Legacy of Kain Wiki

Adult Melchahim are a type of enemy in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver. They are vampires and the descendants of the lieutenant Melchiah. They are the older, more evolved members of Melchiah's clan, in contrast to fledgling Melchahim.


They can walk through areas of Nosgoth’s smoke filtered daylight without danger of being burned. The elder vampires’ skins turned into a distorted green, and their few clothes seem to appear more torn.

In the pc version, these vampires do not appear to have red eyes, like the rest of the adults. This appears to be a port issue as they appear correct in both PlayStation and Dreamcast versions of the game.
