Saint Marie (세인트 마리, Seinteu Mari) is a manhwa series created by Yang Yuh-jin. It is about a fictional private school, Saint Marie, that becomes a battleground between good and evil.

Story[edit]

Dah-In Hyun, a normal everyday schoolgirl, discovers that she and the other students at Saint Marie have become pawns in a proverbial chess game. When her best friend dies trying to defend herself, Dah-In finds herself trapped in a battle where no one is who they seem, and the line between black and white is blurred.

Characters[edit]

Dah-In "Illumina" Hyun
A normal, spunky teenager who just happens to be stuck in between a battle between sides. Dah-In's roommate, Na-Na, is a pawn in a battle between sides, and unintentionally involves Dah-In. Undecided side.
Na-Na
Dah-In's roommate and best friend. She has the power to project pictures onto items, which she passes onto Dah-In upon her death. White pawn.
Yoon-Ha
Dah-in's "crush" and boyfriend—for a while. Carefree, rebellious, and downright foxy, he enjoys toying with Dah-In's emotions. Unknown side.
Seung-Hae "Elphege" Kim
He's a freshman in high school, "Matthew" Class. Pessimistic and of noble descent (French), he prefers classy clothes. When it comes to people, he's very cautious and cold-hearted. A perfectionist. Being stubborn and insensitive, some people call him "Whiney". His hobbies are finding other people's weaknesses and screaming. A talent of his is playing the violin. (Seung-Hae even played a violin solo during a choir performance.) His specialty is teleporting, being the fastest among the white chess pieces, and his after school activity is the English club. White Knight.
Suh-Rin "Fabian" Kim
Freshman in middle school, "Matthew" Class. He's the younger brother of Seung-Hae, and he's two years younger than most middle school students, being a child prodigy. This makes him more immature than most other students at Saint Marie. For some reason, he's in love with Shi-Young. Liking old-fashioned clothes, he almost always has a hat to compliment his outfit. He extremely dislikes glamorous girls (like Hyun-Jin). His hobby is assembling plastic models and his talent is fixing electronics. He has great fighting skills, and his after school club is the Geology club. White chess piece.

Reception[edit]

Critical reception for Saint Marie was positive, with Mania.com calling the book "confusing" and an "intriguing piece of work".[1] Anime News Network wrote that the first volume was "A diamond in the rough; Saint Marie is as beautiful to look at as it is intriguing to read."[2]
