  • 1928 - Born April 5th. Mother was a patient in the New Jersey State Lunatic Asylum. Known for it’s horrid practices of removing the parts of the body the doctors felt were ‘infected’ therefore removing the insanity, it was a place of torture and trouble. His mother was impregnated by one of the staff. She always claimed it was the Doctor in charge, Henry Cotton, but it was never proven.
  • 1930 – Henry Cotton was arrested and tried for the things he had done to the inmates of the asylum. Once he was removed his mother was released and with the help of the New Hersey Social Works system, she was able to function, get a job and eventually married, telling no one of her past in the asylum.
  • 1944 – Malcolm began to study the ways of magic and occult after reading the works of H.P. Lovecraft. He was fascinated with the idea of a supernatural world living beside his own.
  • 1946 – Malcolm was institutionalized in the same hospital his mother had been placed in. She was convinced that the place had changed with Dr Cotton’s firing and death. It had not. Mal spent years being tortured, sedated and controlled through medicine, pain and fear.
  • 1955 – Mal was embraced by a Malkavian named Richard (that was all he knew) while the Kindred had visited the asylum to feed. Mal’s drive and desire to hold onto his beliefs of the occult and something lying just under the surface of this world was what attracted Richard to Mal.
  • 1961 – Mal was released by his sire and he joined the Imperium in NJ.
  • 1972 – Doverspike was murdered and the Sabbat poured into the Middle and North portions of NJ. When most Camarilla Kindred fled to the south, Malcolm and some others remained, doing what they could to not be noticed and help the mortals left behind in the chaos.
  • 1995 – After almost 20 years of living under the Sabbat shadow, hiding in the Asylum to survive, the Sabbat were chased out of Trenton and Malcolm was able to come out into the open again. Because he had remained with those who were and are now calling themselves Anarchs and because he was furious at the Camarilla for backing out and saving their own unlives instead of helping the mortal population, Malcolm remained with the Anarchs.
  • 1996 – Discovered Ragtime and after realizing that he and Ragtime shared a common secret, they became inseparable
  • 2012 – Discovering the death of his sire in the retaking of Philadelphia and knowing his Grand Sire by name only, Malcolm cut all ties to the Camarilla. He does not hide his past, but he does not expose it either
  • 2013 – Fought and sided with the Anarchs in the attacks by the Camarilla. Does not trust them at all and resides in the Trenton Barony, where he plans to stay and should Sonia fail to protect the Anarchs, he will step in and lead the Anarchs the way they should be.
  • 2014 - Took over as Interim Baron, helping to get the kidnapped Sonia back and mostly in one piece.
  • 2015 - Moved to New Hope PA after the Assamite/Setite Alliance forced it's way into Trenton on a massive scale. Finds it much nicer and quieter there. Steps down as Baron.
  • 2015 - Named Ambassador by Baron Moira Valentine.


  • Life ain't about what ya got and ya don't. Life is about livin and hopin for the best. - Mal
  • "He is the one who dresses like the space pirate, right? Don't believe anything he says." - Thanatos


  • He is not half as insane as he pretends and twice as confident as he should be
