Stewart was educated at Bristol Grammar School, one of Bristol's leading private schools, and was in the same year as fellow musician Nick Sheppard. Stewart began his music career in 1977 as a founder of The Pop Group, a band whose sonic experimentation, political conviction, and willingness to collaborate laid the foundations for his later work. The Pop Group split in 1981, with Stewart and two other members heading off to London to hook up with the emerging On-U Sound "conspiracy of outsiders" as part of the New Age Steppers. On-U became a focal point of a diverse set of networks – punks, reggae players from both the UK and Jamaica and free-jazzers. His first post-Pop Group release was as 'Mouth 2', the 1982 single "Who's Hot". Two releases followed with On-U associates under the name 'Mark Stewart & The Maffia' – the Jerusalem EP in 1983, and the 1983 album Learning to Cope with Cowardice. Stewart has since made several albums under his own name as well as collaborating with arti...

- Cameos in Other Mods
Tricky is a green-skinned zombie with curled, reddish orange clown hair. He wears a grey cloak and a dull blue ruff with light blue orbs and a matching pair of dull blue shoes. In his first song, he wears a metal hockey mask which covers his face. During his 2nd song, he goes unmasked, revealing his rounded teeth, and lack of skin on his mandible, a common trait shared with zombies in the Madness Series. His arms are separated from his body, holding a microphone in his left hand. When he sings he also shakes a lot. This is especially noticeable when he is unmasked.
Note: These are only the abilities shown in the Tricky mod. 1. Immortality: Thanks to his Portable Improbability Drive, he is able to revive himself and others at will. 2. Reality Warping: Using his Portable Improbability Drive, he can bend and break reality as he wishes. Various words like Improbable, Error, Incorrect, Invalid, Suffer, Mistakeand so on will appear on the screen while he "sings", as well as red static. 3. Beam Emission: Tricky can project large beams of energy from his mouth, as shown in the cutscene after Madness.The words appearing over Tricky's face during Madness may represent Tricky's internal thoughts. This is seen in a scene where Tricky tries to use Jesus' head to obtain his powers but ends up failin...Tricky's real identity is Dr. Hofnarr, shown in MADNESS: Project Nexus.The song titled "Improbable Outset" has its etymology in the name of Tricky's brain, which is called "Improbability Drive."Tricky's weapon, his silver stop sign, comes from when Hank hit him on the head with it and stabbed him in the chest with it. Surprisingly, Tricky started using it as a weapon.
Note: All of these Cameos are not canon to Madness Combat's story or the Tricky mod's story. 1. In B-Sides Mod, he appears at the second floor of "Week 5" mall stage. 2. In Vs. Sketchy Mod, he appears as a drawing in the background. 3. In V.S. Static Mod, he appears in a TV screen in the background during Primetime and can also be seen driving a car in the background during Genesis. 4. In The Weeg Mod, he appears in the background of Week A. 5. In VS Pompom, he appears as a carving on a tree. 6. In VS Clownso, he appears as an unlicensed plushie sold at the fair. 7. In V.S. Jester Mod, he appears in row 2 of the crowd.
Tricky's control of the Improbability Driveseems to have made him insane, or at least more twisted than he was originally. Starting off as an assassin, Tricky's mind became more and more warped as he drew more power from the Improbability Drive, leading him to become a vicious, malevolent, power-hungry, and powerful foe. He seems to like music and sometimes serves as a DJ. He also seems to “play” with Hank, reviving him when he died (and then murdering him again) several times throughout the Tricky arc, showing an extremely sadistic and vengeful way of thinking. He also armed Hank once during Madness Combat 6: Antipathy and never fought him while he was unarmed, presumably finding it more "sporting", he also waited for Hank to finish killing all of the Agents in Madness Combat 7: Consternationbefore chasing him in his demon form. Despite apparently being a psychotic killing machine, Tricky has been shown to display civility at times, as he did not attack anybody at all or fight back...
Tricky, much like Hank, can use a variety of weapons, although he is best known for his trademark streetsign which he obtained in Madness Avenger when he was impaled on a giant marshmallow and after which he was reanimated by the Higher Powers. Most of Tricky's superhuman powers come from his Portable Improbability Drive, implanted by the A.A.H.W.to be a living weapon against Hank. Tricky has the ability to jump to warp heights and to evade anyone using a type of sudden burst of speed. His body is also able to withstand much more wounds than most of his foes'. Through the assistance of the Improbability Drive he seems to be able to revive himself and others at will. One of Tricky's most significant powers is his ability to turn into a giant, flaming demon. When Hank severely wounded Tricky in Madness Antipathy, the Improbability Drive transformed the clown into his demonic form. In this state, Tricky is far more powerful, gaining more strength and the ability to spit out fire. Howev...
Tricky debuted in Madness Redeemer, but showed no significant abilities over other grunts. Wielding an M16 with a grenade launcher attachment, he attacked Hank in a large room with a squad of three grunts. Hank quickly dispatched the squad while dodging Tricky's shots, eventually stealing the M16 and killing him with his own rifle.
Tricky first appeared after the Improbability Drive was activated, wielding an M60 and a wearing a jetpack. He fired at Hank, but Hank uses a grunt as a meat shield and blocks the oncoming bullets. After failing to kill Hank with the machine gun, Tricky kicks Hank out of the building and onto the street of the Bakery. After Hank dispatches several grunts, Tricky re-confronted Hank with a scimitar, only to be impaled onto a giant marshmallow with the streetsign. However, a bolt of energy struc...
The zombified Tricky appears once again in MC4, now being the DJ of Club Mrather than a grunt on the field. In the introduction of the episode he can be seen putting on a metal mask (the iron slab), either to cover his still wounded face or to simply look unique, or to fool people into thinking he wasn't a zombie because his hands can be seen turning to regular color then going back to green after MC4. Hank arrives at the club in search of the clown, and slowly slaughters his way through the...

However, in MC3 and MC4, he has his clown smile, but in the beginning of Madness Combat 4, he didn't get zombie teeth before...Tricky has never died in a non-canonical animation.Due to an animation oversight, the bullet wounds Tricky sustained in Apotheosis are much larger at the start of Depredation and also has a larger hole in his mask.The bullet wound on his glabella is possibly there to represent a clown nose.
