Melanie wore bright colors, like orange and hot pink, claiming they created a positive atmosphere. She claimed to be "part gypsy at heart."
She and her husband ran a clothing store on Queen West, Toronto, called The Clothes Hound.
She was a loving mother to Daisy, but lied to her about her parentage and even her date of birth to protect her. On her birthday parties, Melanie would always get her cake and ice cream, and sing "Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true."
Daisy's "kidnapping" had been made an infamous case in Gilead, with prayers for "Baby Nicole" to be returned being commonplace. Melanie and her husband Neil were car-bombed and killed by Gilead agents on Daisy's supposed sixteenth birthday for their involvement in Mayday and the Underground Femaleroad.
