According to Noah's mother, Mary had mental problems since she was young. She claimed that she could see a tall man that she called "Mr. Slim", who is the Slender Man. Some time after Milo was born, she married John Fletcher. Noah had not had much contact with her until Milo's Funeral. Eventually, Mary left Fletcher and disappeared. Noah attempted to find her, but had difficulties.
When he took over Noah's Formspring, the Observer says that he "used to know" Mary. He says that she is a pawn, and a "priority".
Identity As Cursor
In "November 11th", Noah mentions that during the call she had mentioned that she knew about the Observer, Slender Man, and what had been happening to him.
During the "Mary Asher Phone Call" video, she discusses several key aspects with Noah. These include that she has also been stalked by the Slender Man and members of the Collective and that she has read the journal that Karl Maxwell has in his possession.
In "Obituary," while Noah is about to open a letter sent to him by an unknown person or entity, he gets a call from his mother telling him that Mary Asher was found dead in a pond while in her car. After hanging up the phone, Noah opens the letter. Inside it contains a news story about her death. It goes into detail, stating that her death was ruled a homicide due to her being in the passenger's seat, having a gunshot through her abdomen, and having black tape over her eyes. Noah realizes that Cursor and Mary are one and the same. Previously, Noah had acknowledged similarities in Mary's and Cursor's appearances.
Mr. Scars had been previously referred to as "theonewhokillsmary" by the Observer. Noah has theorized that Mr. Scars is Milo, which was later confirmed in Milo's Tape. In said video Milo denounces his mother for sacrificing him in order to save herself and shoots her in the stomach.
- Asher was one of the twelve tribes of Israel.
- In Latin, Cursor means "messenger" or "carrier."
- She is referred to by the Observer as "theselfish" during the February 14, 2012 Livestream. It can be assumed this has to do with her sacrifice of her own son.
