Duncan Marik (29863037) was the nephew of Captain-General Janos Marik. He assassinated his uncle and briefly seized the throne of the Free Worlds League in 3035.

Early Life and Military Career[edit]

Duncan was the only son of Janos' sister, Sylvia Marik, who died in childbirth. He showed a natural aptitude for both piloting a BattleMech and military command, and quickly went through the ranks of the FWLM. By 3025, he was the Supreme Commander of the Marik Militia regiments.[citation needed]

Despite his successes (or perhaps because of them), Janos never looked at Duncan as a potential heir, seeing too much of Janos' rebellious brother, Anton Marik, in his nephew. Duncan never bothered to conceal his ambition for the throne.[citation needed]

In 3019, he gave a speech in Parliament supporting his uncle's decision to hire Wolf's Dragoons after Anton's Civil War.[1]

He had one son, Carlos Marik, born in 3034. Due to his parentage, Carlos had a difficult life, but managed to rise to the rank of Captain in the 25th Marik Militia. He later considered leaving the military for politics after repeatedly being passed over for further advancement.[2]
