The main character of a series of TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} books written by Creator/DanAbnett and Creator/MikeLee. It was initially a comic strip released by Black Library which follows the same general plot but differs in a few areas. The books are mostly set in the distant land of [[{{Mordor}} Naggaroth]], where the [[OurElvesAreBetter dark elves]] rule city-states under the fearsome [[EvilOverlord Witch-King]].

* 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.
