Mark Fischbach, better known as Markiplier, is an american YouTuber and close friend of Jacksepticeye. He has done multiple videos with Jack, such as Gmod and The Forest, and have been in multiple fanfictions such as: Septiplier Away.
Markiplier was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, United States.
Markiplier has black hair, and is commonly seen wearing glasses or contacts. He originally had black hair, but agreed to dye it pink if he raised a certain amount of money for charity. Jack also agreed to this, saying he would dye his hair green as well. He dyed his hair pink in 2015, then blue in 2016, red in 2016 and finally dyed it back to black on New Year's Eve, 2017.
Jack had been a fan of Markiplier for a long time. Mark had been such a great influence to Jack that he decided to start making his own videos on YouTube. In his early videos, you could see that they were very clearly made in a 'Markiplier' style.
Their first interaction was April 10th 2014, when Mark followed Jack on Twitter. Jack Tweeted out "Holy sh*t! @markiplier just followed me!! I'm like a little giddy girl right now." After this, Mark apparently Direct Messaged Jack saying that he made some great videos. They started talking, and the next day, Jack asked to collaborate. Their first video together was in the game Gmod Sandbox, a few days later. The video was uploaded April 24th 2014.
They started collaborating more frequently, and soon became good friends. Mark and Jack have gone to many conventions together, Jack appearing on his panel 'Markiplier & Friend's' at PAX more than once
Fans, however, had started to ship these two in a figurative relationship. Their most common ship name is Septiplier, a combination of their usernames. They have joked about this before, but always made it clear that there were no more than platonic feelings for the other. After erotic fanfictions started being noticed by Mark and Jack, the two stopped joking about it as frequently, especially after Mark started dating his girlfriend. It was rumoured that she and Wiishu were sent death threats by Septiplier shippers, but that has never been confirmed.
There was a point in their friendship where Mark and Jack rarely associated with each other. They stopped collaborating and interacting on Twitter like they normally did. In fact, the only collab they did in this time was on PewDiePie's channel. It was assumed that they had a falling out for some unknown reason. Although it was rumoured that this was because of Septiplier, this was denied by Jack in a livestream, saying that a ship could not ruin their friendship. However, they did start collaborating again, and it seems like things have gone back to normal as they are collaborating more frequently.
