Marco Mardon was the uninspired of two brothers. He never dreamed of owning a big estate or of being a cartel leader like his brother. Marco was born into a rich family. When his father died, his brother Claudio started operating the cartel business. Claudio secretly arranged for a treaty with the competing cartel by offering them a large area of territory. However, as Marco was called in to assist his brother, Claudio was murdered and his body taken. The evidence of a ransom note and the blood splattering indicated a murder even though with police officially stated it was a kidnapping. Patty Spivot began investigating Marco for Claudio's murder as a personal vendetta.
Marco later discovered that the murder of Claudio was orchestrated by Claudio's wife, Elsa. He killed her with a lightning bolt, avenging his brothers death.
