Mel Stefano (メル・ステファノ Meru Sutefano?) was a nineteenth progenitor among the vampires. In Nagoya he was targeted as part of a vampire noble elimination campaign carried out by the Moon Demon Company. Mel would fall to Guren and his squad.


Mel was a tall, large vampire with grey shoulder length grey hair with a full beard as well as black lips. His nose was covered with some sort of metallic plating. He wore a monocle on his left eye. He also wore metal claws on his hand. Like all true vampires, he has fangs, red eyes, and pointed ears.

He wore a nineteenth century Victorian style suit with a inverness coat and a top hat. Underneath, he has a black shirt and a red cravat. He also wore black pants with blue stripes.


Like most vampires, he viewed humans as nothing more than livestock. As a progenitor, he viewed himself higher than vampires of a lower class.


Nothing is known about his past.


Events of 2020[]

Nagoya Arc[]

He was first mentioned by Shūsaku Iwasaki, when he briefed the mission order given by Lieutenant Colonel Guren Ichinose to Shinoa's and Narumi's squad.[2]

After Fifteenth Progenitor Lucal Wesker was eliminated by the combined efforts of both squads led by Narumi, the group congratulate each other on their achievement. Yūichirō discusses with his own squad if the other teams are doing okay and expresses concerns for Guren that went after a noble with just his squad, given how powerful Lucal Wesker was.

Afterwards, it is shown that Guren and his squad has already engaged Stefano, albeit they appeared to be battle wearied and battered. Guren pierces through Stefano's heart with his sword while his squad encourages him to deliver the final blow. Stefano asks if they think that they can get away with killing a noble, and Guren tells him to shut up and die before activating his demons' curse, which eliminates the Nineteenth Progenitor. Guren's squad claims that Guren nearly died eight times in that fight, and decide to use at least two squads in their next attack.[3]

When René Simm, Lacus Welt and Mikaela Hyakuya arrived at Nagoya, they found out that Mel has been massacred by humans, which they couldn't believe because he was a noble.[4]

Powers and Abilities[]

Natural abilities[]

Being a vampire, Mel was naturally far stronger and powerful than a human. As a Nineteenth Progenitor, he surpassed vampires of a lower rank. This meant that he also had immortality, immense strength, eternal youth and rapid regeneration from non-curse wounds if injured. He can also gain strength by drinking human blood. As a noble, he also has the ability and permission to turn a human into a vampire.

After his defeat by Guren Ichinose, it was revealed by his squad that Mel nearly killed Guren eight times. The fight was enough to make Guren use at least two squads in their next attack against a vampire noble.
