They have no memory that they had a fourth sister. Marco was trained by the king of Solar in the style of the katana at age of 15. At 18 of Marco become the king of solar whos king has died later marco went too a manji clan. The leader of the clan was Yoshimitsu who Marco asked to train him, Yoshimistu accapted him and trained him. At age of 25 Marco met a young women named Daisy who Marco fell in love in. The both married and live in Solar. at the age of 40 Marco was happy that his wife gave birth to Marc and Dina. 3 years later Marco heard that his brother was at war with the wizard Marco want to help him but first at to take of somebody who treated his family, Darko
Marco and Darko was standing in front of each other. They both draw their swords and began to run to each other. both swinged their swords and were behind each other. Blood dripped from their swords and they both closed their eyes.
Darko fell down to his knees, Marco turned around and walked towards him. Marco put his sword on Darko's neck and looked at him.
"Do it" Darko said as he bented his head. Marco lifted his sword and swinged his sword, cutted of Darko's head. Marco sheathed his sword and then went home. At the Solar castle Marco satt on his throne with his wife who satt on an smaller throne. A guard came in told Marco that John had defeated the Wizard.
"Then it is over" Marco said.
Marco is considered natural by many due to his action and talking. He is an expect of war and show no mercy to opponets that insults him or his family. He values all life, but will not hesitate to kill when protecting the innocent or his loved ones. In soul calibur III he was active, brave and cocky. In Soulcalibur IV he is still active, brave and cocky but has become little calmer. Overall he is a natural aligned character.
Marco's fighting style is the same as Yoshimitsu's. See his page for more information
Manji Art: Life and Death. Draws both swords while entering the Indian Stance, and spins towards his opponent. If the low attack hits, he rises from the ground while he is still in the Indian Stance and slams the butt of both of his swords together, creating a blinding light in front of him while an aura forms behind him that forces his opponent to cover their eyes and fall back first into the ground.
Manji art: Execution. Marco slashes his opponent's abdomen, knocking them to the floor, spins around them, pauses, and finally slices them down in a traditional samurai execution. Autumn leaves fall down as he wipes his blade with his sleeve. Ultimately, one out of 7 different kanji appears, all of them in a different color theme and sometimes with different sound effects (one version features the same effect as in Tira's Critical Finish, but no kanji at all). A Japanese Shakuhachi can be heard throughout the Critical Finish

After Marco defeated Darko Marco forged again to have a wider blade and a skull on the hilt.
A Wakizashi forged by Marco himself. it was forged by Marco after his training with Yoshimitsu.
Jyurakudai Villa (SC3)
The blossoms of the cherry tree already fall like snow. What more can the wind ask of them?
--Ohshikouchi no Mitsune
This poem, recited in lament of the sight of fleeting cherry blossoms as they wilt away, comes from a bygone age of flowery aristocratic culture, when the capital city of Kyoto was called "Heiankyo", meaning "capital of peace".
Times has since passed, and the world is now one of warriors. The land is ruled by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The dazzling Azuchi Momoyama era is in full bloom.
Hideyoshi built his great citadel upon the remains of the imperial palace. This villa, too, with its fusion of the extravagant style of the time with the traditional beauty of the cherry blossom, presents an imposing grandeur which invites spectators into a dream-like world.
This mansion stands as a symbol of Toyotomi's power, yet it will face destruction within a mere ten years. The cherry trees, perhaps foreseeing its fate, perhaps not, continue to silently shed their petals into the wind...
This stage serves as Marco's backyard of his kingdom
Jyurakudai Villa - Virgin Snow (SC4)
Same stage except the stage is covered with snow
Fu-Ma No Sato: Mechanical Spider (SC5)
This stage is set in an exquisitely decorated Japanese temple, possibly belonging to the Fu-Ma clan, which leaves a single ring-out opportunity at one side of the room. Also, there is a gigantic mechanical spider in the background. As the battle progresses, the floor slowly slides towards the golden statue and gradually reduces the ring's size. This stage serves as a meditation room in the Solar kingdom.
