Marcus stands of an average human male height, dirty red hair hanging down to his shoulders and the scale armor that he wears does little to hide the hard and defined muscle tone underneath. Born to a military family with a long legacy, his father is the Captain of the Guards of Belgarand. Marcus was chosen at a young age to become a Platinum Sentinel of Bahamut; he is fearless and courageous, with renowned skills in weapons to match.
These vigilant warriors are divinely chosen and sought out for their unique skills by the Justicar, high priests of Bahamut. To be a Sentinel is to be guided in faith, with unwavering devotion that what they do is all part of a bigger plan. As such, they defend their sworn charge with their lives, many times appointed to protect righteous nobles, revered leaders or simply a commoner, if it be Bahamut’s will.
At times, the high priests of Moradin and Pelor will ask the Justicar’s for their services, for the protection of the Platinum Sentinels. With Bahamut’s foresight, Marcus has been groomed and specifically appointed to be the guardian for a priestess of Pelor, Lady Sasha the “Lightbringer”. Sasha is a female Deva with unearthly beauty, guided by a spiritual passion to care for the weak, weary and the wounded.
Several years have now passed, as Marcus stands beside Sasha as a watchful guardian during her divine journey across the lands.
