Post Shah'syss + Bloodthirsty (and understanding the latter card)
I just want to make sure I'm playing this combo correctly: Shah'syss has two strikes for his Melee attack (each with a +6 modifier).
Let's say he kills an opposing character with his first strike, then reacts by playing Bloodthirsty.

1) After resolving the strike triggered by Bloodthirsty, do I still get to attack with my second strike?
2) What does "This fighter performs a melee strike with an ATK equal to the previous strike" mean exactly? Do I still have to roll a D20, or do I use the result of the previous strike without rolling?

You are confusing "Attack" With "Melee Strike."

To "Attack" is to perform a spend order that generates melee strikes in the strength and sequence in which they are listed in the battleaxe. When you declare that action, it sets in-motion the strikes to occur, in-sequence.

So let's say the scenario is this:

You Spend Order to Attack with Shah'syss. You perform the first of his strikes. You kill a character. Then you play Bloodthirsty as a react to killing that character with your strike. The Bloodthirsty strike has the same bonus to the strike as the strike that triggered it. So you would roll your d20 and add your bonuses (+6 from the strike plus any other modifiers). After you conclude your strike from Bloodthirsty, you would continue with the other strike from Shah'syss, as printed in the Battleaxe.

Understood, thanks for taking the time to explain this. The example makes things much clearer.
