name: Marc Rolan Brownett
Nicknames: Maku, Maku-neko, Neko-san
Date of birth: 11th November 1981
Appears in: 1981 – current
Personality: Quiet and shy, he only begins to reveal
his humorous and hyperactive side after getting comfortable with those
around him. Very friendly, a good listener, and easy to get along
with. Often acts very cat-like and, for various reasons, two sides
of his personality have formed within the comic as Kuro and Shiro.
History: Marc grew up with Emma Jackson and began
to find her the only reason to venture out into ‘the evil’
sunlight. Through the years, Emma became somewhat of a ‘younger
sister’ to him despite their closeness and the pushing of their
friends and family. High school brought about new allies and enemies
as well as an increased interest in drawing his ‘cartoony’
characters. Later he began to develop his own manga-like style and
drafted several comics. Also, finding a little skill with websites
and computers, Marc moved onto a digital media course in university
along with Steven After where they met Ven.
Marc currently lives with Jethro Curry and Emma in a rented house
nearby the university. It was there that an accident with a cup of
cherryade caused the creation of Kiki, a hologramatic representation
of his laptop.
Likes: His friends. Anime. Manga. RPG’s. Cheesecake.
Chocolate chip cookies. Thunder storms. Colours; blue, black, purple.
Hates: His friends being in danger. Smoke.
Often-used Phrase: "Oro?"
Signature move: Reflex Jump. An original move created in
junior school where Marc jumps and kicks off against a wall (or
walls) to dodge an incoming attack. With the momentum it can also
be used as an attack or to reach higher heights.
Mad skillz: Ability to copy attacks from anime
shows, such as the ‘Dragon
Slave’ from Slayers (used against evil coursework),
or the ‘Chidori’ from Naruto (used as a personal
‘limit break’ against fools who stand against him).
No sense of direction what so ever. Lack of confidence
in himself. Worries a lot.
Dark secrets: Probably has more shojo manga (‘comics
for girls’) than any other male in the UK… even Tiggs.
Of Comic notes by the author
Basis: Based very much on myself, only slightly cooler and
with better verbal skills, heh.
Fact 1: Marc was the first
male character I ever drew.
Fact 2: Like me, Marc has a brother called Adam,
but I can’t draw him well or find anything comic-wise to do
with him yet.
