Malarus was a human female who served as a commander in the First Order around 34 ABY. She arrested the First Order Security Bureau Agent Terex after he undertook a rogue mission to destroy the Resistance.
After the First Order Security Bureau Agent Terex defied Captain Phasma's warnings not to embark on a rogue mission to destroy the Resistance, the First Order dispatched Commander Malarus to punish Terex. Malarus brought a Maxima-A class heavy cruiser and several TIE/fo space superiority fighters to the desert planet that Terex had pursued Poe Dameron to. Malarus' space forces wiped out the Ranc gang's fleet of "Uglies" and destroyed Terex's flagship Carrion Spike.
Malarus then led an Atmospheric Assault Lander and a contingent of stormtroopers and TIE fighters to the planet's surface. She greeted the Dameron and his droid BB-8 as he emerged from the cave with the disabled C-3PO and a dejected Terex. After exchanging pleasantries, Dameron warned Malarus that his Black Squadron were running footage of their meeting in case she ordered her men to gun him down. Malarus complimented Dameron for his political savvy before ordering him to hand over Terex. Dameron complied but told Terex about his defeat before dragging Terex towards Malarus.
Personality and traitsEdit
Malarus was a tall blonde–haired human woman with an amber right eye. Her left eye was artificially black due to the introduction of a naturally occurring narcotic. She also tied her hair into a tight bun. Malarus complimented the Resistance pilot Poe Dameron for his savvy.
