|Appearances|| Fallout 2|
Fallout: New Vegas
Marcus is a friendly intelligent Super Mutant that appears in Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas. He used to serve in the Master's army in the events of the original Fallout. Marcus resides in Broken Hills in F2 and Jacobstown in FO:NV.
He is voiced by Michael Dom is both games.
According to the game, Marcus wandered the Wasteland after the Master's defeat until he found a Brotherhood of Steel soldier named Jacob. Jacob was intolerant of mutants and because of this Marcus and Jacob fought for a long time. When Marcus and Jacob both realized that their efforts were going to waste, they became friends and co-founded the town of Broken Hills (which sits on a uranium mine) with the help of other refugees.
After the events of Fallout 2 he travels east to the mountains to find other super mutants the previously served for the Master. What he found or what happened is unknown.
Now in 2280 he is in the town of Jacobstown (presumably named after his friend) in the Mojave Wasteland.
In Fallout 2 Marcus is a companion and the majority of the Fallout 2 fanbase regard him as the best addition to your party. He joins you after the purifier is fixed and cannot wear armor.
