Marcus Taggert


When Marcus Taggert came to town in 1996, he was out for revenge on Sonny. Sonny’s abusive stepfather, Deke, had been a mentor to young Marcus back in Bensonhurst and encouraged him to become a cop. He thought Sonny had gunned him down in an alley. He also hated Sonny when his wife, Lily, was murdered by a car bomb.

He has a sister, Gia, and his mother was Florence. He dated several women, but none of them became serious relationships.  He clashed with Scott Baldwin about his professional ethics in 2003 and ended up leaving to take a job in Portland.

He returned in 2020 and seemingly died, but his death was faked in order to catch Cyrus. We learned that Trina was his daughter and that Portia was his ex-wife. Also, he’d worked with Jordan before. Marcus was able to return to the world after Cyrus was put away. He’s been there to support his daughter, Trina.

When Portia was about to marry Curtis, she was forced to admit that Curtis might be Trina’s dad, not Marcus.
