Mary Argent, known as Mary Agent (マリー・エージェント Marii Eejento?) in Japan, is a playable character in Tales of Destiny. In the original PlayStation version of the game, Mary joins the party as a required member during early parts of the game, but after a specific point in the story, Mary's services as a party member are either removed or become fully optional, based on a divergent plot element in the game which depends on the player's actions. In the PlayStation 2 remake of Tales of Destiny, Mary remains with the party as a permanent member.

Suffering from amnesia, 24-year-old Mary is not aware of her last name due to an unknown event in her past. She is usually quiet and does not show much emotion, but she can fly into a wild frenzy during battle. Her partner, Rutee Katrea, uses Mary for her own financial gain.
Appearance and Personality
Mary is a dark-skinned woman with great strength and a fiercely imposing stature. She has magenta-colored hair, bound into a long and bushy ponytail and held in place with a white headband. Her attire consists of a maroon armor top with protective shoulder pads and a green, sarong-style piece underneath that extends downward, while her legs are primarily exposed.
Contrary to her bold, amazon-like exterior, Mary is actually rather submissive and often clueless about her surroundings. Due to her memory loss, Mary has no goals or ambitions, and she eagerly follows the actions and decisions made by Rutee without objection. Her attention tends to drift at times, however, causing her to focus on things that are entirely irrelevant to a given situation just because they are shiny or cute. She will chase after these things, which causes frustration on Rutee's part when Mary wanders off instead of focusing on her task. However, Mary is fiercely loyal to her partner, and she will protect Rutee from any danger at the risk of her own life. It is during battle that Mary's inner beast expresses itself, manifested through her berserk rage directed toward her opponents, and she will aggressively combat her enemies without remorse. Upon the conclusion of any battle, Mary reverts to her subdued nature, perplexing others with her drastic shift in personality.
Mary has no Swordian, but she is a strong physical attacker who relies on axes in the PlayStation 2 remake of the game, although the original release allows her to use other powerful weapons such as swords and spears. Her fighting style focuses largely on a hybrid of slash- and strike-based attacks, in which she bashes the enemy with destructive force while simultaneously using her weapon to cleave the enemy.
Tales of Destiny 2
In Tales of Destiny 2, Mary can be found in Heidelberg, washing dishes in the inn's kitchen. When spoken to, she mentions how Kyle Dunamis bears a strong resemblance to someone she once knew, referring to Stahn Aileron. A portrait in the city's museum reveals Mary's true name to be Mary Vincent and states that she has since retired from fighting in order to lead a quiet life.
