The Human Aspect of Marius

I grew up in two separate households. One was very strict with the main focus on my younger brother, and the other was used to sell drugs, leaving me mostly to tend to myself. In school I was quickly labeled as the kid of the local drug dealer and soon labeled the kid that will end up like his dad. I grew lonely and started isolating myself to the point where I suppressed all my emotions to survive.
