Parker is one of the main residential and mining sectors of Tharsis, named after the hero of the First Martian Revolution, Parker.


Parker is created by the Earth Defence Force soon after the downfall of the Ultor Corporation. Due to its relatively high amounts of resources and small size, the sector gradually acquires a population of poor, working-class miners. Faced with the depletion of Earth's resources and growing pressure from the many corporations controlling Mars, the EDF gradually increase their control over Parker, including outposts, a sensor field east of the main sector, and the separation of northern Parker into the Free Fire Zone.

The reincarnated Red Faction, seeking to remain under the radar, set up their initial base of operations in northern Parker. However, after the EDF presence in the sector began to threaten security, the Red Faction abandon the base and built a new safehouse south of the previous base site.

With the arrival of Alec Mason in 2125, the Red Faction is able to strike back at the EDF, destroying much of the sector's infrastructure and mining facilities. Eventually, Parker is liberated when Mason destroys the sensor field, allowing rebel convoys to enter Dust undisturbed.


Following the liberation of Mars, Parker becomes part of the new Colonist state until its destruction in 2168 during the Cultist War and is left abandoned afterwards.
