Malessa came to court around the same time as Tawny. Malessa was often with Lady Isherwood.
From Blood and Ash
Lady Malessa was found dead in Castle Teerman on an ivory-colored settee in a pale blue gown wrinkled and bunched around her waist. There were two deep puncture wounds in her neck and her skin was the shade of chalk.
Poppy goes back to where Malessa's body was discovered. After some investigation, Poppy notices the smell of Jasmine and a white petal. Poppy believed that Lord Mazeen was responsible for Malessa's death.
