Marcus, the Valiant



  • Lore
    Just as anyone else in Magistrate regular army, Marcus always was the Realm's sworn defender. In countless battles he earned himself glory and respect of the deadliest artilleryman ever lived. He never yielded Infront of enemies. He always fought to the last breath, that never was his own. He gave a vow to deal with any threat to the Realm, and never broke it. Confrontation with Paladins is yet another reason to show his worth.

    Appearance
    Marcus looks like a seasoned artilleriyman with roughened facials like broken nose and left eyebrow scar. He is medium height. He has a patch on his nose. He wears a beret, a camo uniform and a bandolier. He's about 40-45 years old.

    Relations
    Marcus likes soldiers like his own. He respects Victor, despite his past mistakes, and Strix. He doesn't like Lian, though, since she claims herself a warrior and a commander, yet Marcus hasn't seen any feat of her strength.
