When Marcus' wings turn black, he transforms into a bloodthirsty killer. As a fallen angel, this is an instinctual reaction for him. Surrendering himself to the urges he knows he cannot resist, he stabs the woman's back. "I've done it again," he laments. Now he will have to tell yet another lie.

Marcus is a masculine name used mostly in English, Scandinavian, French, and German, and it is of Latin origin; the meaning is "war-like, dedicated to Mars; hammer; defender; gleaming". In Mythology Mars, the Roman god of fertility, for whom the spring calendar month March was named, became identified with the Greek Ares, god of war.
