Hailing from Imiron, Kulik Molcomb was a Shard operative. He had a reputation for being cautious to the point of paranoia.
Molcomb was a veteran of Tochi, Ottomas, and the Perseus conflict, most notably taking part in the seemingly impossible Liberation of Ressingale.
Molcomb had always been able to hold large quantities of alcohol, but following the traumatic experience of Ressingale he developed a stimulant addiction.
At the time of his death on Low Cerin, Molcomb had foolishly separated from his counterpart — Rupus Dyne — in order to save time. He was therefore without his first line of defence when he was ambushed by Maber Castigon. Molcomb ended up trapped on the roof of an apartment block, and was shot in the face (→SFTD).
Castigon recalled Molcomb briefly while visiting a tavern on Serrofus Major (→LOTD).
While he was on Fort Sol, waiting to board the ICS Disputer, Elm Caden was approached by Rupus Dyne who requested that he be allowed to take Rendir Throam's place as Caden's counterpart. Caden was less than impressed, and suggested that Dyne had become deskilled while looking after Molcomb. It was Caden's assertion that CAGA and the Imperial Combine had put Molcomb "out to pasture', since he could no longer be relied upon to carry out missions of any real value (→TRD).
