She enjoyed the warm feeling of helping people and the rewarding sensation of watching things grow thus Gardening was a major pastime in her young life. It went without saying that she adored children and she often volunteered at a local orphanage. as soon as she was of age she went to the guild to see how many children she was allowed. She was crushed when that little red number came up 0. She was not allowed to have any children. Though this disheartened her for a time she picked herself up and vowed that she would start her own orphanage to look after children that had nowhere else to go. She met Cassiopeia while working at the stiff drink as a waitress. The two became fast friends and after learning about her friends tendency to overwork herself Marie often took on the role of looking after her.
