Whoa, homes. You've got to bring some more evidence or theorizing for something like this.
I do think that Meppa is a mystery that the author wants us to contemplate, and I admit I'm totally stumped thus far (my best guess is that he's one of the Incandati who has amnesia, but I don't even feel that strongly about that theory), but this is pretty wild.
In the early WLW threads I recall a fair amount of speculation about Meppa being Moe, either through reincarnation or because he faked his own death (and is now bleaching his skin). I think the main reasons for thinking are:
i) Mallahet was supposed to be super powerful, but Moe apparently wasn't. This is either a big contradition or Moe just fooled Kellhuss into thinking he was weak in the acursed Water, even though he was actually quite strong, strong enough to come back from the dead or fake his own death and bide his time.
ii) If Meppa didn't just come back from the dead recently, where the heck was this super powerful Cish while the Cish were being wiped out?
But I'm just throwing this out there. Meppa=Moe (or Tirigra) isn't my favorite theory for Meppa either. I actually prefer the theory that he's Fane, who for some reason has non-man-like immortality and erratic memory problems (possibly due to being a man non-man hybrid).
