  • ADHD: Like all demigods, Malcolm possesses inborn supernatural battle reflexes and senses that he uses to analyze the fighting style of his opponent.
  • Dyslexia: His brain is "hardwired" for Ancient Greek instead of modern languages.

  • He is very knowledgeable in architecture, history and Greek myths, which is very useful in journeys and battles.
  • He is also a master strategist.
  • He is skilled in armed and hand-to-hand combat and was trained during his stay at Camp Half-Blood. He seems to prefer the grappling hook as a weapon.
  • He is extremely intelligent, wise, and clever.
  • Due to the fact that he is a son of Athena, he is accomplished at arts and crafts.


  • Malcolm seems to be the first person to notice Annabeth and Percy's feelings for each other.
  • Aside from Annabeth, Malcolm is the only named Athena camper.
