Melik Galerha was a Human male Jedi Knight active during the Clone Wars, a pan-galactic conflict between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the war, Galerha attended meetings in the briefing room at the Jedi Temple on the galactic capital Coruscant.
In 19 BBY, the final year of the crisis, Galerha, alongside fellow Jedi Koffi Arana, Olana Chion, Jurokk, Ma'kis'shaalas, J'oopi Shé, and Shadday Potkin, attended a meeting in the Jedi briefing room regarding the Republic's siege of the Outer Rim. The meeting was presented by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi shortly before Supreme Chancellor Palpatine initiated Order 66, which caused most clone troopers to eliminate their Jedi Generals.
