Mary is a Scottish woman and Tom's mother. In 994, she and her son were part of a band of refugees that took shelter at Castle Wyvern. This led to her and her son being captured by Vikings, rescued by gargoyles and eventually befriending Princess Katharine herself. Mary and Tom joined the Princess and the Magus on the journey to Edinburgh Castle, taking the eggs of the Wyvern Clan with them. At Edinburgh, Mary became something of a handmaiden to the Princess for a time.
