Doctor Malvazar is an anthropomorphic ape.
Formerly a successful archeologist, Doctor Malvazar has always harbored ambitions of world domination. At an unspecified point in time, he became Master #7 of the Horde of the Violet Hare, a sect-like organization focused on collecting powerful ancient technology for the purpose of eventual world domination. Malvazar was flanked by a monkey, Lancelot, who kept imitating his every move, to his annoyance.
In 2005, this put him on the track of the Colossus of Rhodes. Believing the Colossus to have been destroyed, he found the plans for it and built a war-focused replica, dubbed the Shadow Colossus. However, he was headed off by Mickey Mouse, Eurasia Toft and Goofy, and the Shadow Colossus was destroyed by the actual, not-at-all-destroyed Colossus of Rhodes. Though the Horde's flagship was sunk in the process, Malvazar managed to escape, leaving Lancelot behind.
