These two sisters are Misery's cousins, who, when both are together, cause a localized ice age. Despite their faults, Misery loves her cousins. They first appeared in Misery Loves Company. Later, they're seen in I'll Be Home For Misery and make a cameo appearance in Last Train To Gloomsville, but no speaking role.
Malady is the one character that is more disease-prone than her cousin, Misery. She broke her right arm. She apparently suffers from every known disease, ailment, illness, symptom and allergy almost simultaneously, and when asked about them, she runs through all the events and procedures that lead to one injury, which usually lasts hours until the conclusion. Spending time with her alone will cause a tremendous headache, as experienced by Poe.
Malaise suffers from narcolepsy and can often be seen lying on a couch or bed or even asleep on the floor randomly. She is accompanied by many creatures like a snake, spiders, an octopus, snails and butterflies which usually attach themselves to the full-body veil she wears. The pupils in her black eyes are red instead of white like Misery's. Spending time with her alone will lose steam, as experienced by Iris.
