Wherever she goes, Malacis wears a large leather apron and tool belt, from which hang numerous casting tools. She is old, friendly and even jovial, although she has a tendency to ramble about herself and her projects a bit more than is polite. Her tools tend to be large and cumbersome, and her magic devices even larger, many requiring individual porters, mule driven carts or wagons. She believes that magic devices are the "golden bridge" between magi and the common folk, and believes that by selling devices to the commoners, the Order could replace the Church as the common persons authority, blessing bringer and source of knowledge. This attitude puts her at odds with many in her House, and the Order as a whole.
