Melissa Pearce was a 32 year old actress and opera singer who became the second Mitochondria Eve.
In 1977, when she was 12 years old, Melissa had a kidney transplant due to kidney failure. This kidney belonged to Maya Brea, and her mitochondria unknowingly lay dormant inside her for 20 years. Years later, she became ill, and believing that it was her kidney being rejected, she began to take more immunosuppressants drugs than usual. Melissa blamed the medication for her illness, but at the same time, it was weakening her immune system from her sentient mitchondria.
In 1997, Melissa wanted to perform as the lead role in an opera at Carnegie Hall, but was instead double cast (meaning two actors share the role and take turns playing it each day) with another very talented actress named Suzanne. During this time she began to overdose on immunosuppressants. Soon after, Suzanne died in an apartment fire, giving Melissa the sole lead role. She felt much guilt and stress over this, which increased her drug usage.
Melissa was going to have a concert at Central Park on Christmas Day, 1997.
Parasite Eve Edit
On December 24th, 1997, Melissa performed in New York at Carnegie Hall. Aya Brea, who also has her twin sister's mitochondria, attended Melissa's performance. While performing, Melissa's mitochondria strongly respond to Aya's, causing Melissa's mutated mitochondria to fully take over her and awaken as Eve. Her mitochondria communicates with the audience's and ordering them to produce excessive levels of ATP, causing spontaneous human combustion to all except Aya and her unnamed date. Aya gives chase as Melissa runs off. Melissa is last seen playing the titular "Main Theme" on the grand piano before smashing it and evolving into a more advanced form, Mitochondria Eve.
