Stray is a Portuguese Citizen, born on May 25th, 2011. He was known for being a very active citizen and for constantly switching military units. In the beginning, he was a big troll, but with time he becomes a more serious player.
What is eRepublik
Mark Stray first heard for eRepublik from his RL friend - Henrique Buescu. When Henrique Buescu told him about the game, he wasn't very interested... however, other RL friends soon started playing, such as Vsada,juckms and alexdrem, so he finally joined after a few months.
Once he started playing this game, he realized there were lots of parties who supposedly defended the same type of politics and he wondered why. He was told by some experienced players to play this for a month and he would realize why. In 5 days he realized there were armies who controlled parties, most notably FARP, who controlled 2 parties. This led him to troll FARP plenty of times.
In a sudden twist, he decided to spy on FARP by joining them, while trolling the anti-FARP crowd for the sudden twist. In FARP he met people, who he would become friend's with, most notably death rider, OMAGAD and Mrs. Hazelnut. He served as a spy for the Ministerio da Magia, to whom he delivered his reports by the end of the day. He, however, would only spend 3 days in FARP, leaving without a warning.
After being lost for some time, he joined a new army, SPA, but left a few days later when he realized he couldn't keep his money while being there. Once he left, he went to Havoc Legion, and spent 2 months in there.
Meanwhile, in politics, he joined(PLP), a party which had been controlled by FARP in the past, but became independent after death rider left FARP (he was the PP of the party at the time).
Mark Stray would also become the president of PLP after death rider became absent. He won the elections in a controversial fashion, though, after having conversations in the IRC of him supposedly buying votes in public (although he says he never really bought any), which led him to receive insults such as "corrupted"... He faced the insults by saying that he was joking, and apologized to his party for playing a joke with such stupidity.
He managed to put 4 party members in the Congress, with the management of votes. He also supported Obadia's run for the country presidency, although he lost. Later, he joined FAP and managed to enter the government as an intern in MoFA and MoD departments.
