As Cordelia noted, Mark was kind of raised to imitate Miles.  And Mark's
a lot less about forward momentum; he could be happy in a room being an
ImpSec analyst.

OTOH Miles was shaped by a fragile childhood, so it's possible the Mark
is closer to what they "should" be like.  Not that either one got
anything like a normal childhood... now there's an experiment.  Clone
Miles and raise him on Beta or something, in some happy family with no
physical trauma.
