In Wind of Night, Marcus talks to his daughter about a vicious dream he had about being a warrior from a past life.
MARCUS: Had this dream…was walking through some kind of field. When I got to the clearing I saw thousands of warriors across a river in the not so far off distance…all standing at attention in a line that looked like it went on for miles. I loved it. I couldn’t wait to get in there and fight. I looked behind me and I realized I was leading an army of warriors of my own. Again, thousands of them, swords, shields, armor, the whole nine. I spoke out in some language that was like a growl in the wind of night. Drew my sword and led the charge. Next thing I know I was in the middle of battle, charging into as many men as I could and not giving a damn. This went on for what felt like an eternity, but I wasn’t tired, I was full of energy that wouldn’t quit. I kept on. Swinging my sword at all these violent looking faces, until I reached their leader. Some chief on a horse…and he was mine. I ran for him and dove through the air and pierced my sword through his chest. It was over. I took over. And I didn’t give in to what stood in my way. It was mine and I took it. Believe that.
