Melchizedek tells Santiago that he appears to everyone who is about to abandon the search for his Personal Legend. He then goes onto describe the time that he appeared as an emerald to a miner, giving him hope and the desire to continue on his journey. Melchizedek's purpose in appearing to Santiago is to encourage him not to give up on pursuing his dream.
