|A Dance with Dragons (mentioned)
Appearance and Character
Malaquo has been re-elected as triarch many times.
A Dance with Dragons
Malaquo unsuccessfully attempts to hire the Golden Company to silence the High Red Priest of R'hllor, Benerro, and his followers, as they preach for Volantis to support Daenerys Targaryen. Malaquo dares not use the city guard, the tiger cloaks, as most are followers of R'hllor.
It is said Malaquo plans on supporting Yunkai and the fleet of Volantis will sail soon to Meereen to wage war and re-enslave all of the former slaves freed by Daenerys. He is up again for election as triarch and many believe he will be re-elected. In western Volantis Tyrion Lannister sees a large elephant lumber past; on its back are a dozen half-naked slave girls campaigning for Malaquo.
