Malaika is left behind with his own thoughts as he listens to Shark and Enemus joke about old times. He appears to be the outsider in the group and that is clearly starting to weigh on him. Indeed, he’s beginning to doubt his place here and with Penumbra. He has a life that he left behind.
This could be a dangerous weakness in Enemus’s team. A demon could use it to drive a wedge into the team or to compromise Malaika. Something to watch out for as the story unfolds.
