Marissa is the mother of Princess Rosella, and they were separated for ten years after Rosella was shipwrecked on an island. When Rosella was brought back to civilization by Prince Antonio, the prince of Apollonia, a neighboring kingdom of Paladia, Marissa came to the Apollonia to attend his wedding to Princess Luciana, who he was betrothed to. Marissa and Rosella were reunited while they were both in the kingdom. Meanwhile, Rosella and Antonio had fallen in love, and were soon married, so Antonio became Marissa's son-in-law.
