The Legend of Mythann
Marcus Bransen is a lesser captain in the Order of the Raven. He is benevolent and charitable, and makes a practice of offering food and shelter to complete strangers off the street. He recruited Nicholas Gray, and views the boy almost as an adopted son. Bransen has always looked on the party with respect, and never hesitates to offer them unconditional aid.
Marcus met his end under the wrath of Frostburn when he attempted to free the hostages during the crisis in Notay Orimin, leaving Nicholas Gray in charge of the Ravens.
