anything to her he would have.

Seven Deadly SinsEdit

MeliodasEdit

Meliodas was the former leader of the Commandments and she looked up to him greatly just as the others did, considering him the only demon suitable to become the next King. However, after he betrayed them Melascula turned that admiration to disgust, seeing him as worthless and useless. Melascula has tried to kill him twice personally due to her hate against him as a form of revenge for what Ban and Escanor did to her.

BanEdit

Melascula, at first, had no interest in Ban other than his soul due to regaining her lost power. She found his and Elaine's predicament funny, and attempted to eat his soul in front of both Elaine and Jericho to scare them. After Ban's adoptive father sacrifices himself to protect Ban, the fox sin began to hate her more due to her being the cause of both Elaine and his suffering. Ban later destroys six of her seven hearts, making their relationship mutually antagonistic with Melascula changing into her snake form to devour him first.

EscanorEdit

Melascula at first had no interest in Escanor and only though of him as a weak human who made good liquor. After he revealed his daytime form and made Galand turn into stone, she though of him as a cocky and arrogant man only wanting to kill him faster. After Melascula ate Escanor's soul, the intense heat burnt her to a crisp, leaving her charred and black. From then on, she began to fear his power and want revenge on him making their relationship mutually antagonistic.
