Biography

Summer of 1958

June

They are in a relationship, and on a date, Peter insults Beverly Marsh, and Marcia joins in the insult and suggests that Beverly make out with Richie.

Marcia is led off, protected, by Peter into the town movie theater, and Beverly insults her behind her back.

July

After the movie theater incident, Marcia tells Peter to get revenge on the Losers Club for her. Peter, a member of the Bowers Gang, takes part in Henry Bowers's chase of Mike Hanlon, which winds up in the resulting rock fight between the Bowers Gang and Losers Club, and Peter is the first on Henry's side to forfeit.

Fate

Marcia Fadden is presumed deceased by the end of It, as it is mentioned that Pennywise killed all of Henry's friends.

Personality

Marcia Fadden was an egomaniac; she acted smug and arrogant whenever she was with her lover, Peter. Provocative, lustful, and spoiled, she did not hesitate to use a situation to her advantage, yet she was a coward at heart and cowered up to Peter for protection when Beverly "insulted" her.

Her whole relationship with Peter is described in the text as two horrible people needing each other.
