Character Spotlight—Drew Marek

Drew has black wavy hair and crystal blue eyes. Athletic build. He is an NCS language officer for the CIA, fluent in seven languages.

In First Light, he meets and falls in love with Elisabeth (and spends 15 years trying to make her his wife). In Out of Darkness, they’ve just gotten married when he’s taken prisoner by international arms dealers. He is a strong believer, raised by a single dad who was his hero (but he died on September 11th at the Pentagon as a fire fighter). This led to Drew’s crisis of faith and his decision to join the CIA.

He’s a family man and a fierce protector–he’s loved one woman his whole life and just wants to have a quiet life with her. He can tend to be a bit nerdy with his love of languages and attention to detail. After his capture, he suffers from PTSD but wants to believe that he’s strong enough to beat it on his own.
