A refugee from Quincy following Preston Garvey's lead, Marcy has steadily seen everything in her life go to pieces. When Gunners attacked Quincy, she fled the town with her husband, son, and little more than the shirts on their backs. Taking refuge in Lexington, the group was eventually forced out by a combination of feral ghouls and raiders encroaching on the town. With their numbers steadily dwindling down to almost nothing losing over three fourths of their number in a month, including her son, Marcy is understandably angry.
Her anger manifests as a mixture of various emotions, including furious, unrelenting hatred towards raiders, paranoia and excessive caution (in fact, she's reluctant to settle in any permanent area, due to fear of it being overrun again), and irritation. It takes a great deal to improve her spirits, but even then, the string of bad fortune and losing her only child has left her permanently scarred. She won't make new friends easily.

- Preston: "Just folks lookin' for a new home. A fresh start. I've been with 'em since Quincy. Lexington looked good for a while, but the Ghouls drove us outta there. A month ago, there were 20 of us. Yesterday there were 8. Now, we're 5. It's just me, the Longs - Marcy and Jun - that's old Mama Murphy on the couch. And this here's Sturges."
