Marian is a childhood friend of Jimmy and Billy. Marian was the damsel in distress of the earlier Double Dragon games. In the 1995 Double Dragon fighting game, she is depicted as a gang leader was (based on the movie). She uses the street gang that she's in control of to fight the crime in the city, all while enjoying cultured interests such as drugs and figure skating (which factors into her abilities). She fights using a street fighting style with techniques based on figure skating.

Umm.... What did she say? You'll strike a blow with your "MoonDrive" Technique? Go home Double Dragon, you're drunk. The good old days of bad translation never gets old. (But that might've been intended humor?) God I love SNK fighting games, even when they're bad.

Marian's design began as a damsel in distress in the original Double Dragon beat-em-up... so it's pretty cool she trained up her self defense (via martial arts) and stepped into the ring to beat up some Bad Dudes. (Nostalgia reference thrown in for the retro gamers / 80's kids.) Overall, Marian seems slightly inspired by Street Fighter's Cammy. Marian's walking forward and walking backward animations and general build are definitely inspired by Cammy (not a bad character to be inspired by). Overall, Marian is a pretty simple design for a female fighter, but still cool. She also reminds me of Blue Mary.
