    Biography:
    Being from a high achieving family, with a Cambridge professor mother, and a Nasa Engineer Father, he was expected to excel beyond other people his age. Being personally tutored outside of school, he became the 'know it all' kid, and others left him alone. Due to this, he spent most of his time in the library, reading various novels, pretending to have the exciting lives of the protagonists.

    Seeing him alone, A librarian decided to talk to him and try to get to know him better. Trying to make conversation, Marcus read aloud some of his books. To their surprise, he summoned the red shoes from the Wizard of Oz.

    While he was amazed at what happened, Marcus tried to think about what had happened, as if it all just been a dream. Until one English session, when he had to read The Hobbit in front of the Classroom. He received detention for bringing a knife to school, despite claims that the sword 'sting' came from the book. He was expelled in the same week, due to parents hearing about the incident.

    He was homeschool for a while since then, leaving him ample time to experiment with his newfound ability. What he didn't realise, however, was that as he continued using his power, it slowly coloured his hair, until it had turned blue. His parents then discovered what he could do, and without remorse, sent him far off to a place called Manta Carlos.
