Judge Malleous McMorbidly
#D3 in my Macabre McMorbidly Family Portrait Series
The last patriarch recorded in the family records. He was the husband of Dame Violenta and father to Squire Drummel and Goronymous. He handed down the highest number of death sentences in the history of the Perilous Downs courthouse. If there was ever a “hung” jury, you could be sure he’d ordered the hanging.
The McMorbidly Family Portraits were discovered in a battered and moldy sealed trunk, which had somehow wound up below the root system of a huge black tree on the grounds of McMorbidly Manor (Now in Ruins). With each photo was a mysterious description written in jittery script by persons unknown. The portraits and paper were dated back to the mid to late 1800's. Who was the artist/photographer? How had history forgotten such an infamous and lengthy family legacy? We may never know but pay close attention as each family member and their stories from all their past generations are revealed!
