Malfleur was a infamous sorceress and the wife of Maldred of Mousillon. [1a]

Appearance

It was said she was so beautiful that her voilet eyes could stun any knight into silence. [1a]

History

She had studied magic in Altdorf. [1b]

The death of the King of Bretonnia left the country without a male heir as Jules the Just had fallen to a Chaos Knight on the beaches of northern Bretonnia, although needless to say his opponent had also perished upon the kings lance. His daughter La Belle Isoulde set a quest to determine the next king - to slay a Jabberwock, thought to be the last of its kind. [1b]

Maldred, the Duke of Mousillon decided to regain his dukedom's glory by gaining the throne. With help from Malfleur, the treasonous Maldred set off on the Grail Quest and found the holy relic of The Lady after an incredibly short time. [1b]

In reality the Grail was fake. Maldred and Malfleur compounded their treachery by kidnapping the Fay Enchantress. With the grail in his possession and no one to oppose him, it looked like Maldred would soon have the crown of Bretonnia in his grasp. Many knights who felt unfairly treated flocked to Mousillon's banner. As the Duke rode to Gisoreux to claim the crown, he was met by the army of the former King. Maldred held aloft the grail, asking who dared to stand against its bearer. Meanwhile, the Questing Knight known as Gaston de Beau Geste had rescued the Fay Enchantress from her prison.[1b]

Whilst the opposing army stood silent, the Green Knight emerged from the forest, and turned to challenge the Duke. At that moment, all saw the mysterious woman standing beside the former King, the true Grail in her hand. The fake was revealed for the tawdry thing it was, and Maldred’s followers deserted him en masse. The Duke fled back to his castle, but the King deprived him of both title and noble status. [1b]

The city was besieged for three years by the the forces of the king and the Enchantress, and as its people suffered as did their home. The once sparkling white walls flaked and peeled and were soiled by mould, whilst cracks appeared everywhere and foul seaweed spread across the jetties and piers. Yet within the citadel, Maldred and Malfleur and their followers feasted and danced. [1a]

Suddenly one spring morning, the gates opened although no sound could be heard from within - the Enchantress and a protective guard of knights entered to find the inhabitants dead, their rulers slumped dead in their thrones. [1a]

Since that time, there has been no Duke of Mousillon as the Fay Enchantress declared it a Watelands to be redemed by Errantry.[1b]

Weapons and Equipment

  • Chalice of Malfeur: A skull-shaped jewe-studded chalice that gives those who drink from it either magical power or death. [2a]
