Martin is a merchant living in Kirkwall.

Background Edit

Martin is a former raider and friend of Isabela. However, when the new raider leader took over, he instituted some changes that didn't sit well with Martin. Martin was used to petty thievery, but now raiding involved kidnapping and other serious crimes. Martin tried to get out, but the leader slit his throat and threw him overboard. He washed up on shore and started a new life as a merchant.
