Biography: 

Melisandre Backus is the daughter and only child of a man who owns "one of our biggest plantations" (217). At one time she was a kind of romantic interest and protege of Gavin Stevens, but although she is "a shy girl," she marries a "New Orleans underworld bigshot named Harris" with whom she has two children (216).

Note: 
CUT: A one time devotional interest of Gavin Stevens. He later ends up marrying her in what is largely a marriage of convenience.
