Basic Information Edit
Little is known of Malath's back story as very few actually find themselves socializing with him. What is known is that he is a veteran of the Second and Third War as well as various conflicts which involve the High Elves. Before the Rise of the Scourge he was also a husband and a father. Associates have also said that he destroyed his family after they succumbed to undeath. The space between this point and his joining the Blood Knights is fairly vague. Not much is known aside from the fact that various experiences have caused him to degrade into a psychologically unhealthy individual.
In Game History Edit
Malath's name is first recorded as an Adept in an incident involving a Scourge attack in the Dead Scar. He and various other Blood Knights, stormed Deatholme and slayed various commanding officers of the Scourge. It was a pyrrhic victory however as the majority of the Blood Knights were slain themselves. Malath was one of three surviving party members who returned to Silvermoon. The success in Deatholme granted him Knighthood status and a Blood Warhorse.
Malath has various problems involving both psychosis and neurosis. Malath is believed to "hear voices in his head" which he believes to be the Lich King calling to him as well as the voices of his wife and children. Due to the many traumatizing experiences as well as the average psychology of the Blood Elf, Malath is described as bitter, misanthropic, racist, and cynical but still incredibly intelligent and tactical. It is believed he was at least a bit pessimistic before the fall of the Sunwell but not quite to the extent he is.
The majority of Malath's obsessions revolve around the Scourge and the Lich King. While he also detests and wishes to destroy the Burning Legion, he considers the Scourge a far more serious threat and believes that their victory is inevitable. During the Scourge raid on the Sunwell, Malath was one of the opposing soldiers and thus saw the power of Arthas and Frostmourne. It is believed the root of his Lich King obsession lies with in this event.
Physical Appearance Edit
Along with most Blood Elves, Malath retains a thin but still physically fit body type. His hair is a golden blond and his eyes glow a nether green like the majority of Blood Elves. Malath is rather unkempt in that he doesn't comb his hair or shave his face but rather lets it grow. He finds shaving and keeping one's appearance to be too vain and would prefer to keep his mind on warfare and his mission.
