Biography

Aberration timeline

A magical fugitive began murdering people in New Orleans and the blame fell on Marie. Marie was accused of being the killer and appeared on a cereal box discussing prolific serial killers in the present day. The Legends discovered and traveled to 1856 to fix the timeline.[1]

Current timeline

In 1856, Marie sensed the presence of John Constantine and asked one of his followers to kidnap him and put him under control of one of his talismans. Constantine had a vision of his ex-boyfriend Desmond, who had the same talisman in the future. Marie then discovered that Desmond was a distant member of her family. Charlie and Zari Tomaz busted in to where Constantine was being held. At that point, Marie educated Zari that the chronological error is an abhorrent soul, and she transferred that data to the remainder of the group. Marie requested Constantine to help her kinfolk in return for help in 1856, then she freed him. Later, the Legends detained the magical fugitive, bringing the timeline back to normal.[1]
