As an airport mobile signal flare, Marion makes his living crisscrossing the runways at LAX. Marion developed a bit of a nervous twitch when his head was knocked off by the landing gear of an Air Tijuana turbo prop (his head was replaced, but Marion still drops to the ground involuntarily whenever anyone makes a propeller sound). Marion is a charter member of the now-burgeoning Los Angeles Dementia due to Sustained Proximity to Jet Fuel Fumes Support Group.
