Malfegor was a rare hybrid beast, a dragon with a demonic soul, from the shard of Alara known as Grixis. He was nigh ancient, having existed before the Sundering of Alara. During this time, he slew the archangel Asha and was thought killed by many on Bant. However, he had in fact, just been exiled to Grixis. Here, he rose to immense power, becoming one of the most feared creatures on that world as well. At some point, he managed to capture the planeswalker Sifa Grent and held her, trying to understand the magics that allowed her to traverse worlds. It was no surprise to him then, when he was approached by Nicol Bolas. Some time after the Mending, the elder dragon contacted Malfegor and persuaded him to prepare an army to invade the other shards after the coming Conflux. He performed his duties admirably, leading a troop across the shard of Esper, wiping out nearly every sphinx except Sharuum, before reaching Bant and staging an assault in an effort to activate the Obelisk Bolas needed to complete his plan. Unfortunately for the dragon, during this siege, he was killed by the combined might of Rafiq and Elspeth Tirel.
