Melaktha - Heroic Royal Archeologist
Real Name: Melaktha
The wise, slightly cantankerous Melaktha serves at the palace as Royal Archeologist, a position he has assumed with immense pride over the years. Melaktha is valued for his great knowledge, which allows him to decipher ancient codes and languages. He travels across Eternia leading expeditions to unearth the planet's oldest architecture, ruins, and best-kept secrets. Often these expeditions lead to ancient trouble, such as encountering the Temple of Darkness and its wicked sorceress Shokoti, or if inadvertently unleash the Grimalkin. Melaktha is often accompanied by his young apprentice Stanlan, whose anxious ways often get in the way of his learning and defy Melaktha's measured wisdom. On occasion Melaktha jumps to conclusions and assumes the worst about people. He also has a short temper and has some degree of difficulty dealing with strangers whose ways are different. However, Melaktha has a good heart and will always strive to do his very best for the benefit of the Eternians.
Trivia: Melaktha's production cel is reused to create the character of Agar, the farmer. Alan Oppenheimer did the voice for Melaktha.
