Marian (マリオン, Marion) is a bachelorette in Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.



Marian is a wild and vivacious young witch who lives with her grandmother, Marjorie.

Marian is a young girl who wishes to break the stereotype of witches being scary. Marian loves giving people shots and often asks Micah if she can administer one to him. She works in the town's apothecary, but is an amateur in medicine and usually needs her grandmother's help. She is friends with Collette and always tries her experiments on her, much to Collette's dismay. 

Marian always believed that she wasn't a very good witch because she always needed help from her grandmother, Marjorie. In reality, Marian is a very powerful witch, even stronger than Marjorie. The syringe she carries actually suppresses her true power so that it does not get out of control.


Marian has light blue (mistakenly colored as turquoise in the artwork) hair tied into pigtails with purple tube and covered in purple witch bonnet, with cowlicks in braids. Her bangs are curtained and she has red eyes.


At first, Marian dreams high as she watches how Marjorie can make anyone feel better after giving them medication. Marian used to practice magic in the town plaza, but always destroyed things because her magic is dangerously 'unpredictable,' like her personality. She was given large syringe by Marjorie to control her magic and prevent her from using any magic while she plays doctor.

Marian wants to sign her vegetable up for the seasonal Crop Festival. When Colette asks her "Marian... what's that?" Marian will answer "Can't you tell by looking? It's my piece," and the '???' will say "I'm a turnip." Colette will be shocked to see that kind of vegetable "It can talk??" Marian asks if all vegetables taste good, and Colette responds with "Of course!" The turnip then says "Thank you." Marian has created a partially 'illegal' vegetable to be entered in the festival. Aside from the fact that the turnip would paralyze its eater, she would be competing against normal vegetables that cannot talk. And thus she has created an impossible impact on the biological features of all botanical institutes.

On the Turnip Festival, before it starts, Marian says that she has created a turnip that paralyzes things on contact, but she ends up losing because she accidentally 'paralyzed' herself before throwing it.

In the quest "Marian: Capture Plan," Marian has concocted an actual 'effective' medication. She gives Micah a sip of her 'special' tea. Then as like before, Micah 'sort' of has to heed her words. They have to give shots to at least 5 people from Sharance. If they talked to them, Marian will gave them a shot. This is excluding Blaise and Rusk for using Tomatoes against her, Gaius and Evelyn for calling them a 'rowdy couple,' causing Marian to walk away blushing, and Shino for being both too lovely and scary at the same time. Marjorie is also excluded, as is Wells for successfully dodging her 'attack'. After she finishes giving the shots, she realizes they had no effect whatsoever.  Even though it gives out no effect, this is Marian's first form of administration that doesn't backfire or cause someone to explode. Thus it is categorized as a 'contribution'.

  • In one of Marjorie's requests, she requires you to make an omelet and ketchup. You find out that Marjorie secretly puts in tomatoes in her dishes and that Marian actually doesn't hate the taste of tomatoes as much as she thought.
  • It is possible that Marian took over as town doctor for Majorie by the time of Rune Factory 4, as suggested in Raven's dialog.
