A deceptively humble-looking woman of North African descent, Malaii wears handmade clothes that harken back to her mortal days and embody her shamanistic beliefs, yet are modernized enough to not attract attention. Her hair is long, braided, and adorned with various symbols of her Berber heritage.
Originally born in Northern Africa, Malaii was the daughter of a shaman and adept at communicating with the ghosts of the deceased. Her talent and calm demeanor attracted the attention of Montano, who saw her fit to be Embraced. When the Lasombra turned against their Elders after the First Anarch Revolt, Malaii fled to Vienna, offering knowledge in exchange for asylum under the protection of the Tremere Etrius. She very rarely takes part in the Courts of Blood and other Clan affairs for fear she and her childer are being hunted by younger Sabbat aligned members of the Clan. While still supporting the Clan as a whole she has a deeply rooted loyalty to the Camarilla, causing many to believe that she ranks Tower over Clan. Most speculate that her loyalty is based chiefly on her belief that the Tremere will keep her from final death.
Malaii has become more active in recent years under the perceived protection of the Chicago Blood Accord. She insists her lineage make inroads to strengthen their Camarilla ties, collecting support and boons for a possible petition to join as a pillar clan. Those within her lineage of the martial persuasion are quietly encouraged to “silence” the louder brethren that exist in other Sects.
