I need to protect Laios, Falin, and the others...
I must protect them...!
Marcille Donato[1]

Marcille Donato (マルシル・ドナトー Marushiru Donatō?)[8] is an half-elven mage and member of Laios' party. She hopes to find a way to create a safe dungeon.

Appearance[]

Marcille is a half-elf with long blonde hair, green eyes and rounded elves ears, an indication of her being a half-elf. In her normal dungeon attire, she wears a long blue dress with white pants, a blue cowl, a red choker, and sandals. She styles her hair differently every day.[citation needed] She is taller than Chilchuck and Senshi, but shorter than Falin and Laios.[9]

Personality[]

Marcille is intelligent, principled, and loyal to her friends. Despite this, she can also be very high-strung and has a difficult time dealing with things far outside her comfort zone (such as eating monsters).[10] She has a lot of confidence in her ability to cast magic due to her background, so she feels insecure when she is unable to help the party with her specialty, to the point where she may endanger everyone just to 'prove herself'.[11]

She can also feel a bit self-conscious when using dark magic, which she knows to be illegal, as shown with her nervousness when telling her other party members about her plans to revive Falin. When others look down on her for using dark magic, she has a tendency to feel extremely guilty about it, as shown when she faced Shuro's anger at the methods taken to revive Falin. Despite this, she seems confident that her methods, though taboo, may be the most promising for the future.[12]

She can also be somewhat naïve, believing that friendships alone can keep a party together and frequently trying to learn more about her party members and their personal lives, especially when it comes to Chilchuck. She can be very pushy with this, but her curiosity seems to be genuine and not malicious.[13]

She has deep fear and complex about losing people as her half-elf blood means she will outlive most if not all her friends and loved ones. Not helping the fact is that while she is half-elf from her mother's side she predominantly lives in the "human" world with very little connection to the Elf world. Many Elves look down on her for her half-blood status.

A large part of her trauma stems from her childhood; while she was born when her father was a young man her slowed aging meant that by the time she developed enough to form memories her father had become an old man. While she spent decades with him, to her he was only around for a short time. As a result her only memories of him are that of him slowly dying and withering away while her mother became devastated by the loss. This left a traumatic impact on her which led to her complex of eventually losing everyone she loved and dying alone.

Abilities[]

Marcille is a magic user who appears to specialize in fire-type magic,[14] relying mostly on explosion spells to defeat enemies.[15][16][17][18] She is, however, able to cast other spells, such as stunning/flash spells,[19][20] protection spells,[21] and a spell that enables walking on water.[22] Her healing spells are very quick and effective,[23] although her patients tend to complain that the pain of healing hurts more than the wound did.[23] She is also able to make protective wards against possession or being turned into a zombie. She can create familiars from scratch, and also appears to be knowledgeable in appraisal and dispelling curses on items.[citation needed][24][25] She appears well-versed in written magic as well,[26] including drawing magic circles.[27] Marcille is technically referred to as a 'hybrid' magician, due to the fact that she can utilise both gnomish and elven styles of magic.[28]

Her field of expertise, however, is the study of ancient magic/black magic.[29] She uses this on two occasions: to bring Falin back from the dead[30] and to dispel the magic holding the Lunatic Magician's miniature dragons together.[31]

Marcille can do headspins.[32]

Relationships[]

Falin Touden[]

"Friend"

Falin is Marcille's closest friend. She thinks very highly of Falin, calling her incredible and an angel because of her spell-casting ability and kind nature. She enters the dungeon again despite the party's dire circumstances because of how much she cares about her, and they are shown to have been childhood friends since they were both in Magic School. In the end, Marcille values ​​their bonds so much that she is even willing to risk her life if necessary to save Falin from the most difficult and dangerous situations.[33]

Laios Touden[]

"Well, really, what can you do?"

Although she is often exasperated with Laios' antics, she trusts him greatly as a friend. When Laios intervenes in Marcille's dreams to save her from Nightmares, it's revealed that in Marcille's recollection of the dream, she saw Laios as a silly-looking but harmless puppy who cheered her up, implying Marcille sees Laios as goofy but kind-hearted and comforting.[34]

Chilchuck[]

"He's dependable."

As fellow party member, Marcille and Chilchuck respect each other's skills. But Marcille can frustrate Chilchuck by treating him like a child, due to his race's young appearance (despite his being a fully grown adult half-foot). Chilchuck, on the other hand, can frustrate Marcille with his teasing or mean comments about her daily behaviour (e.g., when Marcille wants to shampoo her hair, Chilchuck suggests she shave it all off). She is also particularly interested in Chilchuck's personal life because he adamantly does not share it with the group.[35][citation needed]

Senshi[]

"Stubborn!"

She has a good relationship with Senshi, particularly after she made soap out of kelpie fat to wash his beard. Though she doesn't like eating monsters, she respects Senshi's cooking skills. Their different opinions on magic sometimes causes them to butt heads.[citation needed]

Izutsumi[]

"Kitten"

Marcille is shown to be an almost motherly figure to Izutsumi, taking care of her while in the Golden Kingdom and offering to share the bed when Izutsumi couldn't with anyone else (shown in an extra).[citation needed] Her care for Izutsumi may be due to her being a short-lived race, as Marcille also dotes on Chilchuck, a half-foot.[citation needed]

Shuro[]

"He's trying to woo Falin (grr)."

Namari[]

"I don't think she likes me."

When Namari chose to leave the group, Marcille considered this a betrayal. However, she warmed back up to Namari after she showed that she still cared about their team.[citation needed]

Winged Lion[]

"The only way to make my dream come true..."

Marcille and the Winged Lion have a complicated relationship. She thought that the Winged Lion could make her dream come true, though she ended up realizing she was being corrupted due to his powers and gave up her position of being a Dungeon Lord relatively quickly.[citation needed]

Trivia[]

  • Her favorite foods are seafoods and nuts.
  • Her least favorite type of food is any sort of weird food.
  • Her first death within a dungeon was suffocation by a slime.
  • Her parents are court magicians.[36]
  • Her greatest fear is that the things most precious to her will pass away before she does.[37]
    • The death of her pet bird Pipi was her first experience of one of her loved ones dying.[38]
  • She named her staff Ambrosia (アンブロシア Anburoshia?).[39]
  • She has a well-versed knowledge of tall-man and canine skeletal systems.[40]
  • She enjoys dancing.[41]
  • According to Chilchuck, Marcille likely uses magic every time she goes to the bathroom. As whenever she does it's unnaturally silent when compared to other party members.[42]
  • She cares deeply about the ones she loves.
  • Marcille's pet bird Pipi, was originally owned by her mother from before she was born.[38]
  • Marcille is a huge fan of the in-universe romance novel series, The Daltian Clan, and eagerly spreads the word about it.[43] She has the complete series in her room at the magic school.[44]
    • Marcille even recommended the series to Falin and was hoping that she too would become a fan. Falin fell asleep reading halfway through the second volume and never finished reading the series.[45]
    • She also recommended the series to both Laios and Chilchuck to help them understand "the way of the heart".[46]
  • Due to the dishes that are shown when Marcille talks about how squids can be made including some Italian dishes, Marcille's Home Town Local Cuisine being a pasta dish in its original form (the dish was made incorrectly) and her family name of Donato seemingly being taken from the birth name of the Italian sculptor Donatello (he was born as Donato di Betto Bardi), it is possible that the region Marcille was born in is inspired by Italy.
  • Marcille's constant usage of explosion spells could possibly be a reference to a common running gag in the Dungeons and Dragons community, of wizards using the Fireball spell in every possible situation to an excessive degree.[47][48] An example is when Marcille proposed to use "a gentle explosion" to deal with ghosts.
