Born to Isabelle Beaufort late in life after long since assuming she could not have children.Malachai felt the burden of being the only blood heir to the Beauforts. After A-levels he joined the military as a way of sidestepping the pressure of his family name.
He served many years in the Marines; he excelled in warfare but lacked ambition.
In the summer of 2016, while on leave, he was summoned to a stately home in Scotland where he discovered that his parents were deeply wrapped up in a secret society and engaging in ritual magic.
After meeting Edward Roper he helped disrupt the ritual and take some of the victims of the ceremony.
They (sister, Edward and Malachai) lived somewhat on the run as the world seemed to completely fall apart.
He became a trusted second to Edward who formed a resistance to the new order.
