Malik's Voice and Theme

Malik Ibn Rashidan in Roleplay

Malik Ibn Rashidan was IS a player character.

Physical Characteristics

Height: 6'5” Mass: 180 lbs

Build and Skin Color: Malik is tall for a Cohronl, standing at 6'5“. Below his dark brown skin he has a well toned body, with a balance between being overly muscled and completely scrawny, the build of someone who is more athletic than strong.

Facial Features and Eye Color: Malik has a strong, roughly built face, with prominent eyebrows and sideburns. Besides the sideburns, he lacks any noticeable facial hair, and he would rather keep it that way. He has deep, violet eyes, with a slight glow to them

Hair Color and Style: Malik has vibrant, bright orange hair,cut short and cropped close to his head. Recently, Malik has let his bangs grow to mostly cover his forehead, and meticulously keeps them trimmed every day.

Distinguishing Features: While Malik's mix of deep Violet eyes, vibrant orange hair, and sideburns are a bit uncommon, what really stands out is his size, being a little too big to be a Cohronl. Malik has recently shaved off his sideburns, deeming them 'too much like hero worship'.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Malik is a firey young man in his early 20's, A young lion who is always eager and willing to do what is asked of him. However, he's a stickler for following the rules and has little patience for those that attempt to get ahead by breaking them. He constantly strives to better himself and to perform above and beyond of what's required of him. Recently, he was forced to realize, over a brief hospital stay, that his cohronl superiority had no basis, and that continuing to be a self-righteous idiot would only drive everyone away from him. Deciding that the real reason he had joined the AV was not to be a hero like he thought, he became less idiotic, taking the time to look and think before acting. No longer the hotheaded idiot who was constantly shot down, Malik slowly started to change into a responsible pilot, leader, and more importantly, he stopped his hero worship of people like Sankhur Fraizig and his brother.

Likes: Roast Herdtitan, Khiyai Sahrzad, Giant robots(Specifically the Organoid units),Repulsion Dueling,Repulsion Brawling, Quodr Racing, Reading, diving, His mother, his sister Dislikes: Cheaters, People who cannot keep their temper, Being asked to perform suspicious duties, Civilians who dislike the military, Being Useless, Rebel Cohronls, his Father, His brother Goals: Malik's dream is to become a hero, for the sake of those who cannot protect themselves Malik's ambition is to become a Frame Officer.


Family (or Creators)

Abudallah Rashidan- Father,Cohronl, Engineer, 56 Saviah Rashidan- Mother,Mazerinii, Nurse, Retired Frame Runner, 49 Selim Rashidan- Elder Brother, Cohronl, Anti-Government Frame Runner, Location Unknown 24 Fatima Rashidan- Elder Sister, Cohronl, Erla Miraiv Naval Officer, 26


Malik is a mixed breed, Half-Cohronl and Half-Mazerinii, born on Mazerin and raised in one of the many space colonies in the Iruotl system. Life was pretty tame growing up. His father was an engineer, his mother worked as a nurse after retiring from her position as a frame runner, and they both worked their best to raise their three children: Fatima, the eldest; Selim, the middle child; and Malik, the youngest.

The youngest of three children, Malik admired his elder siblings, as well as the military. It was already a given that all three of the Rashidan siblings would join the military. While his sister admired the gleaming ships of the Astral Vanguard, Malik and his brother fell in love with the Astral Vanguard's Giant bipedal war machines, the Organoids, and they filled childhood playtimes and teenage dreaming.

However, what really set off his love for the machines was one time when he was little, when his mother was still a Frame Runner. His mother, already seeing the spirit of a pilot within her youngest child managed to sneak Mal into her VANDR, Shamshir, and let him ride around in it, in her lap for an hour. The experience, though it caused the young cohronl to fall asleep afterwards from excitement, set Malik down the path to join the Astral Vanguard.

Bahram Wing

Upon completeing basic training, Malik was assigned to Bahram Wing, under the command of Marranr Serhan Nejem and the Temple guard, Vaytulri Mu'Tasim Farouk. Strangely, the Vaytulri took a liking to Malik's stalwart loyalty, though the Marranr was annoyed by the runner's insistence that he would surpass the “Ice Wyrm”; Though Malik began to idolise Mu'Tasim's Charisma and faith, and Serhan's prescence and command ability.

On his first day in the wing, he ran into Vayshirin Khiyai Sahrzad, who, unknown to him, but apparently known to everyone else, had taken a liking to him; and Senshiring Anik Vadranno, who set events into motion that caused Malik to get labled a pervert, and caused Khiyai to run away, angry and blushing. Quick on the uptake, Malik ran after her, and apologised, which only managed to make her blush more, call him a “Courageous Idiot”, and run away. Before he had a chance to pursue her further, Serhan called the wing together, for an important and futile mission: To search for his adoptive daughter, Arzu. Giving up before he had a chance to embarress himself, he snuck away, and headed down to the Hangar to talk to Khiyai see his VANDR. As he got down there, he was chastised by Khi, who insisted on following him to “Make Sure He Didnt Hurt Himself”, a partial truth. Through a series of bad comments, naive idealism, and thick headedness on his part, Malik and Khiyai both ended up angry at each other, both refusing to talk to each other for a while.

Mission 1

After receiving his own So-M1-1A Erla VANDR unit, which he christened Shamshir.



Malik is proficient in both defensive and offensive hand-to-hand techniques as well as the use of several hand weapons, including knives, pistols, rifles and light explosives such as grenades. He is in excellent physical form, with sufficiently high endurance to survive situations such as elevated G-forces. Due to his upbringing on the orbital colonies, where gravity wasnt always a fact of life, he is somewhat used to moving around in Zero-G conditions. In a somewhat romantic view of combat, he has dabbled in training with the standard issue Faelraig laser sword, becoming proficient in its use and operation.

Technology Operation

Malik has had extensive courses in the use of NI systems aboard the Organoid craft employed by the Astral Vanguard, and understands how to properly utilize his own entry ports to interface with compatible systems. The use of standard-issue electronic devices and conventional computers have also been a part of his education. Constant practice in VANDR Simulation, combined with diving has given Malik a solid set of skills, techniques and strategies for use out during actual operations in an Organoid craft. Additionally this experience has made him quite comfortable when interfacing with various computer systems through his entry ports.


Malik is capable of using all standard communications found in the Iromakuanhe Astral Commonwealth, in particular those employed by the Astral Vanguard. This includes laser, radio and MASC-enhanced variations in various formats and media. He is fluent in Saalsari and Haidasari, and can speak, read and write it correctly. He can communicate clearly even while under fire or in other unnerving situations. Furthermore, Malik is a capable diver.


Malik is capable of basic medical techniques, including everything up to first aid, emergency care such as CPR or the Heimlich maneuver and the administering of preprepared medicine, such as painkillers or stimulants.


Malik has advanced comprehension and practical ability in the piloting of a Powered Frame unit, capable of flying under most conditions and operating all of the onboard weaponry safely and efficiently in combat scenarios. He can make complex battlefield maneuvers while under high stress (combat, etc) and adjust his movements to compensate for all logical combat variables (gravity, weapons fire, atmospheric conditions, etc). He understands the basic functionality of his machine and can make basic repairs to certain subsystems. Malik is a gifted pilot, his love of organoids mixed with near constant simulation routines and diving


Malik has learned the essentials of tactics and command, but has not achieved the required level of mastery to put himself in a command position. However, he is capable of giving and following tactical orders quickly and efficiently in combat scenarios and can follow the command structure of his unit or wing while under highly stressful conditions (combat, etc). He is capable of making use of the information given to him (tactical maps, target statistics, marked targets, etc) and finding relevant information to send to the rest of his unit.

Mechanics and Repair

Malik has an understanding of the technologies employed by the Astral Vanguard, and is well versed in the techniques behind their repairs. He understands the separate methods behind doing those repairs on both organoid and conventional technologies. He can spot certain obvious weaknesses on most craft, and find some others with a proper blueprint and time to study it. Malik is extremely knowledgeable about the Erla VANDR, more so than the average pilot, due to his near obsessive fanboyism over the machine. If, say, a new Organoid were developed, he would be all over it.
