Marlene Boos describes herself as stable, like a rock. She says she is a quiet person, an introvert, and prefers to be in the background where she can provide support to Tikinagan. She may describe herself as a rock, but it is clear through the opinion of many that she is a gemstone here at Tikinagan.
