He is one of the guards camped out in the courtyard next to the Tower, under the command of Spike. Maalik and others are responsible for protecting Doctor Imran Zere as he researches the virus in a mobile laboratory.
However, Maalik does not appear until the main story quest The Pit, in which the courtyard is attacked by bandits under the command of Kadir "Rais" Suleiman.
