Mari McKay is a character role-played by ChandraViperdae
Mari McKay grew in leaps and bounds after moving to Los Santos. When she first stepped foot into the country, and city - she lacked 'street smarts's. She grew up in a small country fishing town in Australia so had little experience with big city life. Now, she embraces it. Having experienced first hand how harsh it can be. She once believed in the good of everyone, and trusted too easily. Now she's bubbly and kind to all, but trusts very few.
On the outside Mari is usually bright, cheerful, and always down for something fun. She works hard at everything she does and her chipper personality draws people in - however she seems to exhibit strange sociopath tendencies. Randomly saying things like 'wouldn't it be fun to feel someones neck crushed between your hands' and commenting on 'I hear the palms of a person are meant to be tasty' These are seemingly harmless as Mari prefers non-violent approaches to things but she has been known to become violent if necessary. Especially when it comes to her friends and loved ones.
Mari can be quite insightful when it comes to various different topics. Especially that of death and grieving. Mari is ferociously loyal to those who do her good, and would never betray them.
Mari has an addictive personality and can easily find herself addicted to various substances and activities in Los Santos if she is not careful.
She does her best to be independent but also hopelessly clings to those she cares about. Even displaying an extreme, often violent or psychotic, level of devotion to a loved one.
Mari lived in a rural fishing town in Australia. With her mother. grandmother, and youngest sister. An unremarkable and boring life for most of her time but there a few key events that stand out.
At age 15- Mari was on a trip with school friends in the wilderness. They, in a cruel joke, drove off and left her there. Mari was lost and spent three days surviving on her own. She had to kill, cook, and eat native fauna and flora and describes the time as 'literally shitty' due to this, Mari doesn't shy away from interesting foods - and even developed a curiosity for what all kinds of meats taste like. She also learned that not everyone is her friend.
At age 18 - Her family went on an overnight fishing trip, a usual occurrence for them - they were caught in a flash storm. Her and her youngest sister (Nellie- Age 5) went overboard. Mari was rescued but her sister was lost. Mari blames herself for this, and wishes that she was taken by the sea instead. Mari is wracked by guilt of being saved over someone so young. Mari used a mixture of Alcohol, codeine, oxy, and prescription drugs, and reckless behavior to cope with this.
Her mother had remarried and Mari, along with her new family moved to the United States. However, feeling displaced, Mari chose to move to a different city, Los Santos. She wanted a complete change of scenery and a fresh start to help her move on from tragic events.

CHILDREN OF THE LILLY
|Children Of The Lilly|
*"'Luka has approached her with some concerning news talking about a strange group of people dressed in white suits and masks and told her that they are also targeting other notable people he hangs out with, including a close friend of Mari's, James Brown. This group is known as the Children of the Lillies
Since the initial conversations Mari has woken up to find the bear that Luka and James had given her stolen from her apartment. A little unnerved Mari spoke to Luka about this. After speaking to Leo she was called on an anonymous number and told to come to Chamos Pier alone at 6pm or her friends would be hurt. Terrified of what could happen to them - she agreed. Mari met with a man who Luka told her was called Anatoliy Deshev and he told her he was a 'ghost' she claimed she couldn't help because she isn't good with criminal activity, and could barely point a gun at someone without fucking it up.
The strange man told him that is exactly what she is useful for; being un-corrupted and refusing to give into temptation of illicit activities. the man gave her a book called 'The first child of the Lilly' and returned her bear to her. He told her they would be in contact in the future, before taking a cyanide pill and leaving Mari crying, alone, and confused, bequeathing a knife and mask to her. Mari called EMS, but left the scene in tears and does not know if he made it or not.
Later that day Mari finally managed to meet up with Luka and James again; upon telling them what happened they were more cavalier about the whole affair which upset Mari. Mari feels upset, and confused - seeing those closest to her seemingly making light off a situation that had severely affected her. She brushed it off and laughed with them, claiming that it probably wasn't that big of a deal - but it still got to her.
Mari felt confused, frustrated, and closed off from those she is closest to. After talking to Kian, as she was worried about the Mirror Park Tavern, he told her she could potentially loose her job with this. As she could not have ties to criminal activity - and if they start coming after the bar - or its staff, she would have to be let go. So as Kian had said it, she has been put between a rock and a hard place.
Ever since the initial confrontation and reaction - the 'Children of the Lilly' have been completely silent.

Ever suspicious Mari never really let her guard down around Blanden. She kept talking to Kian about it - and her concerns. Kian finally admitted they had proof that it was not the real Blanden. Mari confronted 'Blanden' and they had a discussion about how the creature posing as Blanden wanted to turn a new leaf. He apologized for attacking and targeting Mari - and turning her into a sleeper agent. They are currently figuring out a way to save the real Blanden.
The real Blanden was saved, and the 'lizard Blanden' apologized to Mari, freeing her of her sleeper agent status. He now considers the HOA and their associates his friend.
