Marlya Noel (マーリヤ・ノエル, Māriya Noeru) is a new recruit to the Illegal Fairy Regulatory Dorothea. She is a special case who has the ability to control fairies without undergoing fairy organ implant surgery. Her village was burned down during the war, leaving her and her childhood friend Veronica as the sole survivors.
Marlya is a 19 year old with green eyes and redish-brown hair. She most often wears the main Fairy Regulatory Dorothea uniform. When she is not wearing her uniform, Marlya usually wears a long sleeved blue shirt tucked into black pants with a brown belt. She also carries a sniper rifle on her back at all times.
Marlya is nice and sweet. She and Veronica were the only survivors from a village, but soon after that Veronica left her. Ever since that day, Marlya was obsessed with finding Veronica.
Marlya was working as a security during an auction. She was checking the auction items, when she encountered Free Underbar, who scolded her for being there and told her to got back at her position. She then noticed a strange animal Chima and some fairies. While she was talking with Free, an intruder attacked the auction. Marlya went to help and was surprised to see the intruder was Veronica, the long lost fried she was looking for. Marlya tried talking to her, but she was getting ignored by Veronica. As a fight and gunshots started, the bottle with the fairies broke. Marlya was worried for the fairy to not get hurt from the gunshots and tried protecting it, but the fairy entered in her body. Moments later, she woke up and went looking for Free and Veronica outside. She joined their fairy fight and summoned her own fairy to ended their fight. As Veronica escaped, Free introduced himself as being part of Dorothea and told her he either will have to arrest her or she to join Dorothea. Marlya accepted his offer in order to continue chasing Veronica.
Her first mission with Free led her to Dirpe ruins in former Ledrad. There they teamed up with Serge Tova and Klara Kysenaria, who were already started their mission. As they introduced themselves for Marlya, people arrived on the location and Klara understood one of them was fairy soldier. As he got himself separated from the rest, Free went to look for him with Marlya. As they went into village ruins, they realized they were being fooled and led there and quickly rushed back. They managed to catch up with the fairy soldier and Free started fighting him. Wolfran Row made his fairy attack Marlya and but her fairy Ash Clad came out to protect her, but lost her arms. As they kept chasing after Wolfran, they encountered three artificial fairies. Marlya tried to summon her fairy, but due to the damage she took, she wasn't able to. As Free fought them, Marlya was shooting at the fairies, but their armor was too thick for he to penetrate with her rifle.
Later Marlya and Free went to the Ministry of Fairies by order of Nein Auler. There they met the vice-minister Marco Bellwood, who wanted to speak about the existence of the Black Fairy Tome and also explained the other Fairy Tomes. He then send them to speak with Cain Distarol, a fairy scholar in Isharat.
In front of Cain house, they met "Sweetie" Bitter Sweet, Free trying hiding from her, but she still managed to see him. All of them they went to see Cain and met Damien Carme there too. As they had normal conversation, a fairy attacked them. Axel Laboo managed to steal the fairy tome, as Damien went to check it and revealed where it was. But his attempt to escape failed as he was eventually caught by Bitter Sweet and as Free came too, she shot Axel to not let him escape. Axel then threw the Black Fairy Tome page, letting them fight over it and ran away. Marlya joined the fight and shot at Bitter Sweet's fairy, but then her fairy Skriker automatically attacked her. As they realized Skriker's power, Marlya used her fairy and her heat attack defeating Striker and forcing Bitter Sweet to retreat and they securing the Black Fairy Tome page.
Since Marlya pushed her too hard, she was unconscious for a whole day and stayed at Cain's house. As she woke up, Free was by her side and they discussed that his page may have been the one stolen from the auction and to have connection to Veronica. They went to speak with Cain and Damien, but they weren't willing to tell them how they got the page nor did they knew Veronica.
Free and Marlya went to eat and as they were talking, a woman and a man sat next to them. A moment later the man disappeared and the woman stood up and left. Free then realized they stole the Black Fairy Tome and they went after them. Their chase led them to an underground in a church. As they were exploring it, they got attacked and Free went after the attacker, leaving Maryla behind. Marlya then got stalker by Jonathan Passpierre. As he attacked her, Marlya managed to get outside, where he stabbed her, but then Veronica jumped between them. Marlya was observing Patricia and Jonathan fighting, until she was finally able to summon her fairy. She then unleashed a fire attack at Jonathan, further burning the place and managing to escape with Veronica. Jonathan also managed to escape, but Veronica then killed him with her fairy. Before leaving she again told Marlya to think of her as dead and not continue looking for her.
Back at Dorothea HQ, Marlya was receiving medical exam and later went with other Dorothea members at a public bar, celebrating her welcoming party. There they enjoyed drinks and chatting together.
Marlya and Free were patrolling the streets, when they saw an misbehaving artificial fairy and assisted to deal with the situation. Later they joined Glyph Mercer and other fairy technicians, trying to figure out the cause, but couldn't find the reason. Later they heard from Nein that the fairy tome they got was fake, but had new lead on a likely a real one. Klara and Marlya were given the mission and went to speak with the informant, but he organized an attack. Once Klara and Marlya easily dispatched his men, the informant quickly gave the information he had. Following the information and the target, they boarded a train, but weren't able to locate the target. Waiting for the next stop, Marlya asked Klara why he joined Dorothea and Klasa explained her backstory. On the next station stop, they continued searching for the man and then saw him leaving the train. They chased him and managed to capture him. Later Free questioned the man that Marlya brought up, but he didn't say anything. As they were patrolling they met Axel and were surprised he survived. He wanted to apologize and they used him if he could tell them anything about the man the had captured.
When two more artificial fairies malfunctioned, Free and Marlya were assisting the fairy technicians to find the cause. Later Free saw Axel and asked him if he knew if Arcame was planning something, but Axel didn't knew anything and told him that a person wanted to see him. Axel then arranged a meeting with Bitter Sweet. Free and Marlya later spoke with Nein, telling her that Bitter Sweet proposed working together and Nein agreed.
Marlya with Klara assisted Bitter Sweet and went to see Gilbert Warlock. He was still refusing to let Bitter Sweet see the page, but unknowingly admitted in front of them that he has it. Bitter Sweet then revealed that the two girls were from Dorothea and summoned her fairy. The Gilbert men started shooting, but were injuring themselves due to her fairy ability. Marlya then used her fairy to neutralized Gilbert and his men surrendered. Bitter Sweet then forced Gilbert to lead her towards the fairy tome and after passing through a secret passage, she closed it behind her, leaving Gilbert and the girls behind. When Free came he asked Gilbert for another passage and he and Marlya went after Bitter Sweet. They found the fairy tome, but Bitter Sweet had escaped already.
Free and Marlya were tasked on taking a Fairy Weapon for Schwarz Diese and later transporting in on train. While on the train, they got ambushed by Beevee Liscar, who derailed the train. As they started fighting back, Marlya used her fairy to stop the shooters, drawing the attention of Sophie who went after her. As she was about to finish her, Oz Mare protected her. Oz then grabbed her and started running, but was shot few times and eventually fell on the ground exhausted. Beevee then saw him and decided to finish him as he no longer was able to fight. While being stabbed he still was smiling to Marlya and protecting her with his body. Later Marlya was staying by his side, while he took his last breath.
After Oz Mare's death, Marlya was blaming herself for being the cursed child. Their new mission led them to Ray Dawn, to inspect his Fairy Weapon and artificial fairy soldiers. Meeting Ray, he understood she hated him. Later at dinner, Marlya expressed desire to visit someone she knew and Free allowed it if they had time. She went to see Jingle, the head of the mafia group Biaklay, for whom she was grateful for giving her a bodyguard job in the past. Jingle offered Maryla to return to him, but then Free and other Dorothea members came. Free told Jingle he had the determination to protect Marlya and risk his life. Hearing that Marlya started crying not wanting someone to die because of her again. But Free explained that's what comrades do and that she shouldn't run and keep going for her goal and managed to convince her to stay.
After returning in Rodancia, they got informed that Schwarz started a rebellion. They went to see Nein, but learned she was gone since yesterday. Having no choice, Free went to deliver the letter to the prime minister himself. When Free returned he informed them about the real target being the Rodancia's Palace and they left for it. There they fought the rebellion armies led by Beevee. Entering the palace, they met Bohme who asked them to follow him and they will be able to stop Beevee. As they went ahead of Beevee and started fighting him, Marlya helped out Free to fight Beevee's fairy. When Beevee withdraw, Marlya wanted to go chase after him, but Free stopped her as they managed to drive him away from the palace.
After the events with Schwarz Diese, Klara, Serge, Marlya and Free were tasked to guard Ray Dawn until he returns to his territory. They went with him on the train, but a bridge got sabotaged and the train fell into the river. They seek out refugee for the night at a nearby ruined castle. As they stayed there, during the night Arcame launched an attack using artificial fairy soldiers, but the Dorothea members managed to defeat them all.
Free and Marlya heard enemy from inside the castle and went to check it out. They saw Veronica and Wolfran fighting and interfered. Veronica ran away and Marlya followed her as she saw she wasn't coming out of the water. As she saved Veronica, she started a fire to warm her. When Veronica waked up, they talked and Veronica asked her why is she stopping her from killing Ray, but Marlya told her that won't return Suna and that she haven't lost all, as she still had Marlya, but in the end Veronica still left.
Dorothea received the news of a new Black Fairy Tome Nine appearance and Free and Marlya were dispatched to secure it. As they went on the island, they saw a fire and closed the port so no ships to leave. On the next, they were patrolling looking if they could find the one who took the tome, but then met Damien. As they talked, Veronica came running chased by Eajey Daven Thor, who had the tome on him. They tried fighting him, but weren't able to do anything. As Damien called for Veronica, Marlya realized he knew her and asked what was his relationship with her.
Free and Marlya arrested Damien as he had connection with Veronica. They brought him to Dorothea HQ, where Nein spoke with him. After that Nein decided Dorothea to go after Gui Carlin and Free met with Bitter Sweet and obtained all the information she had. Dorothea members then went after high position businessmen that were related to Gui Carlin and arrested them all. For safety measures, Free and Marlya took Damien to a different place following Nein orders.
As they have dealt with Gui Carlin, the only one remaining was Eajey and his men. Free and the rest went to Mazria and his castle. They sneaked in, but were found out and started to fight the fairy soldiers Eajey had created. Free left the soldiers to Dorothea members and went Eajey's right hand man and then found Eajey. Eajey then tried using his fairy ability, but Free's fairy weapon was preventing him. As they ran around the castle, they eventually started climbing up a tower and fight. Free managed to defeat and slash Eajey, but Eajey then cut the platform they were standing, making them both fall. Eajey fell down and died, but Free was saved by Marlya. When they found the Black Fairy Tome, they were sending it back, when they got attacked by Wolfran Row and Michel Connor using Oz Mare's fairy Yale, stealing the black tome. As Marlya chased them, she encountered Michel, who attacked her with Yale, but the fairy avoided hitting her and started rebelling. Michel wondered why and commanded her again, but this time Marlya used her fairy Ash Clad to stop Yale. As she was holding it, she heard a voice and realized Yale wasn't intending to fight and as Ash Clad defeated Yale, a fairy flew out of Michel and disappeared in the air. Michel was ready to die, as he had done his part and they had collected the black fairy tomes, but Marlya told him she won't kill him, but arrest him.
As she spoke with the rest of Dorothea members, they realized Wolfran had connection to Marco and had gotten all black fairy tomes. And since a soldier dies, Ministry of Fairies receives the body with the fairy organ, so they could experiment and move the organ to different person. When only Nein and Free remained with Marlya, she explained she heard a voice from the fairy and as they spoke, they concluded that a fairy-possessed like her were able to remove the fairy organ from a soldier, as Michel now didn't had the organ anymore. Nein wanted to speak with Damien, as he would know more about fairy-possession. Marlya and Free went to take him and he told them that Marco was planning to revive the Divine Beast and that now he will want a fairy-possessed fairy organ like the one Marlya had. As they returned to Nein and explained the situation, Damien wanted to work with them and to see Golbarn and there he revealed everything he knew and Golbarn agree for them to arrest Marco and his men.
They went after Marco, but he and his men had already escaped, taking the black tomes and fairy weapons. Dorothea then started investigation Marco and Glyph traveling and eventually reached a name, Olek Gunnar. Marlya remembered he was from Suna and they went to her village. There they met Olek and Marlya was happy he was still alive. When they asked him about Marco, he explained that Marco had come five years ago and he led them deep in the forest, where they found the Esteemed One fairy, a fusion of primodial that Marco needed and had captured it. Realizing that Marco only needs a fairy-possessed fairy organ, they headed back and took a break at some ruins for the night. When Free went to sleep, Marlya wandered around following some fireflies and then met Wolfran, who wanted to take her fairy-possession fairy organ. As they fought, she her fairy used the attack that is able to erase the fairy organ and Wolfran felt strange. Marlya told him she could still save him and his fairy, but that only angered Wolfran. As they kept fighting, Free eventually came and Wolfran decided to run.
When they returned to HQ, Nein informed them that the Prime Minister Golbarn had been assassinated. They informed Nein that Eins had obtained a fusion and that knew Marlya was fairy-possessed. Marlya then suggested she to be used as a bait and let Eins go after her, the rest of the Dorothea members supported it, saying they will protect her and Nein agreed. When Ray Dawn came to Rondacia, due to Golbarn's death, Dorothea was assigned to protect him. As Marlya had revealed she was Suna survivor, he later summoned her to talk with her. He unleashed his fairy on hers and asked her what does she hear. Marlya told his fairy didn't want to kill her, but just test her. Ray Dawn told her that Marlya's fairy wanted salvation. He then told Marlya to not listed to the fairies voices, as this was no longer the world of fairies. Ray Dawn told her that the voices of the people were more important to him. Marlya then questioned him, why did he kill everyone at Suna, but Ray Dawn only said that only he should had the fairy-possessed power and that they need to find Veronica.
Marlya figured she could use Chima to find Veronica, as he could smell fairies. Walking around the building, he picked a scent and they followed him. Marlya then was able to find Veronica and explained about Eins Order, but Veronica had only one mission in her life and refused to listen.
Prior to Golbarn's funeral, Ray Dawn's convoy was attacked by Eins and Beevee, they had to hide in a witness protection house. As Ray was alone with Marlya, Veronica came and started fighting Ray Dawn. Marlya intervened, saying that Ray Dawn had regrets, even though he was denying it, otherwise if he was that cold, he would not had let Veronica live the previous time they met and she tried to kill him. Little by little, Veronica's desire to fight faded away and Ray Dawn apologized for what he did. Veronica wondered if she could still live a normal life, and Marlya assured her. Glyph Mercer then showed up and tried attacking Veronica and Marlya, using the little strength he had, Ray summoned his fairy and blocked Glyph's attack with it, before passing out. He then proceeded and took Ray's body.
When Marlya and Veronica woke up, they couldn't find neither Ray or Glyph. Knowing what Eins goal was, Marlya told Veronica to ran somewhere safe and leave Rondacia, but Veronica refused, wanting to stay with her. They followed the Divine Beast around the city, trying to figure out how to stop him. As they heard it's voice, Marlya realized the beast didn't want to kill, but was forced to and she decided to free him. They forged a plan that they can cut the Divine Beast with fairy weapons and Veronica to use her fairy to reach its heart. They eventually caught up to the beast and started fighting it. Marlya lost her fairy weapon and Veronica protected her and then went after the beast, but as she was going to hit him, she got pierced by one of it's tentacles. Marlya went to her and Veronica told her that she wanted to attend for all the bad things she done and use her life for Marlya's sake. Veronica then managed to stood up and pushed Marlya in a hole, as the Divine Beast attack came and turned her to dust, but saving Marlya. Veronica's fairy then went into Marlya and fused with Ash Clad. Moments later Free came and they went after the Divine Beast. Marlya told him about Ver and that she needed him to cut the Divine Beast and she will defeat him. As they caught up to him, Free started fighting him and eventually wounded him on the chest. Using the opportunity, Marlya summoned her new fairy and it went inside the Divine Beast, where it attacked his heart and freed the fairy, eradicating the beast. Free went to Marlya, who told him that one day the fairies will leave them and that they also lost things they won't be able to replace. Free told her that if they remember them, then they will never fade away. He then wanted to know about Veronica, so he can remember her too and they will pass it along, so they don't forget.
