Later, Lloyd, accompanied by Genis visits Marble. Lloyd notices that the Exsphere she has on her, forced by the Desians, was crudely made and could make her very sick. He doesn't know for sure what would happen if they took it off. After Colette left on her journey, Lloyd is seen on the Iselia's ranch video cam. Marble is turned into a monster by her Exsphere, loses her soul and is forced to travel with the Desians to destroy Iselia. Lloyd and Genis go back to Iselia hopeing to catch up with Colette's group and instead find the village in flames. The Desians, led by Forcystus of the 5 Desian Grand Cardinals, had attacked the village along with the monster. Forcycstus ordered the monster (Exbelua in the game) to kill Lloyd for attacking the guards that saw his face. After a long battle Lloyd mortally wounds the beast with help from Genis and his magic. When Forcyctus is about to kill Lloyd, Exbelua grabs him from behind and tells Genis that he was like a grandson to her and orders the boys to run. Marble in Exbelua form explodes on the back of Forcyctus, gravly injuring him. Lloyd and Genis are banished from Iselia and they start following Colette's group.
Later on in the city of Palmacosta, the group finds Marble's family and a general store owned by her. Chocolat (Marble's grand-daughter) hates Lloyd for killing Marble and willingly goes with the Desians to the Iselia Ranch. Lloyd rescues her for good near the end of the 1st disc.
