Character description

1.) (Legendary character) Maid Marian (or Marion) is the love interest of the legendary outlaw Robin Hood in English folklore. Maid Marian was in origin a "shepherdess" figure associated with May Day. Her role as the love interest of Robin Hood dates to at least the 16th century. She is typically portrayed as beautiful, confident, and sincere in her love of Robin Hood. Often, she is a noblewoman in the stories, though sometimes she is a commoner. Most modern Robin Hood stories feature her prominently and present her as an admirable woman. Of particular note is Marian's independence and relative equality to her lover, marking her as one of the earliest strong female characters in English literature.

2.) In Kore Yamazaki's Frau Faust series, Marion is a boy who would have been caught stealing a book that once belonged to his father, if he hadn't been helped by Johanna Faust. Leaning on his obligation and launching a charm offensive with his mother, Johanna takes the opportunity to stay with them a few days, and offers to teach Marion on the subject of his choice. She is waiting for her opportunity to retrieve what she tells Marion is her dog, but is actually Mephistopheles' missing arm. Lorenzo Calandra almost captures them, but they escape. Marion insists on going with Johanna when she continues on her travels.
