Welcome to the fanlisting for Marshall Eriksen is a fictional character on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, portrayed by Jason Segel. Series co-creator Craig Thomas explained that he based Marshall and Lily on himself and his wife Rebecca.

The series revolves around the adventures of the five main characters:Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) and his best friends Marshall, his wife Lily Aldrin (Alyson Hannigan) ,Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders). Marshall met Ted and Lily during their freshman year at Wesleyan University in 1996, and they moved into an apartment in New York City together after graduation. In the show's pilot episode, he proposes to Lily, inspiring Ted to start looking for the love of his life.

Marshall was born and raised in St. Cloud, Minnesota, the youngest of three brothers. His last name, and the fact that he is from Minnesota suggests that he might be a Norwegian American. He is extremely close to his family, particularly his father, Marvin (Bill Fagerbakke). When Marvin dies Marshall is devastated, and takes a long time to recover. He is also close to his mother, Judy (Suzie Plakson), and is oblivious to the fact that she and Lily despise each other. As a teenager, he got into brutal fighting matches with his brothers.

In the first two seasons, Marshall is a law student who dreams of working for the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC). Once he passes the bar, however, money concerns force him to take a job at Goliath National Bank, a corrupt multinational corporation. He quits his job in the seventh season and finally achieves his dream of working for the NRDC. In the last episode of the eighth season, he is offered a judgeship, and accepts without telling Lily; staying in New York conflicts with her dream job in Italy. He gives the position up in the ninth season, however, so he can go to Rome with Lily and their children. The series finale, "Last Forever", reveals that he works for another corporate firm after returning to New York, until he is appointed to a judgeship. In the year 2020, he is elected to the New York State Supreme Court.

Marshall is fascinated by the paranormal, and has absolute faith that mythical creatures such as Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster are real. He has even discovered a paranormal event himself: a bizarre creature he names "the cockamouse"
