Brief History: Mariana was born toward the tail end of the human/gifted war, into the faction that had started growing into Liberty not long before. She was trained into the Libertian army at a young age, but fell in love with an officer's son and became pregnant with her first child. Liberty authorities deemed them a suitable couple, fortunately, at Mariana Guerra Married Martin Barnett at age 20.

Over the next sixteen years, Mariana had four children: Richard, Louis, Elliot, and Jimmy (James). The two eldest, Richard and Louis, followed after their father and joined the Libertian military. When Dutch attacked the Liberty base, Martin, Richard, and Louis were killed defending the city. When the draft age growing ever lower, Mariana fled with fifteen year old Elliot and four year old Jimmy just weeks before Elliot's 16th birthday. They were followed by a family favorite stray, creatively named Dog.

The small family ran into the sisters Lyda and Crystal and took up shelter in a human bunker, where they have been since.

Beware the chancla.
