Enemy of: Angela Nix
Ally: Archer Petit
Malik was a criminal who was a close friend of mercenary Archer Petit. When Petit (working for Duncan Carlisle) kidnapped Angela Nix (a nurse who worked with Dr. Ellen Sanders), it was Malik who helped Petit transport the captive. But Angela broke away from Malik's grasp and started to run away. Petit shot her, killing her. Malik helped Petit hide the body.
Malik was seen in the 5th episode of the TV series "Hostages." He is seen in a flashback that is shown when Petit explains to Carlisle that Angela Nix is dead, and not simply held captive somewhere as Carlisle had wanted.
In episode 5 of the TV series, Archer Petit mentioned that his friend Malik helped him hide the dead body of Angela Nix. (Petit is one of the three core operatives working under Duncan Carlisle in his plot to assassinate the U.S. President.)
Duncan Carlisle asked Archer where Angela's body was. Archer told him: "Malik's storage unit. But the cops will find it if we don't move it soon. Malik got busted yesterday with a kilo of coke."
