MARIKO FARNWELL – 35 (8 when the comet hit). Her name means “pure knowledge.” She is Remy’s first wife. She came with the Outsiders. Her beauty is masked not only by the harsh existence but the dual family-life that Remy has insisted they live. He has a universal mandate to procreate; to ensure the survival and continuity of their clan. She is fiercely loyal to him…and he to her…a mutual respect that is their anchor.
