A troubled young man, who grew up near the capital. The son of a farmer, he had no interest what so ever in growing anything. He was entranced by the merchant guards. When they arrived he always talked to them about learning how to use various weapons. He quickly learned the basics of common swords. His favourite were Katanas, Longswords, Shortswords. He learned the use of bows from his uncle, who spent more time hunting than anything else.
When he turned sixteen his father felt he would be better off without his son doing nothing but 'play with weapons' and eat. So he was thrown out and walked for months with no aim. He lived off the land until he met an Aes Sedai and her Warder. He spoke to them at length and was advised to go to Tar Valon and to try his luck with becoming a Tower Guard or Warder. Filled with hope and told to head East to Saldea and then join a group going to Tar Valon.
While the group was travelling in the shadow of the Black Hills they were raided several times. During the first time Mareco accurately placed 3 arrows into raiders and out of need he took a katana from one of his foes. During the other attacks he joined the rest of the guards in close combat taking a few scratches as a result of his agility and speed.
