    Poor Marcelus… I wouldn’t want to live that long!
    In this picture he looks a bit scary…

    • Rosie, Fantasy Writer To Be

      Yeah, that’s definitely not his good side… You know, if he has one…

  2. He’s pretty cool, except for the fact that he kidnapped Septimus…

    I do like the picture of the *Younger* Marcellus.

  3. Bryony :)

    Marcellus Pye… he looks pretty weird in this picture but I love the way he speaks, all old and fancy 😉 I hope he gets to help Septimus out in Darke or sometimes in the near future 😀

    Also I wish I could do all the alchemie and physik he does!

    In Physik i didnt like it that he kidnapped Septimus but
    I found it so funny in queste the many Marcellus vs Marcia feuds
    and then when he compared getting Nicko back from the house of Foryx as possible as if he would go and have tea with the Extraodinary wizard and then he actually does later in the book XD made my day

    They should’ve used the one where he’s young again… Sep DID make him young again, so I don’t see why they used this one,he looks creepy…

    • Rosie, Fantasy Writer To Be

      It’s probably for the people who haven’t read all the books yet.

  6. Jenna Haruka

    He looks so different from his younger picture in Queste.

    haha that picture actually scared me every time he was on a chapter! But i like the young Marcellus too.

    Hey, I don’t remember the picture of “younger” Marcellus Pye, but I picture him hot.

    • Physik, ch. 48.

    • Namara

      Hey, I think Marcellus is hot some people disagree but to each their own. Anyway, I LOVE Marcellus he’s proper because of the time he’s from and he doesn’t like to interact with the “modern”( I guess?) so I find myself thinking of ways to embarass him (≧∇≦)

    Sorry to say this but young Marcellus (man, that is a hard name to spell!) is not hot, not with that wierd haircut of his. Anyway I wanted to ask did the book ever give a reason for why he’s scared of fires? I don’t remember there being one.

    I think the younger Marcellus looks better than the older version but i haven’t even started Syren yet sooooo yeah

  11. It was so funny… it was about midnight, and I was very sleepy in my bed reading Physik, when all of a sudden I turned the page and I got all freaked out because of that creeper picture!!! But then I started laughing, lol.
    Marcellus is actually one of my favorites. I predict he and Marcia will come to an understanding… at the least… if you know what I mean… 🙂
    I pictured him hot too, not like in the picture, though.
    This is off-topic but the picture in the books of Princess Jenna (The more recent one) looks JUST LIKE my neighbor Jenna. She should be her in the movie, haha.

    I actually fancy Marcellus and Marcia will end up with a romantic relationship! 😀

  13. Vivian

    yup, that would be a nice touch grace
