Personality: Marciano is a nasty, gross, and downright horrible person. He steals, murders, kidnaps, and enslaves others. He is lewd and perverse in nature. He is perfectly content to watch others suffer. He has a good voice however and sings all the time. He tends to hate water. He is the embodiment of evil. He also possesses a wicked sense of humor. He delights in cheating, robbing, fraud and blackmail, relishing every aspect of them with glee. He is tough, greedy, brutal, stupid and crafty yet irresistible. He hates society and blames it and everyone else for all his misfortune. He is also the opportunist and realist of the show. He is a thief, a liar; a cheat who steals valuables from the dead with no remorse. His comedy is based in reality and is very exaggerated. A cruel, wretched, money-obsessed man who first appears as Elkandar's and Tyalla's keeper and tormentor. Marciano extorts money from whomever he can, and he frequently serves as an informant to whoever will bid the highest. His schemes range from robbery to fraud to murder, and he has strong ties to the criminal underworld in the Nexus. Blinded by greed, Marciano is incapable of loving other human beings and spends every minute in pursuit of money. Marciano is the epitome of evil. A continuous bane to humanity, he is also the chief representative of the worst elements of Cylar society. He is the product of laws that turn misdemeanors into major felonies, the outcome of a society where the honest poor can barely survive. His own lack of character leads him into a life of crime where his style of living is even worse than simply being poor. Yet, he is clever. He has the intelligence to rise above his circumstances, but chooses to use it for criminal ends.
