Mari Clock van Hoorne is a 16th-century Dutch girl that frequently dresses in Norse style. As a result, Mari has an alternate persona name of Marína Sviðbalki. In addition, since Marietta is her real first name, she retained Marietta da Firenze as an alternate name as well. Oh, yeah, in case you didn't know, 14th Century is still awesome.

Sometimes at events you may find Mari working at Troll. She likes being a Troll. She also enjoys list running if there is a tournament happening, and loves serving feasts. In addition, having a strong love of games, be it card games, board games, or lawn games, Mari has recently begun the process of registering the Household name of Gameday Taverne (link to its own page will follow once the process through submission is complete). The general purpose of Gameday Taverne is to (hopefully) schedule and arrange Servers for feasts at local events... and play games.

These days you can sometimes find Mari helping out in the kitchen because her son Siege seems to enjoy them, and it is important to support the children in their endeavors.
