Malvel, the evil wizard, is the main villain of the Beast Quest series.
He is an old man wearing a hooded cloak.
Malvel is very strong. He can attack by shooting beams of magic, using spells, and is very cunning. He can also send visions of himself to others in faraway places.
In Beast Quest series one, Malvel cast a spell that made the good beasts of Avantia evil. This caused them to hurt the kingdom of Avantia instead of protecting them. Tom frees them one by one with the help of Elenna, Storm the horse, and Silver the wolf. In series two, seeking revenge, he creates his own beasts, and unleashes them to steal the Golden Armour, which is the most precious armour in the kingdom. It gives increased physical and mental powers to the wearer.
