Maical is a member of Jorg Ancrath's group of bandits, commonly called "Brothers".
Maical is simple-minded and generally doesn't think very much. This might be caused by a trauma, because in one of the brief character descriptions it is said:
- Whatever broke Brother Maical left the outside untouched. He looked as solid and as tough and as sour as the rest of them. Until you asked him a question. ---Prince of Thorns, Mark Lawrence
Gemt is his true brother.
Maical always rides on a grey horse, which is said to be more intelligent than the man himself. The horse also draws the head-cart. One of Maical's chores is probably to take the heads off the dead, since he and Gemt do this in chapter 1 of Prince of Thorns.
