Mellis is a Daysider who lives in Kezare, the capital of Lossand.[1] He is the husband of Ais, who is a trackt, and the father of Melloni.[2]

Appearance and Personality

Mellis has brown hair and tan skin. He is of average height, with an athletic build. He seems to support Ais in her work as a trackt, but is nervous about the danger it creates for their family.[2][1] Mellis is Lossandin, unlike his wife Ais, who is Kerztian.[3]


Mellis lived in Lossand with Ais and Melloni. Due to Ais's long and irregular hours, he would take care of the household, performing tasks such as cooking meals and caring for Melloni.[2][1]

After Ais apprehended Lokmlen, she returned home and was greeted by Mellis and Melloni. After Melloni went to bed, Ais told Mellis that Jedan had been killed during the pursuit.[2] Mellis was empathetic, but he also showed Ais a note threatening her family that was left at their home. Ais believed the note to be an idle threat from Sharezan, but Mellis was worried.[2]

Ais became increasingly conflicted about her assignment as a bodyguard for Kenton[4][5] and found herself in highly dangerous situations. At the same time, she came to believe that Sharezan was more powerful than she first thought, and she became worried about her family's safety. She told Mellis to take Melloni to an undisclosed location south of Kezare to seek sanctuary until Sharezan was caught. Mellis was hesitant since that meant the family might not be together for months, Ais was insistent, but Mellis stayed anyway.[1]

Ais checked in with Mellis on her way to meet with Raagent.[6]

Sharezan went to Ais' house to try to kill Mellis and Melloni as revenge on Ais but Kenton, who happened to have been there, saved their lives by using his sand to throw Sharezan through a wall.[7]

When Ais told Mellis that she is going on a trip to the A'Kar for spiritual guidance, he insisted on going with her even though Lossandins are not welcome in Ker Kedasha.[3]
