stigma

Here is my best explanation:

'mark' is the definition.
('stigma' can be a synonym of 'mark')

'greek character taking time' is the wordplay.
'greek character' becomes 'sigma' (letter from the Greek alphabet**).
'taking' indicates putting letters inside.
'time' becomes 't'.
'sigma' going around 't' is 'STIGMA'.

'to make' is the link.
