Kheldian characters have two souls in one body. The first was physical and generally human, but could be any origin imaginable (so long as there was a physical body). The second was the pure Kheldian, a refugee energy-being from another planet. The melding of the two was generally amicable, as it was in Meld's case.
Back when he was created, you needed to have a level 50 character, on any server, before the two epic archtypes ("Kheldians", peacebringers and warshades) would unlock. Meld is my only warshade, just as A Sunder is my only peacebringer. Their primary and secondary power sets were different than any of the other archetypes, and the only reason to create a second of either is if you specifically wanted a Kheldian on another server. This became especially true when each character was given more than one available build.
As is evident from the Description, I never gave Meld a lot of thought. His costume is inspired by the word "war" within "warshade".
