Marsh is a male MudWing dragonet and is one of six siblings of Clay, as well as the second last-hatched dragonet of Cattail He never seemed to have recovered from the death of his sister, Crane, who was killed in the battle between Blaze's and Burn's armies just a couple of days before Clay arrived, which had also been his troop's very first battle. Marsh appears to be nervous and anxious most of the time. He is currently a student at the Jade Mountain Academy, where he is in the Copper Winglet with his clawmate, Coconut. Qibli noted that the arrangement was probably made so that Marsh wasn't as nervous.
After escaping from the Sky Kingdom, Clay and the other dragonets of destiny made their way to the Mud Kingdom while being pursued by Burn and her soldiers. The group encountered him and were overjoyed to see him for the first time. They helped him make peace with himself, and, despite protests, let Clay depart.
Marsh appears in Clay's dream with his other siblings when Starflight dreamvisits Clay.
He and his sibs are seen when Sunny and Clay go to the MudWings to send a message to Burn. He admits to feeling wary on the outcome of the MudWings' planned attack on the IceWings.
Marsh was a minor character, accompanying Clay and his siblings throughout the book, and attending the Copper Winglet. Near the end of the book, when Sora is asked why she tried to kill Icicle, Marsh is shown in a flashback. Sora and Marsh are about to be killed by an IceWing and Crane pushes them out of the way.
When Umber abruptly left with Sora, they didn't have time to tell Marsh that they were leaving, so they left Clay that responsibility.
Marsh is shown sitting with Clay in the prey-center near Coconut. It is mentioned by Clay that they made the correct choice in making the two clawmates, as they quickly became best friends.
"I hope we survive the next one,"
"What were those IceWings doing here anyway?"
"Unless you think we should leave,"
"I'll do whatever you decide."
"I thought we were all going to die."
