Black Magic Nights
A Survivor of the Universal Brotherhood, defeated once and for all beneath New Orleans
Marcus saw the writing on the wall a few days before the Universal Brotherhood in New Orleans got shut down. Though he still serves Ant, he’s been able to lay low for the last 7 years, biding his time and slowly building his colony – using many of the same techniques he learned in the Brotherhood.
He formed an initiatory group with a few other Talented individuals that he could convert to his cause (or use as a host for a powerful flesh-form spirit if they wouldn’t “See Reason”), and set up a soup kitchen and shelter for the homeless population of the French Quarter. This was, of course, a front for his Ant Colony, and many of the homeless became the host incubators for his new generation of Ant Spirits.
He’d been running this scheme for nearly a year when Aioda SiSyntax brought it all crashing down. She’d been given his name as a potential contact for finding an initiatory group, and over the course of their first meeting she became suspicious. Shortly after, Lone Star got involved – and now his ‘soup kitchen’ is called the Ant Hole.
