Melhi is a Liveborn hacker.
She is snubbed by Kairominas, taking offence at Kai's epiphany of the Wode's steering him into a "perfect battle", and particularly at Kai's refusal to fight her. After this Melhi repeatedly hacks Kai's world and sends robots to fight him. This culminates in the creation of Sophie, a perfect human replicant who Kai takes a liking to on a date ordered by the Wode to fulfill XinWey's Doctrine. She helps him defeat a robot sent by Melhi and then shoots herself under the command of Melhi.
