Maloker was an Old One considered "the most powerful vampire"[1] and responsible for the creation of the first one.[2]



When humans started using magic against the Old Ones to lock them in the Deeper Well, Maloker attempted to build an army to fight back against humans, and he created vampires to do so.[1] He was the last Old Ones to walk the Earth before he was sealed in a sarcophagus, being among those too powerful to be banished.[3]


During the end of magic, Simone Doffler awoke Maloker to make herself into a Slaypire[2] without becoming a mindless zompire.[4] Maloker killed most of the Magic Council attempting to stop him, but the Old One perished shortly thereafter in the explosion of when the new Seed of Wonder took root.[5] Because the most powerful Old Ones could never be completely eradicated, Maloker's essence lived on even though his corporeal body was destroyed.[1]

Maloker returned once again into being when Xander wrote into the Vampyr that "Dracula became the most powerful vampire of all," causing Dracula to transform into Maloker, with his persona being overwritten by that of the Old One's.[1] Taking to the streets of San Francisco, a giant Dawn staked Maloker into a blessed building.[6]

The Old One turned to dust and Dracula reassembled himself in his original form, only to immediately start transforming again. Xander wrote into the Vampyr book that Dracula was able to fight off Maloker using his willpower, barring Maloker from coming into existence through Dracula.[6]

Like most Old Ones, Maloker was a massive demon. He had a bat-like appearance, with pointed ears and loose, wing-like folds of skin connecting his arms and body. He had sharp fangs and claws, a crest-like protrusion on the back of his head, and charcoal or gray fur covering most of his body.[6]

Being the progenitor of vampires, Maloker shared a number of weaknesses with them: sacred objects, fire, and stakes, but each would have to be big enough to account for his scale to be functional. It was possible to stake him with a sacred object, upon which his body would turn to dust.[6]
