Several popular medieval names just happened, arbitrarily, to end in the letters ‘b-e-l’ . They were Isabel, Amabel, and Sibella (Sibyl). Also coincidentally, “belle” happened to be the French word for “beautiful.”
Thereafter, “bel,” “belle,” or “bella” became a popular ending for girls names, and many names were coined based on this.
Some “bel” names include:
Isabel, Isabelle, Isabella
Arabella (a form of Amabel)
Mabel (a form of Amabel)
Annabelle (originally a form of Amabel, but later used as Anna plus Belle)
Barabel (Barbara plus Belle)
Claribel (“Clara plus Belle)
Mariabella (Maria plus Bella)
Maribel (Maria plus Isabel, or Belle)
Bonniebelle (“lively” plus Belle)
Christabel (“Christian” plus Belle)
Dowsabel (“sweet” plus Belle)
Dulcibel (“sweet” plus Belle)
Mirabelle (“admired” plus Belle)
Rosabel (“rose” plus Belle)

I guess she's either an orphan or a run-away and took into care by Mose. I'm wondering why she has/uses a family name. In the Suikoden world, this only (or mostly) applies for people from prominent families. There should be some backstory to this very young and giant lady who's bearing a powerful unique rune. Does anybody have more background information or other theories?
I thought she was in her 20's. So she was still a kid.

After the events of S1, Karen became her student, so a 14-year-old trained another 14-year-old (Karen is born in 444 too). At least Karen was already 16 when she made the men in Kuskus horny.
