Marcus O'Donovan

Player: DrSavage

Position: Close Combat Officer

Demeanor: A strong man who acts as guardian to those as best he can.

Nature: Fiercely devoted to his work, seems to take new experiences in stride and adapts quickly to dangerous situations. Decently kind to his teammates and non-threats, but enters a sort of tranquil fury and some sort of pleasure when entering combat.

Description: A tall (6'7"), rather solidly built man (280 lbs). Usually wears a a long loose jacket over his uniform that allows him to keep his flexibility. If he's not wearing his gas mask, he's usually got it slung on his belt. His hair is jet black and is usually kept rather short, usually buzzed. His accent is thick and consists of an odd mix of Belfast and Longford, low and with a lot of dialect mixed in from the both of them. Large, jagged scars along his chest and back.

Specialties
  • Emerald Warrior: 3. To put it simply, Marcus is a sight to behold in combat, he hits hard, to be certain. However, he can also take quite a few hits, and in fact seems to only get tougher the more damage he takes. (When at 8 health or lower, there is a plus 3 bonus to Determination/Resilience)
  • Cuchulain's Kin: 3. Being the former officer and former streetfighter he was, Marcus excels at fighting one on one, becoming a rather formidable and terrible spectacle to behold (Plus 3 to Athletics for grappling humanoids or humanoid shaped entities in a one-on-one fight).
  • The Guardian: 2. It always been in Marcus to put others safety ahead of his own in dire and strange situations. As such, he will rush himself into harm's way in order to ward off damage from others. (Bonus plus 2 to Athletics to grab others and put himself between them and a source of harm).

Personal History:

Born and raised in Cork City, by a mother from Belfast and father from Longford, Marcus grew up with decent, loving parents. Conflict came into his life by way of a local crew of ne'er-do-wells, though Marcus solved this problem by taking lessons in boxing and wrestling, as it were. This would serve him well life progressed as he went from being terrorized to being seen as a sort of guardian of the area he lived in, doling out justice with fists and takedowns, and at times, flat out brawls. Deciding it was time to make things official, Marcus entered the police force and worked several years in it before encountering an entity that'd caused quite the brutal scene in a hotel. With a fellow officer's life in danger, Marcus made a gamble with the creature (later revealed to be an associate of Cernunnos), assuring he could beat it with no firearm and no weapons. Strangely enough, he beat down and subdued the creature, though not without sustaining a few scars himself. It was at this time, when the local Foundation liaisons showed up, Marcus was offered the opportunity to be a "guardian" on a greater level. And thus began his career in the Foundation, subduing some anomalies and destroying others with the various teams he'd work with until now…

Miscellaneous:

  • Favorite color is blue-green
  • Speaks English, Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, French (spent time with the Foundation stationed in France)
  • Slow to anger but like a force of nature when riled
  • Special interest in folklore and related anomalies
  • While slow to anger, does enjoy fighting and sparring
  • Soft spot for strawberries and honey
