He's trying to save his wife but then doesn't know that that the powers he need might destroy the spiral. He does not want to destroy the spiral!

Malistaire's wife died. That, I think, is a reason.

well from all the youtube videos i watched i have come to one conclusion. Malistaire is not trying to desrtoy wizard city. he is looking for information there. unfortonately he finds it and moves to krokotopia to get the krokonomicon. later you find out the krokonomicon was taken to marleybone so you travel there. i'm not sure what happens in between but you eventually make it to dragonspyre. there malistaire is trying to awaken the dragon titan to bring sylvia drake back to life. he brought the bad thing to w. city to cause panic so they won't realize what he is really doing. Also the krokonomicon is the greatest source of knowledge one life and death magic and as you probaly know sylvia was a life wizard.

You have to stop him cause what if the Dragon Titan Destroys him and the Spiral?And I doubt he really wants to destroy the Spiral.I think he wants to take over the Spiral.

The big reason why Malistaire basically wants to get rid of the Spiral is because of the death of his wife, Sylvia Drake. In the storyline quest of Wizard City, you talk to an old woman in Olde Town who tells you about her. She says that Sylvia used to be the life teacher, and they were a happy married couple. :) But then there was a time when Sylvia got a type of illness and died of it. Saddening :( :( :( . Then the woman said that Malistaire couldn't stand letting her go, so his rage grew and his mind started to turn into a killing machine. Well, not like that, I mean. But, he couldn't stand the thought of losing his wife. Here was his face a few days during his destruction. Creepy!

In my opinion, Malistaire (former death teacher) isn't really going to destroy wizard city; he's trying to make it harder for wizard city.

I mean Malistaire was always noted as one of the most famous boss and subject in the game .... so if he really is trying to destroy wizard city, his only excuse would be that he's evil.
It makes sense that he would just do it because he's evil and he wants to do it. (also malistaire is dead when you finish dragonspyre)

Wizard City is not the only world. Once you have reached a certain lvl you can keep moving on in different worlds, If you are a member. When you are in a world called DragonSpyre you will learn why he wants revenge. You said you didn't want it spoiled so i won't tell you but i am warning you Dragon Spyre is a long way away. Here is a list of worlds you will enter and save. Wizard City, Krokatopia, MarlyBone, Mooshu, Dragonspyre, Celestia, Zafaria. There you go! Enjoy playing and keep working. This is an amazing game.

Malistaire does not wish to solely destroy Wizard City; as a matter of fact, Wizard City holds too many memories of his former life. Plus, even he knows destroying the home place of all Wizards would be an ignorant decision. He only seeks to corrupt the Spiral enough for it to become his, both physically and spiritually. I do not fully understand the story behind the awakening of the Dragon Titan, but all I know is that he wants to show the Spiral and especially Ambrose himself, why he is the way he is. He wants to gain enough power so he could create his own personal army of the Undead and essentially, rule over all known reaches of the Spiral.

If he had corrupted the Spiral enough, I presume he would have sent advanced Undead creatures to seek out and discover hidden artifacts and even secret worlds. He would have personally eliminated Ambrose and the other headmasters; maybe keeping and corrupting his brother Cyrus. He would have discovered the Astral magics and corrupted them to create his own personal and powerful type of magic of which no other can defeat or shield against: Eclipse magic. He would have taken Wizards from all over the Spiral to make them his own personal warriors. He might have even created new schools after discovering more and more secrets.

However, Malistaire may not be the only "Bad" guy out there. Eventually, he would encountered Morganthe. They would have seen each other as a threat; realized each other's power and knew the amount of risk it would be to live in the same Spiral. Eventually, we would have seen an all out war between the Umbra Forces and The Undead Army. Both Morganthe and Malistaire may be of equal power. Morganthe came from who knows where, probably from a deep dark part of the Spiral where there are more secrets and abilities only SHE knows about, while Malistaire knows things only HE knows about. Almost like the Northern and Southern hemispheres meeting for the first time.

The amount of destruction and wild magic roaming around would be Chaotic...


Wow, that's pretty epic ..... a huge all out war would've been kinda awesome (and scary :? )

Basically, after Sylvia Drake is killed, Malistaire seeks to use the Krokonomican that holds the secrets to LIfe and Death Magics, but needs the help of Meowiarty to get it. Once he gets it he has to request the Emporer of Mooshu for the key to Dragonspyre. When the Emporer refuses, Malistaire nearly kills him and the key and then destroys Dragonspyre because no one approves of hips actions, with the Storm Titan's aid.

Before the final battle in the crown of fire atop a volcano, Cyrus uses Sylvia to convince Malistaire of stopping his wreck less destruction to avenge her death. Only when he is dead, does he realize that he was wrong in wreaking havoc on the worlds in Malistaire quest line.

He misses his wife Sylvia. when you face him in Dragonspyre, he says to Sylvia that all he wanted to do was to bring her back and to try to gain power to reverse her death.

Malistaire Drake had a wife named Sylvia. She got sick and died. He loved her so much that he turned evil trying to bring her back. So he conquered Wizard City, krokotopia, Marleybone, MooShu and Dragonspyre in search of a way to bring his wife back. In the final battle of Dragonspyre there is a long dramatic cutscene with Malistaire, Cyrus (his brother and the Myth professer) and the ghost of Sylvia Drake. If I say anymore I might spoil it.

I don't think he is trying to destroy the spiral, he was just causing all of that trouble to get something so he could revive her wife.

my theory is that since he uses that strong dragon thing to bring sylvia back from the dead it might have to destroy a few things to make the power to bring her back .... and he really doesn't want to destroy anything it is just that we get in his path and makes him anger and send his minions to keep us slowed down. but also we are trying to keep him alive so he doesn't get killed by the strong magic of the dragon. so the gist of the game is to save malistare or at least until the end of dragonspyre

x sigh x Malistaire is mad and sad about having his wife die, Sylvia, former life school teacher, (thats why you'll do the Sylvia drake quest earlier in the game), and he wants to like take over the dragon titan, and have his wife come back to life so he can take over the spiral with her.
He/She is totally right
