Malchior was one of three captured Druchii who taught their magic to Nagash. [1]

History

The King of Zandri, Nekumet used the three Dark Elves to slay his rival of Khemri with their magic.[1b]

In -1968 IC, following the defeat of Khemri by Zandri and the death of King Khatep, the victorious city presented Malchoir and his two companions, heavily drugged, as offerings to attend upon the dead king in the afterlife. [1a]

Nagash made it appear that they had been poisoned but secretly had their bodies transported to a vault in the depths of the Great Pyramid. He offered them the same deal that Nekumet had done - serve him and recieve freedom in exchange. [1b]

Once they accepted his terms they recieved many luxuries and their prison was extended across a dozen chambers. Malchoir was the main teacher, assisted by Drutheira for more advanced lessons whilst Ashniel conducted her own studies. [1c]

Finally in -1959 IC, as the trio once more attempted to escape they were confronted by Nagash who offered them freedom if they could defeat him. Malchoir had already been injured by a poisoned dart from a trap and he was the first to die, as the necromancer enhanced the venom to kill him and then consumed his soul. [1d]

Quotes

Kill us and be done with it, but know this: he who slays us will be cursed, now and forever more. His lands will turn to ash, and his flesh will shrivel from his bones.
