Mollymauk Tealeaf is a fictional character played by Taliesin Jaffe on a popular D&D web series Critical Role at the beginning of Campaign 2. Even though he was only briefly part of The Mighty Nein, he had a lot of impact on the other characters, most notable Beauregard Lionett.


There was initial confusion in fandom, where fans weren't sure what pronouns applied to Molly.

Slash ships include Mollymauk/Caleb

In game, Molly didn't remember anything from his past, leaving fans to believe that The Mighty Nein could still stumble onto pieces of his backstory. Some even believe that M9 could meet Molly alive, not remembering his past as Mollymauk.

Due to incredibly colorful outfit and general look, Molly is a favorite when it comes to cosplay and fanart



  • Carry It Until We Die by starkraving - Mollymauk Tealeaf wakes up in a grave by the road ten years after he died. Things have gone a bit wrong since then and he might be the only one who can set things right… since it’s the Mighty Nein themselves who’ve gone wrong. AU: Where Molly comes back to yell at his super-powered Level 20 friends.
  • Five Soda Maximum by chaya - Someone asked for: High school AU with Molly and Caleb, each wishing they had the guts to ask the other to prom. And you know what? Sometimes I'm going to write perfectly canon things, and sometimes I'm going to write the ridiculous things that make people happy. So here we are.





  • It’s time to be sad about Mollymauk Tealeaf again!, Archived version - So there’s a line in Episode 13 that I’ve referenced once or twice in fic. It’s when Molly is taken as a hostage by the Xhorhasian he’s just charmed: “And boy, I’ve got to tell you that you are really overestimating their fondness for me right now.”
  • My Name Is Molly - Meta - Guilt Is For Mortals, Archived version - I just want to talk a little bit about the fascinating use Taliesin puts the names of his characters to, and what they mean. I’ve waffled about Percy before in this vein (which you can read here if you have any interest) but it’s equally interesting, if not more so, with Molly.
