Temperment: Easy-going, always polite, rarely angry, something of an egotist (usually playfully), sarcastic sense of humor, demands perfection from the machines he works on, but knows that sentients won't ever reach perfection, so he's not too hard on failure, tries to use it as a learning experience.

Dislikes: Holodramas by Stanley Baldwin, Bolian Cuisine, Incompetance in Command.
Hobbies: Acting, singing, fencing, reading, repairing anything he can get his hands on that's mechanical, and flying small spacecraft.

mechanic, also somewhat skilled (despite his size) in swordplay.
Additionally, he's qualified to fly anything smaller than a starship.
Enrolled 2375. Graduated 95th of 843, 2379. Reprimanded for
Insubordination in Junior year. Commendation for Original Thinking in Senior
Marcus did not take to Academy life at first. His natural
desire to be in the spotlight had lent itself to a fair degree of ego, and made
him appear arrogant and conceited to his fellows. The fact that he could
back up his mechanical claims did not help matters. In fact, he soon found
himself in several physical altercations with Cadet Stanley Baldwin, who was an
aspiring novelist. Baldwin was eventually drummed out of the Academy, and
found a successful career as a holodrama writer, none of which Marcus can abide
to this day. Earned the nickname "Face" after his Freshman
roommate found a production poster from Hopkins in Marcus' personal belongings.
He didn't mind it so it stuck. He was cited for insubordination in his
Junior Year for voluably disagreeing with his commander on a training
simulation. Though he believes still that his opinion was right, the way
he went about expressing it earned him a permanent reprimand. The next
year, it was his turn to command engineering in the simulator. This time,
he tried his suggestion, and was given a commendation for original thinking.
This further served to spur his ego that he could do no wrong, as did his
graduation in the top 100 of his class, and his instatement as a Lt. J.G right
out of the Academy.
