Mary Godwin is the close sister of Shelley Godwin. Although she holds no true rank in the Kukai Foundation organization, Mary functions as Jr.'s second-in-command on board Durandal as well as the Chief of the Kukai Foundation's Strategy Division. Everyone in the Foundation respects her and values her opinions in spite of her unofficial affiliation. Mary is also fun loving and the life of the party within the Foundation. In fact, many members of the Kukai Foundation have initiated the "Mary & Shelley Fan Club", at the suggestion of Jr. himself. Mary is quite fond of Jr., although her true affection lies with Gaignun Kukai.
Mary is a Übermutant and her parents were Überhumans. In other words, her parents are Designer Children who had artificial modifications made to their bodies and brains. She is able to communicate telepathically with her sister via "interlink" which is defined as "An exchange of thought between two individuals who are physically connected via an apparatus, normally achieved by tapping into the U.M.N. network via a control device implanted inside the body."
She was born on Miltia but speaks with an unknown planetary accent. (In the English version, it sounds like a southern American Texas accent, almost as if she is a cowgirl.)
She was once part of a group of people who were illegally "owned" by a pharmaceutical company that used them as guinea pigs and kept on constant medication. Mary hated it.
Twelve years ago, Gaignun saved Shelley and Mary and they made the Kukai Foundation their new home. Mary adopted the surname "Godwin" after.
