Marella and Keefe, or Keefella, is the romantic/friendship pairing of Keefe Sencen and Marella Redek. While neither has yet to show romantic interest in the other, it can be noted that Marella has taken interest in similar people.

Marella comes from the Redek family and lives at Fluttermont, and Keefe is a Sencen, and is forced to live at the Shores of Sholace through a deal. His father pressures him, and that resulted in bad childhood memories.

  • In Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities, Marella and Keefe loved talking about Sophie's alchemy failures.
  • In Neverseen Marella asked, "'What's wrong with Keefe?'"
  • In Nightfall Marella asks, why did they have a part of Keefe's cape covered in blood, maybe she was worried he was hurt. (chapter 44)
  • Nightfall: when Sophie doesn't answer her question, Marella says, "...And just so you know, we're looping back to the why-do-you-have-Keefe's-blood conversation..." (chapter 44)
  • In Book 8: Legacy, Keefe brings Marella with him to the battle of Loamnore.
  • In Legacy Marella says about Linh and Keefe, "I swear, if she and Keefe ever get together, I'd feel super sorry for their kid." Page 387 this might be because she might have a crush on Keefe and didn't want Linh to compete with
