Contrary to the introverted wizard image, Melnik has quite an outgoing demeanor. He is outwardly humble, never praising himself, and tries to avoid bringing attention to himself when convenient. However, he secretly enjoys praise, and can sometimes be fooled by flattery. Contrary to his father, Melnik IV strongly believes in cooperation between intellectuals to construct knowledge and understanding.
Melnik IV loves to perform experiments and favors an active role in his work, and prefers to attend to any matters himself where possible. Perhaps, as a result, he often dresses in traveling clothes, as if always ready to go.
Melnik IV is an advanced wizard that met Lin on the first day after the Sundering. The two aided each other in surviving the chaos of those days. In the process, they rescued a young herbalist, Fran, from being assaulted and robbed.
He currently resides in a magically constructed white stone house in the northwestern corner of town, though he can often be found around town, gathering materials or information.
