Malum is a crazy, death-obsessed Marrowkai who loves to "experiment" (torture) with his victims in order to create the perfect unit for Chaos. No one really knows where this twisted soul came from, but many fear the mere mention of his name. In Chaos, he is best-known for creating the Deads. Malum met his end to a courageous young Spearton who, without any concern for his own safety, charged through ranks and ranks of Crawlers and Deads before snapping the necromancer's staff (simultaneously disabling all the Deads and other beings of dark magic as well as every shred of Malum's power) and decapitating his bony head. The head in question is now a prominent feature of the Order Museum of Warfare and Natural History.
