Malcom was a mercenary soldier for the armies of Loflen, or maybe it was Thuso (the details of his stories seem to vary each time they are told, depending on who is in the audience). Nevertheless, he left the army in order to follow his calling as an acolyte and then priest in the temple of Tempus, the God of War. He is neither a righteous holy warrior for the virtues of justice nor a bloodthirsty vandal hellbent on destruction; Malcom prefers the the sport of war and the spoils of conquest, with a slight sadistic turn when it comes to the misfortunes of others. An opportunity to seek fortune in the Dungeon Runners seemed a perfect way to honor his god and line his pockets.
