Malik is of all characters in Graces the most attuned to the game's "mage role", with a huge library of attack spells for his B Artes. His A Artes make use of his "bladerang", which he controls with his mind. These combined with his slow run speed and short dashes lend to him a very glacial, rooted feel compared with his contemporaries, leading to him being vulnerable to enemies. His damage output is extremely high and his ability to inflict ailments are second to none.
Malik has had an eventful life, and has seen the world before. His interactions with the younger members tends to be of the "troll dad" variety, taking playful advantage of his position as a source of knowledge.
