Marcellus or Marc for short, is a child of Hades and is currently Head Counselor of his cabin at Camp. He has been at camp since March 2013 and is currently Dating Cherry. His sexuality is Straight and he is physically 17 years old.
He is quiet and reserved. He shows little emotion and when he does it can be quite scary. He is extremely blunt, but not at all rude. He has lots of patience, but does not tolerate people who disrespect him.There are very few people who can get a true full blown smile from him.
How they met
Janette Ryder met Marcellus' father at a bar she bar-tended at. He became a regular at the bar and always attempted to get her to go on a date with him. Finally she caved and they began dating. She quickly fell in love with him which led to the creation of Marcellus. As soon as Janette discovered she was pregnant and told his father, his father bailed and never returned; only leaving a golden wrist watch behind.
There was only one nice thing Janette ever did for her son, and that was giving him his father's wrist watch. Janette became a drunk and began to verbally abused Marcellus when she saw that he looked "too much" like his father. Therefor, Marcellus tried to stay out as much as possible; as to not cause his mother pain.Throughout his life he'd been bullied at both school and home. He became very distant from others and reserved, learning how to mask his anger, pain, and sadness.
Around the age of 12 he'd started getting attacked by monsters, his first attack was by a baby hellhound. Marcellus killed the hellhound using his father's watch. The hands on the watch began to spin out of control when the hound was running towards Marcellus. Marcellus thinking it was an innocent dog, wasn't paying it any mind and tried to fix the watch turning it into a sword. When the hell hound attacked Marcellus, he swung the sword; it stabbed the hound in the chest disposing it.
The attacks became more frequent as marcellus got older When he made 14, marcellus made a friend named Ren. He was his first and only friend, so marcellus confided in him. Telling him about all the attacks. To his surprise Ren believed him. Ren told him about the greek gods and explained to marcellus that he was a demigod.
Marcellus believed Ren, and went straight home to pack his bag and leave. When he made it to his house a horse that was on fire (Really a fire-breathing horse) was coming right towards him. In attempt to save it he turned on the hose that was near his front door and sprayed the horse, it's fire quickly dying out. Marcellus quickly turned his watch into a sward right when ren showed up. The horse ran at Marcellus spewing fire from his nostrils. Marcellus swung the sword making a deep cut on the side of the horse. Ren handled the rest quite quickly and Marcellus watched in awe as the horse turned into golden dust.
Arrival to Camp
His mother was passed out on the sofa, probably from drinking too much, when Marcellus left. On their way to camp they were attacked by a few hellhounds. They disposed of them and made it to camp safely, although they had some bruises and scratches.

Children of Hades can create one weapon out of diamond at a time or enhance an existing weapon of their own or an allies with a diamond coating that makes them unbreakable and stronger. After a short time, the diamond weapon/coating becomes weak and brittle.
Children of Hades can create very small fissure in the ground which spew small amounts of hellfire for a few moments before closing. The hellfire is more powerful than normal fire, but it’s likely to harm the user, so this power must be used carefully.
Children of Hades have the ability to create a dome of hardened soil and diamonds, roughly two or three times the size of the user, which can be used to block attacks for a very short time.
Children of Hades can conjure a set of very durable bone armor around themselves which grants enhanced protection against physical attacks. The longer the armor is maintained, the more energy is drained. After which, the armor grows weak, brittle and falls off the user’s body.
Children of Hades are able to communicate with and command the dead, able to sense spirits or other undead beings. .
Children of Hades can sense when a mortal, half-blood, nymph/spirit that they know has died through a "buzzing" in their ears.

Children of Hades are able to summon skeletal/zombie humanoids/animals to do their bidding, the more animals summoned and the bigger they are, the more energy is drained. Any armor/weaponry the undead possess increases the strain of the summoning. The undead can then be controlled by the mind of their summoner; the longer they are summoned, the more the summoner is drained of their energy.
6 Months After Character is Made
Children of Hades can use their energy to enhance their undead minions causing them to be more limber and be able to endure more attacks, essentially, undead meat-shields. The user can fight beside the constructs, but not at full force.
9 Months After Character is Made
Children of Hades are able to use many recent deaths to empower themselves for a short time, making them stronger and quicker.

Once the transformation subsides and the user reverts to normal, they are immensely drained, cannot move and could possibly faint.
Children of Hades have innate knowledge of the Underworld, able to guide themselves and allies to how to enter,explore and escape the Underworld. (as long as they aren’t already dead)
