Marcus is one of the three leaders the Volturi. He possesses the gift of relationship identification, allowing him to see the emotional ties between others. He was the husband of Didyme until she was killed by Aro. The death of his wife caused him into a state of withdraw, introverted state. He is only kept in the coven by Chelsea's power over his loyalty.

Main article: Breaking Dawn

In Alice's vision, near the end of the battle, Marcus is out in the open, unprotected, giving Stefan and Vladimir a chance to carry out their revenge against the Volturi. He spreads his arms out, muttering "Finally", and they grab his arms, twist them around him, breaking off his upper half of the body, along with his arms, killing him quickly. But since Alice convinced Aro to change his "course", the battle never occurred and Marcus left with the rest of his coven.
