Even someone as temperate as Marek will not back down when war is inevitable. His loyal creatures obey his every command, easily demolishing all but the hardiest of enemy lines in a whirlwind of fangs and claws. The feral strength of his cavalcade tears up the tower to do battle with Hervé.
Marek is a Czech, Polish and Slovak given name, the equivalent of Mark in English. Derived from old Latin "Mart-kos", which means "consecrated to the god Mars", and also may mean "God of war" or "to be warlike". Marcus was one of the three most common given names in Ancient Rome.
