Marlene is quite emotional and wears her heart on her sleeve. If hurt, she will cry. She is nice to everybody she can but can get temperamental at times. She had always had a strong dislike for the Coalition, stemming from their hostility towards mages, but if she gets to know a person from the Coalition, she does not treat them any differently than anyone else. The young mage has no distrust for non-human creatures although will base her reactions in part from what she knows about the creature. For example, a vampire would have to prove themselves trustworthy and it would be very difficult. She shows a friendly face to people but is careful about who she deals with. Marlene is very loyal to her friends but is willing to use those who are not their friends although she will often be disgusted with herself afterwards. Although she prefers not to take the leader role when she has a choice, she will when she sees other as being incompetent and is fairly capable.
While she loves her husband, she does have a roving eye for both men and other women. She loves getting looks from others and struts her stuff to get that attraction. In addition, Marlene has developed a very strong sex drive and loves to seduce others. Marlene has studied Tantric magic and enjoys that style of magic although will not do it on an unwilling lover. Only with those who she really trusts with she show a submissive side.

Marlene is the daughter of a female Druid named Myleandra Hawkins and a male Cyberknight named Carlton Lorne. While Marlene’s father was fully human, Marlene’s mother is Half Elven by birth with magic being used to conceive of Marlene’s mother although Marlene’s mother is fertile with both humans and elves due to the magic used to conceive her. As a result, Marlene is three quarters Human and one quarter Elven. Her appearance is far more like that of a human than an elf and her life span is likely to far less than a full blooded elf although likely a bit longer lived than if she was pure human blood.
Marlene was the second born out of four children with an older brother and two younger sisters. Her elder brother learned the profession of being an operator and always loved machines and was excellent mechanic. He is about four years older than Marlene. Marlene’s closest sister, just a couple of years younger than her, had a very powerful psychic gift and became a Mind Melter, although like many prefers the term “Mind Mage.” All of the children are psychic to a lesser or greater extent. Marlene’s youngest sister has become a power armor pilot and served in various mercenary companies over the years. She is about six years younger than Marlene and is the baby of the family.
There are a number of relatively small villages around the city of Lazlo and her father worked as the main guardian for the small village. He was around forty when he met Marlene’s mother but the fell in love and started a family within a year of meeting. Unfortunately, Marlene’s family was shattered when she was just ten years old. The village was attacked by a large bandit group and was practically burned to the ground. As well, Marlene’s father was killed in the attack and her younger sister was separated when they were attempting to flee. Marlene thought her youngest sister was killed and it was no until many years later that she discovered that her sister was rescued by another family, who though Marlene’s family had all been killed, and they were not reunited for many years.
Marlene’s mother decided to flee to the city of Lazlo and took up residence there. As a young girl, Marlene was always interested in magic and took up learning the ways of magic at one of the city’s many magic schools. She took up the study of becoming a Ley Line Walker, having no special talent with machines needed to become a techno-wizard, and not interested in becoming a Shifter either, not liking the idea of regular dealing with powerful supernatural creatures. She was a decent student although she was not considered exceptional. She always wanted to finish so that she could make a name for herself.
The raven haired Ley Line Walker finished her training when she was just sixteen and went out adventuring almost immediately. In one of her first treks, she me a much older veteran soldier who swept her off her feet. Even though she had been a virgin up until this point, they became lovers on the first night and quickly married. While there was definitely chemistry between them, there was something more as well. Still, their relationship took many interesting turns. Even though she loves her husband greatly, she found she had a passion for relationships outside of her marriage with both men and other women. While a very strong woman, she found she liked to play submissive with lovers who she trusted and even liked to be helpless with them.
While adventuring, she found an usual magic rod which seemed to be without any powers yet hand an incredibly strong magic aura. She did some research and discovered that the rod was part of a staff which required for ‘rods’ to be combined. Marlene and her adventuring companions set out to find the other three parts and met up with several others along the way who also became adventuring companions. There were many difficult problems to surmount including vampires but eventually she was able to get all the components of the staff.
When she had gotten all the components, the magic of the various rods drew her to the location of a hill in the eastern part of North America. There was a powerful untapped ley line nexus at that location and when she got there, she found herself putting the parts of the staff together. A massive amount of ley line energy pulsed through the nexus point much of the energy focusing straight into her. Marlene collapsed unconscious but none of her companions could get close to her due to the magical energies surrounding her. As time went on, her companions were slowly forced further and further back by the energies until they had to leave the top of the hill altogether. They stayed, although at some distance, because they were concerned and did not want to abandon her. Marlene’s companions started to notice something very unusual, the magical was forming a mist like silhouette of a castle although she was completely oblivious. Over the next two days hours, the strange mist thickened slowly and became strong grey stone walls.
When she woke, Marlene found herself inside of a large marble chamber with herself tightly wrapped around the staff. She could feel a link between herself, the castle, and the rune staff. She could control the magical abilities of the castle and felt the castle as her home. At the same time, even though they were distracted by the appearance of the castle, her companions went to look and find her. They found her sitting up just staring into space and it took several attempts before they could get her attention.
With the appearance of the castle, Marlene decided to reduce her adventuring and start a family. She had no realized it at the time but she was already pregnant when she linked with the staff and the castle. Her first daughter, who she named Minerva after the Goddess, was born when Marlene was still only seventeen. The child was born on December 21 which is better known as Winter Solstice. Later, she got pregnant again and had triplets this time although not identical. She named her new son Maximillian and his two sisters Alexia and Melody. After that, she decided to use various magic to prevent further children although she always wanted to have a very large family and planned to have several more children. With her husbands agreement, she developed a relationship with a Veritech fighter pilot named Joan Smith, who’s husband had been a Veritech hover tank pilot and had been killed in combat. The relationship intensified and Marlene brought her husband into the relationship as well. Eventually, Marlene persuaded Joan and Marlene’s husband into a three way marriage. She arranged through that both her and her new wife would be fertile on their wedding day and began pregnant within minutes of each other. She did it to create an additional bond in the marriage and nine months later, a pair of girls we born.
The young ley line walker did not completely give up adventuring although she does spend most of time at the castle where she researches magic and has gathered an incredible library of spells. While adventuring, she had several run ins with other mages and had to fight against both vampires and the Coalition. She was also once captured by the leadership of the Kingdom of Dunscon and had to be rescued by a group of adventures. Luckily, the adventurers were also able to rescue her enchanted staff as well or events could have become extremely evil.
