|Taken Name||Sean the King|
Sean Mackin is a character in Skulduggery Pleasant: Kingdom of the Wicked. He, along with his high-school friends Kitana Kellaway, Doran Purcell and Elsie O'Brien, are given incredibly powerful magic from Argeddion, as a test to begin giving all mortals in the world magic.
Sean and his friends go out regularly to practice their magic. At first, they just have fun discovering new powers they can do, but later become dangerous and seek revenge on everyone who has wronged them in the past. Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are at the crime scene of the murder of Doran's brother, who Doran dismembered. Valkyrie goes in to talk to Doran, and he pretends to be distressed, but smirks. Valkyrie knows instantly that he is the killer, so skulduggery and her follow him to a cafe' where they confront the group, which results in a fight that nearly kills both Skulduggery and Valkyrie, but they manage to escape.
Sean tags along with the group because he is enticed by Kitana's good looks and wants to impress her - as he admits himself, "I almost killed you because Kitana was pretty". Sean doesn't seem as enthusiastic about murdering as Kitana and Doran do - he takes orders from Kitana but often seems hesitant and he goes pale and silent when Doran kills Tommy whilst the other two are laughing. Elsie believes that he is a good person however it's evident that he is not.
