Personality[edit | edit source]
Marcos is a stern and strict man who takes his position as the captain of the Royal Guard seriously. He is composed at all times, allowing him to calmly deal with emergencies. He is also surprisingly thoughtful and perceptive which has allowed him to look for his soldiers on and off the field.
History[edit | edit source]
Marcos became the captain of the Royal Guard following his achievements in solving Galic Fabless's murder and its related incident.
Roughly a year before the start of the main story, Marcos was approached by Crusch who voiced her request to accept Ferris into the Royal Guard and make a knight out of him. Due to Ferris' unparalleled healing magic, he accepted him among the ranks of Royal Guards and employed him many times in the following year.
Not long as after the collective death of the entire Royal Family, Marcos assigned Reinhard van Astrea, Julius Juukulius and Ferris to accompany the two Sage Council members Miklotov McMahon and Bordeaux Zellgef to the neighboring Empire of Vollachia. Roughly a month after their return, he arranged a proxy fight between the Lugnican Sword Saint Reinhard van Astrea and the Vollachian First Ranking Divine General Cecils Segmund.
About half a year later, Marcos played a proxy role during the Royal Selection Ceremony, due to his position as the captain of the Royal Guard.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Rock Armor: Referred to as his trump card, Marcos can create body armor using magic that covers his entire body. The armor is made of gray stones, increases his height to three meters, and makes him immune to things like poison gas.
Discerning Eye: By making his blue eyes glimmer slightly, Marcos can check for dangerous magic reactions and/or any equipment people may have.
Great Power: He's regarded as the second strongest in the kingdom, only falling behind Reinhard. He's said to be on par with Roswaal in terms of overall power.
