Malcolm’s very first interaction with the Pyro. He entered the room, sat across the table from Malcolm, and stated:

“I’ll bet your favorite movie is Fight Club.”

He was right.


The Pyro is an undercover agent placed into the mental health facility with Malcolm. His sole purpose is to set fires, just to observe how Malcolm puts them out.

He was placed there to obtain a confession from Malcolm.


Last night I saw that beauty queen

Watched her paint her face on

I want to be that magazine

That she bases life on

I want to waste her monthly blood

Want to get some on my love

Want to get some gasoline

And burn the house down

— from Seether - “Gasoline”


The Pyro will also be the Hype Man for a nationwide musical tour by bus.
