- ""The game begins soon after Marche moves to St. Ivalice, the country town where his mother was born. The reason for the move was twofold: Marche's parent's divorce became final after many years of separation, and they had to leave the home where Marche grew up. In addition, Marche's little brother Doned found that his illness was getting worse, and the family figured a move to the countryside might be good for him. But when all of Ivalice changes, Marche's adventure begins. Will he be able to restore the world to the way it was before?""
- —Official profile
The game begins right after Marche and his brother, Doned, move to St. Ivalice with their mother after their parents' divorce settles. The natural environment of St. Ivalice was thought to be better for Doned's severe illness. Marche participates in a snowball fight on his first day of school and plays on the same team as Mewt Randell and Ritz Malheur, both of whom he quickly befriends and later invites back to his house to see Mewt's new book. When the world is transformed into Mewt's dream world, Marche is the only character that wants the world to return to normal. Because of this, Marche is forced to battle with his own friends, take away their (and his own) dream world, and make the others see that they cannot continue a world that is simply not real. During the game, Marche ends up telling Doned about how he would keep all his emotions caged in for his brother's sake, and how hard it was to never receive attention from either parent. These tasks prove to be the most difficult challenges that Marche struggles to overcome, even more so than the many battles he fights throughout Ivalice- especially because he himself is not entirely sure if what he is doing is best. Marche bears a striking resemblance to Ramza from Final Fantasy Tactics, and also shares many personality traits.
