Malachi is the only one of the core trio who feels any weight of responsibility. That’s probably because his father, Theodore Chambers, is a high ranking official in New Haven.
Malachi is not much for politics, but he has learned a lot from his father about engineering over the years they have been living on the Juggernaut, and Mal’s methodical, book-smart approach to problems is light-years away from how Ellie and Tila approach (or cause) problems.
Every group of friends needs the sensible one, in this story his name is Malachi.
(It’s pronounced with a hard ‘chi’ sound, like ‘Mal-a-kigh’.)
Likes: Time to think, logical solutions, being on his father’s good side, Nina Quinn.
Dislikes: Being rushed, not knowing where his tools are, problems that make no sense, Tila’s impatience.
Most likely to say: “That sounds like a bad idea…”
Least likely to say: “Forget the rules, let’s do it!”
Who I would cast to play Malachi in a movie: Donald Glover
