Marialis is the Gemon head of the Gemon Matriarchs in 7360. She is described as being tall and slender, having "bright and lively eyes" in contrast with her characteristically pale disposition, and a charismatic quality that gave her the ability to make "her every comment seem inarguable"[1].

Marialis, Cassiopeia and other members of the Gemon Matriarchs arrange for Guinevere to be present on Galactica's bridge[2], from where Lieutenant Colonel Athena would declare her nomination as commander of the Fleet[3], a nomination seconded by Marialis herself[4] (RH: Armageddon).

Notes

  • The name "Marialis" is from the Latin, loosely translated in English as "Marian." Typically, "Marialis" is aligned with the Mariological studies within the Roman Catholic Church, c.f. Marialis Cultus. The name is likely derived from this source, in keeping with the Original Series' tradition of utilizing names from various mythologies.
