Your being a Magic Knight is what makes me proud! So continue to be the brother that I'm proud of!

— To Gauche Adlai in Siblings

Marie Adlai 「マリー・アドレイ Marī Adorei」 is the younger sister of Gauche Adlai[1] and lives in Nairn under the care of Theresa Rapual.[2]


Marie is a young girl with short blonde hair and purple eyes. She wears a purple dress.



Gauche and Marie as nobles

House Adlai.

Marie was born as the second child of House Adlai. Sometime after her birth, her parents died in an accident, and another noble inherits their wealth and casts out her and her older brother Gauche, who does everything to protect her, killing and stealing as needed.[3] When Gauche is imprisoned, Marie is sent to an orphanage in Nairn.

Through a mirror, Gauche is watching Marie while she sleeps before Asta arrives at the Black Bull's headquarters.[1][4]

Asta plays with the children

Marie plays with Asta, Marco, and Ruka.

On her tenth birthday, she is playing with Asta, Marco, and Ruka when Gauche arrives with bags of toys. Jealous, Gauche stomps on Asta, and Marie tells him to stop and declares that Asta will be her husband, which shatters Gauche and angers him more. Sister Theresa then arrives to collect Marie, and after Theresa and Gauche trade insults, Marie leaves with her.[5]

Later that night, snow covers the town and enchants many of the children, including Marie, and they wander out of the town.[6] When they reach the caves, Neige happily greets them, but Marie, who is freed from the spell's control, tells him that friends do not control each other like puppets. Losing his temper, Neige hits her, but Baro stops him and checks the children's mana, noticing that Marie has the most.[7]

After several of the children are drained of their mana, Marie is selected and Neige starts dragging her to the machine. Gauche then arrives and, seeing his sister's injured cheek, fires a light beam at Neige.[8] After Asta and Theresa arrive, the Sister gathers the children together and heals them.[9] As Gauche kicks the defeated Neige, Marie pleads for him to stop but he refuses.[10]

Marie punches Gauche

Marie punches Gauche.

Gauche grabs Marie and flies away after Sally arrives and turns Baro into a monster.[11] Marie demands that they go back, but Gauche refuses because he would not be able to protect her.[12] She punches him and tells him that she hates when he is like this, and that she likes him for being a Magic Knight who protects others. They encounter Marco at the cave entrance, and Gauche leaves Marie in his care.[13]

Finral Roulacase transports the injured and the children back to Nairn, where Marie stands next to her brother and watches as healers take care of Theresa.[14] After Theresa passes her remaining mana to Gauche, Marie offers hers, too.[15]

Gauche visits Theresa

Marie tells Gauche to stop fighting.

After the battle, Gauche visits Theresa, who is still recovering, and Marie has to tell them to stop fighting. She then cheers as Asta arrives, which angers her brother.[16] After Rebecca kisses Asta, Marie wants to kiss him as well, so Gauche tries to kill the boy.[17]

When the Black Bulls travel to Raque, Gauche shows his sister the beach. She mentions wanting to play with Asta, which causes Gauche to attack the boy.[18]

Several weeks later, Marie is playing with Marco when she begins to glow brightly.[19]

Battle Prowess


  • Magic Power: Marie has more mana than other children her age,[20] but it is not fully developed, meaning she can easily be placed under even weak enchantments.[21]


  • Mirror: Marie carries with her one of her brother's mirrors.[22] It is usually used as communication device, allowing her to see and talk to her brother,[1] but could also be used to track her location or protect her from enchantment.[23]



Gauche Adlai


Marie has a crush on Asta, as she declares that he will be her husband,[24] and tries to kiss him after Rebecca does.[17]
