Marcus Moreno was born on the 5th of April 1996, He grew up with his mother and one brother in New York, New York. His father left them at a very young age and, Marcus being the oldest, neither his brother nor him could remember their father.
Marcus didn't have the best upbringing, he constantly failed classes and had to find new schools to attend all while moving around the New York area. His mother would have to find new jobs as she could not break the habit of doing drugs and would constantly get laid off from her previous job. Despite being fired so often and her drug abuse she always looked after Marcus and his brother. Although Marcus had his brother and his mother he was always looking to do more for his family, but with Marcus only being in high school he knew he needed to get through classes and make it to college to get his family out of there bad situation.
Four years later Marcus graduated high school and college with almost all straight A's and got a business degree at the University of Stanford. During Marcus' time in school he met someone who was going to school for criminal justice. This person taught Marcus how to shoot a pistol in a firing range and would take him hunting because that was his favorite past time and wanted to share it with Marcus. Marcus' friend ended up transferring schools but Marcus always considered him a brother and continued to go hunting in remembrance of him. In the middle of his first year at college Marcus' brother had left them, and his mother had told him that she knew where he went but was told to keep it a secret until Marcus finished schooling. That made Marcus even more determined. After his graduation Marcus took his mother to a restaurant she loved growing up and that's when she told him...
Marcus' brother never felt like he fit in where they were and wanted to stay somewhere in the country. He decided that the United States wasn't for him and wanted to go to a country more in touch with its nature side. Chernarus. Marcus couldn't wrap his head around it but he knew that he had to go find his brother and talk to him. See how he was doing. Make sure he was doing good for himself.
A few months later, after making some money for himself and making sure his mom could strive and be successful on her own he set out for Chernarus. He flew to Italy and decided to take a boat to go the rest of the way because it was cheaper and wanted to see the beauty of the country to understand why his brother chose this path. The captain of the ship announced they were getting closer to there destination. Marcus started to get butterflies in his stomach, he was so excited yet nervous to see his brother, he wanted to catch up with him and see how he was doing and tell him about mother and the success he had in school. Marcus was leaning over the edge watching the country side past and everything seemed perfect but, Marcus heard a scream from the bridge followed by "OH FUCK, OH FUCK, SHIT SHIT SHIT. DO SOMETHING!" Immediately after there was a shot. Marcus' adrenaline went into overdrive and he went to see if everyone was okay. He started to make his way toward the bridge when out of the corner of his eye he saw that one of the storage containers they were hauling was opened. Marcus then went to go look inside... What he saw was too much for anyone to handle, pieces of flesh everywhere and blood marks all over the walls. Marcus' first instinct was that they were hauling cannibals and they escaped. Marcus then continued with his search and made it to the bridge. It was a mess, almost like a murder scene. Marcus then opened the door to the bridge and was immediately grabbed by an unknown arm.... It was the captain. He said "The bridge has been over run by, by, by.....I don't know what they are but you need to run!" the captain handed Marcus the pistol he had then ultimately died. As soon as Marcus went to turn to go down the stairs of the bridge and find an exit he noticed the boat was heading on a crash course for land. Marcus tried to make it to the edge of the boat but the boat hit land too fast... Marcus thought that was it, so many thoughts going through his head at once, he hoped to see his family again in Heaven.
Marcus, still in a concussed state woke up on the beaches of Chernarus. He didn't understand how he lived or why it seemed like he was the only one to live because there was no one else in sight but Marcus still knew what he came to do, no matter how hard the challenge has now become, even if he may die trying, he had to find his brother, now more than ever. Marcus just hopes his mother will forgive him.
