Melakon was noted for his extreme dedication to Emperor John Gill. Throughout his service to the Empire, Melakon did much to further Gill's cause, although many attributed his motives to a desire to one day succeed Gill as Emperor of the Terran Empire.
In appearance, it was noted that Melakon bore a striking resemblance to another cabinet member, Rota Sevrin. Despite their facial similarities, it was easy to tell the men apart due to Melakon's Human-like Ekosian appearance and Sevrin's distinctive Tiburonian ears and baldness.
