The MARCUS Agency was the creation of one enigmatic man: Leminkänen Hachan Marcus. The world knows him simply as "Mister Marcus." His origins are obscure. According to most, Mister Marcus has been around "forever". Hence, it is widely believed that he is half-elven, though whether this is true or not is unknown to the general public.
While the MARCUS Agency has been around as long as Mister Marcus himself, it didn't explode into public view until early in the Great War, during which time Mister Marcus' activities became critical to the allies. Though billed as an intelligence agency, much of the work done during that time had more to do with the protecting the IMMC operational plans than collecting information about the Confederation.
Marcus is often criticized for serving his own ends, and sometimes even for putting profit above people. But it must be acknowledged that, for the man who built the largest intelligence operation in the world, his influence on post-war global politics has been small, and the MARCUS Agency's net worth doesn't even make the top 1,000 list of the world's largest companies. It is said that Mister Marcus himself has opined: "A thousand opportunities for wealth and power have passed me by because a world in which I have nothing more than power and wealth is not a world in which I want to live."
