* AwesomeMcCoolname : Subverted. "Darkblade" may sound cool, but for the druchii it's [[FailOSuckyname a derogatory alias]], meaning 'a flawed thing', and Malus hates it.

Malus Darkblade is not the strongest, smartest, or most skilled of his race, or even of his siblings - but what he ''is'' is the most hateful SOB this side of the [[GrimUpNorth Chaos Wastes]], and he [[{{Determinator}} almost never gives up]], even when there's no plausible path to success.

* SuperpoweredEvilSide : T'zarkan is effectively this to Malus, practically turning him into a demon right there so he can use nasty claws and supernatural strength and speed to fight his way out of a tough situation. He can barely control himself when he's like this. Of course, since Malus was evil in the first place, there might not be a lot of difference...

* SmugSnake: That "not the strongest, smartest, or most skilled of his race, or even of his siblings" part? Malus spends quite some time aknowledging it, during which he reguralry makes some rather stupid and costly mistakes. For instance, he challenges the Beastman shaman to a duell for possession of the Anti-Magic amulet he's already wearing and doesn't bother to stipulate the rule against using magic, because, hey, he's immune to it! It doesn't occur to Malus that the shaman might use magic ''to buff himself'', which he does, nearly killing the druchii.

* ItsAllAboutMe: For the most part of the narrative Malus Darkblade doesn't give a shit about anything not called Malus Darkblade. He ''slightly'' grows out of it by the very end, when he reasons that if his life and soul are most likely forfeight anyway, he could at least hold to his honor.
--->"The loss in ships and men did not concern Malus. He would've gladly ground continents into dust if that meant bringing him closer to his goal."


Added DiffLines:

* YankTheDogsChain: Malus is allowed to gather and keep the artifacts he needs to release T'Zarkan. Everything else that goes even slightly in his favor is promptly taken away or otherwise nullified.

* AntiAntichrist: Malus, surprisingly so. T'Zarkan's manipulations makes him a cornerstone figure of an apocalyptic prophecy of the Temple of Khaine. He's supposed to become the Scourge of Khain and the Lord of Ruin, weild the Warp Sword of Khain, consort with the Bride of Khain and usher in the Time of Blood - a genocidal global conquest that will drown the world in blood. Aside from the sword, which he needs for his own needs, he has zero interest in the bride (his now batshit-crazy sister Yasmir) and has more urgent things to do, namely save his hide and soul, rather than usher in anything.

* EvenEvilHasStandards : For all his depravity, some displays of cruelty disturb even Malus; such as the way the forest-dwelling autarii mutilate their druchii slaves (cut off their ears, pluck out their eyes and cut out their tongues). Don't get him wrong, torturing people horribly is fun, but you're supposed to kill them afterwards, damn it, not force them to drag out such wretched existence! The Skinriders - Chaos-worshippers who flay their victims alive to cover their decaying bodies with the stolen skins - are also not his cup of tea.

* EvilCripple : Malus' half-brother Urial, who was born weak and malformed. Because of this, he was going to be sacrificed to Khaine, but the cauldron of boiling blood he was to die in mysteriously broke apart, and the child survived. Taking it as an omen, the [[ReligionOfEvil Temple of Khaine]] took Urial in and trained him as an acolyte.

Which, if you know anything about Dark Elves, means quite a bit. Worst among these Norscans are the Skinriders; Nurglite worshipers who are the primarily antagonists of the second volume, Bloodstorm.
