This article is about the Manga version of Mark. For alternate pages referred to by this name, please click any of the icons above.

Mark (マルク, Maruku?) is a 5-year-old orphan who formerly resided in the Grace Field House. Mark is considered as one of the house's "low-quality goods"[5] and hence has average intelligence for his age. He was brought into the escape plan by Emma about two months after the truth of the orphanage was revealed.

After his success of escaping Grace Field alongside 14 other orphans, Mark now seeks 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.

Appearance

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 some 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.

Personality

Mark is described as a boy who loves to eat.[2] 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 to be determined and eager to help out.

Plot

Introduction Arc

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 ever 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.[6]

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.[7]

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.

Jailbreak Arc

As one of the youngest children, Mark was one of the last people recruited into the escape plan after hearing about the truth about the orphanage, the House, and Isabella. Mark and his siblings escape from Grace Field House on January 15, 2046.[8]

Promised Forest Arc

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.[9]

Search For Minerva Arc

Mark was seen being overjoyed and crying tears of joy after Emma woke up from her coma following her battle with Leuvis.[10]

Cuvitidala Arc

Like the rest of his siblings, Mark escapes from the shelter after it was raided by Andrew and his team. Mark was later seen arriving at the Paradise Hideout, overjoyed that Norman was alive.

Human World Arc

Mark and the others attending school.

Upon arriving in the Human World, Mark is seen to be visibly worried and shocked about Emma's disappearance. Mark, along with the other children, agrees to search for Emma so they can reunite with her again.[11] Over the two years spent in the Human World, Mark began attending school. During spring 2050, he finally reunites with Emma again and cries tears of joy.[4]

Relationships

Naila

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.[12] They were always seen by each other's side, playing with each other, and helping each other out.

Grace Field Escapees

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.
