Mari Clock van Hoorne is a 16th-century Dutch girl that frequently dresses in Norse style. As a result, has an alternate persona name of Marína Sviðbalki.

Sometimes at events you may find Mari working at Troll, she likes being a Troll, or list running if there is a tournament happening. These days you can sometimes find Mari helping out in the kitchen because her son seems to enjoy it there and it is important to support the children in their endeavors.
