The Hull took a battering, to be sure. But without my walls, all of us would've been killed long ago. They call me the Mariner, shipwright, handyman, and the only one keeping the Harbor afloat. Well, besides Captain Avery.”
Background[edit | edit source]
A long-time inhabitant of the Island, the Mariner is a native and is technically the sole owner of the last homestead on Mount Desert Island: Far Harbor. When the Island started pushing its inhabitants away, she allowed them to resettle on her land - but generations of fierce independence and functional anarchy also bred a specific kind of egoism: Since Far Harbor is her land, she's responsible for maintaining its defenses. Thankfully, she's a talented mechanic and her Hull has kept the demons of the Island away... Thus far.
The Mariner's a social soul and feels responsible for the refugees gathered on her dock. She despises the bickering and feuding that seem to dominate in their relations, particularly Allen Lee's hate mongering. She's still driven to protect them and make the Hull the best post-War fortification in the region - not merely because of her ambition and desire to protect others, but because she knows that without her, there will be no one to maintain it - and since she has a terminal condition, the Mariner's working on a clock.

Appearances[edit | edit source]
- The Mariner: "The Hull took a battering, to be sure. But she wouldn't be standing at all if it weren't for you. They call me the Mariner, shipwright, handyman, and the only one keeping the Harbor afloat. Well, besides Captain Avery."
(The Mariner's dialogue)
- The Sole Survivor: "Why doesn't anyone help you?"
The Mariner: "Each Harborman is the captain of his own ship. Worked fine for generations on the homesteads. Your land, your rules. But when the island pushed them onto my dock, one-by-one, the ungrateful bastards expect me to look after "my land." Even though they're squatting on it, like wretches."
(The Mariner's dialogue)
