Personal History:

As a child, Marcus had great difficulty sleeping, often awoken by night terrors. After various therapy treatments from his concerned parents, he began to lie and said they had stopped when the doctors began suggesting electro-shock therapy to his parents. While he found that the presence of friends and daily interaction with them helped to abate the symptoms a bit, the resulting exhaustion was still enough to damage his activity, both academically and athletically. Tired of not feeling the confidence of a 'real man', either through business success brought about by studying or the physical strength of those around him, he joined the army, hoping training and helping his country would lessen his fears in the night.

In addition to the field combat training, Marcus received, his natural empathy made him something of an unofficial counselor for the soldiers he mingled with. However, about this time, something new began to occupy his nights. Strange dreams began coming to him, of him running from something (often monsters or enemy agents), and always towards a strange, metallic cube. He didn’t think much of it, glad that the night terrors were abating, and failing to realize the obsession he was slowly beginning to build with the cube. He began ‘acquiring’ bits and pieces of weapons from the armory, sometimes stealing them himself, but often convincing others he needed a spare for some minor chore. He began trying to combine these parts into the cube from his dreams, each iteration moving closer to the ideal as he was slowly possessed by mechanical skills not his own.

Over years, the slow disappearance of items certainly hadn't gone unnoticed, and Marcus was brought before the officers in 1957. Due to his relative popularity with the other troops, he was given the opportunity to explain himself instead of being labeled a spy and punished. The only cube with buttons was handed to him, and he was instructed to activate it. He protested, saying it did nothing, just like the last time he tried. However, before he could even finish his sentence a streak of energy erupted from the cube and formed a doorway between himself and the officers. Their comments on how he would be court-martialled and discharged fell on deaf ears as he slowly stepped through the portal, only to find himself in the cafeteria of a foundation facility.

He was quickly detained, and the cube taken from his possession. After interviews and psychological evaluation, it was decided he had nothing anomalous about him other than the effects that had been invading his dreams. He was put under observation for several months before being offered amnestics, or a position in the foundation.

Miscellaneous:

Marcus continues to have nightmares of fleeing from creatures toward strange, and alien devices. Though he can describe some of these, and occasionally has described a categorized scp unknown to him, has not yet felt compelled to build any of them.
