Commander Kessler's daughter, Melissa Kessler (メリッサ・ケスラー, Merissa Kesurā) was kidnapped by Jared Hunter as hostage to take his revenge against the S.T.F., but was later rescued by Claude McGarren and the rest of S.T.F.'s Elite Platoon One. Though Melissa was unharmed, Claude was forced to perform an air-to-sea chase to nullify Jared Hunter out cold.

~ Melissa Kessler, warning Jared Hunter to not underestimate the S.T.F.
Didn't I tell you?! I told you you'd lose... Hey mister, you better get ready.
~ Melissa Kessler, mocking Jared Hunter for disregarding her warning
