Official League Records
On Season 10, Day 1, Melcon pitched a game against the Yellowstone Magic that ended with a score of 9 to -2, thanks to the Targeted Shame decree counting the 10-13 shaming the Tigers gave the Magic on Season 9, Day 99. This made Melcon the first pitcher in Blaseball history to have a negative ERA at any point during a season.
On Season 13, Day 1, in the seventh inning of a game against the Miami Dale, Melcon was targeted by a Rogue Umpire. Due to the Tigers' Umpire Cream rendering Melcon Fireproof, the attempted incineration failed, backfiring and instead incinerating the umpire.
During the Season 14 elections, Melcon gained a combined 9.6 -> 14.9 as a result of the Infuse Will. Their pitching was also boosted as a result of the Non-Dominant Arms Blessing, resulting in a 3.8 -> 4.0 .
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Mummy Melcon is an elder Hijabi and Arab Actress who was born in Alexandria, Egypt before moving to Cairo, Egypt in pursuit of her acting career. Prior to her Blaseball career, she has acted in various movies about Blaseball. She visited Hades for research, film promotion, and The Hades Film Festival. There she met Yazmin Mason, who was a fan of hers.
On Season 7 Day 71, Melcon was in the stands wearing a bootleg “Hade Tigger” jersey which is also part of her film costume. That is when she witnessed Yazmin's incineration, along with the state of the team following it, Melcon hopped the railing onto the field and took up Yazmin’s pitching. Mummy was not a trained pitcher and had a shaky start to her career.
Melcon speaks Egyptian Arabic natively, Egyptian Sign Language (ESL), English and French. Melcon speaks with a low raspy voice like the pages of her books because she binge drinks coffee. As a hobbyist historian, Melcon has a fondness for reading, collecting, and preserving old books. Coming up near the birthplace of coffee, Mummy also has a personal interest in ethically sourced coffee. As an avid drinker herself, she sees it as a great principle of hers to ensure her supply doesn’t come from questionable sourcing practices.
Melcon is also a multidisciplinary scholar. She majored in linguistics and sociology. She originally majored in one, but her studies intersected with the other. Later, after completing her sociology doctorate, Melcon ended up entering the other field. Her scholarly background is what also led to her interest in Hades as a rich source of primary sources for the events of the past millennia, and for immortals who have insight on Hellenic and other dead languages.
Melcon is not particularly close with anyone on the team due to being busy with studies, acting career, and her business of promoting and sourcing ethical coffee. Being older and very approachable, many of the younger Tigers go to her for insight.
Umpire Incident in Season 13
Prior to Season 13, Melcon had witnessed Raúl Leal defend his teammate from a rogue umpire incineration. Since then, Melcon had been working on a hypothesis on how it occurred, and how it could be replicated without the Iffy Jr.
On the first day of Season 13, Melcon took the mound and pitched as she normally did throughout the game. At the bottom of the 7th inning, Melcon's studies came into play as the eclipse glimpsed, and an umpire’s eyes turned white, and turned to face Melcon. She remained calm and collected, as she carefully observed their movements. At that moment, Melcon had an epiphany. There is no proper documentation on what exactly transpired, but it’s said that since that day, the technique is safeguarded and preserved amongst the Hades Tigers.
- She uses her notoriety as an actress and a blaseball player to promote local coffee growers and ethical coffee sourcing. She has had a TV show spotlighting coffee growers.
- She refuses to wear an official team jersey, even after she joined the team and was told she can wear an official one, she was heard saying:
"This one is nice and worn in. They already saw me in this anyway." Referring to her Hade Tigger Jersey
