Melissa Clarke was a researcher investigating brain-computer interface at the University of Pittsburgh. She came to the attention of Project SANDMAN when they discovered that she had been unknowingly developing a brain implant that would amplify the effect of irruptor abilities on humans. The agents on the case confiscated her research, but rather than eliminate Clarke or her memories, they recruited her.

Melissa has devoted herself to defeating the Red King to atone for the damage she did while under his influence. She prefers to work alone, researching new psychotronics, but she understands the value of field testing. She doesn’t trust anyone else with her designs until they are perfected, so she joins ops whenever she can to gather real-world data. She can hold her own in a fight but tends to break down after. She considers her own terror to be a small price to pay.
