As a descendent of the Finalis Clan, Morgiana possesses immense physical strength and agility. She joins Aladdin and Alibaba in their journey some time after leaving Jamil's side.
She was kidnapped from her homeland and sold into slavery. Her past was brutal when Jamil tortures her and the other slaves for his amusement.
Morgiana was created by Shinobu Ohtaka as one of the main characters in the Magi franchise. Her name, مَرجانة Marjāna (from the word مَرجان Marjān "Coral"), is based on a slave girl from Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves chapter that is part of the One Thousand and One Nights. In the folktale, Morgiana serves Alibaba as his slave. In comparison with Shinobu Ohtaka's works, Morgiana is Alibaba's companion.
Due to some debate between fans, the author or her staff has released a concept art that states that Morgiana does not wear any undergarments.
She first appears in volume 1: chapter 4 and episode 1. She is voiced by Haruka Tomatsu in the Japanese version while she is voiced by Cristina Vee in the American version.
Like her race in the Dark Continent, she has bright red hair, red eyes, and thick eyelashes with a distinct hook. Unlike the female Fanalis in Magi, her hair has a notable pink shade. She wears a ragged, brown dress that is tied at the waist. While she wears no shoes, she has straps around her ankle that reaches her knees. She wears a necklace, a gift from Alibaba during the World Exploration arc.
She is stoic and rarely shows any emotions due to her upbringing by Jamil. As she spends more time with Aladdin and Alibaba as their friends, she starts to warm up to them and other folks.
Note: These arcs are from the manga. For anime, please see episode wiki pages.
She first meet Alibaba and Aladdin at the slave market where Aladdin attempts to free her from her ankle cuffs. Though, Budel arrives to chase Aladdin and Alibaba out. Later on, Morgiana reveals Alibaba and Aladdin's location to her master, Jamil, in the dungeon. As she, Jamil, and Goltas take Aladdin, Jamil uses Alibaba to lead the way. After Alibaba falls into a trap door, Morgiana uses her acute sense of smell to lead Jamil through the dungeon until they reach a fork that leads to three paths. Jamil orders Morgiana to watch Aladdin while he and Goltas venture forward. When Aladdin tries to make Morgiana laugh, Morgiana laughs a bit. She informs Aladdin about her homeland and Alibaba's demise. However, she finds out that Alibaba is alive and goes after the two. Though, Aladdin and Alibaba escape.
Deep in the dungeon, Morgiana tracks down Alibaba and Aladdin. When Jamil shouts for Morgiana's help after Alibaba defeat Jamil in a sword fight, Morgiana arrives to assist her master. Alibaba attempts to befriend Morgiana, but he gets thrown by Morgiana. Jamil orders Morgiana to finish off Alibaba. At first, Morgiana is hesitant as she remembers how Jamil brutally torture in the past. Aladdin arrives to save Alibaba by destroying Morgiana's sword. He binds Morgiana. After Amon is discovered, the tower crumbles when someone strikes it from the outside. Goltas frees Morgiana from her chains and tosses her to Alibaba and Aladdin. She watches Goltas carry Jamil and fall into the abyss.
After the dungeon is cleared, Alibaba tells Morgiana that she is free to do whatever she wants. Morgiana decides to go visit her homeland after thanking Alibaba.
Along the way, Morgiana runs into Leila and Sahsa's caravan. While she helps them, the group helps Morgiana reach Balbadd, but the caravan stops due to Fatima's stronghold. During a slave raid, Morgiana frees the slaves that Fatima had abducted, and at the same time, she reunites with Aladdin. Morgiana and Aladdin trek to Balbadd together, and then, the two encounter Sinbad. As Sinbad returns to his group, he asks Morgiana and Aladdin to help them put down the Fog Troupe. In return, Morgiana asks Sinbad to help them search for Alibaba.
During Fog Troupe raid, Morgiana and Aladdin are shocked that Alibaba is the leader of the Fog Troupe. After Alibaba escapes, Morgiana pursues him and kidnaps him. She has Alibaba and Aladdin talk, so the entire group can understand the situation better. A series of events, Sinbad defeats Alibaba and Cassim's Fog Troupe and lends his support and Alibaba's failed attempts at convincing his brother, leads up to Judar's battle with Aladdin where both Morgiana and Alibaba attempts to assist Aladdin. With Kougyoku's group saving Judar and leaving the battle, Morgiana helps take care of the injured Fog Troupe. In a small room, she runs into Alibaba who caught naked and looking at his crotch that is facing Morgiana's direction. As Alibaba's brother, Sahbmad Saluja, explains Ahbmad's plans, Morgiana is furious at Ahbmad's plans of selling his people into slavery to get out of debt with Kou Empire. She urges Alibaba to resolve this problem. In Aladdin's room, Morgiana finds Alibaba by Aladdin's side. Aladdin is still recuperating from his fight with Judar. Morgiana tells Alibaba that Aladdin sees him as his most respected friend. Next day, Morgiana helps Alibaba get into the Balbadd palace by engaging one of Kou Empire's monsters, Enshin. She finishes Enshin by smashing through the simian leader's chest, killing him instantly.
As a result of Alibaba's proposal of abolishing the monarchy in Balbadd, Cassim's group attack the Balbadd royalty. Morgiana and her group rush to stop the conflict. When Cassim becomes a black Djinn, Alibaba has Morgiana toss him multiple times to cut Cassim down. With their efforts in vain, Aladdin arrives and wins the battle using his Solomon of Wisdom. As the battle is finally over, Morgiana hugs Alibaba and Aladdin. In the aftermath, Morgiana and Aladdin join Sinbad and his group on a journey to Sindria.
In Sindria, she trains with Masrur for half a year until Sinbad comes home from his negotiations with Kou Empire. She, along with Alibaba and Aladdin, learn about Al Sarmen and their objectives. Later, she and her friends is introduced to the Sindria's Eight Generals during Maharagan (Mahrajan). During the celebration, Alibaba asks her if she wants to stay with him and Aladdin or go back to her homeland. Morgiana replies that she wants to help them fight Al Sarmen and save lives. When her two friends accept her, Morigiana is overjoyed and dance to her heart's content in front of the audience with the other women.
After Sinbad has noticed Alibaba's dagger is broken, he takes both Alibaba and Morgiana to the vault that is full of treasure. He asks Morigiana to select something that is made of metal as her Household Vessel. She chooses to use her ankle cuffs as the vessel because it represents the obligations to her friends. At first, she wears around her ankles, but she did not know how to use her weapon when the long chains almost choke Aladdin and Alibaba by accident. Inspired by her friends words, she decides to become their wings. Later, Morgiana and her group along with Hakuryuu are sent out to clear Zagan Dungeon based on Sinbad's request.
As Pisti aids Morgiana's group to the island, Morgiana's group run into the Toran people who talked about their people abducted by Zagan. After the group gets sucked in Zagan's dungeon, Morgiana's group venture deep in the dungeon where they encountered Zagan who splits the group into two after overhearing Hakuryuu's complaints of being saved by Morgiana and Alibaba and not being able to prove himself. Morgiana and Hakuryuu are paired up. Hakuryuu tells Morgiana to leave the golems to him. After witnessing Hakuryuu over-strain himself using Qi Manipulation, Morgiana aids Hakuryuu by throwing a golem at the other golem. She reminds Hakuryuu that she is fighting with him and that they are all in this together. When Hakuryuu loses consciousness, Morgiana carries him. Morgiana's group reunites with Aladdin and Alibaba at the end of the split paths. Zagan decides to take on Morgiana's group. After a trapdoor opens, Morgiana, Alibaba, and Aladdin fall towards Zagan's stomach. With Aladdin's turban torn apart, Morgiana finds herself about to lose her two most important friends. In the nick of time, she activates her Household Vessel's chains to hook to the walls to save her friends from being eaten by fake Zagan. Then, she uses it to destroy fake Zagan's body in the pit. She is happy and relieved to be of great help to Alibaba's group and to activate her Household Vessel for the first time. In the process, Morgiana uses up too much Magoi that puts too much strain on her body. She loses consciousness along with some blood loss.
During Dunya's attacks on Aladdin and Alibaba, Alibaba urges Hakuryuu to take Morgiana to safety. After Aladdin defeats Dunya with his Solomon of Wisdom and Hakuryuu obtains Zagan as his Djinn, Morgiana's group exit the dungeon. The group gets attack by Al Sarmen. Morgiana wakes up, thinking she can assist Alibaba to defeat the intruders. However, Zurmudd brutally beats Morgiana. Before Zurmudd could kill Morgiana, Masrur, Yamuraiha, and Sharrkan steps in the battle to save their students. Though Masrur's face is calm and composed, he is enraged at Zurmudd for almost killing Morgiana. Masrur kills Zurmudd with his Household Vessel, and as he is unable to move due to Magoi depletion, he holds Morgiana close while Sharrkan and Yamuraiha finishes off the intruders.
Being part of the Fanalis tribe, she is gifted with immense superhuman strength, heightened senses (hearing, smell, and vision), and agility. As demonstrated in her trip to the Dark Continent, she can scream as a form echolocation.
Her Household Vessel is Amol Selseira, and it's activated after Amon gives a birth a familiar that inhabits Morgiana's ankle cuffs. Like Alibaba's Djinn Equip's magic, her magic's element is fire. Her chains are able to extend allowing to climb and enhance her leaping mobility.
