From the colony of Helphis Prime X4552, Mark lived in one of the cramped suburban cities that had recently sprung up in the colony's main continent. The continent was agricultural for the most part, but the last fifty years had shown industrial growth and population booms. Mark came in on the second wave of that population boom, born to a single mother and raised latter on by her and his step father who treated him just as if he was his own blood. Mark was an average student throughout his schooling, and had made his way through just fine.
After high school, he and his friends, Eron Mc Call, and Adam Quinn began to hang out more and more, blaring their heavy metal and punk music from their cars, smoking cigarettes, drinking, and fighting for most of the better part of a year and a half after high school. They began to pull a large group around them, and they became what was essentially a small time vigilante group within their town. They bashed adulterers, druggies, rapists, and anyone who was an overall prick to them or their families. They didn't have a name for their group, but not many people wanted to cross fists with them.
Mark's home front had deteriorated though, his relationship with his mother and stepfather becoming more and more tense as he'd come home from these runs with his friend's, unable to block out the rage at the things he'd seen, or the people he'd had to deal with. His little brother idolized him, and Mark tried his best to be there for the kid, making sure he didn't hate him for what he'd done. All of that aside, Mark was getting tired of the life he was living. He was tired of fighting and drinking and smoking, and felt like at the age of 18, he wouldn't walk the earth much longer. He needed a change, and he needed it fast.
He left his homeland on the colony, and got all the money he could, and flew out to the former Prison Colony of Aegis Deplha. There he found solace, living and working on the country property that a family named the Weirs owned. It took some hard work and getting used to as he adjusted to country life, and in plain fact, life away from home. He fell in love with the Weirs daughter, and after a year, they were engaged. It Two months before the wedding, the Xenos attacked, and began to wreak havoc all across the colony. Some of the Weyland Yutani Corporation forces landed on the colony to secure the mining stations they had there. When the whole of the Weirs family, including his fiance, Alice, was killed, Mark decided to take his next step, and join the W-Y Corp's military wing, and help to clean the galaxy up.
Same as above
"Gotcha fearless leader." Mark gave Carmine a mock salute as he gave them the 'orders'. He was just trying to take the piss out of him for a bit of fun, but other than that, it didn't matter. He walked over to the front row of sandbags and razor wire that had been set up. He was, once again, taking turrets up to the front row. The idea was to place one at each end of the front rows, because despite the protection that the sandbags and razor wire would give, they needed some extra insurance.
He set the turret up and began to turn on the motion sensors and making sure it was locked and loaded. It whirred over in Carmine's direction and Mark cursed.
"Fuck! Turn off! Turn off!" he quickly turned the power off on the turret to make sure that it didn't blow Carmine away in a blaze of hot lead. The turret slumped to sleep like a tired hunter and Mark sighed. Kneeling and taking a deep drag on his cigarette, tossing it away. Now all the main set ups were put up and he knew that the row of motion sensors was being set up 150 meters out.
"Next order of business..." he said walking into the peremeter and heading for the Waffle. "Get Gene the printouts."
He walked up the ramp again, and sat down at the terminal, setting his M41A1 on the seat beside him and swiveling the chair around to punch in the password and codes. He hummed his favorite song to himself as the computer began to print out the geography readouts.
"Fire! To begin with the dance of the dead! Blackened in the air!" he drummed to an imaginary drumset to the song in his head that was about nuclear fire. He hoped that nuclear fire wasn't going to end up being the issue with this battle. The sheets rolled out from the printer and he took them, tucking them up and walking out of the Waffle, rifle slung over his shoulder once again.
He could tell Gene was busy watching Carmine, so he stepped past her and set the readouts on the crates by her and went on his way back to the Waffle to grab floodlights. He carried them down his way and forwards to the front row of defenses. He didn't want to be back lit by them in the back row and become and easy target for some Pred head. He set one up in the center, turning it on and letting the piercing bright white light shine through the darkness, and setting the other up ten meters away. Once it was turned on, the light's beam met the other's further down the way.
He unlsung his pulse rifle, locked it away, and switched it off of safety. Holding it across his matte black body armor, he stood behind the front row of defenses and prepared himself to do sentry duty. He tucked a cigarette behind his ear for later, whispering, "This is going to be a boring ass stint."
