Markl (マルクル)Howl's apprentice. He is an orphan who lives in Howl's castle. His apprenticeship in magic largely consists of running errands and doing the shopping.

Anyone familiar with Hayao Miyazaki will know of Howl no Ugoku Shiro. This film, like many of Miyazaki works, was critically acclaimed when it debuted. It was even nominated for an Academy Award in the United States. Much of this film's success is due to Joe Hisaishi's soundtrack.
The former errand dog of Madame Suliman has a heart as big as Howl's Castle. The dog Heen turns in his old mistress for a new, much kinder one. Heen is old, overweight, short, and asthmatic, but he gets an "A" for effort. Heen cares.
