Eivor Marie is Severin Kjartan’s mother and the minister of the meagerly populated religious congregation"The Scourge of Sins". Outwardly, she gives the impression of a steadfast faith in his son’s greatness as a poet, but privately she is probably not as strong in the faith. Her belief in fighting sin, is however strong and she makes valiant attempts to save the regulars at Moxie’s from drunkenness, adultery and other abominations. To say she is successful in this is an exaggeration of almost biblical proportions.
Her son’s somewhat strange desire to write his poems in a dialect used only in the Outer Hebrides is a perpetual source of both sadness and annoyance for Eivor Marie, as both she and her late husband, General Sivert Solvang Sylte had always been strong supporters of the Queens English. But all her attempts to make Severin Kjartan make a linguistic conversion seems futile. To get him to use his questionable talent in a more commercial direction seems just as futile.
To get regulars and staff at Moxie’s interested in attending the meetings in her sparse congregation is also one of Eivor Maries lost causes, although her efforts are impeccable. Her eternal discussions with the Free Church pastor Paul Abraham Trangedal Mørk about women’s place in Christian Society is no source of joy for poor Eivor Marie either as Trangedal Mørk’s equally meager congregation "Blissful Victory" is actually of the opinion that women should remain silent in the houses of God as well as other places.
