Personal History:

Marcus O'Reilly was born in 1930 in the woodlands of Vermont, where he learned to hunt and play with his friends and family. When he was 9, his father and uncle left for WWII. Only one of them made it back.
Unbeknownst to young Marcus, his uncle had been recruited by the CIA, which often took him away from the family.

However, whenever Uncle Stevie was in town, he and Marcus would spend all their time hunting, playing with knives, and hiding in the forest. What seemed like fun and games for Marcus was, in reality, a way for his uncle to train him and make sure his nephew didn't fall in whatever war came next.

O'Reilly never bothered much with formal education, instead focusing on practical knowledge, street smarts, as some say.

When Marcus turned 19 he joined the army, where he was known for having an excellent rating on stealth missions. He was later recruited by the Foundation, when one of his assignments interfered with their own plans. He was caught in a crossfire and taken back to Site-77. After recovering from his injuries, he volunteered to stay and join the MTF unit and keep the world safe from dangerous items and creatures.

Miscellaneous:

Marcus is extremely uncomfortable entering any body of water where he can't see his feet. Boats are unacceptable if he can tell that there are waves. He has similar struggles with air travel.
