Marlowe was a man living in the desolate town of Amkethran in Tethyr.

He was once a merchant of Calimshan who desired wealth. He sought out the lich Vongoethe and struck a bargain with him: if Marlowe was given wealth and fortune, Marlowe would give Vongoethe his soul after a designated time. But Marlowe, fearing for his life, fled with his daughter after his wife's death at Vongoethe's order.

Gorion's Ward could meet Marlowe in the tavern in Amkethran, where Marlowe would ask them to meet him in his house atop the cliff. Marlowe tried to persuade the Gorion's Ward to kill Vongoethe, who had Marlowe's daughter's soul in his possession.[1]
