Design Notes: When I designed Marlon, my one driving thought was how much I hate incompetent comic relief. In story terms, yes, Marlon's a goofball and overenthusiastic and a bit of a screw-up. However, in game terms, this kid is a powerhouse. He delivers buffs, he's loaded with HP, his attacks are vicious and deadly familiars, but most importantly, he's the summoner. With most comic relief, you wonder why the rest of the party puts up with them. With Marlon, it's clear: this kid has serious potential, and he wants help becoming a hero.
