MALACODA

***

The devil in charge

Wants to harm Virgil but can’t

Virgil does God’s work

***

NOTE: Virgil tells Dante to hide until he can talk to the devils. He talks to their leader, Malacoda, and tells him that he is on a mission from God. Malacoda is disappointed because he knows he can’t harm Virgil or Dante. He would prefer to stab them with his pitchfork.
