Marcus is a very handsome man like virtually all of Lilly's conquests. His face shows tenderness combined a calm strength that few can project. He might even be able to be considered a bit boyish and he keeps his face well shaved. Some of his facial features point to an Irish background but is not freckled, The Ley Line Walker has long-ish dark red (almost black) which hangs down to his shoulder blades. He has light blue eyes as if staring into the sky and fairly pale skin although not unhealthy. His build is strong although more slender than strong.
He does not like dressing in the robes which are more standard for Ley Line Walkers and instead prefers to wear tunic and legging. They are modernized versions of medieval style clothing and due to his Wife's finances are of the finest quality. For colors, he prefers solid colors with grey being his favorite but also including black, dark blue, white, and brown as colors.

Character History:

Marcus remembers nothing of his early childhood and his first memories are of being trained to become a Tattoo Warrior. It is possible that he was kidnaped by Splugorth minions and its is also possible that he was raised as a slave. He showed early promise and the minion who owned him decided to begin preparation to make him into a Tattoo Warrior. At a young age, about fourteen, he had already been given several tattoos. He was no especially mistreated but the treatment of all slaves is rather harsh. For reason that are not fully clear, he was taken out of the training program and was assigned to be a servant of one of the High Lords. Quite handsome, he was likely chosen because he would make a good decoration. The High Lord was always extremely impetuous with his decisions and likely the child just took his fancy.

He served faithfully for several years but the High Lord lost favor with lord Splynncryth. The High Lord had many severe debts as well and when he lost favor, all of the debts were called in. All of his property was seized including the slave which he had. This of course included Marcus and the young human was put up on the auction block.

Who knows where he would have ended up. A shifter by the name of Lilly was visiting the market on her first visit to Atlantis. She was traveling alongside a Lizard Mage by the name of Carillon and was getting several tattoos for herself along with a minor bio-wizard alteration. Being a half demon, effectively considered a demi-god of sorts, she was not considered potential property even though she looks quite human. Marcus was extremely lucky that the young shifter noticed him and was smitten with the attractive young man. Even though it cut severely into her funds, she decided to purchase him. All he knew was an extremely beautiful woman, if a little wicked looking, about his age showed an interest in him. He had very little experience with young women at that time and it was quite an experience.

Quickly, a relationship blossomed between Lilly and Marcus. She always made it clear that he was not her slave but he stayed with her, deeply in love. He had an interest in magic but his talent lay in other paths than his lover. She helped to teach him but ultimately he chose the path of Ley Line Walker instead on that of a Shifter. After a while, they decided that marriage but it was always clear that it would not be an exclusive relationship and Lilly was seeking to have several husbands. In reality, that is likely for the best. Her sexual appetites are simply too much for any man and her supernatural nature makes her virtually tireless. She literally could kill a man, at least a normal human, in this manner.

As time went on, she formed stable relationships with several others and she added several additional husband. Still, she has a special relationship with her first husband and she adores him. Because in many ways, he is the most normal of Lilly's husbands, he often acts as her voice when dealing with others and has shown excellent skills with dealing with people, something her other husbands lack.
