Dex and Marella, or Darella, is the romantic/friendship pairing of Dexter Dizznee and Marella Redek.

Dex doesn't really show any interest in Marella. Marella says that Dex is cute, but doesn't show much further interest in him. It would make a good pair because Dex doesn't want to register to the matchmakers and Marella is going to be a bad match anyway.
