It is unknown whether there is some connection between this Mahk and the Mahk in Kamadan, as both share the name "Mahk" and both are toy makers. It is speculated that the Mahk in Kamadan could possibly actually be of Vabbian descent and has been recruited for the army.
While on guard duty Mahk says, "Want to try my new wind-up pony? You can keep it, but you'll have to come back every month to get it wound up again.... for a small fee of course. Hey, wait! Where are you going?". This appears to be a reference to the monthly charges required of players in most MMORPG games, something that Guild Wars has avoided.
