After a LOT of one-night-stands, Alden convinced him that togetherness for more than one night coud be OK. A few years prior, Alex and Cat had tried to couple him off with... just about anyone or anything, including a golden retriever (don't ask).
Personality and traitsEdit
For one thing he's cursed with an awful stubbornness that often sets him on the warpath against Cat. He is very confident and direct, as well as independent. He isn't very sociable and is content with having Alex, Cat and a girl from an LGBT group as his only friends. He is not quite as picky with one-night-stands but it does take a lot of effort to convince him that said one night stand should be a repeat performance.
Abilities and skillsEdit
If it is related to food then it's often left to Martin to handle. It's not that he particularly enjoys cooking, but it's necessary knowledge when you live by yourself and id allergic to most fast foods. However he does find a certain secret-sort-of-obvious joy in being able to shine a bit by offering an exceptional breakfast to his love interest.
Again, because he lived by himself from a relatively young age he had to know how to handle his money. He is very self disciplined with money, even when he grows older and his economy grows.
(from Behind the Name)
MARTIN: From the Roman name Martinus, which was derived from Martis, the genitive case of the name of the Roman god MARS; possibly related to Latin mas "male" (genitive maris). In Roman mythology Mars was the god of war, often equated with the Greek god Ares.
Overall very fitting name, I say. Even if it sounds horrible and Alex must have bullied him something horrile about it.
- Martin can't eat fastfood. For some reason, it simply doesn't agree with his system. He has never really bothered to find out why, instead he just learned to cook his meals from scratch.
- Ensemble Darkhorse At first he was supposed to be a minor former rival of Caitlyn and Alex. Very soon that was modified so that he became a key member in their duo-turned-trio. He is also the Unholy Object of Love/Lust when the creator feels like making steamy crack!fic with either of the two other (at least, that is until the creator finally landed him a boyfriend).
