Malcolm is an evil jester and the main antagonist of the Legend of Kyrandia series of video games, while often comedic in nature he is an insane and malicious madman gifted with incredibly powerful magic and sought to cause havoc in his native land until he was ultimately defeated when his own magic was reflected back onto himself via a mirror, turning the jester to stone.

Despite this Malcolm would return in the third instalment of the series (having been replaced by The Hand in the second) and although still evil was actually the protagonist of that game and engaged on a crazed mission to clear his name over a murder he never committed in the past.
