Short version: Amelia has a ship that can sail the planes but she's discovered a seal or binding on it. She doesn't trust the people who gave her the ship, so she wants the seal removed. The seal releases a celestial dryad who is the ship and awkward negotiations ensue.

Seimei's role can simply be breaking the seal and protecting Amelia's friend while Amelia calms the dryad.

 Long version: So Amelia's canon is vague as to what she was up to before canon. All that's mentioned is that she ran away to the outer planes and spent many years there growing in power. I've decided to play with this and am stealing from the old D&D campaign settings Planescape and Spelljammer.

Having been instrumental in forging a peaceful trade agreement between ifrit and eldjötnar (Norse fire giants), Amelia was given a vessel which could traverse the ether between the realms (basically a Spelljammer ship). She currently has a crew of one, the princess who was supposed to seal the trade agreement by marrying the eldjötnar prince but ended up joining Amelia when her brother turned out to love the eldjötnar prince whom he wed so that his sister could be free to explore and adventure as she wished.

The vessel is actually a reshaped seed from Yggdrasil, which Amelia is beginning to suspect. She's also found sigils onboard which she's dispelled, certain they are spying devices for the ifrit. At the helm though, she's also discovered a binding. Not being an idiot, she hasn't quite decided what to do with it since she can't tell what is bound.

What is the binding? Well, that would be the dryad growing within the seed; technically a meliai. It is in a sort of forced hibernation and will likely come out of it upset. I had assumed she was a teen or an adult, but after our thread with YT, I've decided the meliai is a kid (seemingly 10 years old I guess) which fits with the ship being a seed anyway. Good thing Amelia has a spinning top to placate her with yes? 

I really need to make character sheets for the ifrit princess and the meliai.

I think this is doable! Seimei would actually be able to give Amelia some warning about what's about to happen, since he specializes in spirit magic and would sense the dryad (or meliai, or whatever) in the ship. He might not know what kind of spirit it is, what it's going to do when it's released, or what it will want. He can definitely keep it from hurting anyone or anything, though.
