Martin was born to a small, but influential, merchant family that regulated the harbor trade in the capital city. Unfortunately for them, Leofric used the harbor to traffic the supplies necessary for his demon summoning. Martin’s father, Mathias, approached his own brother, Henric about the situation. However, Henric betrayed the family to Leofric in return for the business.
Young Martin was captured instead of slain, and taken by the twisted court wizard, who had need of him for his rituals—torturing the poor child to summon demons and increase his own dark power.
Eventually Martin escaped, and plotted his revenge. He has returned under the guise of a physician, using the Duke to get close to Leofric. Soon, wrongs shall be put right.
