Marcus is a very middle east inspired character, especially his clothes. His trousers and shoes are arabian, although his jacket is based on costumes from India.
He always carries around holi powder in his pouches. Whenever he gets in trouble, he can use this powder to create a cloud of dust to get away.
Because he is a born adventurer, he gets in trouble a lot.
I based Marcus on a sketch I drew years ago. I enjoyed taking this idea in to his final appearance very much.
He is still very confident and thinks of himself as charming, which he actually is. Nevertheless he is a true friend and a very caring person.
