I gave my best shot at this!

Down the road after being separated from Etienne, Malphuss meets a forsaken elf ranger, Velayn, who takes him “under her wing” to guide him on the right track to being a true forsaken, however he just ends up being used and abused by her instead. He also is forced into helping with the new Plague (several times) and doing some other all around sketchy stuff.  

Poor Mal =(
