  • On the rebound after that last shipment of Eastern Pygmy Fighting chimps got loose in the Satrap's bedroom, M was down and out, peddling fried meat products of questionable origin on the streets of Nexus. It would seem fortune had turned around when the entire alleyway filled with light, and a tall glowing figure of indeterminate features stepped forward. seeing that such a being was vaguely humaniod, and thus, theoretically possessing digestive organs, M did what seemed natural at the moment and offered the entire crate for a low low price. Ten kilograms of some of the finest anonymous meat in Creation disappeared in a thunderclap as M was left to ponder how exactly glowing like a overgrown firefly could be spun as a business venture. For days afterwards, astronomers across Creation noted the heavenly bodies rumbling in the sky with incredible distress.
  • Shortly thereafter, M headed North, intent on carving out a new destiny, and to avoid a growing number of debt collectors that sooner or later would need exponential notation to number.


Marcina is a tall, thin, disturbing androgynous individual with shoulder length auburn hair. Athletic to the point where being naked doesn't really resolve the gender question, M resembles not so much a pile of muscle as a 6ft tall strip of beef jerky from the neck down. Growing up in major metropoli where the concept of personal space is more or less non-existant, M prefers to use hir well above average height to tower over a prospective customer, grinning all the while.
