At some point in the 2000s, Marion meets Matthew Cole. They are only together for a short time before Matthew asks her to marry him. She says no and the two separate.
Marion gives birth to James Cole in 2009. She finds Matthew a year later and introduces him to his son. She claims that she can not protect James and leaves him with his father. According to Matthew, she was also rambling about "some monkey army" and that he had to protect James.
