|~ Mevia, about Jesse|
Mevia is the secondary antagonist of Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 8: A Journey's End?. She is the right hand woman of Hadrian.
She is voiced by Kari Walhgren.
Mevia is a member of the Old Builders. She, together with Hadrian, Otto, Harper and possibly Cassie Rose, built the Portal Network and invented the Games. They used to have competitors travel from all over to play in The Games.
However, in time Hadrian and Mevia grew more power hungry and sadistic. They started to make people fight against each other, just for sport. Losers in the Games were forced to work in the mines, until they got another shot in the Games. Unknown to anyone, the Games was rigged, so nobody could win. Presumably for that reason, both Harper and Cassie left.
When Harper and the New Order of the Stone arrived at the Games to retrive the Portal Atlas, she think that they should make thier lives miserable, for fun. But when Jesse presented the Redstone Heart (that Harper took when she left) Hadrian offred a deal: If Jesse won the Games, he and his friends would get the Atlas. Mevia also helps announce and commentate the Lava Race and, like Hadrian, is clearly surprised and disappointed if Jesse wins.
When Jesse was at Hadrian's Palace, he found out that (presumably under Hadrian's orders) Axel and Olivia, two of Jesse's best friends were kidnapped by Mevia from their home world to use to blackmail Jesse. Hadrian and Mevia also knew that Jesse had a best friend called Reuben and, as such, tried to kidnap him too, but, clearly not knowing his fate or even his species, Mevia kidnaps a Minecon Usher from Episode 1 who is coincidentally called "Reuben". Hadrian sadistically uses them in a deal against Jesse.
Mevia is next seen during the Finale, helping announce and commentate the final game, which is a game of Walls. Much like Hadrian, Mevia is dumbfounded and outraged when, thanks to Jesse, the competitors refused to fight each other and decide to rebel. She, Hadrian and Otto head down and confront them. Due to them having stepped on The Victory Platform and technically won The Games, Otto tries to give Jesse The Atlas as promised, but Mevia and Hadrian trap him and all the competitors except for Em, Jesse and (determinant) Slab in obsidian. Em runs away, much to Mevia and Hadrian's delight. They both begin to fight Jesse (and determinantly Slab). Mevia kills Jesse, but thanks to his/her friends, after he/she respawns, he/she returns with diamond weapons and Tim's Armour. They fight once more, before Jesse manages to defeat Mevia, before defeating Hadrian. They both respawn and are beaten up by the Gladiators.
Jesse then uses The Atlas to banish Mevia, along with Hadrian to a world filled with either zombie-sized chickens or chicken-sized zombies. Mevia tries to crack a pun about their predicamen, much to Hadrian's dismay. If they are surrounded by zombie-sized chickens, Hadrian fires Mevia after hearing her pun. If they are surrounded by chicken-sized zombies, Hadrian simply says "Not your best work, Mevia." Meanwhile, Otto (and determinantly Harper) restarts The Games (due to some competitors actually enjoying them) and makes them fun again, while those who don't want to compete can return home, undoing the damage Mevia and Hadrian caused.
Much like Hadrian, Mevia is extremely rude, snarky, snide, unpleasant, power hungry, ruthless, vindictive, cruel, arrogant, selfish, hot-tempered, immoral and very sadistic. Both show no motives for their evil deeds aside from for their selfish entertainment, as well as showing no redeeming traits whatsoever. However, Mevia doesn't have Hadrian's tendency to make and break deals and manipulate people. It can be said that while both enjoy watching the competitors in the Games suffer, Hadrian prefers to toy with their hope, while Mevia simply enjoys watching the Games and the competitor's suffering.
As mentioned above, Mevia is highly sadistic, as evidenced by her quote: "They're cheaters... Let's make their lives miserable, for fun.". She seems to have little, if any respect for others, taunting them and even pushing and yelling at Hadrian. Sebastian implies that Mevia and Hadrian take their anger out on and abuse the competotors trapped in the mines, saying that it's easier for them (the miners) when they (Mevia and Hadrian) are not angry. Despite this, the two of them fight quite well together, as shown during their final battle with Jesse. At one point, Hadrian pretends to ask Jesse for forgiveness while Mevia sneaks up behind him/her and brutally murders him/her, showing that, like Hadrian, she has no sense of honor and is perfectly willing to attack someone while their guard is down.
Mevia also has a comedic side, as shown during the post-credits scene which shows Mevia and Hadrian trapped in a barren world made of bedrock inhabited by (depending on one of the player's choices in Episode 1) either chicken-sized zombies or zombie-sized chickens. Mevia tries to crack a joke about their predicament, which falls flat.
- Mevia is, to date, the only character to canonically succeed in killing Jesse, although he/she respawns soon after.
- It is debatable whether or not Mevia qualifies as a "Complete Monster". Like Hadrian, she is sadistic, power hungry and shows no redeeming traits whatsoever, still she lacks Hadrian's manipulation and dishonesty. She could be seen as the second most evil antagonist in Minecraft Story Mode for her sadistic personality.
- A miner called "Sebastian" determinatly tells Jesse that Mevia sometimes throws "TNT tantrums".
- Mevia never appears in-game on her own without Hadrian's presence. In other words, whenever Mevia appears in person, Hadrian is always there too.
- While this is only demonstrated with Harper, Facemeat implies that The Old Builders (presumadly Mevia included) don't like being called "Old Builders".
