When Klaus saw Marcel being whipped by an oppressor, Marcel threw an apple at him, seeing the defiance of Marcel, Klaus intervened. He freed Marcel from the Slavery and adopted Marcel as his son. Klaus gave the name ‘Marcellus’ to the boy and took him under his wing. Marcel Gerard started living with the Mikaelson family who groomed him.
As Marcel grew up, he developed a liking for Rebekah, Klaus warned him to stay away from her. Marcel wanted to become a vampire and asked Klaus several times to sire him. But Klaus denied him the vampirism because he believed that becoming a vampire would rob Marcel of all the good that Klaus saw in him, it would take away his humanity. However, Klaus was forced to turn Marcel after Marcel was seriously injured and was about to die. He forced Klaus to either turn him into a vampire or just let him die.
