|Anime||Cadet Training Camp|
Marco Bott (マルコ・ボット Maruko Botto?) is a supporting character of the series. He was a member of the 104th Cadet Corps, and graduated as one of the top 10 members. He was assigned to fight the Titans after the breach of Trost District.
Marco is an idealistic young man, valuing the good of the group above his own interests. The others respect him greatly, and consider him to be a natural leader suited to his dreams of joining the Military Police. He is shown to be an excellent judge of others, recognising Jean's potential as a leader and encouraging him to believe in himself. He is also shown to have a talent for preserving order among the others, whether resolving arguments or keeping them calm during battle.
Marco was an earnest and charismatic member of the 104th Squad, well-respected by the others for his leadership. He appeared to be very good friends with Jean, often holding him back or talking him down when he lost his temper. In fact, he recognises Jean's potential as a leader and actively encourages him to embrace it since as someone that is "weak", he is able to empathise with others and make sound decisions. Marco acts as one of the 104th squad leaders during the Battle of Trost, and leads the team sent in to act as bait.
He expressed a strong desire to join the Military Police, stating he considered it a great honour to serve the King. This puts him into stark contrast with others, who express the desire to join in order to gain access to the comforts and relative safety of the inner territories.
He was later found in half after the breach of Wall Rose. His 3D maneuvering equipment was later found taken by Annie.
Marco over heard Reiner and Berholt talking about their own titans and the hole they made in Trost.
Annie took his 3D maneuvering equipment and killed him and discarded half of his body so it would apper he was killed by a titan.
