Malcolm Content 🌿

No, that's not my real name, but it's close enough it might as well be. Obviously, I answer to Mal.



The malcontent is a character type that often appeared in early modern drama. The character is discontented with the social structure and other characters in the play, and is often an outsider who observes and comments on the action, and may even acknowledge they are in a play. Shakespeare's Richard III, Iago in Othello, and Jaques in As You Like It are typical malcontents.
