Markus speaks little of his past, other than to say that he came from a far off land, though he refuses to specify which. His eyes never seem to settle on color, constantly shifting, though grey is the most common. He always wears long sleeves and pants, even in warm weather. Careful examination shows the hints of tattoos peaking out from underneath his clothing, but the only one clearly visible is a strange mark on the back of his left hand. This mark sometimes seems to glow, or shift, usually when Markus is working magic. He also casts, no shadow, and has an air about him that most people find palpably disconcerting.
