In Shadow Dragon: Marth was born as the Prince of Altea and a descendant of the hero Anri. When Marth was 14, the Kingdom of Dolhr, lead by the Earth Dragon Medeus, begins to invade the other kingdoms in Archanea. Marth's father, King Cornillius, is betrayed and killed, and Marth's sister, Elice, is taken hostage. For his own safety, Marth goes into exile on the island kingdom of Talys. After pirates attack the island, Marth decides it is time to reclaim his homeland. He forms a small army and begins a war to reclaim his homeland, rescue his sister, and liberate the nations conquered by Dolhr.

In Mystery of the Emblem: Three years have passed since the events of Shadow Dragon. Marth was engaged to the Princess of Talys, Caeda. However, a few days before they can get married, Marth receives orders from the Emperor of Archanea to stop the rebellion in Grust. The rebellion, while real, was just an excuse to get Marth away from Altea so that Hardin could easily conquer it. Caeda manages to escape but Marth's sister, Elice, is taking hostage once again. Hardin then declares Marth a traitor. Despite this, Marth leads his small army to reclaim his homeland and defeat Hardin, and later, the resurrected Medeus.
