Reputation: Slowly making a career out of his talent and education, Marco had been on his way to becoming the sous chef of "The Aroma", a four-star Michelin restaurant situated in Jersey City, just outside New York. A few months before being picked up by the Project, he had come under the influence of a group of unethical, rebel street artists in the city. There he created giant murals over dilapidated walls, and soon those images were plastered on corporate buildings and sending messages to the public without his realization; he had just wanted to make art. After a supposedly-safe stunt gone too far, he lost his job, and was offered the start of a new life with Project TEDISON. People at his work say that he kept to himself most of the time. He was not home with his wife much, but ventured the city preforming card tricks to reluctant strangers and drank his "sorrows" away. Those who know him would describe him as neurotically awkward.
A. Area of potential: ASESTETIC EYE - Marco advertised as a freelance photographer in his free time, and had been hired to photograph weddings and shoot for small magazines. His dishes at "The Aroma" were often praised for their impressive arrangements. The street artists took notice of him after seeing the artwork he personally created for the restaurant.
B. Area of potential: GOOD HAND-EYE COORDINATION - Needle-threading comes easy to Marco. As a child, he picked up piano which became a life-long hobby. As a teenager, he preformed card tricks that relied on the sleight of hand (and played way too many video games). It is on record that he had fired a pistol once, and it hadn't missed. It was no surprise to his family that he won culinary competitions for completing the most plate arrangements in record time. Oh, and did I mention he's ambidextrous?
C. Area of potential: RESPECTS BOUNDARIES - Basically... he likes to mind his own damn business. This quality may be useful in an environment with restricted-access and potential public unrest. While some may see Marco's aloofness as a negative thing, his lack of curiosity had saved him a few times growing up in the tougher neighborhood. He may had modeled his habits after his family's belief that they were better than their surroundings. Little Marco had not minded as he played with his deck of cards up in his room.
D. Known Risk Factor: HAS A BAD LEG - Marco walks with a slight limp that is not entirely noticeable...unless he needs to run. His running looks a bit like a gallop, and he is not capable of moving faster than a slow jog. Due to the nature of his injury, the only way to fix his leg would be to replace his leg for a cybernetic one. However, he refuses to get the procedure done despite people reaching out to him on the matter.
E. Known Risk Factor: NEGATIVE ATTITUDE - He does not seem happy, and it takes someone special, or something very amusing to make him laugh. At times it seems like he can complain about anything and everything. He also tends to catastrophize the worst. He appears to have his own interests in mind, and is not prone to go along with the crowd just for kicks.
F. Known Risk Factor: A BIT SELFISH - Marco is likely to throw those he doesn't know well under the bus to save his own life. He fears death, and does not have good impressions about clones. He can also be rude and sarcastic sometimes - he had only a few friends back on Earth, and only his closest friends held some significance in his life.
*Other: Marco was in a resentful three-year marriage up until leaving for project TEDISON. Although he was looking for a way out, he had stayed loyal with her (even though she hadn't) until leaving. They "gave him no choice", he had claimed despite being allowed to bring family members with him. It was difficult for him, and he regrets not taking her with him.
