Malak's Maw is a camp in Deshaan, Morrowind. This mountain pass has been overrun by Orcs who are buying their freedom from past transgressions with the skulls of Dark Elves.
Dark Elves have been disappearing along the road to Narsis, near the western mountains. An incursion of Orcs may be responsible. The Vestige offered a Dark Elf scout their assistance.
