Melissa Quentin Vaine (b. 20 April, 1998) is the author of several The Super Babies books. She resides in New Mexico. Vaine is a good friend of D. Isaac Thomas, who authored the series.

Her portrayal of in-universe character Annabeth Black was used for The Life and Legends: Annabeth, D. Isaac Thomas later said this physical likeness was completely canon.

Her middle name was accidentally written with a "U" initial on both her Facebook profile and on D.I.T. Website, though it later confirmed her middle name is "Quentin".

Early lifeEdit

Born in 1998, Melissa is an only child. It is unknown what her middle initial stands for. She attended Lincoln Elementary School in the state of South Dakota, where she would continually impress her teachers with early signs of literary talent. Vaine, however, fell short when it came to science or math, and nearly failed these classes in junior high. In junior high, she also became a cheerleader.


She began writing for The Super Babies in early 2015. An inevitable challenge for all Super Babies authors is maintaining the consistency in stories written by various authors. For Melissa Vaine, the hardest part of maintaining the consistency is remembering what a character knows about other characters and certain situations at a specific moment in the D.I.T. timeline. Fortunately, Thomas, who is in charge of maintaining and monitoring the consistency in The Super Babies stories, is very familiar with his own details; therefore, he has been very helpful to Melissa. Indeed, there is no doubt these two have created a mutual bond.

Post-high schoolEdit

On her birthday in 2017, she went to a museum.

Upon graduating from high school, she found an apartment in New Mexico, where she currently resides while she attends college, intending to obtain a Bachelor's Degree. Because she finds life to be quite strenuous away from her childhood residency, she is considering moving back in with them. Whether she has decided, or began arranging for the possible transition, is unknown.

Whatever her choice was, she went to Boondock's on her birthday with her younger brother, whose name is unknown. She monitored him for the first time in her life.

Canon Edit

Non-canon Edit


Melissa seems to be, at her core, an obsessive, introverted, and kind person. However, she can be highly opinionated at most. Even those closest to her (including Thomas and her parents) can have a hard time to help her to open up. Due to her dedication, she also has little patience for people who know little of the series she feels committed to.

She is a natural leader, as shown by her actions after March of 2017.


Melissa's writing skills have been called "considerable" by several fans of the series.
