The plucky Marina Cooper was fortunate to have a loving family while she went through her troubled childhood. While still young, she was kidnapped by Holly Reade and then went through her parent's break up. She moved to California with her mother, but ran away to Springfield after being expelled from school. She persisted in her mischievous ways; befriending criminals, falsely accusing Gus of sex with a minor and stealing cars until more serious things came her way. This would include unlucky affairs with a serial killer, a mobster caring for his sick wife and her mother's ex-husband. While her choices in love have been a strain on her relationship with her father, she managed to make him proud when she joined the Springfield PD and has become one of its most promising detectives. Still, she maintains the exuberance that had led her to desire a career in show business while she tries to find a more settled life.
