Marko grew up on the streets of Hadrakar, living a life of fraud, gambling, and petty theft until he was caught and sentenced to the mines of the Frostjaw Peaks. He escaped, killing a guard in the process.
While running from patrols, he was forced higher and higher into the mountains, until the cold forced him to take shelter in an ice cave beneath a pillar of ice filled with skulls — The Cairn of the Winter King.
Exploring deep into the winding cave, Marko found the ice scepter in the grip of a figure frozen to a thorne and obscured by a thick coating of ice. He took the valuable looking object and immediately felt warmer. When the storm passed, he left, now no longer bothered by the cold.
He intended to sell it in Fallcrest, but with the current mood, is now afraid to mention it, and is just looking for a way out.
He doesn’t want to go back to the ice cave, but will if pressed because he doesn’t want the citizens of Fallcrest to imprison or kill him.
