Melira Taralen appeared as a pretty, vivacious elven female with flaxen hair and brilliant blue eyes. Her robe was normally the same color as her eyes, and she had her lute and sword with her always.
Melira was a member of the Seldarine. Although she had no true foes of her own, as a member of the Seldarine she opposed the drow and goblinoid deities. She also had a friendly rivalry with the god Milil, due to their similar portfolios.
