Marek was born in Novigrad into an average Chernarussian family. His mother would care for Marek’s two younger brothers and sister while his father worked at his own established bar ‘Láska’. Growing up, Marek would help out his father at his business, at first cleaning, but after turning 18, Marek would start serving drinks.
Marek had no purpose in life – he didn’t know what he wanted to become. However, this changed when ChDkZ launched its attack in 2009 and gave Marek a new purpose – defend his homeland. At the start of the civil war, Marek enlisted in CDF and was sent to South Zagoria where he was part of the 415th ‘Skála’ Battalion. Evem though Marek’s job was to deliver ammuntion, he saw plenty of action – being ambushed by Chedaki was almost a weekly occasion.
After being shot in one of the ambushes, Marek was transported to Pavlovo military base where he met the love of his life Darja – the nurse who cared for him. After recovering, Marek had to go back to frontlines but he promised Darja he’d come back. After the end of civil war Marek kept his promise and came back an moved in with Darja in Pavlovo. After three years, Marek left the CDF and purchased land on the outskirts of Bor and lived off the land with his soon to become wife.
When the infection hit South Zagoria, Marek went to back to Novigrad, along with Darja, in hopes of finding his family. However, Marek was unable to locate them after sticking around the region for a year before heading back to South Zagoria. However, on the way there both were swarmed by infected and as a result, Darja left Marek alone. Now, he wanders around the region again in hopes of finding a new purpose...
