Melvin Richter is one of the Seven Shards of Empyrean - a group created to inherit the will of the 7 Machinists, the 7 great mechanics in Empyrean history. He acts as Ghent's expert in machinery and science, having created a pet robot lion at a young age as his companion. Frequently speaks in complicated English which is hilariously censored in in-game dialogue.
