In Haitian folklore, Ti Malice is a trickster character, nemesis of Uncle Bouki or Tonton Bouqui. While Ti Malice is smart and guileful, Uncle Bouki while hardworking is also very greedy.[1] It is the apt manipulation of this greed that allows Ti Malice to often best Uncle Bouki. These characters are said to be a split of Anansi, the trickster character of the Ashanti of Ghana.
