Marek was a male human thief active before and during the Time of Troubles of 1358 DR.


Marek was a high-ranking member of the thieves' guild of Zhentil Keep and was a mentor to the young human Cyric. However, Cyric later escaped from Zhentil Keep and tried to live a more honest life.

During the Time of Troubles, Marek traveled to Shadowdale to persuade Cyric to rejoin the guild and abandon the people of the Dalelands to Bane. Cyric refused firmly and to fully embrace his freedom he killed Marek.[1]
