Malyk was an aspect of Talos created in the wake of the Time of Troubles of 1358 DR to take advantage of areas of wild magic, created after Mystra's death at the hands of Helm.[3] Originally a drow lich,[3] the Dark Mage represented wild and evil magic viewed as mysterious and threatening to authority,[5] and embodied rebellion and chaos. He was particularly associated with the rebellion prompted by an uncovered wild mage given no recourse but to openly attack, and the chaos that then ensued.[1]
