Personal information
Born: 1993/1994

Pope Marcus I, reigning from 2005 - 2009 (and after a short interregnum) 2009 - 2010, was the head of the Taklamacanian and then Moylurgian proto-religions and all of the proto-faiths that existed in the kingdom, such as the Tree Cult and the Cult of the Black Cat.

Personality, Papacy and clash with the Monarchy

Marcus himself was considered rather eccentric and strange, although King Declan had no problem with him or his ideas.

He headed a medical institution, necessary for the frequent attacks and civil wars that the Taklamacan endured until late 2007, but this was destroyed earlier that year by a group of "barbarians" that attacked the capital.

In 2009, it was discovered that the Pope intended to overthrow the King. Declan I deposed Marcus as Pope and abolished the Papacy, before banishing him from the Kingdom. However, after an appeal from Marcus the King allowed him to return, and even reinstalled the Papacy.

When the Taklamacan united with Moylurg, the Papacy was accordingly re-named and Marcus I became Pope of the Proto-Cults of Moylurg.

In June 2010 however, Marcus spoke about the King in a way that Declan I did not feel was appropriate. Pope Marcus was attacked by members of the public before being once more removed from the Kingdom, and Marcus' duties as Pope were taken up by Kimberley I.
