Marianne Bozek is described by Maggie Adler as a kind, humble woman. Bozek helped Adler decode messages from the ghosts of the USS Kanaloa Crew. Marianne Bozek told Maggie she "corresponded" with a man named Calvin, who died on the Kanaloa. Despite this, Maggie suspected Bozek did not believe the messages were truly from the sunken Kanaloa.
