|A nymphal hybrid, with a winged torso of a human atop of the stinging abdomen of a bee. The meliai serve many roles: priestesses of nature, nurses to the divine, and warrior-champions for their hives.|
Meliai are fey bee-priestesses that always come in threes. They may appear by themselves in the lower parts of the Dungeon or as part of one of the various killer bee vaults.

|Slot1||Smiting (7-17)||Priest flag|
|Slot2||Heal Other (2d3+3)||Priest flag|
Tips & Tricks
- Think of them like killer bee versions of orc priests. Smiting, high speed, and a poisonous sting.
- Like many insects, they're weak to poison. This may prove extremely helpful if they appear in a vault full of other bees.
- Meliai are valid targets for a queen bee's Berserk Other. If that happens, watch out!
Meliai were introduced in 0.19.
