Jeremiah Muldoon was abandoned in a military base shortly after birth. A couple living on the base took him in and raised him. As an adult, Muldoon joined the military. His green skin and obvious mutant features isolated him among his comrades, so he found himself transferred from one department to another. He eventually found a home among the Sentinel Squad O*N*E, a group of military employees operating gigantic Sentinels assigned to protect the last remaining mutants. There he met Alexander Lexington, a fellow mutant who unlike Meld, was able to hide the fact that he was a mutant. The two quickly bonded and Meld even helped Lexington keep his secret from their teammates.
During one of the group's missions, Meld opted to leave the team to care for orphaned mutants in Ecuador. To explain his sudden departure, his teammates faked his death, allowing him to do good for his fellow mutants.
