Biography[edit | edit source]
Along with Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt and Dinah Stevens, Mallory underwent an identity spell wherein her consciousness was submerged and a new identity took its place; an identity that was unaware of her knowledge of witchcraft. 
By 2019, Mallory was living in Los Angeles, California, where she worked as the personal assistant to Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt, who was an obnoxious self-absorbed social media celebrity. Around the month of May or June an emergency text alert went out, warning Los Angelinos of a pending nuclear attack. Coco's parents arranged for a private plane at Santa Monica Airport that could help them evacuate the city. Coco and Mallory took the plane, along with Coco's hairstylist, Mister Gallant, and his grandmother, the aging starlet Evie Gallant.
The group ended up at Outpost Three, which was a fallout shelter designed by a group known as The Cooperative. The administration running the outpost employed a caste system between the elite (The Purples) and the worker class (The Greys). Mallory became a Grey and continued to service Coco, who was a Purple. 
Eighteen months into their exile, an official from the Cooperative named Michael Langdon came to Outpost Three to inform everyone that this was the last remaining outpost that has not yet fallen prey to marauding mutants and monsters, but it was only a matter of time, before it too would be compromised. A select few were going to be chosen to accompany him to a secret Sanctuary, which he said was impregnable and stocked with enough food and resources to last a decade. Mallory knew that she was not going to be one of the chosen. For those being left behind, Langdon offered them suicide pills as an alternative to being ravaged by marauding radioactive cannibals. 
A short time later, Michael conducted a personal interview with Mallory. He was attempting to suss out the dark nature of her character, which she claimed didn't exist. He didn't believe her though, and continued to poke and prod at her psychologically, putting Mallory on edge. She resisted him, and instinctively called upon her repressed magical abilities and threw Langdon against a wall.
On October 30th, 2021, the site leader of Outpost Three, Wilhemina Venable, hosted a Halloween party, which included a masquerade ball and a game of bobbing for apples. All of the survivors, Purple and Grey alike, participated in the affair. What they didn't know was that Venable and her trusted lieutenant Miriam Mead had poisoned all of the apples. Their plan was to kill everyone at the outpost, including Langdon, and then make their way to the secret sanctuary on their own. Every person who took a bite of an apple, including Mallory, began going into convulsions and ultimately died.
At the moment of their deaths, the witches Cordelia Goode, Myrtle Snow, and Madison Montgomery arrived at Outpost Three. Cordelia cast a spell that brought Coco, Mallory, and another witch named Dinah Stevens back from the dead. 
Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Pyrokinesis: Before awakening from the spell that made her forget who she was, she called upon her innate pyrokinetic talents to enlarge existing flames in a fireplace at Outpost Three.
- Telekinesis: When her consciousness was still submerged by an identity spell, Mallory managed to call upon her mystical aptitude of mind over matter to physically repel Michael Langdon who was frightening her.
