Bio:
Appearance
Features typical of a person of Hispanic or Italian descent, dark eyes, black hair, tanned skin, etc. A strong, square jaw is apparent. His hair is typically kept short and brushed to one side. Faint scar on left cheek. Six feet tall. Typically wears black clothing and a cross on necklace.
Relations to PCs
Nash- Marco is entrusted with keeping Nash’s clothes (pants specifically) while the barkeep maintains his coyote for. Nash is often annoyed with Marco’s impulsive and brash attitude. The two emulate the Fastball Special on the odd occasion.
Berl- Marco is action, Berl is talk. Marco doesn’t like how Berl tiptoes around situations that he believes could easily be solved with a square punch on the jaw. Berl doesn’t like how Marco bull rushes into a delicate situation and feels that he needs to hold him back or turn a bad situation worse.
Background
Marco was born and raised in Atlanta by his parents (Sienna and Giovanni) until they died in a car crash. Marco was then sent to an orphanage and made friends with other hispanic kids and decided to runaway from the orphanage. Together the decided to strike out on their own.
Together Marco and his friends formed a gang and began to claim territory in the North Druid Hills area. Over time Marco grew to be the gang’s muscle. Eventually, after fighting off a larger gang with his friends he was arrested by cops. Old enough to be be judged as a minor Marco was given a lenient sentence, but in the detention center he discovered God. During his sessions with the father (Father Rodriguez) who agreed to do the prison work he became friends with him. Due to his religious zeal he is able to turn his posse into a vigilante group rather than a common street gang.
Marco works at Rosario Repairs with Rico, Paco, Jose and Carlos. Jaime Rosario is like Father Rodriguez and plays a paternal role to Marco and the posse, more so for Jose and Carlos who never really knew their dads.
The Posse
Vanessa Gomez- Marco’s “girlfriend” and unofficial head, she was the one who came up with the idea for the posse to run away from the orphanage. She works at a cafe a few blocks down from Rosario’s Garage. She is also arguably the most organized and personable.
Yasmin Cortez- Vanessa’s roommate and also works at the same cafe. She is very flighty and enjoys sweet things. She is the “nerd” of the group enjoying anime (rented) and always drags Carlos and others to Dragon*Con for the last couple years. She is also a gamer enjoying Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons and Dragons and various different RPGs and video games.
Paco Cruz- the runt of the litter, a damn good mechanic and a real good driver, though not to Marco’s level. He is the gopher of the group and a real ace with a knife. He truly enjoys action movies and the explosions. He has a crush on Yasmin, but she seems more interested in Carlos. He is quiet out of shyness.
Carlos Rivera- The intellectual of the Posse and is enrolled in college. Tall, lean, handsome and strongly silent. He is skilled in martial arts and actually capable of taking Marco on in a fight. His silence holds a wicked tongue honed through years of taunting other gangs. His silence over the years has earned him the reputation of not being a threat, though many are wrong about that.
Jose Lopez- Erratic, always making the strangest observations and a more of a brother to Carlos than everyone else in the posse. Despite this erratic behavior Jose is quite personable and gets along with everyone. He is a skilled fighter, though not on par with Marco and Carlos, and not much of a fighter if he thinks he can avoid it with a well said word. He sings, extremely well, and a great guitar player. He often initiates insult contests amongst the posse, for fun. He’s well read despite his origins.
Rico Dominguez- Marco’s best friend.
