| 2007, it was discovered that Marius the elder possessed a maladaptive mutation; the ability to create "psychic parasites" that could destroy a person's mind. Marius intended to infect his sister with these parasites and then usurp her body to avoid the eventual physical degradation that came as a side effect of his powers and extensive drug use. However, this plot was thwarted, and Marius currently resides in a nursing home in a semi-catatonic state. For further information, see his individual page

| Amanti Laverne
mother to Marius Laverne
| Vitiation as "it has become increasingly apparent that those wishes are idiotic." Currently she resides in Brisbane. Amanti is attractive and impeccably well made-up. She shares many traits with her son, including fantastic hair and the ability to carry on an entire conversation without once requiring the input of an outside party. Astonishingly, Cartier has never considered leaving his wife for her.

The St. Croix family is considered Australian 'royalty' - they have had controlling shares in the Australian media for several generations and have considerable wealth. The current generation, however, is known more for its antics than for its achivements, with the eldest son being disowned, the eldest daughter sent to school in the States after being expelled from almost every private school available in Austalia, and illegitimate son Marius Larvne openly acknowledged and accepted by both his father and his father's wife.
 - Cartier leaves a voicemail on Charles' answering machine pleading for help in finding his missing son.
 - Forge broaches a possible treatment for Marius' maladaptive mutation with Cartier.
These NPCs were jointly created by players Mel and Tapestry, the latter of whom applied for her PC not knowing much of the family had already been established in the game.
In the original Marvel comic Cartier was alternately portrayed as white and black. Tapestry went with the latter because that's how he was depicted in the only issue where the character was actually shown interacting with his children. But mostly because she just gave up.
