Description Edit | History

From the manual:

Marion Wolfe was born an only child in 1974 in Philadelphia. Her mother, Clare Fitzgerald, is the heiress to a local Philadelphia fortune, the Fitzgerald Bank. Her father, Sir Randolph Wolfe is an Englishman whom her mother met in Monaco in 1972 and married in London in 1973. Marion's parents divorce in 1975. In 1983, Marion's father died in a plane crash in Kenya.

Clare Wolfe is Senator for the State of Pennsylvania (under the name of Clare Fitzgerald).

Marion was a brilliant student and showed great interest in the study of foreign civilizations as well as a gift for science. After leaving high school, Marion studied biology at Yale, then ethnology in Chicago where she obtained a Ph.D. in the year 2000.

Although she had intended to go into research, Marion's mother persuaded her to enter a profession in the media, and she became a journalist. She wrote several reports on the threatened civilizations of the world.

On her mother's recommendation yet again, she was commissioned by National Geographic to make an important documentary on the last Indian civilizations in South America. Clare Wolfe used her connections to grant her daughter military protection due to the dangers of such an expedition.

Marion and her team participated in a month long intensive training at the SEALS camp. One session included a full week of parachuting practice with Cutter Slade as the main instructor. One jump from the plane to reach an oil platform turns into a complete disaster. A sudden storm unloads unexpected stress on the team. A gust of wind blows the cameraman out of the normal path. His parachute becomes stuck on a nearby crane. Against Cutters' orders, the panicking rookie unties the straps and finds a precarious refuge in the crane's transportation jaws 130 feet above the raging waves.

Cutter stabilized the jaws by holding two dangling steel chains. He sent Marion out to move a lever on the control panel to return the crane's jaws to the platform before lowering it to the ground, which proved to be a disaster. Panicking, Marion pushed the wrong lever. For a split second Cutter found himself hopelessly looking at the slowly opening jaws and the trainee's bewildered eyes as he slid from the crane into the sea. Mark Tilfont's lifeless body was found the next morning and the whole operation cancelled on the spot.

When Marion returned to the United States, Clare accused the Pentagon of deliberately endangering the lives of the trainees. She found out about Cutter Slade and vented her anger on him with a long legal battle.

For the first time, Marion and her mother had a serious disagreement. Marion explained to her mother Cutter's real role and how deeply she was in his debt, but her mother refused to listen. Clare refused to allow Marion to see Cutter again, even though Marion only wanted to explain that she does not agree with her mother.

Marion moved away from her mother and gave up journalism. She became a bio-ethnological researcher. She started to travel widely again and in 2003 she published an Encyclopaedia of Terrestrial Nutriments (Earth Feeds. Encyclopaedia Terrestrial Nutriments. Cutler & Merchand. 2003).

In 2007, Marion became Director of the Exobiology Laboratory of the University of Chicago and is now recognized as one of the leading specialists in her field.
