Born in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand, Marcus was the second child to Jorge and Heather Kravchik. It was in his formative years that Marcus took after his mother, with an intense desire to understand how machines worked or what it took to break items. While some parents would have chastised their child, Heather instead redirected Marcus, teaching him the scientific process and starting his education early in order to focus her son and more importantly save the electronics in the house from his curiosity.
Math and Physics were a focus from an early age for Marcus, but he never truly excelled in school outside of these fields, more of a midling student with fields of intense capability.
By the time Marcus was in secondary school he was already building devices of his own making, typically from discarded equipment he found by raiding a local recycling facility or visits to his mother’s place of employment – the University of Canterbury.
It was also in secondary school were Marcus met Lillian and Josephine, two women who would end up being constant companions from then on. All three of them insist on a different origin story for their relationship, ranging over a three month period of their third year at secondary school.
High school gave way to tertiary education and on a throw away comment in their final year, Marcus was the one to implant into the group subconscious that joining Starfleet might be the thing to do. It would get them the education they wanted, a chance to play with some pretty amazing toys and a heck of an adventure to boot. And so in 2245 Marcus Kravchik joined Starfleet Academy in the Engineering track.

Marcus is a generally laid back individual, prefering to go with the flow most of the time, assuming his work allows him to. In that regard he is a stickler for ensuring that work done is of the finest quality and done correctly the first time in order to allow for task to be done once and not need repeating constantly.
