Malan is the husband of Vakrez Noavek, who is in charge of training Shotet soldiers. Malan helps translate Othyrian for the Shotet news feed. He is described as a small, thin man, with a light beard and bright eyes. His voice is reedy.
We first meet Malan at Ryzek’s dinner party where Cyra tortures Uzul.
He is next seen on Pitha, part of the voyage to the capital city.
