Name: Marko Janković
Birthplace: Liberty City, USA
Marko was born in Liberty City in 1987. His family was originally from Croatia, during the time of Yugoslavia. After president Tito's death in 1980, a lot of ethnic tensions arose in Yugoslavia. In mid-1986, Marko's mother found out that she is pregnant. Since it was too dangerous to keep living in Yugoslavia, Marko's parents immigrated into the US later that year.
Before Marko's parents moved to LC, his dad served in the Yugoslav People's Army. He taught Marko how to use weapons, how to handle himself in hand-to-hand combat etc. Thanks to that, Marko is now skilled in fighting. Marko graduated from high school in 2005 and went to college, but dropped out. He later worked at many minimum wage jobs he was unsatisfied with. Marko then turned to crime. He started off his career by robbing convenience stores, repossessing cars, smuggling etc. At some point, he became affiliated with all kinds of gangs in LC.
In 2008, Marko started working as a hired gun for the Pegorino family. However, after Jimmy Pegorino died, he cut his ties with the Pegorinos and met Nemanja Jovanović, a Serbian gangster. Marko and Nemanja started working together and kept doing so for the next few years.
In early 2013, Marko, Nemanja and some henchmen, including Derrick McReary robbed a big bank in Liberty City, stealing over ten million dollars. However, in the process, Derrick was killed, and Nemanja was arrested and taken into custody. Marko hired a small group of criminals and planned to bust Nemanja out of prison. He succeded in doing so. Marko and Nemanja soon started planning to leave the city because of the heat from the LCPD. However, in the meantime, Marko found out that his parents were killed by two members of the Russian mafia: Vladimir Maksimov and Ivan Mihailov. Marko tracked them down and found them in Dukes. He killed Vladimir and Ivan, avenging his parents' deaths, but soon discovered that Kenny Petrovic put a bounty on his head.
Later in 2013, Marko met CT, a gangbanger from Bohan, who has ties to the Chamberlain Gangster Families in Los Santos. CT introduced Marko to Lamar Davis, a member of the CGF. They became friends on LifeInvader. Lamar convinced Marko to come to LS and keep going with his career there. Marko decided to move there. However, he found out that Nemanja was killed by Kenny Petrovic himself. Marko vowed to get revenge. He soon tracked down Petrovic to a warehouse in Broker, confronted him there and murdered him, avenging Nemanja's death and getting rid of his bounty.
A few days later, Marko packed up his stuff, went to the LC International Airport and got on a plane to Los Santos. He soon landed there and met up with Lamar, who showed him around the city. Marko continued with his career there, doing work for some major players of LS, robbing some more stores, repossessing some more cars etc. He soon made enough money to buy a luxury apartment and a fancy car. Marko kept going with his career, and started planning his next big score.
