Malia was a Taresian female.
In 2373, she welcomed Harry Kim to her planet. Kim had been led to believe that he was a long-lost Taresian when he was infected with Taresian DNA. Malia became the bride of Taymon, another male that Kim met on the planet. She would extract Taymon's DNA from him on their honeymoon, killing him in the process. (VOY: "Favorite Son")
