Marcus was born of a simple farming family out in the wild untamed lands of the Montana plains. After both his parents passing in his early 20s, he found it hard for the small family farm to make ends meet. He resorted to using his isolated location to begin growing and selling weed, whilst maintaining his crops and small amount of livestock on the family acreage. Unfortunately for him, a small offshoot of the Russian mafia found his location ideal for getting a foothold on American soil, they kidnap him and take him to the Isle of Chernobus. Unfortunately tragedy would soon befall the entire world soon, as Marcus finds himself in a strange world beset by a plague of mass destruction, he will have to use all his years in the wilds combined with the street smarts he gained from drug dealing to try and survive this harsh and unforgiving land.
