In fact, Melcher may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.

Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Melcher will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Melcher's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness.
