I had someone else in RL say they didn't see Marcus as True Neutral either. There was a quote I wanted to use which I thought explained my reasoning, but it was too long to fit in the image. "I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'wouldn't it be much worse if life *were* fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?' So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." That seemed like a neutral attitude. He just struck me as very middle-of-the-road in his philosophy.
See, what that quote means to me is that he's glad that bad things happening to you doesn't mean you're a bad person. That it's the world that sucks, rather than all the people in it. His incredibly selfless acts throughout the series make him an unambiguously Good character. True Neutral is for people who don't really give a shit about good vs. evil, who just want to be left to their own devices. That ain't Marcus at all.
Shared this at an RPG forum a while ago (credit given of course)... turned out half the forum was Babylon 5 fans and instantly started arguing who went where in the chart.. based on time in the series... the other half of the forum was terribly confused since it took over most of the forum for about 2 weeks. LOVE IT:
Wow, that's pretty impressive. And I knew there'd be debate over who goes where, everyone's got their own interpretation of such things. Friend of mine argued that Marcus shouldn't be Neutral, but I stuck to my guns. I originally wanted to use the quote where he talks about the unfairness of the Universe, I thought that showed his Neutral tendencies, but it was too long. Glad to know I sparked some debate on the subject. Thanks for sharing that with me.
