Benj Malthus was a trueborn warrior from Clan Jade Falcon. Hailing from the same blood heritage as Taman Malthus hi is a large warrior nearly elemental size with brown hair and blue eyes and a booming voice, he sounds more like an Elemental than the MechWarrior he is. He does boast some of the genes the Clans use for their battle-armored soldiers, but he was bred instead for the keen reflexes of a MechWarrior.
Benj refuses to acknowledge him as a hero to the Clan and is indeed disgusted by Taman's storied friendship with the Spheroid hero, Kai Allard-Liao. He is a known to expose neo-Crusader philosophies and believes that any warrior, past or present, who respects the filthy surats of the Inner Sphere is beneath all respect and admiration.
While unblooded, he was assigned to a unit in Zeta Galaxy when Clan Wolf staged a massive Trial of Possession for the world of Colmar in early 3131, Benj scored two BattleMech kills and destroyed two squads of infantry during that Trial with his particular Gyrfalcon, a performance that qualified him for a sponsor in a Trial of Bloodright which he won.
