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 themselves. She often expresses seriousness and boredom when faced with challenges, she prefers to be addressed in adequate manner and not sloppy. Melascula has another cocky side which she displays quite often. When faced against Escanor she displayed cockiness as well as when facing The Seven Deadly Sin. Not only is Melascula cocky but she displays comedic relief in dire situation such as making prone faces and speaking in sarcastic tones. Aside from her calm personality, Melascula seems to always speak in a polite tone and adequate tone implying she has some type of manners. She also seems to look down on humans in general.

HistoryEdit

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

3,000 years agoEdit

After Ludoshel 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.[3] They were confronted by Elizabeth, who wanted to stop the fighting between the Goddess and Demon Clan. While she talked with the demons, Ludoshel revealed the giant Ark holding the captured demons. Melascula noted that most of them are civilians before Ludoshel killed the prisoners. Angered, the demons attacked.[4]

The Archangels Sariel and Tarmiel destroyed most of the army with an Omega Ark but the Ten Commandments survived.[5] While the others fought the Archangels, Melascula flew to the Light of Grace where Gowther had taken control of Nerobasta.[6] Melascula corrupted the gate to the Celestial Realm, preparing it to connect to the Demon Realm instead.[7] However, Gowther tricked her into connecting it to the Demon Realm's prison, freeing the real Gowther, who then grabbed Melascula's head and immobilized her with his magic.[8]

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).

PlotEdit

After Hendrickson manages to remove the seal, Melascula and the rest of the Ten Commandments appear before the terrified former Great Holy Knight and Fraudrin in Dreyfus' body. After being informed by Fraudrin of the current events in Britannia, Zeldris suggests that they should head for Edinburgh Hill for recuperation of their severely drained magical powers, on which everyone agrees. They fly out of Zhuhur Valley, leaving a terrified Hendrickson.[9]

Arriving at Edinburgh Castle, Melascula and her fellow Ten Commandments find it in ruins and conclude that a powerful magical implosion caused the destruction of the castle; they also find a large hole, which they link to Meliodas.[10] The Commandments discuss the destruction of the Albions and Galand decides to attack Camelot.[11] Later on, the Commandments begin to recover their magical power by consuming the souls of humans, and Melascula summons a Red Demon and Gray Demon to collect souls for them.[12] These two are stopped by the Three Misfits and Hendrickson.[13]

In response, Zeldris and Fraudrin attack Meliodas from both sides, but he is teleported back to Istar. Galand is angered and humiliated by his defeat at the hands of the "Accursed Demon."[15]

It is later shown that she is calling back the souls of the dead to use as her own army of Zombies to wipe out the living humans.[17] Upon sensing that one of the souls she revived was resisting her magic, she and Galand decide to check it out and encounter Ban of the Seven Deadly Sins, who states he will kill them.[18] Angered, Ban picks out his Three-section Staff, but Galand cuts his torso before he could attack. After knowing of the commandment's defeat by Meliodas, Ban comments on their mentioning of Meliodas' relation to the Demon Clan. A furious Galand asks how he's still alive and Ban announces himself as Melascula began to attack on her turn, but Ban avoided her attacks easily. Galand crushes the bandit's head but he recovers from that as well much to their shock. Galand then offers Ban to hit him once in honor of his feats, and Ban prepares his Hunter Fest, robbing Galand of his power and delivering a massive kick to the commandment's gut. Ban continues with his assault on Galand and soon shifts to attempt a hit on Melascula, but she survived using her power. Galand attempts to attack Ban again but fails to land a hit, while Ban counters with his fists.

The two Commandments discovered a bar called "My Sweet Gluttony" inside a dark cave where Ban, Jericho, and Elaine were hiding. The owner of the bar, Escanor became terrified when Galand gets distracted by the booze and immediately commences drinking along Melascula. Admiring how the booze has gotten better over the course of 3000 years, Escanor explains its content which Melascula credits him for knowing much about it. Escanor asks who they are and the due respond that they're the Ten Commandments of the Demon King. Surprised, Escanor is challenged to a Galand game, with each of them delivering a blow to the other and the first one to die loses.

Despite Jericho and Ban's advice, a terrified Escanor accepts the game and is patted in the back by Galand, but the force Galand used caused the secretive sin to pass out. Before they noticed it, morning had already arose, and as Galand attempted to carry the Rhitta, Escanor snatched it from his hand and told him that mere demons cannot hope to wield this axe. A surprised Galand wonders whether he is human or not and Escanor responds that he is indeed human, but he is the very pinnacle of the human species, introducing himself as the The Lion's Sin of Pride, Escanor of the Seven Deadly Sins.[20]

Current arcEdit

Melascula is revealed to be alive, managing to survive by keeping her last heart and about a month after the death of Meliodas at the hands of Estarossa, was in the strength of the city of Corand creating a dimensional distortion that prevented anyone to approach Camelot. At the root of this, the Seven Deadly Sins went to Conrad in order to eliminate this distortion. There, Melascula creates an illusion of Zeldris to attract to Meliodas and to capture him within her Shadow Cocoon and later to take advantage of the negative energy of this last one to attack to the other Sins with revived warriors powered by this energy. However, being her soldiers defeated, Melascula decides to fight for herself assuming her giant snake form.

She first attacks Ban by catching him between her jaws and although she manages to get rid of Elaine when she tries to save him, the fairy princess sentiment grows her wings and thus manages to save Ban with her new power. After Meliodas was released in Assault Mode, Melascula manages to seriously injure Ban with her acidic venom, but Elizabeth is able to heal him. Soon, Melascula is easily overpowered by Diane and King being later corned by Elaine and immobilized by Gowther. Although Elaine insists that they kill her even if it means that she also dies, Elizabeth uses her Tranquilize to remove the miasma from Melascula's body, returning it to its original form as a harmless little snake. Finally, Melascula is captured in a test tube by Merlin who intends to experiment on her.

Later, when Zeldris calls upon the commandments, Melascula is show inside Merlins test tube in her hideout helplessly hissing as she is unable to respond to him.

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.[23]
