Maryk revoked Scorpius' command for his impudence, but went to war with the Scarrans nevertheless. Maryk maintained a strong front for his forces, but believed the war unwinnable. He sought comfort in Commandant Mele-on- Grayza, with whom he had fathered a daughter, and even confided his true feelings to her. She found this fearful belief to be a weakness, and poisoned him in order to ensure that he would not surrender to the Scarran Empire.
Maryk is derived from Farscape.
