She is a plump Andoran with ample hips, bright blue eyes,and thick black eyebrows. Her mouth looks like she is ready to smile.
She is a slightly atypical Red sister in that she does not seem to despise men - in fact she sends money back to Andor for her grandnephews' education. This implies that Melare is not a very old Aes Sedai.
Melare, along with Arebis, Desala Nevanche, Zanica, and three other Aes Sedai, were involved in the capture of Leane Sharif at Northharbor. She did not quite approve of Desala beating Leane, even if she was claiming to be Aes Sedai.
She was also sent, along with Pevara Tazanovni, Javindhra Doraille, Desala, Jezrail, and Tarna Feir, to the Black Tower to put the proposition of Red sisters bonding Asha'man as Warders to Mazrim Taim. He has agreed to this.
After some time in the Black Tower, Melare and all of her sisters but Pevara had been Turned to the Shadow. When Pevara and Androl Genhald led the attack to free the Black Tower, she fought with Taim and his lackeys. It is unknown if she escaped with Taim or if she was killed by Androl's gate.
