Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Mark is hot headed and not always the most pleasant to be around. He is enthusiastic and immature at the best of times. He enjoys watching things burn and blowing things up. Mark can't handle sitting around doing nothing with his time and makes him even more ill tempered than he already is. He can often be seen lost in thought, most likely thinking about how great it would be to rig some object with explosives. He can stay relatively calm during combat environments and enjoys the thrill of it. He has extreme trouble making friends after he watched his best and only friend die. Painting and smoking are some of the only things that can calm him when he is not fighting because it requires a lot of concentration. Mark enjoys drinking and fighting as he sees it as a very manly thing to do. He retains the disdain for the Nepleslian government that was implanted in his mind during his time with the reds and through time has come to view it as not quite so bad. Mark suffers from leporiphobia (the fear of evil mutant bunny rabbits)

  • Likes: Drinking, smoking, fighting, listening to music, swimming
  • Dislikes: Complaining, people that can't do their job right, cowards, stuck up officers, idiots
  • Goals: To give 100% and then some in every task, to become an officer




Mark was created by Nepleslian Research and Manufacturing, at the time called the Nepleslian Retrofitting and Maintenance, in the year YE 29. He was trained in New Detroit and was taught the basic skills needed to survive. During power armor training, Mark was supplied with a Crooked Demon, which proved to be highly uncomfortable but the only thing he could fit in, where he showed to be more than proficient in its use.

He was cut across his right cheek by a piece of shrapnel when it skimmed across his face during a raid by the greens late in YE 33. During the raid, Mark's lungs were considerably damaged by a gas attack (he wasn't in his power armor and was too slow to get his mask on) and left him in a medical bay on oxygen until he received cybernetic lungs from Claymere Cybernetics Unlimited. He watched his best and only friend, Nick, die from the same gas attack and never quite got over it.

Mark returned and remained on standby until he defected in the year YE 34 after the realization that the Reds and their ideology was corrupt and where ultimately going to fail and joined the Nepleslian Space Marine Corps. After being trained to the marines standards, as the Reds trained their troops differently, he participated in power armor training. He had some trouble during power armor training at first due instinctively reacting as he would with his old armor. Mark went to demolition training shortly after leaving power armor training.



Mark reinforced the troops onboard the NMX ship halfway through their battle with a large crab-type. The squad went on to secure the ship capturing the NMX soldier Emi and freeing the Yamataian prisoner Mayumi. Mark gained a minor wound in a knife fight with a squid which caused him to hallucinate and believe his squad leader was a big black man named Bubba.

Into Steel

The squad participated in friendly war games with a group of Yamataians before things turning into a Neps vs. Cats CTF match. An all-out fight to the death occurred in the simulation leading several members of the squad to be severely injured before the sim was shut down mid-battle. Returning to the real work, the Marines found themselves in a bad spot as militants were assaulting them with the only armaments being their sidearms. After defeating the Militants, the group acquired Yamataian power armor and fought through various halls and rooms until they came across a cyber-neko. Not remembering most of the battle, the only thing Mark is for certain of is that it cost him half of an arm.

The squad conducted a raid on what appeared to be a manufacturing facility, but once inside it was revealed to be housing secret biological experiments on the Elefrins there. Mark and Alec secured several datapads while receiving minor injuries in the ensuing close quarters battle as well as the destruction of the facility by orbital bombardment. During debrief, PVT Mark Villines was promoted to Private First Class.



Mark is proficient in basic radio operation and procedures and can send and receive transmissions through headsets, power armor, ground vehicles, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. Mark is fluent in Nepleslian. He can speak and write it correctly and efficiently and can issue orders under fire. He is also proficient in all types of rudimentary communications including flashing lights and hand signals. Mark has trouble filing reports as he isn't much of a writer and is at a loss of words whenever its time to write.


Mark received intensive hand-to-hand combat training (primarily focused on disabling and/or killing opponents) and has followed up that knowledge with a rigorous training program. Weapons he is trained in include pistols of all types, knives, grenades (and other forms of explosive weaponry) and rifles of all kinds. Marks in excellent physical shape and has considerable endurance. Mark is also capable of piloting land-based power armors but depends on the on board AI to do anything advanced

Strategy (Tactics/Discipline)

He knows the importance of teamwork on the battlefield, has been intensively trained in discipline and morale, and is able to recognize the command structure even while under extreme pressure. Mark is also able to recognize ambush points. He knows basic math in order to calculate distances and such and can use a tactical map.

Art and Vocations (Painting)

Mark taught himself to paint in his spare time and is capable of creating nice looking fruit bowls and a fat Mona Lisa using the principles of depth and shadows.


Mark can create several different kinds of explosives to suit different purposes. He is capable of disarming most bombs he comes across, set them, and detonate them. Mark is able to properly assess charge placement for the desired level of destruction.
