Lord Malgath is a fel orc encountered in the Assault on Violet Hold. During the first two stages of the dungeon, he periodically appears—floating above the ground and protected by a fel barrier—to open portals for Burning Legion forces. At the end of the first two stages, he opens a random prison cell containing one of the dungeon's bosses while also introducing the boss with a short description. At the end of the third stage, he lands in the center of the hold to personally attack the players. Upon his death, the final boss of the instance—either Fel Lord Betrug or Sael'orn—spawns.

- I expected more from these prisoners. If they cannot break you, then I will.
- Enough! These prisoners are useless. As the old saying goes: "If you want to destroy a floating city the right way, you have to do it yourself."
