Lord Creon Malvinius was a Marathine nobleman who lived during the reign of Claudius Cordelius.  He took Silas Altamont as a lover, then abandoned him to marry Lisette Malvinia.


Malvinius appears in a story Mildmay tells in the introduction to Mélusine.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Creon comes from the Greek Kreōn "ruler."  In Greek mythology, Creon was the ruler of Thebes, brother of Jocasta, and uncle to Antigone.
  • Malvinius is likely a Latinized masculine form of the name Malvina, which was an 18th-century creation likely intended to mean "smooth brow" in Gaelic.
