Title: Above The Fog #2
Character: Marcus Dixon
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Notes: Set between S2 and S3
It's too much in the space of a year, almost too much for Marcus to process.
Discovering his life's work is actually a sham, that he's unknowingly committed countless acts of terrorism.
Going through the rounds of interrogation and investigation by the CIA.
Losing Diane, in a vortex of concussion and fire.
Losing Sydney, through betrayals he barely comprehends.
The director levels his gaze at him. "These are highly unusual circumstances, but losing Jack..." He trails off, doesn't finish. "You're more familiar with Rambaldi than any of our agents. The agency needs your help."
Marcus cannot speak, but he nods.
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith, and willing hands;
Men whom the lust of office does not kill;
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;
Men who possess opinions and a will;
Men who have honor; men who will not lie;
Men who can stand before a demagogue
And dam his treacherous flatteries without winking;
Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog
In public duty and in private thinking.
