The ability to release the malevolent aspects and villainous essence of others. Opposite to Benevolence Release.

Also Called

  • Host of Malevolence
  • Infecting Evilness
  • Infectious Evil
  • Inner Evil Release


The user can release the malevolent aspects and villainous essence of another being and essentially "corrupt" them by having them give in to their most malevolent desires. The user brings out the worst in sentient beings and can turn them into malevolent beings.




  • User may have more difficulty affecting beings with a high enough level of benevolent essence.
  • Emotionless beings may be unaffected to a limited degree as negative emotions must be tapped into to release malevolence.
