|Quest NPC?||The Slug Menace|
|A fresh-faced and innocent priest.|
Brother Maledict is a priest who worships Saradomin in Witchaven and plays a role in the quest The Slug Menace. Like all generic villagers in Witchaven, he falls under the mind-controlling properties of the sea slugs during The Slug Menace.
During the Slug Menace quest he is given a welcome to the 'family' by a unknown character, possibly Mayor Eustace Hobb and becomes possessed by the sea slugs. He disappears after the quest along with Col. Jake O'Niall and Mayor Eustace Hobb.
- Maledicts are evil sayings or doomsayings, which is ironic since Brother Maledict worships Saradomin.
- Maledict derives from the word "benedict", meaning "good blessings", in which "bene" means "good", deriving from Italian. In Italian, "male" means "bad", so maledict literally means "bad blessings".
- The scarf around his neck gets a gold trim when he is possessed.
