Main article: Maribelle/Supports


Maribelle, Dire Damsel (single ending)
After returning home to Themis, Maribelle became a magistrate who demanded equal justice for nobles and commoners alike.

Chrom, Newly Exalted & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
After Grima's defeat, Chrom was officially welcomed as Ylisse's new exalt. Queen Maribelle kept him always on his toes while she strove tirelessly to become a magistrate and reform the halidom's laws.

Robin, High Deliverer & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of his origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—he loved his wife, Maribelle, above all else.

Frederick, Cold Lieutenant & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
As Ylisse's new knight captain, Frederick took charge of keeping the peace and training new recruits. His wife, Maribelle, did her own part for Ylisse by studying hard and becoming a respected magistrate.

Virion, Archest Archer & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Virion returned home to Rosanne, where he was labeled a traitor and a coward, or else ignored entirely. But his wife, Maribelle, treated the people fairly and equally, and in time, they learned to forgive him.

Stahl, Viridian Knight & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Stahl continued his service as an Ylissean knight and led crucial missions across the realm. Maribelle was quick to whip his scatterbrained nature out of him, and the two lived a long and happy life.

Vaike, Zero to Hero & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Vaike returned to the streets that raised him and was welcomed as a hero and brother to all. But people were fonder still of Maribelle, who worked tirelessly to win them equal rights in the eyes of the law.

Kellam, Oft Forgotten & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
After returning home to Themis, Maribelle became a magistrate who demanded equal justice for nobles and plebeians alike. Her husband's name has been lost to history.

Lon'qu, Gynophobe & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Lon'qu returned to Regna Ferox and served as Basilio's right-hand man. Maribelle, for her part, could not stand her new home's nonsensical laws and eventually guided both khans to an era of reform.

Ricken, Upcoming Mage & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
While continuing to study magic, Ricken realized how childish some of his actions had been. Maribelle went on to be a magistrate, and the couple leaned on each other for the rest of their days.

Gaius, Candy Stealer & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Gaius never lost his sweet tooth, though he ultimately returned to less savory enterprises. Having studied to become a magistrate, Maribelle feared the day she would meet her own husband in court.

Gregor, Swell Sword & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
After the war, Gregor briefly sank into a life of excess, but fear of his wife's verbal abuse led him to resume work as a sellsword. Maribelle's family never approved of Gregor, and he never cared.

Libra, Fetching Friar & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Many an unfortunate child found joy in the small orphanage Libra and his wife built after the war. Sadly, Maribelle's sharp tongue and proud attitude rubbed off on the tykes, making them quite the handful.

Henry, Twisted Mind & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Henry settled down with Maribelle and turned out to be a surprisingly good father. Their newborn son inherited his mother's noble blood—but also her sharp tongue, as time would reveal.

Donnel, Village Hero & Maribelle, Dire Damsel
Donnel returned to his tiny village and built a happy life with his mother and Maribelle. Still, he was careful not to pester his new bride about working in the fields, lest she lift a scythe for other reasons.

Against Micaiah in Champions of Yore 1

Against Micaiah in Champions of Yore 3

DLC battle quotes

Honestly, I'm a bit shocked a princess like Lissa had to save gold on the side. But I'm MORE shocked at you! Why didn't you steal from me? DO I look poor to you? DO I?!
— Maribelle, in The Golden Gaffe.
Have you no shame? Ransacking other people's property is so low class! Perhaps if you apologized, I might overlook your transgressions...What's wrong? Bandages in your mouth? Oh well!
— Maribelle, in EXPonential Growth.
Oh, you have a fancy name and a nice round number at your disposal... But all I see are a pack of hounds made to guard their master's treasure! ...Hmm? Why are your eyes glowing like that, darling? Was it something I said?
— Maribelle, in Infinite Regalia.
Lissa cried for you when she saw what was done to your families. It must be so hard for her to have to fight the same people she mourns for... If dispatching you swiftly will spare her more pain, then that is what I must do.
— Maribelle, in Death's Embrace.
You brutes have some nerve materializing in an inferno like this! Why, I can hardly breathe, let alone fight comfortably! Has no one forewarned you of what happens when I lost my temper?!
— Maribelle, in Five-Anna Firefight.
I am, of course, far too noble to have any embarrassing secrets. I sleep quite soundly knowing that I am the absolute pinnacle of propriety! ...What is that look? Don't tell me the book suggests otherwise?!
— Maribelle, in Roster Rescue.
The baseborn do know how to entertan themselves, I'll give them that... Perhaps Lissa and I could share tea and bringa little class to the place. Of course, we'll need to be rid of rabble like you first!
— Maribelle, in Summer Scramble.
Oh my... Not even the manor had a bath this spacious. Something about being wrapped in this steam makes me want to hum a tune... How about "The Ballad of the Bashed-In Risen"? I devised it but seconds ago.
— Maribelle, in Hot-Spring Scramble.
