He is lean with mop hair.
He fights with the Band against the Shadowspawn army razing Caemlyn. He administers some first aid for Talmanes Delovinde's wound from a Myrrdraal. He is in awe of Talmanes defeating the Myrrdraal and names him Dreadbane and promises to end Talmanes when the pain becomes to much. During the battle, he battles beside Talmanes and witnesses him kill another Fade. Melten is about to end Talmanes when Talmanes realizes he doesn't want to die and stops him. Talmanes then orders the Dragons to turn and fire on Caemlyn's walls. The Dragons blow a gaping hole in the wall and the Band manages to escape through it.
