Mark (マルク, Maruku?) is a minor character of The Promised Neverland. He is a 5-year-old orphan who formerly resided in Grace Field House under the parental care of Isabella. Mark has average intelligence for his age, hence he was classified as one of the house's "low quality goods".
After his success of escaping Grace Field alongside 14 other orphans, Mark now seek to find William Minerva, whom he and her team believe can grant them the liberty to live a safe and peaceful life away from the demons.
Mark was born in 2040 and sent to Grace Field House a year later in 2041, growing up along with Naila and several other children.
Mark is a young boy with a wide smile and round, light blue eyes. He has light brown hair which resembles a bowl-cut, with straight, evenly-cut bangs which cover his forehead. He also has an ahoge on the top of his head, which resembles the stem of a leaf. Like all the other children at the orphanage, he wears the standard Grace Field uniform— a white shirt and trousers along with plain brown shoes. His identification number, "79294", can be seen on the left side of his neck.
In 2047, Mark stopped wearing the standard uniform when he arrived at the shelter where he found new clothes. He began wearing long, black pants, a black shirt, and a long white-colored coat together with the old brown shoes he wore at Grace Field House. He can also be seen wearing a backpack if they are traveling
Mark is described as a boy who loves to eat. He is a cheerful and curious boy who wears his emotions on his sleeve. He cares about his siblings and is very protective of all of them. Like the rest of his younger siblings, he is also shown determined and eager to help out.
Taking daily tests, playing a game of tag, eating scrumptious homemade food and having a good time – Mark went through the same routine every day in Grace Field House, an orphanage he has been living in since he was born.
On October 12, 2045, he was seen playing with his siblings and was eventually caught by Norman in a game of tag. Standing alongside Naila, he also said goodbye to Conny who was leaving the orphanage.
When Naila got lost in the forest, Mark came up to Isabella, crying. He told her that he had tried searching for her but couldn't find her. Isabella later found her using the navigator, inadvertently revealing for the older children that she could track them.
Later, during another game of tag, he was caught by Krone. He was also seen participating in the training sessions under the disguise of playing.
As one of the youngest children, Mark was one of the last people recruited into the escape plan after hearing about the truth of the orphanage, the House, and Isabella. Mark and his siblings escape from Grace Field House on January 15, 2046.
After escaping Grace Field with his siblings, Mark and his siblings started looking for location B06-32 with some help from Mujika and Sonju; in which later they found out it is a hidden shelter in the wasteland. Upon reaching Shelter B06-32 like the rest of the children, he took refuge in it for more than a year.
Mark grew up with Naila ever since they grew up at Grace Field House. Out of all the children, Mark was the closest to Naila. They were always seen by each other's side, playing with each other, and helping each other out.
Mark gets along with the Grace Field Escapees, particularly the younger children such as Alicia, Jemima, Yvette, Rossi, Dominic, and Chris. They are often seen playing together, helping each other with chores and cheering for one another's accomplishments. He also has an attachment to the older kids such as Emma and Ray.
