She’s big, she’s mean, she’s a blacksmith, and she’s black. Malaria grew up near the Kraju Dana volcano. She studied under Tudyk Allaine, a swordmage who specialized in turning regular weapons into something more. Malaria took everything he taught her and added to it, doing not just weapons, but also armor and protective items. When Tudyk died he left everything he owned to her, including his shop. She’s very well trained in most of the weapons she makes, and she doesn’t take shit from anyone. If you catch her in a good mood, she might be willing to make a few deals.
