Maru was a victim of the Child Youth and Family services.
When he was a child, he was moved from house to house, eventually ending up with Smooch, Felicia and Aunty Awhi before he was moved again.
Maru yearns for a family and has somewhat found that in The Gang, who he now pledges allegiance too. Maru is protective of Smooch, Felicia and Aunty Awhi but when these two worlds collide, which family means more to him?
