Malala is the eldest daughter of two waterbenders by the name Sakumo and Mirajane. Together with her little brother Shingo did they grew up in Republic City under a hard non-bending rules that were put up by their father. To the age of 15 did she help in her parents flower shop. She later on took a job as a healer in the pro-bending matches to keep in tac with her bending heritage. Her first appearance is when Bolin has to go to a different healer because of capacity measures. He realises her unusually fast and precise healing abilities and ask her to become their personal healer to which she agreed. After walking her home late night do both Bolin and Mako witness her protigi bending ability when she defeats a robber. Malala later on gets the role as the Fire Ferrets waterbender when Hasook gets sick. She does this without the agreement of her parents and is forced to quit her healer job forever. She shows up later on to cheer her former team on by the big fight. The moment Amon attacks does she, Shingo and her parents fight the Equalists. It ends up in a one on one fight between Malala and the lieutenant in the water pool under the playing field. Her mother bending is taken which leads her family into hiding. This stops after Bolin is taken by the Equalists and Malala against her parents will helps Korra and Mako rescue him. She joins the new Avatar in their fight against the Equalist soon after to find a way to return her mother her bending.

In the following months did Malala help her parents in their flower job she confesses to be boring to Asami alter on. To further her waterbending training does she join the rest of Team Avatar to their journey to the Southern watertribe. After the Harmonic Convergence does she stay there for more training. This is put to a stop when the Red Lotus tries to capture Korra in Zaofu.

After taking down the Red Lotus is Malala forced to return to her boring life. She gets engaged against her will to a wealthy non bender named Risa. She joins Team Avatar again to bring down Kuvira which triggers her parents biggest fear. She become a bloodbender in order to stop the troop from going forward. This puts her into severe trouble that is luckily stopped by Katara who speaks a good word for her. Malala's engagement is broken off and she instead dates Bolin.


Malala was always cocky and sarcastic which lead into her not having any friends for the most of her life. This changed her and made her a kind person instead ready to do anything to keep the people near her by her side for a little longer.

She was fascinated by the waterbending ways since childhood when she saw street acrobats using it. She learned really fast which lead into her family forbidding her and her brother waterbending. Malala ignored this and followed her passion which escalated into becoming a bloodbender.

She cares deeply for her loved ones which leads into her being overprotective. This often goes as far bringing herself into danger on daily basis to save them. This was proven when she fought the Equalist Lieutenant after her family was knocked out and her mother's bending was taken.

Her kind act is dropped whenever in battle where her rough side takes over and beats up anything in her way. This is seen in her fights against Kuvira's troops were mercilessly slayed one person after another even using her newly gained bloodbending.
