Marsh is a male MudWing dragonet, and is one of Clay's six siblings, 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 didn't have to be nervous about his clawmate.
Marsh was shown to be nervous and jumpy, and was described by Umber to be able to fly really fast. He seemed to get along very well with Coconut. He does not like the war.
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 to be the bigwings of the prophecy dragonets.
Marsh and his sibs were seen when Sunny and Clay go to the MudWings in order to send a message to Burn. He admitted to feeling wary of the outcome of the MudWings' planned attack on the IceWings, which, thanks to the Great Ice Cliff, would have ended in genocide.
Marsh was a minor character, accompanying Clay and his siblings throughout the book, and attending Jade Mountain Academy as part of the Copper Winglet. Near the end of the book, when Sora was asked why she tried to kill Icicle, Marsh was 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 was mentioned 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 close 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."
- A marsh is a land form in which grass grows on soil that is typically very muddy, watery, and wet.
- In Moon Rising, he is clawmates with Coconut. Qibli found it fitting that the most nervous of dragons was paired with the most docile. According to Qibli, no one could be scared of Coconut.
- He is shown to have anxiety and possibly PTSD from watching his sister, Crane, die in front of him.
