Lia K Dare was a great soldier in the marines at age 19.She had only been in the army for 6 months,but she was already the best of her class.One day a man challenged her out of the blue.Being her arrogant self, Lia accepted the challenge immediately. After being humiliated and beaten easily,she became instantly attracted to the man.So she asked him for practice sessions and he replied with a smile.After about 4 months they had regular practice sessions everyday after daylight fell. One night they decided to extend training for a while,once doing this it went a little further than just training ;). After that night, Lia returned to the location where they scheduled,but he wasn't there.She returned there every day for the rest of her time in the marines.3 months later,at her apartment, Lia jumped into her jacuzzi,but felt very weird.The next day she went to the doctor and found our that she was pregnant.
Maryanne Cleopatra Dare was born on January 1.Growing up Maryanne or Mary was consider a strange child,with anger management problems.Even at young ages she was WAY more violent than other children such as,breaking a kids nose at age 4 for breaking her crayon.Another is when she breaking most of a boys ribs at 7 for spreading rumors about her.Although all of these are bad its nothing compared to what she would do to her younger brother Dustin, such as when he broke her iPod,she gave him a scratch that resembles one of a tiger.
Later in her life though she tried her best to suppress her anger and for a while it actually worked.She was the most popular and most feared girl in school,she had good grades and her teachers liked her.This all stopped for her 14 birthday.Her mother,Lia,bought tickets for their family and Kendel to a cruize around to the Caribbean.Once there,they had a great time,birds were singing and kids were playing.From there it went south.Suddenly a bunch of Telkinhies swooped down and started to attack,seemingly looking for something.In the process,they knocked Dustin over board.Enraged,Mary attacked with all the weapons she could find,knives,chairs,tables.None of them were very effective and in no time,Mary and Kendel were cornered.Luckily for them,a group of teenager dressed with bronze armour and weapons fended off the monsters and quickly killed them.Once there they revealed to Mary that she was a demigod and Kendel was also.They told her and her mother of a camp where she would be safe.She agreed to go with them,but before she did she looked into the water and vowed that she would find her brother one day.
Once arriving at camp she was immideately claimed by Ares/Hades/Apollo.She couldn't help but feeling as if she didn't belong,so about 4 months after arriving,she joined the Artemis hunters.Years passed(5 to be exact) and one night,when she was asleep she was approached in her bream by Poseidon.He told her that her brother was alive and that the only way she could find him is to leave the Artemis Hunters and complete the hardest quest that Artemis has.The day after,she approached Artemis and told her of her dream.Artemis accepted,but only if she failed that she would forever more pledge her allegiance to her.The mission was to kill a beast that Artemis had created for her to kill,the only problem was that the beast the beast had the strength of 100 men and the speed of a cheetah.Mary accepted her quest and headed off for Austin Texas where the beast is.Once arriving there,she found that the cave that the beast lived in.Instead of attacking it head on she set a bunch of arrows on fire and set a trap,made of Celestial Bronze.She shot four of them into the cave and immdeately charge out towards her and the trap.Once it stepped on the trip wire a bunch of branches swung towards its legs,breaking them.Another set of branshes with two swords attacked at the end also swung towards its head,chopping it clean off.Once i was dead,Mary brought the head of the beast back to the point where Artemis said she should meet her.Artemis confirmed the beasts head,she gave Mary a Pegasus and a map that led to a stranded island in the Atlantic. It took about 2 days to arrive,but once she did,she saw her and landed.She hugged him briefly and then told him the whole story from the moment he was thrown over board to making the deal with Artemis.He agreed to leave to camp with her and they both jumped onto the Pegasus and set off for camp.
Once arrived she helped him learn his way around and then she rejoined her cabin and her friends.
Mary is a head strong and fearless girl.She says whats on her mind and doesn't care who takes offense to it.Although her "Take it like a man" attutude,she can be very sensitive to those she cares about.
