Meet Mellalu, the gal of the hour. Part time main character of Chlorofields, part time writer, part time grump, full time thinker.
A very black and white thinker, Mellalu's sass runs faster than her discretion. When will she ever learn?
She's a selectively moody but mostly sweet kid who is actually not a kid at all. She is a creature called a "Tidri", but doesn't know it on account of being separated from her family and people when just an infant.
But she doesn't dwell on it. The past is set in stone but the future flows like water.
She can use her "ears" and tail as hands, which is a good thing because, frankly, have you seen her nubby little arms?
She is a hobbyist writer though and invented her own little language and script based on one word "nisu". Oddly enough, even though she invented it, there pops up occasionally a word that she doesn't understand. What it means is an issue of deep frustration and some obsession to her. I wonder if she'll ever find out what it means?
We'll just have to wait and see...
