Marshall Rooke II, briefly known as Token Jin, is one of the main characters in The Demon's Light.
Marshall is a tall young man with spiky black hair, light blue eyes, and a strong build. He is of both Thelsh and Northwest Halan descent. His attire is very casual — graphic tees, jeans, hoodies, sweatpants — anything one would expect a teenager to wear.
Hot-headed, Marshall often makes rash decisions and rarely listens to others. He is an assertive individual who often takes on the leadership role.
Marshall was born to Magnus Rooke and Nadia Cantrell. Magnus was a member of the Svatovid, a Mestonian crime syndicate, while Cantrell was an Alchemilia Corporation expeditor. Cantrell was not very open about her relationship, keeping her original surname and marrying Magnus in a small, private ceremony.
In his first few years, Marshall received education through Alchemilia's automated education androids. When he was seven years old, Cantrell was caught attempting to organize an assassination of Gabriel and other executives — as well as stealing and selling several pieces of Alchemilia technology on the black market. She was held in the Gladea facility's android storage wing with her co-conspirators until Remnant Rock's prison sector was opened. Marshall was sent to Silivia to live with Magnus. He lost access to the tutoring androids, now required to go to public schooling, which he would later quit. Marshall soon found employment with a construction and renovations company, where he would repair buildings damaged by attacks.
In his adolescence, Marshall gained a reputation for delinquency. He found shoplifting and petty thievery incredibly easy and was rarely caught. Magnus did little to curb Marshall's criminal activities. He hoped that his son would put his talents to use for the Svatovid when he was of age. Marshall also harbored an extreme dislike of Alchemilia for taking his mother away from him, which his father shared. These two traits ended in an attempted robbery of Alchemilia Silivia. A neophyte security officer named Sanchez foiled the attempt and had Marshall sent to a juvenile detention center.
At sixteen, Marshall began planning a robbery of Alchemilia Gladea, hoping for better luck there. Disguised as an injured homeless boy named "Token Jin," he would get the attention of Alchemilia's troops. They would take him to the facility under the assumption he was innocent and nonthreatening. Once inside, Marshall planned to steal several valuable items and sell them upon his return to Silivia.
