Amy Marsh
....... Mr. Wang. It's Amy. It's been a while. I saw the news ... I was really coming to this country... I was really nervous about doing this, but I decided to send you a message...

Amy Marsh was a diplomat working for the American embassy in Zheng Fa who later worked for the Happy Family Home orphanage. She was the birth mother of John Marsh.

Presidential relations[]

Amy met Zheng Fa's President Di-Jun Wang as part of her job. In their first meeting, the president gave her a bouquet of lion lilies. This ultimately resulted in a relationship that led to her becoming pregnant with their child. After that, she left her job and returned to the United States. She had secured a new job at the Happy Family Home by the time she gave birth to her son, whom she named John.

The meeting that never was[]

Main article: SS-5 Incident

Amy sent a message to Wang telling him about their son's birth. She told him to meet her at the Happy Family Home on February 9, 2007. This message was stored in a Moozilla toy that doubled as an audio recording device. The president made it to the appointed place, but Amy had noticed someone stalking her and decided to cancel their meeting.

One of President Wang's body doubles had learned about Amy and the meeting and used this opportunity to have the president assassinated so that he could take his place. However, a photographer named Jack Cameron witnessed the body being taken away and sent a phone message to his girlfriend about it, mistaking it for a kidnapping. The body double killed Cameron and decided to stage a kidnapping to fit with the message. The presidential imposter stayed away from Amy, knowing that the existence of her son was a threat to the cover-up that he had engineered.

The secret revealed[]

Amy died seven years later, and her cousin Verity Gavèlle adopted John. The secret relationship with Di-Jun Wang, and thus the fact that he had been replaced by a double, remained hidden for five years after that until the body double was killed in April 2019. This helped to set off a chain of events leading to Miles Edgeworth discovering the truth behind the "kidnapping." John then contemplated murdering Sirhan Dogen, the man who murdered his father 12 years ago, but understanding that this would only cause further pain to his friends and adoptive mother, relented. Later, John bought three lion lilies, one for his adoptive mother and two in his birth parents' memory.


Amy Marsh's love of children led her to her job at Happy Family Home. She had such a close relationship with her cousin Verity Gavèlle that the pair viewed each other almost as sisters.
