A dwarf with animal features from the land of Tribalibot (India). He was the brother of Cundrie la Surziere.

Queen Secundille of Tribalibot sent Malcreatiure and Cundrie to King Anfortas (Wolfram’s Fisher King) as a gift, and Anfortas gave him to Duchess Orgeluse of Logres (Orguelleuse) as a squire.

Gawain was forced to ride Malcreatiure’s nag for a while after his own horse was stolen.
