Fans of the famous RPG game Dungeons and Dragons should know a lot about the show Critical Role. The show is mostly streamed on Twitch and shows how great role-playing games can be. “A bunch of nerdy-ass voice actors playing Dungeons and Dragons,” the show’s intro says, and that’s exactly what it is.
The Mighty Nein is an adventuring group that has been called “adventuring mercenary assholes” by the show Critical Role. In the second campaign of Critical Role, the main character is this group of adventurers. They have a bad habit of sticking their heads into almost every important thing going on in the world of the game. Even though they saved the land and were heroes, they don’t get as much credit as they should for all they did.
They recently got a fatal blow and lost one of their members, which has made the Critical Role community very sad. Mollymauk Tealeaf, who had been with the company for a long time, died when a rescue mission went wrong. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Who is Mollymauk?
Mollymauk Tealeaf is a Tiefling, which is a race known for having big horns on their heads. Molly is the same way. Molly was a blood hunter who used Hemocraft, a rare type of magic, to help him fight. He had been in the Mighty Nein for a long time and got along well with the other members. He was known for being strange, and his personality was said to be like a “real and metaphorical peacock.” He was always making up lies and spreading them, whether or not anyone believed them.
As a Lavender Tiefling with crimson-red eyes, he looked and dressed in a very extravagant way. He was also very sure of himself and took great pride in the fact that he lived an odd life. It turned out that his gender was not fixed, which fit him perfectly.
Mollymauk Tealeaf was played by Taliesin Jaffe.
What Episode Does Mollymauk Die in Critical Role?
In the twenty-sixth episode of Critical Role’s second campaign, called “Found & Lost,” Jester, Fjord, and Yasha are missing when the group wakes up. After looking into it, they found out that the kidnapping was done by a dangerous group of slavers called the Iron Shepherds.
Mollymauk died during the fight between The Mighty Nein and the Iron Shepherds. The leader of the Iron Shepherds, Lorenzo, killed him. Molly tried to make Lorenzo weaker by giving him a power called Blood Maledict. But, unfortunately, this power of his didn’t work right and knocked Molly out. This gave Lorenzo the chance to give Mollymauk a fatal blow and end his life.
Lorenzo asked Molly, “What are your last words?” as a joke right before he killed her. In response, Molly spat blood in Lorenzo’s face. Lorenzo killed Molly right away by twisting his glaive into him.
Fans and players are shocked by this event because this is the first time in the show’s history that a major character has died, and because the death is permanent, a lot of fans are sad about the character’s death. Even to the point where the show’s host, DM Matthew Mercer, took to Twitter to apologise to the fans who were upset.
“I appreciate the help, and judging by the talk, a lot of people hate me all of a sudden. That’s alright. I’ll take the blows and keep going. Our story is about bravery and finding hope in a dark world. Many of us need this story. One that goes in ways I didn’t expect and that I believe in.
“I really care about my team. I keep in touch with them all the time. We always trust each other, and we trust each other. It’s the nature of the game, and not every end is written. If this one moment was enough to make you stop trusting me, I’m sorry. Genuinely.
“However, it’s a sad part of a lively story. So much is still to come. We are getting ready for the worst because it’s good for us. I hope you will still want to be with us after the stages of grief have passed. If not, I hope you have luck and a safe trip. <3”
We definitely said goodbye to Mollymauk, but a shocking turn of events shows us that Mollymauk’s body has come back to life as a new person named Kingsley Tealeaf. This isn’t really a surprise, since Mollymauk was a persona made from pieces of Lucien’s soul, who was the leader of the Tombtakers.
