a character in “A Gifted World”, as played by wolfsong4640


Full Name: Marcus Alden Harrison

Nicknames/Aliases: None

Age: 22


Gift: Marcus has the ability to manipulate shadows and he has a medium gift. His medium gift allows him to hear and see the lasting energies and senses of the deceased, which includes people and sometimes animals. Not exactly "ghosts", but still haunting, nonetheless. After the death of his sister, he did his best to suppress this power. He didn't want to hear or feel the echoes of the past anymore, especially if his sister was one of those echoes. It wasn't until the Wanderers entered Helton that his gift broke free, causing him awful migraines. He still tries to suppress it, but it hinders his other abilities, too. Perhaps things will be different about his abilities once he lets go and stops running away...

Loyalty: Wanderers/Former Liberty Agent

Description: Marcus stands at a height of 6'3. He normally keeps a straight posture, so that can sometimes make him look taller. He's rather pale, and his eyes are a crimson red. His hair is jet black and slightly messy. It has gotten longer recently, so by now it falls a little over his eyebrows. There are many scars scattering his body, some hidden and some visible. He may tend to hide most of them, but the ones on his arms are normally able to be spotted.

Personality: Crimson red eyes, a tall figure, a British accent, and a brooding personality are what make up the 21 year-old at first glance. Marcus may seem like a stick in the mud (and he is sometimes), but he does have a sense of humor and happiness buried deep down. The death of his mother and sister, and the stress of his powers, tend to weigh him down, leading to a rather depressed, introverted persona. Led by his emotions, he has made several attempts on his own life in the past in Liberty, as well as one in the presence of the Wanderers. Some stern words and a few blows from the Wanderers have started to give him a wake up call, though. He has recently been giving notice to his desire for social interaction, as well as his growing feelings towards Kayla. Despite the nagging depression, he is fighting to put it to rest.

Skills: Marcus has learned from Liberty about how to fight properly and how to use weapons wisely. He can easily pick up a gun and use it without fear. The same goes for knives, but he prefers to use his Gift instead of close range in normal situations.

Weaknesses: Marcus has leaned towards depression and suicide at several points in his life. Though he is trying to move on from that now, it would be easy for the enemy to make him sway emotionally. He also has a growing attachment to the Wanderers, and he would risk everything for their sakes.

Brief History: Marcus Harrison made a break for the Wastelands after he couldn't handle working as an Agent for Liberty. He made it into the Wastelands on his own before he found Kayla Chandler, running from Erubescan Knights. After instructing her to look away, he took care of the situation quickly and the pair decided to continue running together. They continued traveling until they came across the Wanderers. Finding comfort in the group's company, they chose to remain with them.

So begins...
