Marcus lived a solitary life. He had acquaintances, friends, even a family that loved him dearly. The love was beyond mutual. His heart was filled with a fire and passion for this very family; but yet, he found himself alone, with nothing but the empty rustle of wind through the trees to accompany him. His fiance, Elisa had recently given birth to a beautiful baby girl and his mind was ablaze with desire to return home, to make the long travel from his forested retreat back to the bustling city they resided in. As he heard the news of their family's newest arrival, he took his work leave and ventured back east, towards the shores of Virginia beach. He worked as a park ranger, keeping the forests in check in rural central america. As much as he adored his family, he cherished the peace and quiet, away from the modern day drawls of taxes and traffic. He loved it in the wilderness, where a single breath of air felt like you were disturbing the mesmerizing silence of nature . As he stepped through the door to embrace his awaiting fiance, he never could have predicted that the news flickering on the TV, would change his life forever.
He left his family and traveled to chernarus to try and do some good after seeing the horrific news of the violence in South Zagoria. He worked closely with aid relief workers before the region was placed under marshal law.
