Melissa Shield is a major character in the My Hero Academia franchise, started off as one of the main protagonists in My Hero Academia: Two Heroes. Melissa is born quirkless just like Izuku and is the daughter of David Shield. Despite born without a quirk, she is still determined to become a hero without the need of a power but instead use his gifts to create Support Gears with a new type of modification that will help serve other Pro Heroes as well, dreaming to become like her father.
