Chief Medical Examiner, Carson Medical
Born in Birkhoff alongside his younger twin sister Meredith to Violet and Charles Hale.
Meredith mysteriously vanished 20 years ago and Markus still holds that she is alive.
Violet is a nurse at Carson Medical.
Charles was a Navy Engineer, he was killed in a mugging while stationed in Korea.
The Hales controlled a shipping company with a fleet of ships and trucks. Markus inherited this company from his grandfather when he was 30 both of his paternal grandparents died naturally the following year.
Violet’s parents Meryl and Claus Elderwood both come from old wealth and while displeased with Violet’s choice to move to the west coast they have now set their sights on Markus, pressuring him to join their social circle. This has become a point of contention as they have also begun match making attempts when it became apparent that Markus would otherwise be married to his work.
Evangeline Astor is the latest woman introduced to Markus. Violet asked Markus to humor his grandparents so for he went for her. If anything comes of this has yet to be decided.
