Development Introduction and characterization On July 31, 2008, Melanie is introduced as a sharp-tongued, quick-witted party girl who was well known for seducing men. Upon her debut, she is revealed as the daughter of Jane Layton and Trent Robbins, who is also the father of her half-brother Max Brady. After finding a picture of a young girl that belongs to Trent, it is revealed that Melanie is Max Brady's sister. Max travels to Paris, France (where Melanie lives) and pays Melanie's debt to a man named Les. Quickly upon her introduction, Melanie reveals she has criminal tendencies; using a wealthy French man to drain his bank account, stealing a teacher's wallet during grade school and a diamond bracelet from her friend, Tiffany. She quickly makes an enemies with Max's girlfriend Stephanie Johnson, who doesn't find Melanie's party girl attitude endearing. After being released on bail and leaving Max behind, Melanie meets Nick Fallon, Max's friend and business partner, where the two instantly hit it off. Melanie convinces Tiffany to drop the charges against Max and Stephanie, with Max taking her on a date. Melanie soon moves to Salem after her brother returns to the United States. After moving to Salem, Trent uses Melanie to have a drink with a man who wants more out of Melanie. Nick rushes to her aid where he is shot and hospitalized. Trent is murdered and Nick is revealed as the killer. Biological family reveal After turning in Nick Fallon for the murder of her father, Nick signs over his share of the alternative fuel project to Melanie, allowing her to get a job at Titan, and meeting Philip Kiriakis, whom she develops a crush on. However, because he was her boss, she causally begins dating Nathan Horton. Melanie, unaware of Nathan's deep feelings for her, engages Phillip, who is dating Stephanie Johnson, causing a rivalry with Stephanie. When Melanie sells the project Nick developed to Tony DiMera, Stephanie is kidnapped causing Melanie to help Phillip save Stephanie. However, the two break up despite Melanie's attempts to keep them together. Stephanie flirts with Nathan during their date, causing Melanie to leave. She finds Philip and the two sleep together and soon after begin a relationship. Eventually Philip proposes to Melanie. It was revealed on-screen that Melanie is in fact the long-lost daughter of Dr. Daniel Jonas and Carly Manning in which she was conceived in an affair causing Carly's husband Lawrence Alamain to give her up for adoption. The reveal surfaced when Vivian Alamain returns to Salem to wreak revenge on Carly for murdering Lawrence; learning that Carly has a biological daughter. Vivian plots to kill Melanie in order to hurt Carly as revenge for Lawrence's death. After failed attempts by Vivian, Melanie is accidentally shot by Carly when she attempts to stop Vivian from hurting Melanie. Melanie eventually wakes up from her coma when Vivian attempts to suffocate her with a pillow. Upon learning about her biological parents, Melanie is initially furious with Carly and bonds with Daniel. Relationships In 2011, Melanie was involved in a storyline in which she would fall in love with her best friend Abigail Deveraux's (Kate Mansi) boyfriend Chad DiMera (Casey Jon Deidrick). Speaking of this during an interview with Michael Fairman, Burnett talked about her admiration of the normality of the storyline, stating: "How many girls have fallen in love with their best friend's significant other? It totally happens".In an interview with Daytime Confidential, Burnett talked about Melanie and Brady Black's friendship, which Jamey Giddens said could have been a romance, stating: "I love what Melanie and Brady had. I think they were a really authentic team. There was such a genuine admiration and friendship there. It would have been a kind of story that maybe way down the line, any romantic relationship that could have blossomed would have been a real one." Storylines Melanie was first found by her half-brother Max Brady, and she was baffled when she found out that she had a brother living in Salem. Melanie followed Max back to Salem, and eventually moved to town. Trent, who is generally hated by all in town, was murdered; Melanie was the main suspect. She confessed to having a serious fight with him the night of the murder, but had maintained her cool and wouldn't have even attempted to kill him. It was later revealed that Nick Fallon, a friend of hers (he was in love with Melanie, but she wasn't interested in him) had killed Trent, due to problems with an alternative fuel project at the university. Melanie inherited her father's goods. Initially Melanie had encouraged Nick to continue his work with the fuel project so they could sell it in order to attain money and not turn himself in for the murder; however, when Nick became too obsessed with Melanie and even proposed to her at one stage, she turned him in herself to avoid him. Nick was sent to jail. He signed over his share of the fuel project to Melanie, allowing her to get a job at Titan, and she developed a crush on Philip Kiriakis, her boss at the time; however she casually was dating Nathan Horton. She had a rivalry with Stephanie Johnson, Phillip's then girlfriend (who had previously dated Max, and Melanie hated her then too). Nathan and Melanie both worked at the Salem Hospital together, and he developed deep feelings for her. Melanie chose to.... Discover the Melanie Shawn popular books.
