This is Melneeva Liore: An Electric Eel Saltwater Siren from The Twighlight Manor Series art and books by Wendy C Allen. Melneeva is the first wife of Sir Roderic Swanzen, owner of The Twighlight Manor. She is the mother of the series' main character the Electric Eel Siren, Etiole de blue de Azure Swanzen. Quote From: The History of The Twighlight Manor "What exactly happened, remains unknown. Some point to accusing finger of murder at Sir Roderic, claiming he threw her off the balcony. Others say that Melaca had intervened and had thrown her. Some say that she simply slipped and fell. In any case, Melneeva fell from the third floor, down to the first floor. She never woke up, and died a few hours later. Of the unborn twins she was carrying: one died with her; the other, an alarmingly small fish-like creature survived, and was named by Roderic: Etiole de Blue be Azure. Etiole would forever be thought of by Sir Roderic as “his baby“, becoming the only thing of any importance to him from that point on. Devastated and heartbroken over the loss of his beloved Lady Melneeva, Sir Roderic retreated into the heart of The Twighlight Manor, rarely to be seen by anyone again, leaving only to morn at her tomb in Crystal Caves. Roderic's madness was greatly intensified by Melneeva's death, for he now believed that The Twighlight Manor itself had murdered her. "
