Mara is Dr. Lloyd’s personal assistant. First and foremost she is a student, Dr. Lloys always keeps one, and as he was, will groom one to take his place when he dies. Because of his advanced age, Mara is his most likely succeser. She has known the doctor for the last 10 years, and has grown to see him as a father figure. She’s deeply loyal to him and his simple cause of gaining knowledge.
