Bio: Melissa Bowen is the mother of Tandy Bowen, aka Dagger & ex-wife of the Lord of Light.
Melissa has long been caught up in the lifestyle of the rich and famous, largely neglecting her daughter in favor of the glamorous lifestyle she wanted. Even after Tandy ran away from home, Melissa never appeared to be all that bothered by her daughter's absence.
When Tandy's confidante, Father Delgado arranged a reunion between the two, Melissa dismissed Tandy's behavior as something she was doing merely to embarrass her. This caused a greater rift between the two who haven't had much contact since.
