In Marion's debut episode, she is against Sora just like everyone else. But mostly, she is upset when she sees Sora on the trampolines while training for her role as a Fairy Godmother in Cinderella. She does not want anyone using the trampolines since they remind her so much of her deceased mother and because of her strong belief that no one would be able to perform like her mother.

Before Sora joined Kaleido Stage, Marion's mother was a trampoline performer and was quite famous. But one night, when she had to go to perform, Marion was ill and she begged her mother to stay. On stage, she was involved in a fatal accident that ended her career, as well as her life, leaving Marion completely heartbroken. But after seeing how related Sora and her mother are, Marion quickly changes her attitude and becomes Sora's friend and supporter.

For the rest of the first season, she is always seen with the baby seal Johnathan, that Sora finds in a later episode, on her head. The two are never seperated.
