A tall proud member of the Sun Folk with powerful psionic abilities. He has joined the group, because he thinks he can be of aid and that later they can be of aid to him.
Malharath has revealed little of his background or purpose. He senses the good amongst the party, surmises that they would soon die in this harsh land without his aid, and that he would be lost without their knowledge of how the savage society works. The party knows that he has some relationship with the swarms of sentient bees that inhabit the deep deserts of Lir, but little else.
Initially, he shared a connection with a spiritual remnant of Lir, and was able to summon an aspect of the Other to protect the party. This aspect was consumed during the reincarnation of Daren. This profound change, combined with the repeated telepathic contact with the fragment of Drugal’s soul in Boroff, triggered additional latent psionic abilities beyond his already potent telepathy. He is now a prophet, able to see glimpses of the immediate future of those around him.
During the foray of the Keepers of Lir into Kantan, as members of Qq’s Bloodsport Entertainers, Malharath was one of the primary instigators of strife among the Thirteen. While his comrades were fighting against the Old Eyes Hive, he earned the favor of Bitta the Thin of the Three Winds and also telepathically revealed the true nature of the Night Priests to him. During that evening he also spurned Korvak, champion of The Blight, instigating a blood feud that would ultimately lead to Pau’s entrapment in The Gloom, Korvak’s murder, and the breaking of the compact. Most notably, after the match against The Blight, Malharath managed to sever the connection between the Night Priest envoy and the sentient chaos hive mind while among the celebrants at the High Spot. This allowed Daren to pass judgement on the aberration, publicly revealing its true form among Kantan’s elite. This drove a political wedge between the factions that favored the Night and those that thought them abhorrent.
Malharath became a Revenant bound to Sa-Nah-Gig after he committed ritual suicide in the temple of Lir where Daren was most recently reborn. The act was done so he could bargain with the demigoddess and earn a reprieve from the curse she holds upon Pau and his companions by way of the Surgeon’s Knife taken from Og’olo. During his rebirth, Sa-Nah-Gig placed her mark upon his face and the knowledge of written High Speech in his mind, so he might learn and teach the Song of Lir, and thereby, the Keepers might lift her curse.
He is tall for a member of the Sun Folk, and prefers to keep the hood of his desert garb drawn low across his brow to hide his solid black semi-faceted eyes. His arms, legs and torso are marked by a series of well healed scars from some sort of puncture wounds.
