Malden is a granite walled city in northern Altara that was taken and claimed by the Shaido. It had been prosperous, a producer of wool and wine of fair quality. Almost half of the southern part of the city was burned in the looting while Aiel took it, mostly because of their hesitancy to use water to put out flames and their general unfamiliarity with fire and how it spreads. The city is supplied with water via an aqueduct from a lake around ten miles away. Along the walls are multiple stone watchtowers and in the northeastern corner is the fortress, adjacent to the inflow from the aqueduct.
