The two later start to fall in love after meeting the 2nd time in the castle. Then Marjoly appears to get back Ferdinand for beating Myao, instantly falls in love with him and tries to teleport him to her castle, but screws up the spell and accidentally turns him to stone, and he's stuck that way till Cornet breaks the spell at the end of the game.

-->Voiced by Creator/MichieTomizawa (Japanese), Creator/LaraJillMiller (as Carrie Gordon-Lowrey, English)

She is malevolent and very conceited, with lyrics in her song "Evil Queen" describing herself to be "mightier than the god...more beautiful than the goddess". She fell in love with Prince Ferdinand (immediately after seeing him the first time) and meant to teleport him only to turn him into stone.
Tropes associated with Marjoly:
* AbsoluteCleavage
* BadBoss: Frequently bickers with her underlings, often threatening them. But it works both ways as they have no respect for her and belittle her every chance they get.
* BigBouncyBreasts: To the extreme!
* ChristmasCake: Related to her InformedDeformity, but also played up due to Japan's obsession with youth and beauty. Marjoly is frequently insulted as being an old hag - in fact, she looks like she might be in her thirties, [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave or possibly some rockin' forties]]. [[NoYay Though that's probably still way too old for the type of guys she tries to grab]].
* DirtyOldWoman: She likes young lads way too much.
-->"Tell me boy, how about spending an unforgettable night with me?"
** Her own lackeys enjoy pointing out in the middle of her song that she's old enough to be Ferdinand's mother.
* EvilIsPetty: Is quick to go fly into rage if insulted, which happens a lot because her minions have no respect for her.
* HighCollarOfDoom
* HotWitch
* IneptMage: She is prone to MagicMisfire, aside from the mentioned above of turning Ferdinand, there's also when fighting the ancient weapon where she screws up a spell and literally knocks herself out.
** Although, for all that she is inept at being effective in battle, if she DOES hit you with a spell it will hurt. A lot. Her raw magical power is undeniable.
** Dropped entirely in her playable Disgaea cameos. She's no more inept then any more then any other spell caster in that game.
* InformedDeformity: The other characters insist that she looks really old and that she does not have the body to wear that kind of outfit.
** Her Disgaea cameos also state she wears far too much make-up instead, in addition to calling her old.
* LaughablyEvil: she tries to be threatening, but through a combination of her own stupitidy, the fact that her own minions don't take her seriously and mock her at every chance possible (which there are many), make scenes with her the funniest parts of the game.
* {{Narcissist}}
* NobleDemon: Neither her or her lackeys are bad people.
* {{Noblewomans Laugh}}
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Her entire introduction treats her as a joke, but then Cornet calls her an old maid and Majoraly sicks all her minions on her. Cue a HopelessBossFight.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: 1509 years old.
* {{Stripperific}}: Her outfit. Seriously.
** Averted when she appears in ''Antiphona''. While her [[ new outfit]] still evokes an EvilIsSexy image, the fact that it's a dress that actually covers most of her "assets" is absolutely astonishingly.
* VainSorceress
* VillainessesWantHeroes: Her "love" for Ferdinand.

-->Voiced by Creator/YukariTamura (Japanese), Sara Thomas (English)
