Biography: Marcus was born in Compton, CA to working class parents in the mid-80’s. His love from The Wu-Tang Clan growing up lead him away from gangs and the street violence that tore his city apart, instead directing his energy towards martial arts. Even still, violence touched his life early, shaping his understanding of humanity and life. His best friend was killed as they walked home together from karate lessons by gang members. That same day he discovered his ability to communicate telepathically with animals, shifting his life forever.
As the cats and dogs, who already had the ability to communicate, discovered Marcus they invested heavily in his development. Cat-developed nano-technology was steadily integrated into his body, creating a fierce, powerful warrior with enhanced mental processing. Coordinated by the dogs and cats, a team of animal rights activists are assembled to prepare for the impending telepathic event when cows also connect. With one billion individual cows in the world, all parties are concerned of the outcome.
Marcus leads the “Over The Rainbow Farm Sanctuary” (OTR Sanctuary) with his live-in-girlfriend Alexsis, long time companion Rapha the dog, tech-specialist Jesse and house mom, “Mama.” Together, along with animals they have rescued over the years through their undercover animal rights operations, the work towards identifying when and where the cows will first connect before moving in to avert disaster as the telepathic abilities spread from the first cow to all cows worldwide.
