"What? Oh, I already knew that... I know that half of the blood within me is that of a demi-human... And I know that it'll be easier for me if I can accept that fact... What are you, my school counselor or something? Like, tell me something I don't know..."
— Marcy

Marcy (マルチェラ Maruchera?) is the youngest of the four Devas in Chrono Cross and is a fiery girl who gets her way while maintaining strong likes and dislikes for others. She is the daughter of Fargo and Zelbess, making her Nikki's younger sister.

Profile[]

Appearance[]

Marcy has blue eyes and blonde hair that is worn in a style called "ox horns", typically found throughout Chinese children's style with pink ribbons and gold closures. She wears a breastplate, heavy boots, a buckler, and gauntlets on top of a frilly pink tutu with a large ribbon on the back, and a pink sweater with ruched shoulders.

It is indicated by Nikki, Fargo, and Irenes from Home World that Marcy's appearance resembles that of her mother Zelbess.

Personality[]

When meeting with Marcy for the first time, she can be seen as a serious but elegant child yet also bratty through her fiery temper and attitude. As one of the four Devas, Marcy can handle herself in battles and is able to ensnare her opponents using strings as weapons, her ferociousness in battles were thought to be inherited from her father Fargo. Losing to Serge in combat enrages her.

Of her family, she does not recognize her older brother Nikki (should the player choose him to infiltrate Viper Manor) upon meeting him and responds in a tantrum, not listening to him despite their relation, never recognizing him as her elder sibling. This changes when Marcy apologizes to Serge(in Lynx's body) for her previous actions, learns about her real family and recognizes her father Fargo, brother Nikki after she, Karsh, General Viper, and her father join Serge and his party. During her travels in Home World, she can't even recognized the dimensional counterparts of both her father and older brother except for her mermaid aunt Irenes who was surprised to hear from her comments that she was indeed resembling her mother Zelbess which is actually Irene's sister.

Like Karsh, her dimensional counterpart was also dead and frozen like the rest of the Dragoons in Home World during their travels in the Dead Sea.

Storyline[]

Marcy was born in tragedy: she was the last child of Zelbess and Fargo, making her part Demi-human. Soon after, the falling out between Viper and Fargo occurred, and Fargo's family was forced to flee for their lives. When Zelbess died, Luccia was able to save Marcy, who she began to raise from a distance. Marcy was free to do what she pleased and developed a picky attitude while working on her fighting skills as she grew up. When Luccia moved to Viper Manor in 1017 A.D., Marcy moved with her, and was introduced to the Acacia Dragoons formally. She became reputable for her fighting skills, and was soon promoted to the position of Deva alongside Karsh, Zoah, and Dario where the details of her lineage were kept secret. In 1020 A.D. she encountered Serge in the library of Viper Manor eagerly jumped at the chance to inflict pain upon the intruders. However, she was beaten and forced to retreat giving her a hatred for Serge.

In the event that Nikki is in Serge's party, she refuses to acknowledge him as her big brother after Nikki recognizes her due to her resemblance to their mother Zelbess and subsequently throws a tantrum before their fight. She unleashed her rage upon him again upon finding him at Mount Pyre but was beaten once more.

After the Devas discovered the injured Viper at the hands of Lynx, and the shards of the Dragon Tear, Marcy collected the pieces and returned to Termina. She eventually joined Serge's party once all the Acacia Dragoons met at the S.S. Invincible. While travelling with him, she learned that Nikki is her brother and Fargo, her father. This allowed her to reconcile with her half Demi-human heritage except for their dimensional counterparts in Home World where she didn't recognize them upon her travels. She also meets her mermaid aunt Irenes and was surprised about her comments about her resembling her mother Zelbess which is in fact, Irenes's sister.

After defeating the Time Devourer, Marcy says goodbye to Serge, wishing to grow up just like him.

Name Etymology[]

The name Marcy traces back to Mars, the Roman god of war. Though Mars was the name of the god, it also came to mean "warlike" or "of war," related to the Latin stem 'mart-' (hence the English word 'martial'). This fits because she is a renowned fighter, like the war-like deity.
