History
Markon grew up in the scottish city of Dundee only 60 miles north of the capital Edinburgh. He was from a proud military family, the career of choice was starfleet marines.

He has a younger brother named for his father 2nd LT Steven Markon serving as a platoon commander. Chris’s younger sister Camilla is a young doctor taking a career after her mother.

His father was a General in the Marines until 5 years ago and his mother was a Commander and XO of a medical ship.

Chris initially joined starfleet academy and graduated from the academy top of the class in 2388 and was headhunted into the marine corps due to his family heritage he agreed to join and went through one years combat training and a further year in specialised training.

Chris was then assigned to a unit and fought ferociously during 2 years of the dominion war. There was an incident during one of his first missions which has caused much mental scarring.

Chris was promoted to 2nd LT following this campaign and whilst on earth visiting his family took a combat unit tactics training course which lasted a year. On leaving earth he was posted as a Squad Leader on a marine outpost near Bajor.

During the following years Chris was attached to a highly secretive unit conducting black ops during the borg wars. Once victory had been declared in 2400 Chris was given a sabatical of one year, during this time he lived with his family training intensly, climbing at every opportunity he could.

He had grown tired of his work in black ops, a decade of fast paced and incredibly dangerous work was catching up with him. Having not gained any promotion or commendation in the previous decade he was effectively starting his career from scratch so he returned to earth where a posting was available on the USS Vendetta as a Detachment Commanding Office.

Since Chris had never served with a detached unit he decided it would be an interesting change and took the position in 2401.
