Appearance and Personality
Queen Marina is a mermaid, with the upper body of a beautiful human woman and the lower body of a white fish. She has regal and refined features with purple eyes and long blonde hair, on which she wears a tiara decorated with pearls, along with gold hoop earrings with dangling green gemstones. She wears a choker around her neck and bracelets, all of which are made out of golden scales. Her top consists of white and salmon-colored cloth wrapped around her chest and held together with a red gemstone brooch and golden beads, along with a long white cape which reaches down to her tail. The ends of the cloth flow behind her like ribbons. On her lower body, she wears a golden chain made up of various loops and beads over a long skirt made of the same salmon cloth as her top. The queen's scepter is a gnarled staff made out of blue coral with a purple handle, topped with a large white pearl.
She is intrigued by the tenacity and spirit of humankind and laments the fact that humans and mermaids cannot remain in love, due to their differences and the long lifespan of mermaids compared to that of humans. For many years, the queen has sought a way to break this curse, but to no avail. She has great faith in the World Tree, believing that it was Yggdrasil's will that brought Michelle and Kai together, as well as leading the Luminary to meeting her. Like every other mermaid in Erdrea, Queen Marina speaks in rhymes.
The Luminary and his companions first encounter Queen Marina after the events with Michelle the mermaid. Due to her gift of second sight, she has knowledge of many things which occur on the surface world of Erdrea, including the fact that the Luminary is the lost prince of Dundrasil, something which surprises Erik. As thanks for his kindness towards Michelle, the queen gives the Luminary the Green Orb.
