Mellissa Oswald is the granddaughter and care-taker of Hugh Oswald. She is a beekeeper in her early thirties and runs a company called Oswald Honey.[1] She lives with Hugh Oswald in Herefordshire.

Her magical capacity is still unknown. The connection between Mellissa and her bees, and between Mellissa and three mysterious men living in a cottage next door is unclear.[1] Peter Grant observes an affinity between Mellissa and Beverley Brook when they are introduced to each other.[1]

Mellissa’s bees have a hive in the attic of their house.[1] The bees avoid Pokehouse Wood and Pyon Wood during the events in Foxglove Summer.[1]

Other Edit

The name Melissa comes from the Greek word for honey bee.[2]
