Mekel was a promising recruit at the Sith Academy on Korriban.

He was met by Revan outside the gates of the Academy tormenting a number of sentients wishing to be admitted. Mekel promised to admit whichever person was able to stand in one place the longest without food, water, or sleep. Revan was angered by this display of cruelty and spoke his mind to the brash Mekel, who only left with a huff and a half-hearted threat.

After Mekel left, Revan convinced the hopefuls to abandon their quest to join the Sith (some by convincing them of the truth and some by lying and saying they didn't make the cut).

Revan would soon meet Mekel again in the tomb of Tulak Hord in the Valley of the Dark Lords. A former headmaster of the Academy, Jorak Uln, had been driven out by Uthar Wynn and became a demented hermit holed up in the tomb, kidnapping any Sith students who happened upon him. Wishing to gain prestige to further infiltrate the Academy, Revan sought out Uln and discovered he had captured Mekel. Revan refused to give in to Jorak's game and allowed himself to be tortured in Mekel's place. Mekel was shocked that someone would sacrifice himself for him, and used the Force to free Revan and help him kill Jorak. Mekel was grateful to Revan for saving his life and decided to leave the Sith Academy.

Though Mekel left the dark side, nothing is known of his ultimate fate; however, statements he made to Revan after being saved seemed to indicate that he would probably not join the Jedi Order.
