Aye.

He is the god of curses and the spurned. Apparently many orcs worship him as their god-king, and his statue is pretty cool

Other Daedra might not consider him "One of the gang" due his origins, but for all intents and purposes he's considered a Daedric Prince.

I think just like the hero of kvatch, who became the new prince of madness? (theory anyways)

Somewhat different. Malacath was supposedly once the Aldmeri hero Trinimac who was eaten and corrupted by Boethia, being turned into the being Malacath that for all intents and purposes, took up the role of a Daedric Prince despite not being one of the original spirits who spurned involvement in creation.

The CoC becoming Sheogorath's a little different I believe. More along the lines of the CoC mantling Sheogorath's power, role and responsibilities until they for all intents and purposes are Sheogorath.

That being said, I easily imagine someone from the Bethesda Lore forum popping in and laughing at my likely incorrectness. =p

Boethia didn't just corrupt Trinimac, he swallowed him whole and then spat him back out as a daedra, that's what makes it so cool.

maybe it's a metaphor, then again this is the elder scrolls we are talking about.

Favorite tale of Malacath... Sixteen Accords of Madness, v. XII

Malacath just can't win. Nor can his followers :(

I sort of thought he came out ... the other end ...

Yes, I know. I’m too literal minded.
