Why does this have to be my fate?
—Mavelle Froesson

Mavelle Froesson is one of the main characters of the first Star Ocean, as well as its remake, Star Ocean: First Departure.


Mavelle at first seems distant, solemn, and bent only on revenge, but she eventually manages to have a normal communication with others. When in Ioshua's presence, she seems rather uncomfortable as she is afraid to tell him that she is not who she seems....


Star Ocean: Fantastic Space Odyssey/First Departure

Mavelle is a beautiful and mysterious woman whose path crossed with Millie and Ronyx when they arrived to 46 SD Roak. She first meets the party when they arrive to the town of Ionis, and tells them of her story: She had been attacked and captured by the Crimson Shield, who killed her family and sold her to an assassin guild. After this, the player can opt to recruit her or not.

In case Mavelle and Ioshua are recruited, the player will see a major scene at the Old Race Ruins. Here the player will find out that Mavelle is actually Erys Jerand, Ioshua's sister, who had exchanged her body for the body of a Muah female, in order to seek revenge from the Crimson Shield. She will then join her original, frozen body and shatter it along the icicle she resides in, killing herself. However, in First Departure, if you have Ashlay in the party in addition to Ioshua and Mavelle, Mavelle becomes Erys once again.


Mavelle can be recruited after reuniting with Ronyx in Ionis, if one of the following conditions is met:

  • Ioshua is in the party (in this case, she will join automatically);
  • Ashlay is in the party (you can ask her to join);
  • No one has been recruit yet (pick the first option "Wait a minute" during a conversation for her to join).

If you recruit Mavelle, and she is your 7th character, you cannot get:

  1. Phia, late-game.
  2. T'nique.

NOTE: Mavelle is absolutely necessary to get Erys.

  • Mavelle automatically joins the party if you have recruited Ioshua. If you recruited Ashlay (or didn't recruit anyone until reaching Ionis), you can choose to let her join or not. If you didn't have Ioshua or Ashlay, but has someone else in the party, she will not join.
  • Mavelle is one of the two characters in the game capable of acquiring all talents (the other being Millie).
  • In a private action in Silvalant with Erys, it is hinted that Mavelle is more than just a vessel, rather having both her own mind and Erys's while Erys's soul inhabited her body. It is even hinted that Mavelle had a real name, even though the player never learns what it is.
  • Mavelle is the only protagonist, unable to use symbology, to be able to learn the Blessing of Mana talent, which also may allude to the fact that she is really Erys.
