Marcus Radcliffe was a descendent of Richard Radcliffe. Much like his ancestor, Marcus found conventional trappings of civilisation stifling, and preferred the backwoods town of New Grinstead, Atlantis.
In the 1660s, Marcus was recruited by his distant cousin William Radcliff of Stuart for his assistance against yet another cousin, pirate Red Rodney Radcliffe, who, among other pirates, resided in Avalon. While Marcus initially balked at treking across Atlantis to Avalon as impractical, he did agree to join a naval expedition.Marcus was made a captain for the mission, leading a company of 60 woodsmen.
While Marcus Radcliffe had little to do during the Battle of the Hesperian Gulf, his men came through fine, and were able to lead a backwoods trek into Avalon proper while Radcliff's Armada cannonaded the city from Avalon Bay.Radcliffe and his men proved invaluable to the conquest of the city.
