|Chronological and Political Information|
Marcus Morgan was an infamous Corellian smuggler who had been a mentor and father-figure to many young up and coming smugglers. He also had a reputation for being a charming ladies’ man and had several children by multiple mothers, some of which he did not even realize exist.
Marcus Morgan was born in the Blue Sector of Coronet City on Corellia to Jerrod and Sonja Morgan. His father was an outlaw tech who specialized in starship modifications, while his mother was a maid for one of the area’s flophouses. His father was typically intoxicated and occasionally abusive to Marcus and his mother. To escape the abuse, Marcus and his street friends would frequent the starport. They would watch and listen to the free-traders as they conducted their business or traded tall-tales of their adventures.
After one beating too many at the hands of his father, Marcus and a couple of his friends stole a YG-4210 transport and headed for the Outer Rim. They would ply the space lanes of the Trailing Sectors and beyond; transporting passengers and supplies between worlds such as: Sullust, Elrood, Sevarcos, Llanic and Socorro.
His friends would soon leave Marcus for more stable careers, while Marcus started gaining the reputation of a successful smuggler and pirate. With is growing reputation, Marcus could be found working the Trailing Sectors, the Outer Rim and Hutt Space. Even with all his travels, Marcus rarely saw anything more of the planets than what lay within a radius of five kilometers from the spaceports, and his contacts was mostly limited to spaceport functionaries, merchants, information brokers, and those in the pleasure professions.
When word of his father's death reached Marcus, he plotted a course back home to Corellia. He made sure his mother was well and bought her a new home. Marcus would make sure credits found their way into his mother's account and he would visit occasionally between smuggling runs.
Marriage and Family
After many years of womanizing and swearing he would never marry, Marcus fell in love with, Kataria Zayne, a beautiful sabacc dealer on Ord Mantell. They would marry and have a son named Wyatt while Marcus worked as a starship mechanic. But shortly after Wyatt was born, Marcus who was "suffering" from wanderlust began taking smuggling jobs. His absences created a rift in the marriage and soon Marcus and Kat would divorce with Wyatt remaining in his mother's custody.
Only a couple years later, Marcus started an affair with the galactic renown singer/actress Cassi LeRue. Marcus proposed to Cassi when they discovered she was pregnant with their daughter, Cassandra Jasmyne. Because Cassi traveled quite a bit herself, she did not mind that Marcus did as well. Although they did not always see eye to eye on how to raise CJ, they were a happy family for a few years. But Cassi would file for divorce when she discovered Marcus had a couple girlfriends at different spaceports. For awhile Cassi and Marcus shared custody of CJ, but CJ related to her father more and he was given sole custody.
Shortly after becoming a solo smuggler, Marcus traded the YG-4210 transport in for a YT-1760 freighter, which as been known as Kat's Pride and Lady Jasmyne plus several aliases.
Name a commodity and Marcus has smuggled it to somewhere. While mostly operating by himself, Marcus has done jobs with several other smugglers such as:
- Hallyy Cabrero
- Nahg Inrull
- Max "Mad Eye" Marrette
- Platt Okeefe
- Eddard Resset
- Malcolm Reynolds
- Han Solo & Chewbacca
- Jaq Sparrow
- Booster Terrik
Marcus’s daughter, CJ, spent her teen years growing up as an extra hand on her father's freighter. With her R2 astromech, Arfee, by her side, CJ would often look after the ship when Marcus went into ports during their freight runs.
Around age 17, CJ set out on her own once again leaving Marcus to run his ship solo.
Marcus met a young near-human named Dane Sandoval who was looking for work. Dane would work on the Lady Jasmyne as copilot and deckhand. Developing a close bond with the young lad over their many adventures, Marcus saw Dane as a second son. With that bond came a trust that allowed Dane to trust Marcus with his tale and true name of Graydon Strykia.
Marcus and Graydon met Corana Kord. Corana, was a young Gallenti Pirate Princess. Over a period of weeks, Corana traveled with Graydon and Marcus. Graydon learned that Corana was searching for her sister and assisted her in tracking down the younger Kord girl to Coruscant. Teaming up with Bren Inarro and Angella Chylde, Graydon and Corana led the daring rescue of Bryanna Kord from the hands of an unscrupulous Imperial bureaucrat. Graydon and Corana became separated in a fight in the districts of the undercity of Coruscant during their escape. Corana stayed behind to provide a distraction for Marcus, Graydon, Bryanna, and the young girl they rescued there, Britannia Hamin. Narrowly avoiding Imperial Guards and two Jedi Hunters that had been in pursuit of Bri and also had sensed Graydon, the group were able to leave Coruscant successfully.
Graydon and Bri remained with Marcus, continuing to work for him as they assisted Wyatt Morgan, Marcus’ son, with the smuggling of an Alliance Recon team from Caprica and also around Ord Mantell. Immediately after this, Marcus found out that his daughter, CJ Morgan, had had a run in with pirates near the Manchi Sector. Wanting to ensure that his daughter was safe, Marcus asked Graydon and Bri to hire on with CJ. Marcus imparted his wish that Graydon protect his daughter, which Graydon agreed to.
Once again flying solo and with his daughter being watched over by his former crew members, Marcus decided it was time to retire from smuggling. Marcus was still prone to wanderlust and still roamed the galaxy visiting his favorite stomping grounds. To support himself and his many vices, Marcus would still make the occasional 'milk run'.
When his friend, Mal Reynlds, told him about the Battle of Rotex, Marcus decided retirement was not for him after all. Marcus head for Phantom Station and began smuggling various supplies and commodities to the Imperial occupied Rotex.
When Graydon decided to find and gather his fellow Antrixians in hiding, Rena Traabo asked Marcus and Eddard Resset to act as liaisons for Graydon. Marcus and Eddard travelled to Mon Gazza disguised as Antrixians. While there they would funnel the Antrixian exiles to Phantom Station while attempting to weed out those who would use this as an opportunity to capture Graydon.
A group of Antrixians came to Mon Gazza seeking their new High Lord, but they were followed by the man Graydon used to call his brother. Reaper slaughtered everyone in the Mon Gazza bar and kidnapped an Antrixian infant and a young Human female. Marcus fought Reaper and his men the best he could. Marcus was no match for the power Reaper wielded and was mortally wounded. As Marcus lay dying, he rejoiced in many fond memories throughout his life with most of them centered around CJ. His last words were to ask a female Antrixian, who arrived as the battle was ending, to deliver a datapad to his daughter.
Appearance and Personality
Marcus had a jovial sense of humor. He loved his drink but not excessively and loved his women (probably excessively). Marcus tended to fight for the underdog, otherwise he prefered to talk or walk away than fight (unless his ship was insulted). He struggled with commitment and had only been committed to two things in his life: his daughter, CJ, and his ship.
