Darth Malak was a Vesper who was a commander in World War IV, who led most of the army. Before becoming a Vesper, Malak was born on the moon in a secret underground chamber. When the Vespers attacked his home, he escaped the battle and fled to Atlantis, and then became a Vesper. He was trained in the ways of the Vespers by the famous Atlantis soldier, Lt. Colonel Jedi Smith, and was nicknamed Squint by his fellow cadet, before eventually becoming a Atlantis/Vesper soldier. During World War III, Alek disobeyed Nilem12's order, and aided the Cahills in finding Berlin. His intention was that the Cahills be destroyed once and for all, but the actual result was the Vespers almost losing the battle to the Cahills. He befriended the Vesper Zayne Carrick and, after taking the name "Malak" in order to avoid an arrest warrant issued by Makarov, assisted Carrick in trying to defeat Commander Orion Albus II, as he and Carrick both wanted to be Vesper Three. As the war progressed, Malak became a close friend to General Erich von Ritcher, and after a pardon from Nilem12 and Commander Orion Albus II, became a major military commander and gained a reputation as a headstrong warrior who recklessly charged into danger. Malak and Von Ritcher, in a coalition with Orion Albus II, Lt. Colonel Lawrence McYodra and Major Bellatrix Valorom ultimately defeated the Cahills in the war's final battle in Berlin, and changed the surviving Cahills passports, so that they only had permission to stay in the city they were currently in. However, Malak encountered Madrigal Katja Khesikhow of the remaining Cahills, and he switched to the Cahills side, and became the Commander of the remaining Cahill military (100 thousand), and has plotted against the Vespers since. His residence is in Svalbard, a formerly Norweigan island in the Arctic Ocean. Malak has made several attempts to capture Berlin, the capital city of the German Empire thinking that after he captures Berlin that A. People that disliked the empire but were too afraid of Nilem12's army to do anything, would join his cause. B. After he captures Berlin the rest of the empire would fall. All the attempts have failed. He has made a pact with Ellen Crawford to kill the Führer and his family. He is proved to gain 125 more soldiers a week. During a battle with Vesper Two, Malak has suffered injuries that reminds him not to mess with the Vespers. As revealed by German Military Support and Counter-Terrorism Department, he is the "scariest" among Cahill ranks that even Amy and Dan Cahill tremble with fear at the mere mention of his name. He was then killed by Nilem12 in a fierce battle.
