Being the highest rank of malboro, and wearing a crown to prove it. It is still unknown how it came to wear its crown, or who, indeed, made it. There is a rumor which claims that, should a man slay it and put on its crown, he will be at once transformed into a malboro king. Should this be true, it could very well mean that the crown is cursed with the vilest of magicks, and the beast that wears it was once was a man.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

"Malboro" may derive from the Japanese onomatopoeia boro, the sound of an upset stomach. The word mal, means something bad or illness. The name could also be a reference to Marlboro Cigarettes, since the creatures often spew horrid fumes.
