Michelle Marlon, also known as Sleep Princess, was the daughter of Gallerian Marlon and Mira Yarera. After going on a trip with her mother on the Titanis, a giant octopus attacked the ship and Michelle drowned in the ensuing sinking. Following her death, her father began collecting the vessels of sin. At the world's end, she forged a contract with Eve Moonlit and began aiding Gallerian in restoring the world.
Michelle was born the daughter of Gallerian Marlon and Mira Yarera in EC 962. The following year, her parents were forced to marry due to the circumstances of her birth. Living in the family mansion in Levianta, Michelle was mostly raised by her parents' servants Bruno Zero, Rennert, Katerina and Larisa. In EC 964, the young Michelle was put to bed by Bruno before waking up to the sound of her parents' arguing.
As she grew up, Michelle often offered to help the servants with the household chores. Sometime during her childhood, she read "The Daughter of Evil" by Yukina Freezis, enjoying the book. Later on, she saw a picture of her grandmother Elluka Clockworker. At some point, Michelle posed with her parents for a photograph, smiling. The young woman later noticed her parents' loveless relationship and became worried over it, although hiding her concern in public for fear of damaging Gallerian's reputation.

- ―Gallerian Marlon[src]
Meeting with her father in the mansion's living room regarding the trip, Michelle heard her father refuse due to having just become head judge and needing to work. Asked about the destination, Michelle explained she originally wanted to go to Maistia before deciding to go to Marlon to visit her grandfather, promising to call Gallerian every day. Whilst joking with her father about meeting strange men, Michelle heard Larisa announce that Ma had come to visit them and watched the Jakokuese woman step in and introduce herself.
Michelle then noted her resemblance to her grandmother, told by the woman that she had changed her face out of respect for Elluka. After hearing Ma mention that she had obtained youth and beauty with help of a place called Lunaca Labora, Michelle expressed a wish to go there herself to become beautiful. Ma then told her she didn't need to do so because she was already beautiful, and had turned out exactly how Ma though she would.Afterwards, Ma approached Michelle and stated she wanted to talk to her. Telling the woman about her travel plans, Michelle promised they would speak once she returned. The young woman then listened in as Ma asked Gallerian to sponsor a movie adaption of "The Daughter of Evil"; becoming excited at the mention of a movie, Michelle was offered by Ma to be cast as Michaela.
Three weeks later, Michelle boarded the SS Titanis with her mother. Sailing to Marlon, the girl stayed there for a time. Later on during the ship's return trip to Levianta, a giant octopus attacked the Titanis; as a result of the ship's destruction, Michelle drowned.
World's EndEditFollowing the destruction of the Third Period in EC 999, Michelle encountered Eve and forged a contract with her, obtaining her power. Assuming the appearance of Margarita Blankenheim, "Sleep Princess" traveled to Toragay. Channeling Eve's memories and personality, Michelle, wishing to help the souls uncomfortable with their sleeplessness, refined a Eighth Gift formula that could put souls to sleep.
At the behest of the Tasan Party, she then unleashed her new poison into the air, spreading it across the Evillious region as it put the souls of the Hellish Yard into a deep slumber. Sometime after, Michelle noticed a blond boy resembling Hänsel approach with a Netsuma and coldly asked if he had come to kill her again.
When the boy asked the reason for her actions, she stated that he and his companions were terrible children and therefore unnecessary. As the boy demanded she answer his question, Michelle continued that her Gift was a sweet child, obediently listening to whatever she told it to do. Afterward, she commanded her "adorable" Gift to freely play even more, spreading around her in an even thicker fog. As the boy attempted to approach her while avoiding the poison, she manipulated the Eighth Gift toward him, forcing him to relent and maintain his distance.
Shortly after, Michelle heard a voice calling out from above and saw Lemy Abelard descending from the sky. Despite her attempts to stop him, Michelle and her poison were sealed away in the Clockworker's Doll, Lemy telling her to be grateful she wasn't being thrown in the furnace again. Sometime after, Michelle escaped her vessel.
Later on, Michelle reunited with Gallerian as well as encountered Gammon Octo. Wanting to restore the world to what it once was even at the cost of disappearing along with the other contractors, she began working with them. In the Hellish Yard, Michelle floated up out of the ground and used Eve's hypnotism to puppeteer Prim Marlon, restraining the attacking Kayo Sudou. Told by Gallerian to use Gift, Michelle attempted to but found her heart going to Eve, pained and dispelling the toxin. At Gallerian's command, Michelle broke the barrier and disappeared with him, traveling to the rebuilt Evil's Theater.
As Riliane Lucifen d'Autriche, Kayo and Sateriasis Venomania entered, Michelle was unfazed by Riliane's threats of sealing her in the Doll, explaining her reasons for her actions. She then beckoned them further down the hall, offering an explanation of the truth. Entering the interior room of the director's office, Michelle played with the twins Adam and Eve. When Ma suddenly resurfaced from within Riliane, Michelle was absorbed along with the rest of the contractors. Following Ma's defeat, Michelle separated from the fusion.
- "I’m home, Michelle. Were you lonely while Papa was gone?"

Gallerian then forged a contract with Adam Moonlit and began hearing a voice from the doll, believing the lie. Soon after, the judge began making underhanded court dealings in order to collect the vessels of sin.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Raised with deep affection by her father, Michelle was a kind and cheerful young woman. Loving both her parents, she wished for them to be together as a family. Because of this, Michelle was concerned about her parents' clearly loveless marriage, although was careful not to show her feelings for fear of affecting their reputation. The young woman also made efforts to be helpful to her family's servants, offering to assist them with housework. Possessing an upbeat attitude, Michelle often acted visibly excited at the mention of one of her interests, some of which were movies and books by Yukina Freezis. Wanting to be beautiful, Michelle usually wore an archaic design as her preferred dress.
Following her contract with Eve, Michelle became confused with her own identity, unsure of who she even was and channeling Eve's identity instead of her own. Despite her apparent cheerfulness, Michelle's personality also made her the most compatible contractor for Eve, the Demon of Sloth.

Michelle was an exceptional student and excelled in her studies, becoming accepted to Levin University at the age of sixteen.

As a result of her contract, Michelle wielded Eve's power as her own, including her hypnosis and control over Gift. However, this came at the cost of confusion over her own identity, as well as her sometimes becoming incapacitated when using her powers due to her heart going to Eve. She was additionally able to break the boundary between the Hellish Yard and the Third Period, as well as teleport in a flash of light.
