Malice shows up in the battle during the Invasion, saving Javelin's life as a BombWing tries to kill the prince with a bomb. Malice takes the bomb and it explodes, blowing both of them away. Malice looks up weakly at his friend, and whispers goodbye before closing his eyes for the last time.
Malice appears to act tough, but he is really fiercely loyal to his friends. His family abandoned him at a young age, so he must be strong and tough to stay in the tribe and prevent himself from being exiled.
