Malachite is a semi-immortal, fairy-like extraterrestrial being who is the former prince of the Alaecor kingdom, Alaecolus. He is the husband of Scipia and an ally of the King of the Solunar Kingdom, Selyf, where he regularly cooperates with him in accomplishing their ostensible goal in restoring peace to PokéPlitRule. Malachite additionally desires to reclaim his homeland and eliminate both Kieron and Xydkos.
Physical Appearance Edit
Malachite is a lean, light-complexioned Alaecor that is tall in stature, being the tallest of his species. He has aqua eyes and shoulder length, light blond hair that is tied back in a low ponytail. Malachite wears a peculiar nature-themed outfit—originating from his homeworld—that changes in color throughout the seasons. He has a second form that has yet to been seen.
As a child, Malachite lived peacefully at the Palace of Alaecolous; he was the only child of King Malte and a child prodigy greatly admired by all Alaecor. While he did not have any siblings, Malachite had five cousins, four of which he often spent time with. Malachite was closest to his oldest cousin, Hemi, and because of this, she was chosen as his future bride by his parents. At the age of ten, Malachite was proclaimed as the most powerful Alaecor by his father and was recognized as an adult.
A year before his wedding, at twelve years of age, Malachite had evacuated from his planet with his fiancée and youngest cousin, Zeridite, after their homeland was invaded by the Exytherx. During their escape, Malachite was separated from Hemi and had no choice but to flee with Zeridite without her. Malachite had eventually arrived at the sanctuary—the Solunar Kingdom—he was previously instructed to depart for by his father and has been residing there since then.
Three years later, Malachite had encountered Lior while gathering information on the Exytherx. Aware of who Malachite was, Lior had befriended him and assisted him in his mission prior to escorting him to Amorfis, where Malachite was subsequently reunited with Hemi. After meeting with Cyra and Kathremos, Malachite had returned to the Solunar Kingdom with Hemi. Unbeknownst to Hemi, Malachite had stayed in contact with the Amura and occasionally visited them. As time passed, Hemi had fallen in love with Selyf; realizing her affection for Selyf, Malachite had broken off his engagement to Hemi so that she could be with him.
Shortly before his 20th birthday, Malachite formed an alliance with Kathremos and promised to assist him in eliminating Kieron. He additionally complied with Selyf's request in protecting Scipia after discovering that the Exytherx were targeting her along with the six sages. Before Zophos appeared, Malachite acted as Scipia's bodyguard and protected her at all times as well as assisted her and her friends in their objective of restoring peace to PokéPlitRule. He instantly became interested in Scipia when she displayed no affection for him like previous girls and was attracted to her benevolent and selfless personality. When Zophos came, Malachite distanced himself from Scipia, watching over her from afar while still travelling with the Knights of PokéPlitRule and supporting them in combat against their foes.
Subsequent to Kosvios's demise, Malachite arrived at Scipia's location before Zophos and had quickly taken her and Jake to the Forest Temple to heal her injuries. While alone with Scipia, Malachite had confessed his love to her previous to asking her hand in marriage. She kept declining until he claimed that he had the power to liberate Stygi from Xydkos. After speaking with Scipia, Malachite left her alone with Sarka and Elvar to notify Kathremos about the engagement and buy new clothing for Scipia since her outfit was ruined in battle. While Malachite was absent, Zophos had invaded the Forest Temple and murdered Sarka after Elvar fled with Jake before taking Scipia to Kieron's mansion to recuperate.
As Scipia was travelling to Water Land with Scirwode, Malachite had secretly appeared with Lior before altering the landscape into a dense, foggy forest. Lior had quickly knocked out Scipia and masqueraded as her without Scirwode's knowledge. Lior accompanied Scirwode in Scipia's place while Malachite took the real Scipia to an underground cavern at Amorfis. Once Scipia finished speaking with Kathremos, Malachite spent time with her alone as he wishes to strengthen his bond with her and eventually, win her affection.
On January 11th, Malachite and Scipia had their wedding at the Solunar Kingdom.
Malachite is a cordial, easygoing and optimistic nature-lover who enjoys gardening and helping people that seek his aid. When he was younger, he received much attention from his people due to his status as the Prince of the Alaecor Kingdom, and was popular with the girls from his kingdom as they were captivated by his beauty and chivalrous behavior. As a consequence of this, Malachite grew to dislike his popularity and was uninterested in any woman whose heart he unintentionally won. A talented and powerful warrior, Malachite is capable of controlling nature itself. As a pacifist, however, Malachite prefers to avoid violence, and thus, while he possesses a frightening and catastrophic power, he refrains from utilizing it, but will exercise this power if necessary or under certain circumstances.
Self-confident, intuitive, and intelligent, Malachite always maintains his composure; he is never fazed by any situation and has yet to exhibit an emotion aside from happiness which baffles several characters, and therefore, appears rather suspicious. Additionally, Malachite has demonstrated to be a manipulative individual as he was able to dragoon Scipia into marrying him by revealing that he had the power to extract Xydkos from Stygi without harming him. While in the presence of fiends, males in particular, Malachite may come across as condescending and conceited due to his detestation for villains. He firmly believes that all villains are heartless monsters and are undeserving of mercy. Malachite's love for Scipia is far greater than his hatred for villains, though; he is willing to spare certain adversaries for Scipia's sake unless if a member of her family requests for him to eradicate the enemy.

Unlike Zophos, Malachite is manipulative and desired for Scipia not only to join forces with him, but to be his wife as well. Believing that she'd eventually affiliate with Kieron if he did not take action, Malachite coerced Scipia into marrying him. Zophos, on the other hand, is very considerate of Scipia's feelings and allows her to make her own decisions as he is averse to pressuring her into doing anything she's against.
