Personality[edit | edit source]
Even though Malchor was Khelben Arunsun's second-most powerful follower, other than Laeral Silverhand, he was also the most skeptical of the Moonstars. While in his tower, Malchor disliked interruptions but rewarded his students' patience, as well as loyal friends and faithful followers, with praise, shelter, gifts, and magical aid. He could be somewhat brusque and arrogant, but he also had a sense of humor.
History[edit | edit source]
In 1356 DR, Malchor had a teenaged apprentice who was the son of wealthy family. Malchor made him take a vow of silence, which he believed would help teach him the discipline needed for his studies of magic.
Circa late 1487 DR, Malchor was alive and competed with other archmages for the possession of the Lost Spell during a spellstorm, as well as informing his fellow "captive" archwizards that he currently was spending his efforts on securing the future of Faerûn, through the making of strong family ties.

He takes all items looted from Drizzt no matter which conversation option you choose and it doesn't seem that this interaction can be avoided. However, it is easy to sell the items on the black market before he confronts you - he will not take any gold or hurt you.
