Melody is a character in Barbie & The Diamond Castle. She is voiced by Maryke Hendrikse. While she initially studied under the three muses of music as their apprentice, she became an official muse herself at the end of the film.


In the beginning, Melody was the apprentice of the three muses of music: Dori, Phaedra, and Lydia. She lived in the Diamond Castle with them, and helped to take care of it while studying the arts of music and magic under them. When Lydia turned against her friends, Dori and Phaedra hid their musical instruments along with the castle, and gave Melody the key in case anything bad happened to them. From her hiding place, Melody saw how Lydia turned Dori and Phaedra into stone statues when they tried to reason with her, and quickly ran for her life, only to be pursued by Slyder, Lydia's sidekick dragon.

Suddenly she saw a mirror lying on the ground. She had the ability to hide in it if she played her flute, and she knew she had to hide in it because Slyder was chasing her, so she played the flute to hide in the mirror. But if the flute was broken while she was in the mirror, she would become trapped in it forever, and unfortunately, that was exactly what happened. Slyder came by and saw that Melody had dropped her flute, and he broke it, trapping Melody in the mirror forever. And since then, she had always been stuck in the mirror.

One day, Liana and Alexa, two best friends with a true passion for music met a hungry-looking old woman. Despite their own need, they still kindly gave their lunch of bread and jam to her, and she gave them a mirror in gratitude. It turned out to be the exact same mirror that Melody had hid herself in. Liana's and Alexa's singing was so beautiful that she could not help revealing herself and joining in their song. Unfortunately, Slyder sensed her singing and destroyed Liana's and Alexa's cottage while trying to find her.

Melody tells Liana and Alexa what happened, and they're willing to help Melody find the Diamond Castle. However, they have to travel a long way to find it. It is near the seven stones. Later on, though, Liana and Alexa got into a fight when they stopped at a mansion to rest because Alexa wanted to stay at the mansion forever, but Liana wanted to leave to find the Diamond Castle. This results in the girls separating. Liana leaves with Melody and Sparkles to go to the Diamond Castle, and Alexa stays at the manor. Alexa takes off her magic necklace and throws it to the floor.

Alexa was kidnapped by Lydia, but because she refused to tell Lydia where Liana and Melody were, Lydia uses her magic to hypnotize her and make her tell her where Liana and Melody are. It worked because Alexa was not wearing her necklace. Slyder brings Liana and Melody to Lydia's place, and Melody was forced to tell Lydia the key to the Diamond Castle. Lydia takes Melody, and meanwhile, Liana and Alexa almost fall into a boiling pit of green lava. But Liana saves both of them by grabbing onto a beam with one hand and grabbing onto Alexa with her other hand. She is strong enough to pull both of them to safety onto a narrow ledge. Liana brings Alexa back to normal by putting her magic necklace back on her and making the wish they made before to always be best friends.

At the seven stones, Melody lied to Lydia about how to make the Diamond Castle appear again because she did not want to tell Lydia how to get the real key. Liana and Alexa come, and Lydia uses her flute to try to hypnotize them. Liana and Alexa pretend to fall under the spell, but they don't because they are wearing their necklaces. Lydia makes a whirlpool and commands them to jump into the whirlpool and drown, but Liana takes her flute. Lydia threatens to break the mirror if the girls don't give her the flute, but Melody breaks it herself. Meanwhile, Liana throws Lydia's flute into the whirlpool, and Lydia goes after it. She tries to use it to make the whirlpool disappear, but the spell backfires, and she disappeared instead and drowned under the water.

Liana thinks Melody's favorite song "Believe" is the key to unlock the Diamond Castle. She and Alexa sing the song and it reveals the Diamond Castle. Their dresses were changed into beautiful gowns and Melody was free from the mirror. They go to the Diamond Castle and Melody opens the door of the muses instruments place. Unfortunately, Lydia comes back, and Melody quickly takes the instruments before Lydia turns them to stone. Liana and Alexa play the instruments, and Melody is singing. Lydia and Slyder becomes statues, and her spells are broken. Dori and Phaedra turn into living humans again, and they go back to the Diamond Castle and they were happy to be reunited with Melody.

Dori and Phaedra crowned Liana and Alexa as princesses of music and promoted Melody as the new muse, replacing Lydia. Melody asks them to stay there, but they refused, and they want to return to their home. When Liana and Alexa leave, Melody says goodbye to them, and she says she will visit them.

Physical Appearance[]

Melody is a teenage girl with light skin and blue eyes with the smallest hint of natural brown eyeshadow, and she has beautiful auburn hair. She wears the front split, and the two strands wrap around her head. The rest of her hair is long and behind her, held by three golden bands to keep it in place. It ends in a curl. Melody wears a necklace with red jewels and gold in the shape of a lyre, an ancient musical instrument that was very common in ancient Greece. She wears a red dress with one strap holding it up on her left shoulder. The dress splits only barely with a trim of gold. She has two golden arm bracelets that curl in swirly patterns, which may reference the magic mirror she had been trapped in. Melody has many golden belts around her waist that end in the center with a gem like her necklace. Around her bun is a wreath of green leaves and what looks like holly berries. Melody has a very natural look.


Melody is a sweet, funny, friendly, and caring girl. She is shown to be friendly by almost immediately becoming best friends with Liana and Alexa. She is funny when Alexa says her stomach had been growling and Melody makes a joke, making them all laugh. Melody is caring when she saves Alexa's life. She is very sweet and, at times, shy, but when Lydia scares her friends, she tries to stand up to her.


"Melody" is a name of Greek origin which means "music" or "song." Her appearance is also Grecian inspired, and muses come from Greek mythology.
