Malal [1]

Malal is a renegade Chaos God who for unknown reasons turned against his peers and wishes to destroy them [2].

His followers, sometimes called the Doomed Ones, constantly search for worshippers of the other Chaos gods in order to kill them [3].

Notes & sources

  • It's unclear if Malal remains a part of the current Warhammer Fantasy background. He is described in Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (1st Edition) p.210, but there is no description whatsoever about him in any of the more recent sourcebooks (rulebooks, armybooks, rpg material, etc).
  • He is mentioned in the short-story The Laughter of the Dark Gods [4]:
At Caer Deral, among the burial mounds of long-dead kings, he fought against the followers of the renegade god Malal. Beneath the eyes of a huge stone head he slew the enemy leader, a man whose face was white as milk and whose eyes were red as blood. He tore the albino's heart out with his bare hands and raised it still pulsing as an offering to the Blood God.
  • The name Malal doesn't appear in the copyright warning of Games Workshop (unlike Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh and Tzeentch [5]).
