History

Hey there, fella. How about a contest?

—  Marco
Easy money... if I reload.

Marco was a young orphan who earned his living off of bets on a shell game. He had traveled the world on the back of his own exemplary skills and first met McDohl in Rockland, prior to his taking leadership of the Toran Liberation Army.

Following this, Marco was not encountered by the hero again until they met once more in Warriors' Village, in the region of Lorimar. There, Marco found himself inspired to join after the young leader won 5,000 potch off of his game. During the war, Marco ran his cup game for the amusement of the soldiers and served as an archer in major field battles.

After the Gate Rune War, it is said that he continued to lead his own vigorous life.

Trivia

  • In the Sega Saturn release of Suikoden, Marco's shell game is replaced by a "heads or tails" game in which Marco tosses three coins and you guess what side each coin will land on. Potch is awarded if you get two or more coins correct.
  • Playing with Marco in Rockland is known to be an easy way to get a lot of money early int he game: Save the game, play with him and remember the pattern. After loading the game, his pattern doesn't change, allowing the player to easily win a couple of rounds.
