Malek is a base commander of the Tok'ra outpost in the Risa system, and an influential member of the Tok'ra resistance movement.
We have never heard his host speak, nor do we know the hosts name. Malek has had several dealings with the SGC. He is very strong-willed and determined, and the Tok'ra cause is extremely important for him. He cooperates well enough with the Tau'ri, but has little patience with the free Jaffa, as is the case for many of the Tok'ra. This is due to the fact that the Tok'ra hosts are from planets that have been subjugated by the Jaffa, and also that most Tok'ra that have been killed over the time, has been so by the Jaffa.
When his life was saved by Bra'tac, he was able to see further than his own misconceptions, and admit to his errors.
He is a competent biochemist, and was later able to help develop the tretonin which freed the Jaffa from their dependence on Goa'uld larvae.
While we saw little of Malek in the series, he is quite popular in fandom. His unusual ability to see past his past experiences and formerly set opinions makes him an interesting character.
He is popular among many female fans, both because of his looks and because of an interest in seeing past his somewhat hard demeanor.
Since we never meet the host, fanfic writers speculate freely when they invent that character.
Malek fanfiction is mostly het and most of that is Sam/Malek. There is also some gen, and a little slash, mostly Malek/Aldwin. It should be noted that unless Malek is part of a moresome, all the Sam/Malek fics I have ever found have taken place after Martouf/Lantash are dead.
