Marcus Robert Dixon was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Both of his parents were Jamaican immigrants. After graduating from high school, Dixon went on to Sarah Lawrence College in Yonkers, New York. He graduated from Sarah Lawrence with a Bachelors of Arts in Computer Science and then enlisted in the United States Marine Corps.
Upon completing recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, Dixon went on to the Marine Rifleman Course at the School of Infantry at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. After attending the Basic Reconnaissance Course, he was assigned to the 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion. Dixon was later assigned to a force reconnaissance platoon, where he rose to the position of an assistant team leader.
He left the Marine Corps after six years of service and began attending the MIT Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Very soon after earning his Master of Business Administration, Dixon obtained a position as an information technology business analyst at a Washington, D.C. investment bank while he simultaneously applied to join the Central Intelligence Agency.
Before he could join the Agency, he had to go through a thorough medical and psychological exam, a polygraph interview and an extensive background investigation. Upon successfully completing the entire application process, Dixon was accepted as a clandestine service trainee.
After an orientation period, he resigned from the investment bank and went on to the CIA's Special Training Center, Camp Peary - "The Farm," near Williamsburg, Virginia for intensive operational training. There, Dixon went through the Basic Operations Course, which trained him in so-called "operational intelligence" or "tradecraft" espionage skills. After completing the Clandestine Service Trainee Program, he was recruited into a newly-established and highly unconventional black ops division of the Agency named Special Directorate 6.
Mandated to retrieve and study military and industrial intelligence critical to U.S. superiority and survival, SD-6 marks a return to classical methods of unilateral espionage operations. Instead of relying on foreign human intelligence assets or filtering the world through satellites and antennas, its operatives physically infiltrate dangerous and sensitive enemy locations to gather the required intelligence by whatever means necessary. In other words, they go back to the nitty-gritty world of undercover spies out there in the field, risking their lives for the sake of taking a photograph or recording a conversation or copying a computer hard drive.
Funded by the CIA's black budget, SD-6's operations are not only highly classified, but also hidden from congressional oversight. That status authorizes its operatives to work outside the boundaries of international laws and treaties.
Upon joining SD-6, Dixon was given non-official cover status; meaning he is an operations officer without any official connection to the CIA and also without diplomatic protection if ever caught in an act of espionage. His cover is that he is an investment analyst employed by Credit Dauphine, a corporate bank in downtown Los Angeles that serves as the front company for SD-6.
As a field operations officer, Dixon is sent on clandestine and covert espionage assignments. By assuming a false identity and utilizing the most advanced surveillance and combat technology for the aggressive collection of stored data in hostile territories, he goes undercover to infiltrate secure installations and seize critical intelligence without leaving a trace. SD-6's black ops status allows him to disregard many laws, agreements, or frameworks of ethical behavior in order to accomplish a mission. However, if Dixon were to ever be captured or killed, the CIA would completely disavow him and deny he was affiliated with the U.S. government at all.
Marcus Dixon's exemplary work has proven him to be one of the most extraordinary officers in the CIA's employ.
