Group: Awakened Heroes
Game: Engines of Chaos Redux
Place of Origin and RaceMouse, former friend of the Mouse Guard, from the Mouse Territories
Physical Appearance and Preferred Attire/EquipmentMarcus is a very small mouse, with mostly light-beige, white, and grey fur. He has a few scars, although most of them blend in with his fur. He is larger than most "mice", having trained and worked harder at bipedal motion, standing at about 6" tall on his hind feet.
Marcus has very simple garb on. He almost always has a staff with him to assist with his limp, and can use it to surprisingly prevent or cause a beating. When on a trip or "adventure", he would also have a small pouch for a few things and a bag of magical darts. The source of these is a closely kept secret to the mouse.

Previously in the Mouse Territories, Marcus was mostly just an "Elder" of Whitepine village, spending time telling stories and advising the youth of the village. Greyfur used to be a chiding name, but is now a status of eldership and wisdom.
BackstoryThe fields of the Mouse Territories were the scene of many wars between Mice and Weasels, and even Mice and Mice. Marcus Greyfur, one of the few of his time to claim the name Greyfur given his age and history, is a survivor of these wars, a former friend of the Mouse Guard. Some would say he is a legend, but he knows the truth about those times. It was kill or be killed, and at any cost sometimes. But it's been a few years since then, and he has bedded down in a small village named Whitepine way out of the way of any major traffic. He has a lot of money saved and spends most of his days telling tall tales and wobbling around town in an apparent limp with a staff. Marcus is seasoned, but holds it in to try to retire from the days of old.
