Bio: Well when it comes the the runner known as Cajun this man is a real hard ass and yet he still has a warm side to him and is willing to give you the shirt off his back. He might seem like he is someone that can be a real bastard and that couldn’t be further from the truth as the Cajun is more like his eldest brother Michael and not like his brother Edgar that could’t give two damns about anyone besides himself.
It is a breath of fresh air to see a runner on this page that isn’t miserly, murderous and self centred, this man like his siblings was raised in a very strict household with hundreds of rules that where compulsory and had to followed or it was a trip out behind the woodshed with a leather strap and there fates where predetermined for them including who they where to marry; only Father Malone had any say and that was do to him decreeing at an early age that he wanted to join the priesthood. Otherwise they just had to obey or be disowned like Edgar was and the siblings didn’t want to suffer a fate like the second oldest so they just fell in line and allowed their parents to set the course of their life for them.
Well for the Cajun he would rebel initially once he was eighteen, but even his rebellion was limited as he didn’t have time to live life before it was off to the best colleges in the country and no longer where they allowed to venture off across the pond to attend better schools since Edgar ruined that opportunity for them by slapping his parents in the face and choose a life of service as a Butler over the predetermined future.
The Cajun would be groomed for politics and he would not have a choice and everything about his upbringing was groomed towards that goal including being forced to attend West Point against his will and working as a page for many United States Senators as an intern when not in school and he never knew what it was like to dress like a kid or teenager, he was within tailored clothing of a older conservative man as soon as he was thirteen and even before that he was being educated in etiquette and wearing dress shirts, trousers and polished shoes from the time he could walk.
This man would enter the Army as a commissioned officer and would reach the rank of Colonel before his father would allow him to retire seeing that a opening for the Senate was now available and the Cajun was expected to run and win and failure was not an option. Do to his strict upbringing he was a perfectionist and expected only the best from everyone around him, and he was expected to uphold his Catholic values at all times; so the Cajun would end up having a very large family himself and just have to accept that sex was not for pleasure but procreation and seeing he was married off at eighteen and a virgin, he was very active with his wife in the early days and from the records she was almost never not pregnant; and it was expected that he would be the household head and only supporter with his wife forbidden to work.
So for My Way Malone, this meant he had to work twice as hard as his other siblings that could escape the very large families if they wanted to, but all where expected to have five children and the first three had to be within the fist five years of marriage. Malone knew that Father Michael and Edgar would never have children do to Michael’s vows and Edgar’s cancer so the weight of their children would fall on him directly so Wilbur would end up having eighteen children seems like allot and it is, but Wilbur would be unlucky and have multiple twins and triplets do to the hormones he was taking to raise his testosterone levels and the drugs his wife was taking.
This large family was very rough on a officers salary and his family wouldn’t help support him financially, besides college and seeing he was in the Army the government would end up paying for his education and thus forcing him to stay in longer than he wanted and this was all part of his parents plan. While in the military he would take leaves of absence to attend college and he would go to Harvard Law School and as well Princeton where he would receive his masters and doctoral degree in political science all part of the plan for his future as a Senator.
The Cajun would end up working within the Judge Advocate Generals Office and would end up becoming a very successful attorney like his brother Jack Malone who as well worked in the JAG office until he transferred over to special forces. The Cajun was not allowed to enter the combat division as he was expected to advance his legal carrier and one day become a judge in the military and thats just what would happen. For Wilbur everything was going to plan and he was just following the orders of his parents and he knew it was compulsory and he had no choice and never wanted to disobey or question his fathers authority.
This would be how his life would go throughout his military carrier and and into his life in the civilian world. The Cajun would just follow orders and never question his parents in anyway, though this would all change when he would run for the open seat in the Senate and eventually win and begin his lengthy carrier as a Senator for the newly formed CAS (Confederate American States) as a Republican for Louisiana and this is where he will remain for many more years to come. Though for the Cajun his life in the public sector was just a beginning and he would have many more adventures to come. As a elected Senator for the CAS he would be at the forefront of many of the major policy changes that would plague the UCAS, he was the staunch supporter for the CAS to stay out of the Treaty of Denver and would bring policy to the floor in Richmond on a daily basis to keep the CAS out of the treaty and spoke out against the progressive movement considering it to have dire consequences for the south.
He would also be President Davis’s number one supporter and ever spoke ill of his President, this would make him very popular within the Conservative party and the Cajun would eventually become the leader of his party where he would remain till his retirement from the Senate. Malone would as well continue to grow his family and during his political days their wouldn’t be a time that his wife wouldn’t be pregnant and just like his parents he would end up having a very large Catholic family with ten children till the day of his accident when he would be rendered sterile after crashing his car while o holiday in New Orleans. Once he learned he could no longer sire children, he just gave up on sex and would focus all his attention on his work and family. The Cajun loved his wife and children, though he was strict about their public appearance do to being a popular senator he needed to maintain a very conservative public image and do to his sterility and impotence he would be able to dodge many sexual misconduct allegations that would try to derail this senators career and destroy his family life.
Why would the Cajun become a runner of the shadows, well technically he isn’t a runner this man is the appointed leader of the Cajun Clan and the head of the Cajun Mafia. He would end up running his family business and would end up competing with the Jamestowns and Krieghoffs for the top of the criminal world. Though the Cajuns are crazy so even the other families just leave the Malone’s alone seeing they are manly focused on the south and have their hands deep in the pockets of the Sons of the True Confederacy. As I said the Cajun is a good man and very charitable and that is 100% true he has a heart of gold and that is a rarity for a politician, lawyer and Don of a crime family; they broke the mold when they made the Cajun, though like most Cajuns avoid topics like politics, the Civil War both of them and Football and never double cross them or their anger will flare and all hell will break loose.
Malone raises his children and now grandchildren and great grandchildren with unfettered love and he has done his best to make sure they have their own life to live and not forcing them into the family empire and not forcing them to marry those that would be good for his political career or the family. He was forced into an arranged marriage and yet he loves his wife, he wishes that he had a choice, he also tries to shield his children from the criminal world of the shadows knowing that it is a very dangerous career path with dire consequences. The Cajun has to balance his deeply religious views and his obligations to both his family and the city of New Orleans where he now serves as the Mayor and has since his retirement from the Senate, New Orleans has no term limits for their Mayor as of the Southern Constitution and this has served Malone well seeing the people love their benevolent Mayor and keep electing him and as long as he lives up to his reputation he will keep being elected.
<<Mayor Wilbur “My Way” Malone after his reelection with his grand daughter Cynthia>>
Wilbur is totally committed to his family and after his bought with testicular and prostate cancer, he is now the second Malone to suffer from cancer and he has started a foundation to support those needing treatment seeing he doesn’t want others to suffer the embarrassment that he and his brother Edgar have had to endure as eunuchs do to the deadly aliment. This mayor is totally beloved by the people of New Orleans and is always hosting public events to bring the people together and he is the one behind the grill and cooking his traditional Louisiana meals. Being a Mayor he is always on the move and at many conferences throughout the CAS and UCAS and this is how he ended up planting his feet within Seattle and forming a bond with Mayor Krieghoff and former Mayor Hill. He enjoyed the change of scenery and seeing some of his family where now living in the Emerald City it was only a matter of time before he would purchase a home here and travel for the holidays when he wasn’t working. This also means the Cajun Mafia has taken an interest within Seattle and that is terrifying seeing they don’t deal well with the Italians, Irish and Russians that already claim Seattle as theirs and the Cajuns claim that America is theirs and the Europeans can vacate or suffer under their wrath.
The Cajun might not carry out the orders himself, but when it comes to business he has no problem crossing that line of good versus evil and giving the orders to an underling and sending a very brutal message. In Seattle he is considered a monster, but in the south they know him as the golden don and one that cares about everyone’s well being. After the last super storm that ravaged New Orleans Wilbur Malone personally donated over one million credits and over five million in supplies and aid to the people to help the city rebuild, where Seattle has not seen a dime of his money just his countless foot soldiers tearing up any opposing organised crime family. the Seattle Police Department doesn’t recognise the Cajun Mafia as a real threat to the city and won’t move on them. Though I would have to say this is probably do to his baby brother ADA Jack Malone being in the city and the Organised Crime Task Force is more focused on the Oriental Criminal Empires than the European and Domestic ones and would rather see them kill each other off than risk angering the Cajuns.
As I said Malone is a very nice man and even if you speak with him his slow drawl manner of speaking and his aqua eyes and low sitting glasses make him appear very approachable and grandfatherly versus the crime boss he really is. You can actually have a honest conversation with him and he like many of his kin will talk your ear off about anything, so best to avoid a conversation if you are on a tight schedule cause you will be late. He will also gladly buy you a hot meal or a cup of joe if needed and I have even heard Wilbur taking those that are down and out and buying them clothing for an interview and even setting them up in an apartment to get them off the street. Though be careful he is a Cajun and the Don of the Cajun Mafia so he might have alliterate motives within Seattle. In New Orleans his motives are pure. This man has two faces one the south sees and one Seattle sees so he might look like your grandfather don’t be fooled he is packing heat under his jacket and he is a physical adept of unknown power and hails from Louisiana where many of the lost arts can be found if you know where to look and have the credits to pay cause nothing is free in New Orleans.
In closing when it comes to the Cajun I have mixed feelings, he is one of the good guys, but when he steps foot in Seattle unless it’s on business he can be very brutal as he trying to establish the Cajun Mafia here in the Pacific Northwest and he has a deadly alliance with the Krieghoffs seeing both family heads are Mayors and seem to get along swimmingly. They share the same motives and goals and as long as they don’t scuff each others oxfords this city could better for it, though if they step on each others toes the Cajuns and Krieghoff alliance could turn bloody quickly and that means for the people of Seattle yet something else for us to fear and be concerned about. Best to treat Wilbur Malone with the utmost respect seeing he has earned his title of the Honourable Wilbur Malone and he lives up to the motto of “My way or the Highway.”
