"He's a pompous arsehole. But he's the best soldier I've ever met."
Malcolm Melea is the second-in-command on Renfrith's Band, and leader of the Sons of Planaast.
Malcolm Melea was born into the house of Melea, a rich merchant family from Falder Nor. He was born in 603, the third son of Donat and Felicity Melea. Being the third son and unlikely to inherit much Malcolm decided to seek his own fortune. He met Renfrith in Velibor in 633 and joined the company Renfrith was building. Malcolm used much of his personal wealth to help start Renfrith's Band and has been a loyal friend to Renfrith ever since.
