Dr. Melanie Granger is the chief administrator and a practicing surgeon at Western Regional Hospital, upstate from GPF Software's office and not far from the former Lakatos Pharmaceuticals resort. Dr. Granger is a model medical professional with a wonderful bedside manner and deep empathy for the patients under her care. That said, she can also be shrewd and efficient as an administrator and rarely tolerates interruptions to her staff and their duties.
When Nick and Trudy were brought to Western Regional following the car crash at the end of their escape from Lakatos, they were placed under Dr. Granger's personal supervision. As Granger nursed the pair back to health, she soon found herself butting heads first with police lieutenant Mark Stone and later U.G.A. Agent #18, both of which sought answers concerning the mysterious events at the Lakatos resort. Nick and Trudy were the only known witnesses to these events, with Trudy suffering amnesia and Nick locked in a coma. Thinking primarily of her patients' safety, she successfully held the two detectives at bay until Agent #18, now a "puppet" of the mysterious alien invaders, isolated her and converted her to an alien slave as well. Once Emperor Nicholas the Puissant (masquerading as a janitor at the hospital) was also converted, Granger and her alien master replicated Nick's injuries to allow the former emperor to masquerade as Nick and return to GPF in his place.
During Scylla and Charybdis, Granger was found to be aboard one of the Physaric ships, serving in an unknown capacity. During the climax, Granger, like the rest of the human "puppets", was freed from their control by Nick and did her best to help during the stand-off between Nick, the Physarics, and the Greys. After the situation was resolved, Granger was among the human "survivors" who came aboard the Grey ship. She currently serves as the group's "chief medical officer" and assists the team in medical issues, including discovering and monitoring Ki's pregnancy.
