Marilyn was born and raised in a small town in Arkansas. She was the youngest of five and an only daughter causing her to have bit of a strive to constantly prove herself equal. There her family went camping every weekend and her father taught her how to hunt and skin animals. At first she hated it but as she grew up she learned to love it all and actually started looking forward to the weekly camping trips. She started to see it more as a competition, trying to outdo her brothers in nearly every thing that they tried and besting a few of them.
When she turned 11 her mother grew gravely ill, after several long months of seeing her mother in a way she never wanted to the woman passed away. The camping trips stopped after that, her father losing the light in his eyes and never being the same. Still, she would sometimes run off into the woods and get away from the stress of her family life after that.
When she turned 18 she went to a school out of state, wanting to experience the world for herself. She moved to New York City, Brooklyn to be exact. It was there that she learned of her love of mixed martial arts and cage fighting. She started constantly visiting the gym and becoming extremely adept at the sport. She won several tournaments making a name for herself in the circles that followed the amateur circuits. After she received her baccalaureate in business she returned back south.
After living at her father's house for a month she couldn't take being treated like a child again and found a place in Louisiana. She stayed there for a few months, enjoying the autonomy yet close distance to home. However the relative peace she was experiencing ended when the infection broke out. Ever since then she's been scavenging for food and supplies, not staying in any place too long for fear of being attacked by the infected.
Marilyn is brash and impulsive. She was always the life of a party before the world died, known for being fun and direct. Never censoring herself, she says some of the rudest things and describes it away as part of her 'keeping it real'. Often described by others as a tomboy she is a big fan of physical challenges and was always hiking, biking, swimming, running, and anything to stay in shape. She was a student but had a job as an MMA fighter and was quickly rising in the ranks of her division, being utterly ruthless at the sport. When she doesn't like someone she lets them know to their face. Extremely short tempered it doesn't take much to get her upset and when she is upset it doesn't take much to get her to start swinging at whatever is bothering her.
She can be very arrogant, often overestimating what she can actually do. This usually left her with a very stressful weekend of large course loads and social events she promised to go to. However, in this new world it has almost gotten her killed several times. She is very wary of strangers, not trusting them even before the infection broke out. Despite what some people think about her, she does care about her appearance and goes out of her way to make sure she looks nice before leaving. It is harder in the new world but she still attempts to not look like one of the infected.
Marilyn is very strong willed and it takes a lot to break that part of her. She has experienced her fair share of heart break, loss, and death and has grown from all of these experiences.
She smiles in the face of danger, seeing it more as a challenge.
- Fighting Experience - Having been a fighter before the outbreak she knows how to physically best other people, even those that have an advantage on her size wise.
- Wilderness Survival - Has camped and hunted her entire childhood.
- Emotionally Calloused - No problems doing things that have to be done in order to survive.
- Arrogant - Overestimates her abilities, often tries to take on more than she is capable of handling. Has led to her almost being devoured several times due to overestimating how many infected she could take on.
- Short Temper - Loses her cool easily which leads to doing impulsive actions that are most often not in her best interest or smart.
- (Lack of) Brute Force - Not that strong in terms of power, very fast and agile but not so good at heavy lifting.
