Wild Arms 2
Marivel (originally Mariabelle in the Japanese version) is a near-immortal Crimson Noble, a type of vampire. One thousand years ago, she was friends with Anastasia Valeria, the Sword Magess, and helped her defeat the demon, Lord Blazer. Oddly, it was during this encounter that she first met Ashley Winchester in a dimensional rift, an encounter that left enough of an impression on her that she sought him out 1000 years later.
Marivel aids ARMS at numerous points, giving information about the nature of the monsters in the world, repairing Kanon's cybernetics, and the like. Marivel is also a technological genius, as evidenced by her use of Hob, Knob, Qubeley, Asgard, and Lucifer. Her innate powers come from her ability to learn any spell-like abilities from monsters that she defeats, making her similar to a Blue Mage from the Final Fantasy series.
With all her abilities and knowledge it may be natural to assume her aloof and arrogant manner is genuine, but this is not the case. Marivel is scared to make friends, having outlived all the ones she's known in life. She's even outlived most of her Crimson Noble brethren and the loneliness and distance depresses her tremendously. With great reluctance, she does indeed eventually make new friendships, particularly with Tony Stark and Scott Summers of Meria.
As a playable character, Marivel is "optional," and isn't needed to complete the main story of Wild Arms 2. However, Marivel is required to fulfill many of the game's secrets and hidden bosses, as her tools are the ones that unlock special areas, summon unusual monsters, and so on. Several details of the ending of the game also change, depending on whether or not Marivel is a part of the party.

Wild Arms: Twilight Venom
Though Mirabelle Graceland is a Crimson Noble and shares similar names, the two are not intended to be the same character and have notable differences between them, particularly in attitudes.
A character named Miriabelle Armitage is mentioned in the episode "The Days of the Bacchus" as being the founder of the Crimson Noble race, and is clearly meant to be an homage to this character (due to some bizarre romanization problems).
Wild Arms 5
Marivel has a cameo running the game's black market. In order to buy things from here you must trade in your character levels (by letting Marivel feed on you) in order to get rare and important goods. She's definitely pulling the full-on "Crimson Noble" here.
