Marie enjoys reading romance and adventure novels. When she travels around, her dog Michael is always with her. One of her defining qualities is the warmth and emotion she feels with natural settings such as the ocean, the wind and summer sun, and even the peaceful nature of the forest. Since she previously wasn't able to go outside due to her condition, she would imagine being at these places in her stories. When she finally met her brother, her dream was to walk along the beach in a beautiful sunset with him. Although implied as somewhat frail, being with her brother has given her strength and happiness in her life.
