With the destruction of Southshore by Forsaken plague bombing in Cataclysm, Marcus was killed with many other citizens. His body was transported to the Deathknell Graves and raised as an undead, but when he was approached by a Forsaken agent to join them, he refused, vowing vengeance against them for destroying Southshore.
He is later found at Rotbrain Encampment as the leader of the Rotbrain undead, planning an attack on Deathknell, where Forsaken players are sent to slay him.
