|Occupation||Knight Radiant, Spy|
To Shallan, she indicates that she does not belong to Taravangian, but that she came to him for convenience because her spren, Spark, suggested they might look to Urithiru now that it had been rediscovered.
Malata is described as a middle-aged lighteyed woman wearing a skirt and blouse, after a southern style, with the top buttons of the blouse undone. Her hair is short in a boyish cut, and she wears gloves on both her hands.
Malata expresses that things don't have to be the way they were with regard to the Knights Radiant. She questions whether they should re-form, indicating that things didn't work out so well for them the last time.
Further, she doubts what is said about the Desolation, being that she has only the word of a few stuffy Alethi about the entire business. She is casual in saying as much, and does so with a wink for Shallan.
Having been in Urithiru for some time, Malata now works the Oathgate there for the core Surgebinders.
Speaking to him of the other Radiants, she says that they are idiots because they assume all the spren are going to be on their side.

- Shallan finds her to be annoying.
- Adrotagia and Malata are growing in companionship as Adrotagia is attempting to secure an emotional bond with her as a lesser Diagram member who has suddenly been thrust into its upper echelons, an event predicted by the Diagram - which explains that the Dustbringers would be the Radiants most likely to accept their cause.
