Mara is the Scottish Gaelic word for "sea".  Are her abilities water based?  Just curious.

Interesting!  I wasn't aware of that origin of the name!
She was named when I was in my "chuck random syllables together and see if it sticks" phase -- though I also had done a bit of research into a deity I found interesting.  I can't remember which folklore the deity was from, sadly!
...Later, I found out that many gods named Mara are actually associated with death or nightmares.  ^^;

She's a healer / medic, though!  Blue just happens to look good on her, hehe. :meow:

Yeah!  It's kind of neat, all things considered.  The term "Mara" is apparently linked to the word "Mare" -- you can find some poems and stuff on that here.  (Folklore, yay!  That guy's site has a lot of cool variations of fairytales and such -- if that's something you're interested in!)

Mara in Buddhism is like... Something that blocks enlightenment. This site seems to have info on it, though Wikipedia also has a run-down.

...I like the Gaelic origins better, now that I know, though!

I studied Gaelic at school so that's how I knew about Mara meaning sea.
