She was known to enjoy falconry.
Therese was a good child, always obedient to her parents. Her father, Captain-General Janos Marik, wanted her to marry a prominent official within the Regulan Free States, Corbin Tkaczuk, to foster an alliance. She refused and, in her only act of rebellion, eloped with then-Captain Jeremy Brett. Brett was an artillery commander who was described as "handsome" and "dashing", but he was not the man her father wanted her to marry. Therese was publicly disowned by her father and Brett found his commission cashiered.
Therese Marik in 3067
Therese and her husband relocated to Khe Shang province on Tamarind. There, she became a staff officer with the Tamarind Defense Forces and he served as the commander for Khe Shang's static defenses. As early as 3025, Therese's "high virtues... endeared her to the populace".
The early 3030s saw an insurrection on Tamarind. The democratically-elected government of Prime Minister Otho Korituk was a disaster and the people were tired of it.In 3035, Therese was elected governor of Tamarind.
Marriage and children
Therese Marik married Jeremy Brett in 3008. They had two sons.
- Reginald Marik (b 3011- d. 3???)
- Photon Brett-Marik (b 3014 - d. 3??? ) was a military officer who succeeded his father as commander of Tamarind's troops.
After Thomas Marik became Captain-General in 3036 and the Andurien Crisis ended, Therese was welcomed back into the family. She stayed in relative obscurity, earning a reputation as "a skilled politician and administrator".

He was described as such, “ Tall and lanky like his father but with his mother's classical looks and raven hair, Photon Brett-Marik was every inch the martial Marik. ”
At Age of 47
Early Life & Career
As a nephew of Thomas Marik, but a member of a distaff branch of the family that was all but disowned, Photon did not seek to use the family name to his benefit. In order to ensure he received no special treatment, Photon enlisted in the Free Worlds League Military in 3033 under name "Urien Domei". He lived as Urien Domei for seventeen years.
In 3048, "Urien Domei" was promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel and executive officer of the Second Free Worlds Guards. He took part in a raid on the Federated Commonwealth world of Dixie in 3050 that mauled the Dixie Tamarind March Militia. He was awarded the Order of the Saber by the Captain-General for his actions. Captain-General Marik awarded it to Photon under his real name, shattering his persona.
Photon was promoted to Colonel and given command of the prestigious Second Free Worlds Guards in 3064.
In 3071, Duchess Therese Marik declared the Duchy of Tamarind independent from the Free Worlds League, named herself the political leader, and placed Photon in charge of all military assets, naming him Marshall to replace his assassinated father. In 3075, Photon coordinated an offensive with the Buena Archonette of the Lyran Alliance against the worlds of Poulsbo and Khon Kaen, both of which had been occupied by Circinus Federation and Word of Blake troops since mid-March. Photon's proposed plan of attack was agreed with the Buena Archonette on the 16th of May, and although the Tamarind and Lyran forces took heavy damage, the operation was a success. The Lyrans took Poulsbo while Tamarind claimed Khon Kaen.
