Background - What is Marcus Teague’s background?

Born in America to an Irish man and an American mother, Marcus Teague started off life with a series of unfortunate events.
He was a NICU baby, born prematurely as the result of an alcoholic and smoker mother. His long-standing time in the NICU was a sore area of financial strain and general stress for his small family.
As he grew, his family experienced financial and general hardship, nearly ending up homeless a few times as his mother struggled to fight her addiction to alcohol, falling more into her smoking habits to try and combat the cravings. At first, this was blamed on awful job security and jobs that didn't pay much but over the years, Marcus's father began to shift his blame on the heavy medical bills that were a result of Marcus's time in the NICU.
These worsened when Marcus was about nine years old when his mother was diagnosed with stage four Leukemia. Without the funds for proper medical care, his mother's condition slowly worsened and she began to deteriorate as the cancer multiplied within her body.
She died within the next two years.
Her death shook the entire Teague family at its core. Shortly after her funeral, Marcus's father began to blame the entire incident on Marcus's birth, claiming that had he been 'born normal' they would have had plenty of funds to save her. He turned to heavy alcoholism to cope, becoming increasingly violent towards Marcus and his brother. It wasn't until nearly high school did his father start to raise his hand against him.
As the abuse turned physical, Marcus found himself falling behind in school. It wasn't long before he himself turned to alcohol and drugs to distract his mind.

Marx was the first of the gang members to find him when Marcus lit a small fire in the boy's bathroom to get out of class. Marx seemed to take pity on Marcus's situation, offering him comfort and cigarettes and chatting idly about things that didn't pertain to school or home.
Marcus quickly grew to enjoy Marx's company and felt as if he could trust the older boy so the moment Marx asked if Marcus wanted to join the gang, he agreed right away. It was only a matter of time before Marcus started dating Marx behind his father's back.
It didn't take long for Marcus to realize his mistake but by the time he came to his senses, it was too late to leave. He experienced a new kind of abuse at the hands of Marx, one more humiliating than the physical, emotional, and verbal abuse his father put him through. Though, Marcus doesn't consider what happens to him 'abuse', he believes the idea that Marx's advances just mean that he's loved and feels bad about when 'he makes Marx force himself onto him' thinking it's the mark of a bad boyfriend not to comply.

Unfortunately for Marcus, after a botched gang run, his father found out about it all in one fell swoop after having to come to bail Marcus out of jail.
The abuse doubled after that, the majority of his father's rage was directed at him rather than at his brother, Lucas. Lucas became the golden child, the 'only good egg in the house' and a 'promising soul' and was thus mostly spared from it.

Marcus decided he had enough of his home life after that and ran off to join Marx and the gang full-time, trading one abuse for another he found preferable.

He never tries to hide his abuse, he wears the scars, cuts, and bruises openly.

Happy ending with Jake orrrrr depressive ending with death???

Timeline is a little off, gotta work that out


Started off with a birth defect that twisted the bone in his leg but that was tossed in favor of the NICU addiction baby backstory.

His story was intertwined with Dayzed's characters after a few rp's.
