She received her name due to the number of planets she has lived on and having never lived more than one host's life on them. On the Mists Planet she was known as Lives in the Stars and then briefly as "Rides the Beast" due to her riding a claw beast that had been implanted with a Soul, but she disliked the latter name. Initially only interested in enjoying her new life, Melanie's refusal to fade away as expected forces her to make choices she otherwise would not have, and she slowly develops sympathy for the human characters, eventually acknowledging that they have a right to their own lives, and attempting to sacrifice herself so that Melanie can have her life back.
She is uncomfortable with violence, and enjoys being a storyteller, a role she indicates having held in previous hosts. Her physical capabilities are determined by her host. She is initially oblivious to Ian's growing affection for her, and so is surprised when she overhears Ian O'Shea and Jared Howe arguing about it just outside her door. Even though Wanda comes to dearly love Ian, she is limited because Melanie's body loves Jared. She hates upsetting people and so suffers endlessly trying to be as little of a burden as possible.
Melanie "Mel" Stryder — Melanie is a year-old human she was 17 when she met Jared who was captured and implanted with a Soul after years of evading the Seekers.
Melanie survives Wanderer's implantation into her body, and resists the Soul's control as best she can. She likes the feeling of being physically strong and berates Wanderer for neglecting to keep her that way.
She has a temper and may be considered volatile compared to docile Wanderer. Melanie is passionately in love with another human, Jared Howe, and shares a strong bond with her brother, Jamie. It is clear from their relationship and previous interactions that their years on the run made her extremely protective of him.
Despite initial anger at Wanderer for stealing her life, they gradually become unwilling allies, and finally develop a friendship and a sister-like bond. Melanie, despite wanting her body back, sides with Ian when Wanda decides to give Melanie her body back by telling Doc how to take out a Soul.
Wanda did not intend to go on living after she was removed from her head, and wanted to be buried next to Walter and Wes. Melanie ensured Doc had not done that part of his promise, and eventually Melanie found a suitable body for Wanda.
Melanie is described as having hazel eyes, dark hair, and sun-browned skin. Other characters seem to view him as mostly level-headed. However he does have a temper; he shows violent and aggressive reactions when Wanderer is at risk, particularly when it is his brother attacking her. Ian befriends Wanderer and gradually falls in love with her, telling her that "[she] is beautiful", not just the body she wears. He doesn't help Melanie find a new body for Wanda, which surprises Melanie. Ian said he didn't care what she looked like; he loved Wanda for her personality.
At the end of the book, he is in a relationship with Wanderer, who has been put into a new host body. He is described as being tall and muscular, with black hair, sapphire blue eyes, and fair skin. In the film he is portrayed by Jake Abel.
Jared Howe — Melanie's lover.
Jared is 26 years old when he and Melanie first meet in most of the story, he is Loving, aggressive, and somewhat excitable in Melanie's memories, by the time Wanderer meets him he has become quite bitter. He bears a grudge against Wanderer, and is unable to empathize with her for most of the book.
He starts to change his views on the Soul, however, when he sees her comforting a dying friend. He is somewhat of a rival to Ian O'Shea, who sees him as competition for Wanderer's affections. He also has a parental relationship with Jamie, whom he continued to care for after Melanie's capture. He is described as being muscular and tall, with tan skin, sienna-colored eyes and naturally dark, but sun-bleached hair. His survival skills are an asset to the group, and he is considered responsible and capable by most other characters, but his rational thinking sometimes becomes a bother to the more sentimental humans.
In the film he is portrayed by Max Irons. Jamie Stryder — Jamie is Melanie's brother and is 14 years old when he first meets Wanderer. His behavior and emotions are generally childish, representing an idealized innocence; unlike most characters, he holds no animosity towards Wanderer for stealing his sister's body or life. He quickly comes to view Wanderer as a substitute sibling, and draws her into the group with his interest in her stories and opinions.
Despite his apparent innocence and naivete, Jamie wants to be treated like an adult; he yearns to go on raids with the others, and is uncomfortable with the coddling he receives when he is injured. He describes the medicine Wanda brings to save him as 'magic' and gets to choose Wanda's body in the end.
Jamie is portrayed by Chandler Canterbury in the film. Midnight Sun, anyone? Just because she said on Oprah or where ever she hoped to do two sequels to her best book, doesn't mean she will.

Edit February 10th, "Stephenie Meyer has confirmed that there will be two Host sequels! I wonder if goodreads can be edited by users, like Wikipedia.
Cause these blurbs are ridiculous. This blurb sounds way to excited for two Host sequels. Shouldn't it be more objective than that?
Also, just to note, this book should have come out last year, and it still doesn't have A A proper blurb, B A cover, or C A reliable author. I'll probably be 30 by the time this book finally gets written. IF she ever writes it, it will be just to get more money from the movie deals she will get. Edit June 20th, OMG!
