During the night, when Moiraine arrives in Emond's Field, Marin shows her and Lan to their room. Marin recognizes an Aes Sedai ring immediately add addresses Moiraine appropriately. She believes that just because there is an Aes Sedai in Emond's Field, this does not mean that the war from Ghealdan will come to them there.

On the night of Bel Tine, Marin, her husband, and her daughter light a candle inside a paper lantern and let it flow downriver, as is the tradition in the village. Later she urges the people of the village to celebrate and start dancing.
