Maloch (Intermediate God)

Maloch was created by Oönvala to destroy the world Rand and On created for him. This in itself gave rise to the War of the Vali.

The foremost aspect of Maloch that is known is his extreme cruelty. It is a well known fact that he finds pleasure in tormenting his victims. Instilling fear and doubt in communities is his most noticeable mark in the world. Now that the War of the Vali is over, he limits himself to hunting down unexpecting victims, and toying with them until he grows bored. Then he kills them, and hands them off to Byrda so they can continue their afterlife as her servants.

Worshippers' alignment: Any evil
Area of control: Disruption, destruction

Maloch always appears in dark environments, keeping to the shadows. He has never been spotted wearing anything other than a black robe, black cloak and carrying a black blade at his side. Few have witnessed his actions and lived to tell about them. And it is very strongly suspected that those few survivors did survive because Maloch wanted them to.

It is said that the mere sight of Maloch can inspire the victim with fear (similar to the 4th level Wizard spell).
