Biography

A lover of the Furry genre, he particularly likes female anthropomorphic skunks, foxes, and rabbits. He and Jules was attending a Fur/Anime Convention when they ran into Cilke and Chatin, then proceeded to pounce Cilke (Campus Safari, strip 16) before she punched him out. (Campus Safari, strip 17) Jules offered to help them, and Marcus agreed - though their motives weren't altruistic. (Campus Safari, strip 30) They drove them back to their dormitory to stay, introducing them to their other dorm mates Terrie and Marissa. It would be there that Marcus would proceed to get into all sorts of mischief with them. From grabbing Chatin in the dark, (Campus Safari, strip 41) to trying to seduce Cilke with chocolate (Campus Safari, strip 58) - persuading her to give him 5 minutes of shoulder rubs for every M&M. (Campus Safari, strip 60)

Eventually Darius came to pick them up, and after first blinding him by taking his picture, (Campus Safari, strip 84) Marcus packed up his things right away and volunteered to go with them to the Mars Academy (thus saving Darius the trouble of having to forcibly take him). (Campus Safari, strip 115) It would be there that he would be sharing a room with Sean and Stephen. (Campus Safari, strip 165) But he would pick up where he left off in regards to the Cyantian females. At Ciphyr's office, he would ogle her chest (they're gills!) (Campus Safari, strip 214) then grab her tail upon leaving, causing him to be thrown across the room by her. (Campus Safari, strip 217) He would focus on how cute Zimae was and not pay attention to her as his teacher. (Campus Safari, strip 452) He would spy on Phoenix with binoculars after she got out of her shower and would be beaten up by her. (Campus Safari, strip 195) He would do this four more times and would be caught six times in the private baths of the female Cyantians. (Campus Safari, strip 534)

He would score high on the Technomage profile, with arts and architecture as his specialty. Phoenix would be assigned by Darius to give him a crash course. Zimae would give him Galen as the last available familiar, (Campus Safari, strip 455) with the note he'd be assigned a new one if they don't get along after six months. (Campus Safari, strip 456) He mistakenly keeps referring to Galen as him, even though it's a her.

It would be during this time that he would come to Cesilee's attention, much to his dismay. Because despite the fact that he loves the female half of Cyantia, he hates cats (this would, however, translate into relief for the female Mounties for this prejudice would end up protecting them from his amorous intentions). But this would not stop him from being constantly stalked and eventually kissed by her.

    • Galen still seems to best him, doing things like running away after stealing his pants and dumping him out of a tree. (Campus Safari, strip 433)
