History and campaign notesMarcus Alton was the third son of a knight of little renown. He was of only average strength, and not very brave. His small size did not predispose him to warrior training.
While squire to a very poor knight (who else would take him), adventure brought them together with an priest of Tloluvin. The party had a battle in a cave against a balrog, and Marcus was severely injured and dying. The priest asked him if he would devote his soul to Tloluvin. If he did this, the power of his lord would save him. Not wanting to die, Marcus agreed to commit his soul to the chaos god. The priest summoned the Dark Lord, and Marcus was infused with the power of the god. When he woke, he body had been transformed: his strength was as great as any man known, and his bravery was very great. He also had the chilling blue eyes of a killer, the mark of Tloluvin's Chosen.
Marcus completed his training as a knight, and now wanders from place to place, fighting for the cause of Chaos and Tloluvin.
