Dawn of the Stars
Protective Older Brother
Marcus, Lily, and their mother returned from a couple of years with their grandparents to see their home town ravaged by the spell plague. They had known of what happened, but assumed that their home would have been okay. After watching his mother sift through the ruins, he learnt of his father’s death.
They spent a year travelling as a family, even picking up some of their grandfather’s hell hounds for protection as they did. When they decided to return to their home town of Waghurst once again, they were brought face to face with an elven mage. She spoke to Marcus and Lily’s mother up in their tower and he watched as she struck her down. Marcus, being confused and scared cried as the lady comforted him and gave him and his sister a special drink. The siblings drank it and nodded when the lady said she’d be back to check on them.
Marcus only saw her once after that. It had been a couple of weeks, or maybe years. Marcus didn’t feel or look any older and there was no one else around (apart from Lily and the puppies) to tell him how long it had been. He had begun to collect more dollies for Lily – just passers by that had met ill fate along the road. The lady had been standing on the road opposite him. She smiled before she disappeared.
Upon the death of his sister, Marcus left Waghurst, seemingly with the hellhounds in tow. His current whereabouts are unknown.
