She could keep Joel, and occasionally others, in line with seemingly little more than a glance, a gesture, or a single short sentence. Marilyn was the only regular female Native American character, and although the stoic, braided character she inherited was a little stereotypical, Elaine Miles who got the role almost accidentally imbued Marilyn with such a force of will and personality that gradually the character grew into one that was almost universally loved by fans.Northern Exposure - Fleischman/O'Connell Kiss Supercut
Given more free rein with the character after the early seasons, we got to see more of Marilyn; she talked a little more, although never more than needed, and she got to lose those braids. We learn that she is the best dancer in town, and can even bring tough guy Holling to heel.
The episodes that focused on Marilyn—her romance with the Flying Man, her trip to Seattle with Joel in pursuit—all have something in common with the character: We discussed Chris Stevens briefly in our introduction to Northern Exposure.

Maurice was an early landowner in Cicely and dreams of making Cicely the jewel of the Alaskan Riviera.
He is so terrible at being mean that you feel sorry for him mostly, and his outward abrasiveness seems to mask a deep loneliness and love for both the town and the townsfolk. For me, some of the best moments in Northern Exposure are when the storyline puts Maurice out of his comfort zone and forces him to confront his prejudices and pomposity.
Of all the characters, Maurice is the one who I never tire of watching over the course of the seasons, and possibly the character who—whilst maybe not growing too much—reveals more of himself slowly, becoming more complex and less of a caricature than when he is first shown. Ed Chigliak is the first Cicelian Joel meets upon his arrival. Orphaned at birth, he has been raised by the local Tlingit people and identifies as part of the Bear Clan.
Thus, Ed reveals his true character—he is a romantic at heart.
