Malan is a lighteyed Alethi military officer on Roshar.[2]

Appearance and personality[edit]

He is described as tall and stately.[2] He wears a matching steel helm and breastplate, with a dark blue uniform that identifies him as a ranking officer in the Kholin army.[2] He is dutiful and appears to faithfully adhere to military procedures, as he is seen saluting "crisply" in the midst of a deadly battle.[2] He is trusted by Dalinar.[1]


He is a captainlord of the Cobalt Guard assigned to protect Adolin Kholin.[2] He participates in the Battle of the Tower and encounters Kaladin, who tells him to retreat.[2] However, he refuses to leave Adolin. Instead, he leads the Cobalt Guard as they follow Kaladin to rescue Dalinar from the Parshendi Shardbearer, Eshonai.[2]

After the Battle of Narak, Dalinar mentions that he would have assigned Malan to investigate the murders of Torol Sadeas and Vedekar Perel in Urithiru if he were still alive.[1] It is not clear when exactly he was killed.
