Eden Rising

Mal was a minor character featured in the second season of Eden Rising. Mal was one of the half-dozen background survivors living at the airport. She was a researcher stationed by the people behind Eden at the Tulsa International Airport, under the leadership of Rory Stiles and Phoebe Denning.



Not much is known about Mal's life. All that is known, based on teasing that Phoebe did to Rory, is that Mal and Rory once had a sexual relationship. Tiny hints of this are sprinkled throughout the season as well, though since he hooked up with Kitty, discussion of this topic died down.

Season 2Edit

Mal didn't have much of a role throughout the season. She was often seen inside the makeshift laboratory checking out the cameras. She and the other background researchers were mentioned as not having participated in weapons training with the other survivors, having been dependent on the other survivors for their own survival, much to everyone else's annoyance.

Near the season's end, after the deaths of Phoebe, Regis and Sidney, Mal spoke up against the survivors, feeling like their leadership is weak. Mal and the fellow researchers began to wonder if leaving the airport is the best idea for them. Kitty, who was in charge at this point, said they wouldn't be able to survive out there and at least at the airport they have a roof over their head, but she didn't beg them to stay, saying the choice is theirs. Mal eventually came forward and said she and the other researchers have decided to stay. When PJ played a radio broadcast from Eden announcing a rescue plane is on its way, Rory and Kitty rubbed it in to Mal and the others by saying they made the right choice in staying at the airport.

Mal and the other scientists accompanied Gareth in the construction zone of the airport, where they gunned down infected on the runway. When the infected swarmed and they were forced to flee, Mal was bit in the side of the head by one of the infected. Gareth turned his gun on her and gunned her down mercifully.
