Mark was born in a rural area of Worcestershire, United Kingdom. His father was a farmer, primarily producing high yield crops as an upper-market alternative to replicated food, and was perhaps surprisingly, rather successful at this business. By the time Mark was 8, the family owned and managed four farms, totalling over 2,000 acres. Wanting to stay near the businesses, but no longer being in a position to have to run the farms, the family moved into a large house in the City of Worcester.
He was an average student, never really excelling at anything, but showing a little talent for maths and science. Really, history was where his heart was, but his niche, the history of warfare, was not often taught and so this interest went unfilled. He did captain the soccer team from ages 11-14 and he would sign semi-professional terms with New Morton City at the age of 18.
Mark first showed an interest in exploration at school, being able to make school visits to Utopia Planetia, Tycho City and Mars Colony. It was only a matter of time until he applied for Starfleet Academy.
He did not shine at the Academy (although did play for his year's first soccer eleven), finishing in the lower 30th percentile of the year. He would find his ability to concentrate on a very complex task somewhat lacking and this flaw dogged his studies.
