Born in 2910[2], Brock Marik was the eldest son of Iris Marik[3][4] and the third Captain-General to rule the Free Worlds League in a single year.[5]

Described as a bellicose, iron-willed individual,[5] Brock Marik was the 45th Captain-General of the Free Worlds League and was considered to be more akin to his uncle, Paul Marik than his mother.[2] Brock had intended to make his mother one of his chief advisors, an action that might have had a profound effect on the future of the Free Worlds League,[5] but his reign lasted just eighteen months.[4]

Brock Marik enjoyed leading his troops, something that doubtless fueled the comparisons between him and Paul Marik, and he began his reign in 2947 by touring the realm.[2] He was touring Van Diemen IV in 2948 when the military base he was visiting was firebombed by Capellan forces[6] and was killed during the attack.[4][5] It has never been confirmed if his death during the attack was the result of deliberate planning or merely a coincidence.[4]

Brock Marik was succeeded by his brother Thaddeus.
