Attributes and Abilities
She is able to use a spanreed and write in women's script. Dalinar and Adolin both trust her, as she is assigned to be the primary scribe on at least two important journeys, including one that required significant discretion.
In approximately 1169, Malli and Felt accompanied Dalinar Kholin on his expedition to the Valley to visit the Nightwatcher. She was part of a small group that traveled from their ship to the Valley, serving as its scribe. She was present in Dalinar's stormwagon when he exited the Valley; she sent a message via spanreed to the Alethi ship that he had returned. Dalinar also asked Malli to tell the sailors to find him a copy of The Way of Kings in the port, so he could hear it read to him again after having Evi erased from his memory.
Malli and Felt moved to Urithiru at some point after the Battle of Narak. In 1175, they were selected as members of the diplomatic mission to Lasting Integrity in Shadesmar. Malli, who was working in the quartermaster's office, again served as the mission's scribe. She traveled with the team through Shadesmar, sometimes looking after Mayalaran on Adolin's behalf. She was one of the few members of the team that remained in camp outside of Lasting Integrity during Adolin's trial.
