|“||This has been happening to me all of my life! My entire fucking life! I've already tried to save you when you were young, but I failed. Your predicament is inevitable. I should've realized that from the start. There's nothing else I can do for you, but bide you time. And for John? I had him removed from the equation. He was working for them, trying to get to me like the rest. It's all a clever fucking facade, just like Robert. Did you really think that those ashes were Milo's? You gullible fucker. Those ashes were from his dead cat. His body disappeared, just like all the others do. They get taken. I know this, and I know a lot of things.||„|
|~ Mary to Noah Maxwell.|
Mary had mental problems since she was a child, claiming that she could see a tall man that she called Mr. Slim. Some time after Milo was born, she married John Fletcher. Noah had not had much contact with her until Milo's Funeral. Eventually, Mary left Fletcher and disappeared. Noah attempted to find her, but had difficulties.
When he took over Noah's Formspring, the Observer says that he "used to know" Mary. He says that she is a pawn, and a "priority".

In "Obituary," while Noah is about to open a letter sent to him by an unknown person or entity, he gets a call from his mother telling him that Mary Asher was found dead in a pond while in her car. After hanging up the phone, Noah opens the letter. Inside it contains a news story about her death. It goes into detail, stating that her death was ruled a homicide due to her being in the passenger's seat, having a gunshot through her abdomen, and having black tape over her eyes. Noah realizes that Cursor and Mary are one and the same. Previously, Noah had acknowledged similarities in Mary's and Cursor's appearances.
Mr. Scars had been previously referred to as "theonewhokillsmary" by the Observer. Noah has theorized that Mr. Scars is Milo, which was later confirmed in Milo's Tape. Its said in the video that Milo denounces his mother for sacrificing him in order to save herself and shoots her in the stomach.
