Age: Exact age unknown. Approximately 1500 years old
Habitat: Budapest, Hungary
General Description: The first generation vampire and the twin brother of William Corvinus. Centuries ago, Marcus entered into an agreement with Viktor, turning Viktor into a vampire in exchange for his assistance in controlling his brother. After Viktor had captured and imprisoned William, Marcus lost his position as the leader of the vampire clans to Viktor. Ever since, Marcus dreamt of freeing his brother William from prison.
Friends, Associates, and Sidekicks: William Corvinus
Sworn Enemies: Viktor, Michael Corvin, Selene
Special Powers: Immortality. Able to morph into a bat-like creature and fly.
Weapons of Choice: Fangs. Able to use his wings to club his victims.
Weaknesses: Allergic to sunlight.
Hobbies: A true gourmand, Marcus enjoys variety in his blood diet, often drinking human, vampire, horse, and werewolf bloods. Tasting the latter gave him additional powers, somehow turning him into a vampire-werewolf hybrid or something of that sort. Another benefit of this liquid-diet is learning new skills and information through blood memories of the victims.
Note: Remember kids, drinking your math teacher’s blood will not make you good in math. For one – you are not Marcus Corvinus, and secondly, who said your math teacher is good at math?
Note 2: Learning in this manner has an unfortunate side-effect of learning EVERYTHING your victim knows without exceptions. Do you really want to know what sounds does your math teacher’s wife make when she gets really excited?
Pet Peeves: Having Viktor as a boss
Best Lines: - Why would I listen to your lies when the journey to the truth is so much sweeter?
Total Estimated Power Rating: 18
6 Intellect Points + 5 Base Physical Strength Points + 2 Additional Physical Strength Points for when in Flying Monkey shape + 1 Shock Point + 1 Point for Mind Reading via Blood Memory + 1 Point for Basic Shape-Shifting Ability + 1 Point for Levitation/Flying Ability + 1 Point for Relative Immortality
Danger Level: Extremely high. Marcus is one of the most dangerous vampires to ever inhabit this planet.
Identification: Looks like a Winged Monkey from Wizard of Oz, only meaner.
How to Avoid: Not knowing anything about the secret location of his brother’s prison is helpful, but doesn’t guarantee your safety. Nothing does.
Suggested Actions in Case of Encounter: Duck and cover. It won’t stop Marcus, but maybe he’ll find it amusing and spare your pathetic little life. Probably not, though.
Suggested Killing Techniques: Pushing Marcus onto the rotating helicopter blades is the only sure way to kill him. It is advisable to be near a helicopter at all times.
Note: Pushing Marcus onto the helicopter blades that are not rotating will NOT produce the same effect.
