Melysse Miron is a mysterious figure from the history of the Church of the Silver Flame in Thrane.[3][4]

History Edit

Specific knowledge regarding Melysse Miron has been purged from the record, and her exact history is unclear to all those outside the highest levels of the Church of the Silver Flame's hierarchy.[3]

Melysse was a human peasant woman who claimed to be of distant relation to Tira Miron.[3] Promising reform, she challenged the then Keeper of the Flame in 497 YK. Believed by the Church to be an agent of the dark powers in the Silver Flame, she was petrified and interred in the Kundarak-run prison of Dreadhold by the Council of Cardinals of the time.[3][4]

Notes Edit

Based on the timeline of Keepers of the Flame from the Five Nations sourcebook, Melysse Miron appears to have challenged Kyra Danth for leadership of the Church (who served between 461-524 YK).[5]

Keith Baker refers to the schism between Melysse and the Keeper of the Flame at the time as the Time of Two Keepers. He also refers to her as the Keeper of Bel Shalor[6]

"This leads me to another question though… are there schisms in the CotSF? I recall that it has been mentioned that the Church uses excommunication, and that the faithful of Aundair tend to be more zealot than their counterparts elsewhere, so perhaps there are churches of the Silver Flame splitting from the one guided by the keeper… just some thoughts… Certainly. Historically, the biggest schism was the Time of Two Keepers, when Melysse Miron challenged the sitting Keeper and was ultimately revealed to be the Keeper of Bel Shalor; Melysse has been kept in the stone ward of Dreadhold for the last few centuries. Meanwhile, page 79 of City of Stormreach calls out that the Keep of the Silver Flame in Stormreach was severed from Flamekeep after King Thalin’s death – and that there is a second heresy hidden deeper within it (I won’t spoil, but I will say that it’s NOT anything to do with Bel Shalor). And Aundairian Archbishop Dariznu – the governor of Thaliost and foremost spiritual leader of the Pure Flame – is definitely on a collision course with the Keeper, who despises the tortures he’s inflicted on his own people in the name of maintaining order. If there’s a split between the Aundairian faithful and Flamekeep, I’d expect Thaliost to be the flashpoint. Beyond that, of course, you have the other cultures that have their own traditions tied to the Silver Flame. We’ve named the Shulassakar yuan-ti, the serpent cult of Khalesh, and the Ghaash’kala orcs of the Demon Wastes – but there can easily be others."
