Background on Korolus the Cursed Vampire

            Marcus Korolus was born over two and a half millennia ago in the mountains of Macedonia. In 535 BC Korolus was attacked and killed by a vampire; instead of staying dead he rose the following night.

During the sixth century Marcus spent some two hundred years living at the Temple of Light in the Song Shan Mountain in Hunan.

            A thousand years or so ago Marcus is the leader of a group of vampires who attacked a demon sorcerer for an artifact the Sword of Danzaltha, but some of them ended up cursed, weakened, nearly insane or dead. The vampire cadre was driven off by the return of their souls.

During his wanderings thru Europe Marcus was a member of the El Eliminati a fifteenth century duelist cult, led by the demon Balthazar.

During this time Korolus was attacked by a Slayer, a fight he won after staking the slayer. Enraged that the Slayer had been set on him, he tracked down and wiped out all traces of the Watchers Council in Romania.

For his affront to the sorcerer, it hunted him for seven hundred years, and when he found him cast him into a hell dimension, Quortoth, the darkest of the dark worlds.

He is immortal for twenty-five centuries he has been a soldier, a drifter and trained others. Constantly facing other demons in combat to the death. I am a Watcher part of a secret society of men and women who observe and record these events, in order to battle such evil.

He is Marcus Korolus, one of the last ancient immortals.

Some six years ago Wyncote’s men shoot and throw Korolus from his apartment's sixth story window. During this incident Korolus’ fiancée Stacey is brutally assaulted and killed by the gang.

Korolus returns to track down his fiancée's killers, killing them one by one the trail leads back to the demonic Wyncote. Korolus battles and finally defeats Wyncote by beheading him, but not before Wyncote trapped him between dimensions.

Recently he was finally able to pass through the dimensional gates and return to Sunnydale, California. When the gates opened and the dimensions started to bleed into one another, he was able to return to the library in the old Sunnydale High School on Tuesday the 22nd May 2001 by tapping the power of the Hellmouth.

Quote: “I walk the Earth seeking redemption for many past misdeeds, battling the forces of darkness.”

“I know you’ll never love me. I know that I’m a monster. But you treat me like a man and that’s enough.” Roleplaying Korolus the Cursed Vampire

            Marcus is a dark and secretive figure. He is not slow to step up should the need to fight arise. He is still recovering from his time in the demon dimension, and has not yet gained back his natural confidence and strength.
