Mabian (Ma/ra and Fa/bian) is the romantic pairing of Mara Jaffray and Fabian Rutter. Fabian is a friend of Mara's, but they don't really talk much throughout the show. They decide to mutually be nice to Nina when she first arrives despite everyone else refusing to welcome her. They are usually two of the nicest people in the House. In Season 2, Fabian is grateful that Mara decided to help him experiment with the potions, and he was even happier she didn't ask any questions about it. It is revealed that Mara is somewhat smarter than Fabian because she knew how to analyze the potion, and he didn't. They should get nothing but closer together, having very similar personalities. In Season 1, where Mara becomes a "bad girl" , Fabian stares at her, He is the most surprised, mouthing "Oh my gosh!". In Season 2, Fabian stands up for Mara when Mr. Sweet wants to expel her, saying "You can't expel Mara, she's done more for this school then all of us put together," which means he does think of her as a good friend, even though they do not talk that often. Fabian was happy when Mara didn't get expelled. In Season 3 Nina doesn't come back and Jerome cheats on Mara meaning they're both single. In Season 3, the episode, House of Ammut / House of Heroes, Mara and Fabian get closer. They kissed in The Touchstone of Ra when they agreed to share Mara's Valedictorian medal - she knew how much being Valedictorian would have meant to Fabian so she shared it with him. They get interrupted by KT and then went to dance. This means they are an official couple. Unfortunately, Mara will not be coming back in Season 4 (not yet announced) meaning the couple will not be able to carry on their relationship visibly if the show does continue and Fabian stays, which might not be likely as he has graduated now. Brad Kavanagh has stated he liked working Fabina scenes more than Mabian scenes
