Miltiades "Miltia" Malachite is a character introduced in the "Yellow" Trailer. She and her twin sister, Melanie Malachite, are seen working for Junior Xiong at his club, where they fight Yang Xiao Long. Miltia's weapons of choice are her claws.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Miltia is a teenage girl with short black bob style hair with a straight fringe and pale green eyes, highlighted by heavy red makeup. She wears a red strapless dress that is patterned with newspaper articles with the heading "A New York la pop art di Alborghetti". The dress has black and dark red lace layered tulle that hangs down more than the dress. She has an off centred bow belt around her waist. She wears a pair of red thigh-high boots with black heels and soles alongside white lace-up detail. Twin silver chains run round from the back of the boots connecting to layer armor plating on the front of her boots. She wears lacy black stockings that peek out over the top of her boots accompanied by black garter straps that supposedly connect to her underwear. Miltia sports a pair of black fingerless forearm length gloves with red lining around the tips of the fingers. Her gloves sport a newspaper design similar to her dress running from the backs of her hands to her forearms with a light brown frill trim peeking out of the ends. Miltia's Weapon sits over her gloves.
Her accessories include a large long wing-like red feather and two short white feathers above her left ear and a short black fur shrug held by four beaded chains with a white gemstone in the centre.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Because Miltia has only one line in the trailer, it can be assumed that Miltia is generally a quiet girl.
She stands in a polite manner and lowers her head a bit, which contrasts with Melanie's more arrogant attitude. She also followed Junior's order readily, as shown when he dismisses them from the bar, while her sister showed a sign of stubbornness.
She also seems to have high standards when it comes to boys. When Neptune greets them, she, along with her sister show their disdain, walking away and saying "whatever" in unison.
Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]
Miltia seems to have some skill in combat, employing its use in her fight against Yang. She fights using a pair of red and black claws. She possesses above-average strength, agility, and skills, able to do fast shifting, evasive flips, and even deflecting some of Ember Celica's bullets.
When teaming up with Melanie, the two can attack in unison and are able to threaten more powerful fighters, such as Yang. It seems that Miltia is a good opportunist, knowing when she should engage with an opening created by her sister or follow with her sister's assault.
