Malphas was an elven nobleman with aspirations of kinghood. He entered a druidic order and fell in love with another elven druid, and the two of them hatched a plan to fulfill his ambitions. When other elven noblemen started dying and Malphas's involvement was determined, he intended to flee with his lover. Instead, she revealed herself to be a drow and mocked him for his naivete. He died of a broken heart and became a Vestige.

Malphas is also the name of a baatezu+noble. See Malphas (archdevil).
