Welcome to Memorandum of Understanding, the Mary Shannon and Marshall Mann fanlisting. If you’re here, you’re either interested in the prospect of these two engaging characters as a couple, or you want to know what the heck fangirls like myself were thinking in creating such a fanlisting. So let’s begin, shall we?

Mary and Marshall who?

Mary Shannon (who occasionally goes by the alias Mary Shepard) is a U.S. Marshal working out of Albuquerque, New Mexico. She works with WITSEC, (Witness Protection Program) to keep those that can testify against criminals in court. Sometimes these people are witnesses, other times criminals. Either way, Mary does her best to keep them from harm.

Mary has an abrasive personality brought about by a tough childhood: her mother, Jinx, was unreliable and alcoholic, while her sister, Brandi, seemed hopelessly dependent on her. One day, Mary’s father simply vanished and never returned home, and Mary has never quite come to terms with it. She doesn’t like to rely on others and finds it hard to really believe in people.

Marshall Mann (He’s Inspector Marshal Marshall Mann!) is Mary’s partner. He’s the yin to Mary’s yang, always staying cool and collected despite facing a huge variety of difficult situations, whether from the witnesses he’s helping to protect or Mary herself! He’s a fountain of seemingly-useless knowledge, but he’s always reliable and his trivia definitely comes in handy in a pinch!

Uhm, So What’s a Fanlisting?
