Melia is a landlocked city-state whose territory consists of a walled enclave atop Delgin Pass and thirteen monasteries in the surrounding countryside. Melia is an ecclesiastical citadel, ruled by the Abbot of Melia, who is currently Lord Caleb Rusor. Unlike other fiefdoms in the Northern Fangs, Melia is chartered by the Holy Triad Church and supported by the noble court in Archbridge largely because of political influence, rather than any religious cause.
