Character History[]

Mac, an Australian, is the brother of Robert Scorpio. The brothers were estranged when Mac first came to Port Charles, as Robert blamed Mac for the death of their parents. Eventually they patched up their differences and Mac was given guardianship of Robert's daughter Robin Scorpio when her parents were presumed dead. Mac had an adventurous past, but he became a solid citizen when he had the responsibility of raising his niece. Mac first ran a night club called The Outback and later became police commissioner in Port Charles, his brother's old job. He raised Robin, fighting her choice of boyfriends and then later helping her get through the crisis when she was diagnosed with HIV. Mac married Felicia Cummings Jones and raised her two daughters, Maxie Jones and Georgie Jones, as his own. As Felicia slept with both ex-husband Frisco Jones and fiance Mac at about the same time, she wasn't sure which of the two men fathered Georgie. When the biological father turned out to be Frisco, Mac still cared for the child as his own. Although they've kept "Jones" as their last name, Mac is the only father Georgie and Maxie have ever known. Mac's main role in Port Charles these days is as dad and police commissioner.
