Malik Caesar (マリク・シザース Mariku Shizaasu?, "Malik Caesars") is Asbel Lhant's honored and excellent instructor from the Knights' school in Tales of Graces.

History

Malik was born and raised in Fendel, a country with an extremely unstable political climate backed by military strength. Desiring to reform the country from within, he joined Fendel's military, where he met and became friends with Kurt Bessel and Lorelia, both of whom held the same motivation. Around twenty years before the story takes place, they formed a rebel movement to overthrow Chancellor Eigen, who had come into power as the ruler of Fendel. During this time, Lorelia was somehow able to obtain sensitive information that would aid their rebellious acts.

Kurt eventually revealed to Malik that she was able to do so because she is Chancellor Eigen's daughter. Worried for her safety, Malik tried to convince Lorelia to leave the movement. However, she refused and was able to acquire important documents detailing the location of Fendel's cryas supply. Lorelia was killed by Fendel soldiers while giving these documents to Malik. Despite the movement continuing afterward, Malik was no longer as dedicated to it as he once was, and the revolution failed due to increased pressure by the present regime. Malik soon left Fendel behind and started a new life in Windor, joining its knight academy as an instructor.

Appearance and Personality

Malik Status

As an adult and instructor of the Knights' school, Malik is a disciplined man with honor. He is an adult man who can be both somewhat frank and in composure. He is the mentor of the party, being very mature everyone depends on him and trusts his opinion. He is strong to his beliefs and he does anything to protect them. However, the years have not been very kind to the captain as he carries very deep secrets and scars relating to his past.

Fighting Style

Malik is the main offensive spellcaster of the game, though at first he may look more like a fighter. He handles the traditional Tales spells, lobbing out varying elemental blasts that often cover wide areas and usually deal a lot of damage to the inflicted opponents. While his Burst Style is focused on magic, his Assault Style is focused on long range attacks using his bladerang, which will always return to him. However, almost all of his Assault artes tend to stay around the area where the bladerang is flung. He is also open to attack until his weapon returns, though he learns skills that have it return more quickly to his hand. He may look fairly solid as a melee character but he is rather fragile, as his defense is really low compared to his high HP.
