Marie was a Predictamancer in service to Faq. Her responsibility to the Kingdom of Faq was to predict which of Faq's three cities was going to be observed by non-Faq units, and tell Jack Snipe so he could veil the city before it was seen. After her side fell, she went to the Magic Kingdom where she began working with Janis to mastermind the creation of the Perfect Warlord spell. Janis believes that Marie shares her desire to permanently end war on Erfworld, but Marie's true objectives have yet to be revealed.

Successful predictions

Relationships

Janis

Janis is involved in a conspiracy with Marie Lavraie, the former Predictamancer of Faq. Janis believes that Marie helped to create the Summon Perfect Warlord Spell that brought Parson to Erfworld as part of a plan to end war on Erfworld. However, Janis questions Marie's judgment in giving the spell to Wanda, who seems to Janis to be the very antithesis of everything she believes and stands for.

Real World References

Her name may be a reference to Marie Laveau, an 18th century voudoun priestess from New Orleans.

Her last name of Lavraie is french for "the true one".

Her hat is a Phrygian Cap, a symbol of liberty in Roman times.
