Polly Marks is one of the protagonists to the series Claws. She is a close friend to Desna and was away from the salon, being temporarily substituted with Virginia. Her character is played by Carrie Preston.
Polly has a petite build, short in height, and has red, shoulder-length hair.
Early Life Edit
Polly committed identity fraud, stealing funds from many elderly from a nursing house. During the time, she encountered and befriended Sally Bates, another woman that has conned an older man for money. After a while, Polly is compromised, arrested and jailed.
During this time, Desna paid her visits. One visit, she tells Polly that she was right about joining in the operations, saying that one of the doctors had "retired" and that Roller had some sort of dark side she fears. Through the conversation, they tell each other that if something were to happen to them--their life were at risk--they would use the code phrase "ambrosia salad" to mean they needed help.
Before New Years Edit
Returning to Nail Artisan of Manatee County, Polly is given a surprise party for her release. After Virginia's arrival, the women prepare for another busy day in the salon. Roller pays the salon a visit, asking Polly how she was doing.
Reunited with the Past Edit
to be added
Polly has developed much of her personality in a positive and often upbeat attitude, presenting herself in a "preppy" archetype. She after expresses love and share her own insights that she managed to learn throughout her life. She also tends to be a convulsive liar, shown to share untrue stories that skew from her actual background. It is unknown where she picks out her much darker side; Polly can become slightly aggressive and brazen in matters that display her loyalty to her friends and allies, willing to fabricate a crime or blackmail former acquintances she feels has wronged her.
