She is the sole survivor of an attack by Horde Prime, after the First Ones were excavating magic from their planet. She imprinted on Catra later on after their encounter with the Best Friends Squad, finally joining The Rebellion.
Melog is a burgundy-colored creature with blue energy emanating from their head along with their eyes that possess a similar shade with no pupils or iris. Melog can shapeshift to other forms but retains the same colors. When they first appeared, Melog was in a humanoid form until they found Catra, with whom Melog adopted a cat-like form with a blue, transparent mane and tail as their current appearance.
Melog's mane and tail change shape to resemble puffed up fur, and turn red along with eyes and mouth changing color when they are afraid, defensive, or angry, since imprinting on Catra now reflects their real emotions. Melog reveals Catra's feelings for Adora by licking Adora's face affectionately.
Melog lived on their home planet Krytis when Horde Prime attacked. They somehow drove him off with their magic but Melog was the last of its kind. Afterward, they lived alone until the Best Friends Squad befriended them.
Catra is the one who found Melog and figured out quickly that it responded to emotions. The magical creature imprinted on her, becoming her animal companion. Apparently, in this episode we learn that Catra has been "working on her anger issues". Adora is thrilled.
Melog cloaked the Princesses as they returned to the Fright Zone to rescue Scorpia and helped protect Catra.
Melog helped the crew infiltrate Mystacor and let Adora accept the fail-safe before returning to base.
Powers and Abilities
- Possible Shape-shifting: Melog is seemingly able to change into different forms, retaining their color scheme. This include taking the appearance of another individual. It is not clear if this is genuine shapeshifting or illusion magic (see below).
- Illusion: Melog is able to conjure incredibly vivid illusions, being able to alter their entire surroundings.
- Invisibility: Melog is able to turn itself and others invisible; as this is done via illusion magic, rather than bending light, anything it turns invisible is typically able to see anything else it has turned invisible.
- Telekinesis: Melog has at least some telekinetic power, able to levitate an apple from the ground to a tree branch.
- "Melog" is golem spelled backwards.
- In the 1985 TV show, Catra had a pink lion named Clawdeen. Noelle tweeted that because Steven Universe had a very similar pink lion, "we made them more alien-like and merged them with Melog, a shapeshifting one-off monster from the original."
