|Relatives|| Prince (younger brother),
|Appearance(s)||The Forgotten Sands|
Malik is the Prince's older brother and son of King Sharaman of Persia. In The Forgotten Sands he rules a kingdom of his own and appears to care about his people, trying to use Solomon's Army to stop the invasion of his kingdom to save his people, but nothing played out as he had planned.
Malik is the Prince's older brother, and was a mentor to him when they were younger. It was Malik who showed the Prince how to hold and fight with a sword. As children, Malik took care of the Prince while their father, Sharaman, fought many battles. As adults, the two enjoy teasing one another. The Prince still looks up to Malik and follows his lead, even when he’s sure Malik is wrong. For his part, Malik is still protective of the Prince and doesn’t think his younger brother understands exactly what good leadership entails.
Malik is a good leader, but stubborn. He has held this kingdom for years and refuses to give it up now. He will use any means necessary to stop the invading army – including magic he does not fully understand.
Malik dies after he stabs Ratash, the leader of the Sand Army which Malik unlocked to save his citizens. However, his plans backfire when the Army turns all of his citizens into sand statues. Ratash then killed Malik partially and took over his body. When the Prince kills Ratash (who has taken over Malik's body so much that it is now in its original form), Malik regains his original body, but is too weak and dies.
It is unknown if Malik took part in battle against the Maharaja before the Prince made the Grand Rewind. It is possible that he was taking care of his own kingdom at that time or was transformed into a Sand Monster as King Sharaman was, but the Prince didn´t mention fighting his brother as a Sand Monster.

Expert Swordsman: Malik has displayed a high level of skill with his sword. While not as skilled as the Prince, he was able to fight in a Battlefield and defeat his enemies with apparent ease. He was able to also defeat Ratash(before he was absorb into Malik). He was the one who also taught the Prince how to hold a sword.
Leadership: Malik has shown himself to be a great leader, commanding his army and holding his kingdom for over a year. The Prince even comments on this. He was the reason why the Prince visited Malik's kingdom in The Forgotten Sands, due to the people around the Prince thinking he has no battle experience(Due to the Grand Rewind). However, he is shown to be stubborn, a fatal flaw that costed his life.
Despite displaying Superhuman-like feats during his Battle with Ratash, Malik posesses no natural powers. However, he gains magical powers while wearing half of the Medallion throughout The Forgotten Sands, giving him some abilities similar to Ratash.
- The name Malik may be a reference to another Ubisoft game, Assassin's Creed where one of the Assassins that helped the main character was also called Malik. He also looks like Bartolomeo d'Alviano another character from Assassin's Creed.
- "Malik," in Arabic,Urdu, Hindi, Bengali, and Persian means master, or owner.
- Malik is the mixture of both Tus and Garsiv in the Sands of Time movie because he is both a leader, older and is a good swordsman.
- Malik's armor is also an alternate skin for The Forgotten Sands.
