Traded vigor and soul for power. Care to make a deal?
Malok was once a physically imposing and majestic dragon, soaring over the Northern Prairies with verve and confidence. As time marched on however and humans built their cities and fortresses and discovered more of the magical arts, Malok felt left behind. Weak. Powerlessness. It was then that the whispers in its dreams began, and in time Malok shriveled and grew small, as it traded ever-more of its physical form and spiritual essence in exchange for magical might. But Malok made a deal with things from the Void, and such entities are known for taking more than is bargained for...

Malok is a sinister sorcerer who channels dark magic to destroy its foes. The dragon’s main offensive spell is Soul Spike, which heavily damages a target tower. Though Soul Spike doesn’t cost any rage, it hurts Malok whenever the deadly projectile is primed. This self-inflicted damage can add up quickly, so be careful with how zealously you dish out destruction.
Malok’s main defensive spell is Dark Bargain, which grants Malok an invincible shield and immunity to mage tower supershots for a short duration. When Dark Bargain expires, healing marks are applied to all nearby towers, which restore a moderate amount of health when triggered. Dark Bargain naturally combos with Soul Spike: spend health to destroy towers and then regain that health by triggering the marks. Dark Bargain can be disrupted by Ice Flaks, Howitzers, and cannon towers, so one must be careful not to overcommit to the shield. Failing to apply Dark Bargain’s healing marks may leave the dragon without enough health to safely cast Soul Spike.
Malok’s next spell is Shadow Blast, which dodges all incoming projectiles and damages nearby towers. Shadow Blast is Malok’s most reliable way of avoiding rage drain effects, though the spell can also dish out some serious damage. Note that red mage towers only block Shadow Blast’s damage; the spell’s dodge mechanic will work even in the presence of a red mage tower.
Malok’s final spell is Sacrifice, which converts a portion of the dragon’s HP into rage. Sacrifice allows Malok to recover from rage-drain effects, and otherwise ensure that the dragon can always cast Dark Bargain and Shadow Blast.
