Also known as: The White Queen, The Selfish
Vessel: Mary Asher
Not much was known about Cursor prior to Obituary. Noah had acknowledged the fact that, based on the Observer's twitpic of her, she resembled his mother or Mary Asher. As of Obituary, Cursor's vessel is confirmed to be Mary Asher.
In Latin, Cursor means "runner".
- She appears in the Collective group shot in HAPPYBIRTHDAY, to the left of Swain.
- She is referred to by the Observer as "theselfish".
- The chess piece she represents is the White Queen ♕
- She is seen inside a safe in DEUS EX MACHINA, which belongs to Mary Asher.
- She is mentioned by Future Noah Maxwell during the TRIBETWELVE VETERANS DAY SPECIAL, where he describes her as a "fucking asshole" and a "very bad woman". Future Noah also said that it was a "very bad time to be a child under that woman".
In the video "Obituary", Cursor was revealed to be Mary Asher after Noah read the newspaper clipping enclosed in the OBITUARY letter, describing her death in more detail: she had been found in the passenger seat of a car in the middle of a retention pond in Huntsville, Alabama, with a gunshot wound to the abdomen and tape covering her eyes, matching Cursor's visage.
- It is possible that she had a high ranking in the Collective, shown by her status as a queen on the chessboard.
- Mary was once part of the Order; the same video contains laughter that may or not be Cursor.
- Noah's mother seemed to become very aggressive when asked about Mary, telling Noah to stay away from her. This could mean that she is trying to keep Noah away from Cursor.
- In DEUS EX MACHINA, Cursor appears inside of a safe which belongs to Mary. She seems to be sad, which might mean she can control herself like Firebrand, but unlike him, is unable to escape.
