|Romanization||mīkiru depa rajīru|
|Appeared in||Rance III, Rance 03|
Mekill Depa L'Zile is the daughter of the mayor of the great city of L'Zile from the Free Cities Alliance. As such, she represents an important figure as part of the nobilty and the political system of the center.
During the events of the 7th Helman-Leazas War in Rance 03, after the Helman Army expanded their campaign and initiated an invasion over the Free Cities as well, the city of L'Zile was among the first to fall to the invading forces. An army led by Henderson Dauntless then decided to use the city as their base, picking the mansion of the L'Zile family, naturally the wealthiest in the city, as their main headquarters. Her family was promptly captured and imprisoned, but Mekill was instead forced to work for the Helmanian soldiers against her will as a maid, in charge of simple tasks like cleaning and serving as a prostitute in order to provide comfort for the local troops.
Some time later during the final battle of the Siege of Kathtom, she was found by a Helman soldier named Rance, who revealed to her that he was actually part of the Liberation Forces and sneaked into the mansion to defeat Henderson's battalion, as well as releasing the Leazas soldiers under a brainwashing spell from Apostle Sapphire, and she providing as little assistance she could offer. Rance took a liking for her and told her that if he were to kick out the Helman army from Leazas, she would become his full time maid. After the battle was over and L'Zile was liberated, she's presumed to have returned to her former life.
Personality and AppearanceEditA fairly appealing young girl, Mekill appears as a seemingly pure and gentle person. Her age is not known but her appearance seems like that of a teenager. She has a slender and petite build, with a light skin, brown hair and green eyes. During her appearance, her attire was that of a common maid.
Being a girl from a wealthy family, she's corteous and well-mannered. She's scared of the Helman soldiers, but doesn't oppose them and tries to service them the best she can, following all their orders obediently. Because she doesn't want her family or herself to die, she willingly accepts to engage in whatever sexual activity she's ordered to. Despite having been tainted by many, she conserves some pride as the daughter of the mayors of the city, and slightly expressed her irritation over the humiliation she's experienced, but she's remained mostly hopeless and demoralized over the whole situation. On her short time meeting Rance, he became an inspiring figure and cheered him on with his mission, seeing him as her benefactor.
- In the Rance 03 Popularity Poll she was ranked 12th among female characters, surprisingly high for a character with such a minor role.
