HISTORY
Marcus Christopher Grant was born in 1980 to a young muggle couple, David Grant and Amelia Collins. At 18 years old, they were ill prepared to raise a child, and they were shocked and upset by the strange events that increased in frequency as Marcus got older. David's attempts to deal with the oddness via corporal punishment were ultimately unsuccessful, as Marcus' distress only caused stranger things to happen at shorter intervals. Amelia dealt with the stress by retreating ever further into herself.

Eventually, David reconciled with his estranged brother, who recognized exactly what was going on with Marcus. David and Amelia, unable to cope with the revelation, ended up signing over custody of Marcus to his uncle. At 9 years of age, Marcus moved in permanently with his Uncle Charlie. Unfortunately, considerable damage had already been done to the young boy’s psyche.

Marcus was thrilled to start his career at Hogwarts, where he was sorted into Slytherin House. For his first few years, he had considerable trouble making friends, preferring to fight rather than to play nice. Eventually he calmed down and discovered the power and pleasures of controlling his temper. Though it was hard-won, he ended up capable of making connections with other people, even if those connections were usually shallow and perfunctory.

A crucial life event happened when Marcus was about to begin his seventh year of schooling. He was brought before the Muggle-Born Registration Commission to be interrogated and degraded. Despite Uncle Charlie's best efforts to forge a family tree, the two were discovered and spent most of the year in Azkaban. After their release, Marcus re-enrolled at Hogwarts as a 7th-year. The careful control he'd developed in his younger years served him well, and he was able to hide most of the trauma he'd suffered.

Due more to his natural intelligence than any sort of work ethic, Marcus graduated with high enough test scores to be accepted into Hitwizard training. Three years later, he has just turned 22 and completed his career education.


Magical Status Form

Magical Status: WEREWOLF


Werewolf Form: Standard
Werewolf Size: 5’4” long / 160 pounds

Form & Size Elaboration: Marcus only became a werewolf in late 2002, and he has never had a transformation that did not involve the appropriate use of Wolfsbane Potion, so he is not particularly fearsome. Given that he wishes to maintain his Ministry employment, he has no shot at ever becoming a dire wolf. Theoretically, if he were to transform without Wolfsbane, he could probably be pretty aggressive, but it’s highly unlikely that this will ever happen.

Due to all of these factors, his wolf form is fairly small and will probably never increase in size. His fur is roughly the same brown shade as his hair. He's also missing his front left paw.
PERSONALITY


Marcus' personality has been shaped mainly by his extreme abandonment issues. Detached and arrogant, he tends to think of people in terms of what he can get from them. He enjoys sexual liaisons with both men and women, but has never been part of an actual romantic relationship. His natural attitude toward muggles is disdainful, but his Uncle Charlie raised him well enough to ensure that Marcus would never attack anybody on the basis of blood. His biggest strength is the emotional control he is able to exert over himself.

PERSONAL SPACES

RESIDENCE DESCRIPTION

Marcus lives in a two-bedroom Ministry flat that he keeps fairly neat because he doesn't have all that much stuff. He has the kitchen basics, a couch and a few chairs, and his living room generally smells like weed. There's an elaborately carved wooden box prominently displayed in his living room; it is full of letters from his uncle Charlie and his former boyfriend, Alex. He never makes his bed, because making your bed is a waste of time.


WORKSPACE DESCRIPTION

Marcus' desk space at the MLE office is surprisingly neat, simply because he doesn't accumulate much of anything there. He doesn't have any cute framed photos or knick-knacks or anything: just quills, ink, and parchment. Because what the fuck else would he need to have in his work desk?
