Mariko was once a human girl that was raised by her master who was a powerful magician. He taught her the ways of magic and soon at a very young age, Mariko became a inhuman witch. By "The Way of the Witch", Mariko had to leave her master and go on her own, even though leaving her studies incomplete. She once had to go to a sacred magical ritual that requires witches to transfer their magic into the Earth creating Mana, the power source of all magic. But from some strange force, she was shoved into the core and her body painfully sucked in all the magical energy. Because of this, her powers are now 10x more powerful then they once were and she even gained the power to control mana, the very essence of magic. Because of this, she was later hunted down by the guardian Mia MaJikku, to seal her away into the Southern Border. There Mariko had some issues with the ruler and ended up killing him, making her princess, even though she had a life of luxury, it was still in a world filled with pain and dread. After discovering a large magical grimoire, she was able to find a spell that allows her to go past the Southern Border's Sacred field. She was then able to freely walk about Hayashi again, however Mia still searches for her endlessly always sending her back. But as long Mariko has that book, she can always enter Hayashi and leave the hell she was tossed into
Mariko is a novice witch however despite this fact she is rather powerful. But not being too expert in magic she has more raw power then anything.
She's always seen carrying a book strapped to her back, this book is a large grimoire she found in the Southern Border. Mariko can be sweet, however she can be rather cowardly unless she's facing against Mia who she sees as a rival and enemy, when fighting her she becomes rather determined and demonic as well.
Mariko's power is abnormal compared to normal witches due to an accident that happened 5 years ago. Because of this she's nervous about using her full power and relies on simple spells so that she can focus on making the spells more powerful instead of accidently overpowering powerful spells. Despite this she uses crystal magic, a very powerful type of magic that needs high mana concentration from the user, which is no problem for her since she can control mana itself.
Because of her power and unstablability she lacks friends and people who can trust her. The only people that have befriended her is Gen and Chrysanthemum, who is her advisor and assistant respectivaly. Infact she has more enemies then anything with people trying to always kill her or send her away... However it's come to a realization that Mariko maybe having a relationship with Kei, this relationship was at first negative with the two fighting, but then it turned positive as Kei began to fall in love with Mariko.
Mariko also sees Zenzei as an idol. She's always looking up to Zenzei in her power and skill, knowing that she has abilities that can easily defeat her in seconds. However despite how powerful Zenzei is, Mariko is still stronger in mana concentration.
Being someone so young and new to magic, and yet have so much power inside of her, it is easy for her to get confused and stressed. When she reaches a certian stress level, corruption occurs. This "corruption" is when her mana begins to rely on black magic and altering her mind and body. She becomes almost unstoppable at this point, becoming a monster. The only way for her to revert back is to cut off the supply of black magic the mana in the air is creating for her, only highly skilled magicians are capable of attempting this. When the magic is cut off, Mariko will go into a sudden shock which brings her into a temporary death-state, but is revived seconds later by being feed clean pure mana from the earth. This doesn't just harm others but herself, black magic damages the mind and soul of whoever abuses its power.
Mariko's Forte in Magic

After explaining how she feels so upset of not having a forte in magic, Kimi replied about something with crystals!
