Aha! Noone ventures into our forest without our leave Sir Knight! And I don't know whether your gold or your weapons will be enough to pay for your safe passage!
Malio is the first Brigand that Hype encounters on his quest. Malio wanted to loot Hype of his weapons and gold and kill him while doing so. However he underestimated Hype and was killed by the brave knight in the conflict.
Malio was an aggresive character clearly not wanting Hype to live regardless if he gave him what he wanted or not, Malio fought with throwing knives where he attempted to defeat Hype at distance.
