Marius Pontmercy is human and grew up in the city of Paris with his Grandfather sheltered from most of the world. His knowledge of the magic community was limited to what he saw on television and had heard from his grandfather. Magic was dead. Magic is bad. So when the large colorful stone from his father that had been sitting on his self as a bookend hatched and Marius was suddenly bound to a dragon, he flopped on his bed in despair only to have the baby dragon crawl on top of him and curl up. Having a dragon, a creature everyone had long since assumed was extinct, turned the poor boy’s life around. Hiding a dragon from his grandfather and the rest of the world was near impossible. Marius had no idea what a dragon would eat or what to do about his growing level burns and scratches. In an effort to learn anything he could he started asking around in the name of research and accidently found himself in the company of some darker members of the Underground. Asking too many questions about mythos means attention from curious mages like Combeferre and the black market. Montparnasse takes a special interest in the dragon and its human. Its Courfeyrac that steps in and is the first person to just offer Marius a place to go that is safe for both him and a firebreathing young dragon. And its Courfeyrac that makes sure to keep the boy and his dragon safe from the black market. Its also Courfeyrac, much to Marius’ dismay, who finds out that the baby dragon on coffee puffs smoke that smells like hazelnut and stumbles around the apartment as if tipsy. Falling in with the Underground is terrifying and Marius has no idea the proper etiquette to move in such circles. He also has no idea how to deal with the police brutality that comes with being on the wrong side of town. Its in the middles of a raid on a party on the banks of the Seine where someone had reported a charm sale that he meets Cosette.
