Mehlar was once a paladin pupil of the legendary Uther the Lightbringer, the leader of the Order of the Silver Hand, and a veteran of many battles against the Scourge.

He became a member of the Blood Knight Order and was known for following a strict code of conduct and his strong moral rectitude. He worked well in tandem with other knights, and was a good exemplar of the unity Lady Liadrin sought to instill in them.[2]

The Burning Crusade

Mehlar harbored deep hatred toward his former mentor, the late Uther the Lightbringer, for teaching Prince Arthas in the way of the paladin, believing Uther's "mishandling" of the young prince's training was responsible for Arthas' betrayal and the subsequent destruction of Quel'Thalas. Mehlar tasked Horde agents with defiling the late Uther's tomb, which compelled Uther's spirit to confront the adventurer. Uther's spirit expressed sorrow that Mehlar's heart had turned so dark, and hoped that his former pupil would see the Light again and turn his efforts to restoring Quel'Thalas. The ending text to H [58] Defiling Uther's Tomb implied Mehlar's realization that his actions might have been both too harsh and too hasty.

He also successfully worked with Blood Knight adventurers and Sylvanas Windrunner to create the  [Scourgebane].
