"You're...putting a lot of faith in the person who almost got you killed, you know. I'm not a good person." ― Arianna Marcel

Arianna Marcel[]

Arianna Marcel is a mage and bounty hunter with a blunt personality. She favors action over words. She claims to be a member of the Black Wings Mercenaries.

You won’t like her when she’s angry (and she’s always angry).[1]


Arianna has light skin and blonde hair. She has purplish-pink eyes that glow red when she's using magic. They seem to become bluer as the comic progresses.

Arianna is first seen wearing a cloak, but she later gives it to Vector in the forest. She wears a red turtle neck, with a black cow-neck scarf over it. She wears a black belt with a pouch and a red magi gem. She also wears a black headband and black stud earrings.


Arianna isn't a good person, but she's definitely not a bad one. Arianna is a gruff and blunt young woman, with a taste for getting into fights. She often does things only for her personal gain, but comes to regret her decisions after.

She often yells at others if they inconvenience her. Usually her insults hit rather close to home to her targets.

She also seems to over estimate herself quite a bit, which gets her into a lot more trouble. She gets cocky and lets her guard down, allowing others to fight back.

While she seems mean and angry it is shown she has somewhat of a soft side.


Arianna is a mage who supposedly died prior to the beginning of the comic.

Prior to the beginning of the comic, she and her unnamed brother ran away from home with her older brother. She was too young to remember who her parents were, but remembers her brother very clearly. Her brother took a job at The Capitol as a courier. He was put to death for high treason.[2]

From that point on, Arianna lived on the streets, begging for food. She sadly didn't get any help, though the Black Wings Mercenaries took her in, teaching her how to fight. With them she learned how to use magic. Eventually they began to take her on missions with them which leads to where she is currently in the comic.[3]

She is first introduced looking for a magic book in Marion Jacobs' bookstore. She runs into a panicking Vector and gets her book. She is surprisingly not afraid of him. She later realizes that Vector is wanted and turns him in for bounty and "personal reasons". She implies that the said personal reasons may be to get into the Capitol. Her motives and what she plans to do remain a mystery; it's implied that it might have something to do with a person she lost. It may be related to Zera Marcel.

After turning Vector in, she learns that he's going to get the death sentence and steps in. During Vector's panic, he forms a hot, magic orb. While Arianna tries to calm him down, Vector transports himself and Arianna into the forest.

After spending the night with Marina and Rori, she tells Vector that her brother ran away with her when she was just a baby and he was killed for "attempted assassination" when he was around 15.

Arianna is currently trying to get Vector home.



Vector and Arianna have a complex relationship. Arianna can be rude to Vector as she often is with most people. She will often taunt Vector, but their relationship is inching away from routed in contempt. Ultimately, Arianna is not afraid of Vector and is looking out for him currently.


Frankie and Arianna do not get along at all. At first, Arianna was okay, but confused with Frankie's sunny personality. After Frankie's accidental attack, Arianna has been yelling at him. She thinks he's a liar for not telling her that he's a robot. Frankie is fairly submissive to her verbal abuse.


It is unclear how Zera and Arianna are related, but they have the same last name, and it seems that Zera knew Arianna around fifteen years ago. Zera has stated that she and Arianna were once very close. Zera is currently searching for Arianna. Zera is theorized to be the husband of her older brother, being her older brother, or just being very close to her when they were young.


Rori and Arianna got off on the wrong foot. Rori snatched her magigem. Ari doesn’t have the best relationship with Rori, and she views her more as a little pest.


  • Arianna is Demisexual
  • Arianna is very bad at tic-tac-toe
  • Arianna's face does not hurt from being angry all the time due to her face muscles being used to it (From: Soft Bakery Vibes~ Coloring May's mail club postcard!)
