A prisoner in the Imperial Prison that was lucky enough to cross paths with Emperor Uriel Septim and the Blades.
After escaping and witnessing the Emperor's assassination, they are tasked with delivering the Amulet of Kings to Jauffre. The player meets him at the beginning of the game, as he is escaping from a group of assassins through a secret passage in the Imperial Dungeons.
After the Emperor's death, daedra invade Kvatch in order to hunt Martin down, but he is rescued by the player.
Despite being reluctant at first, he grows to suit the role of Emperor.

His attempts to flee are futile, and he is eventually killed, but not before handing the player the Amulet of Kings, which starts the main storyline of the game.
The last surviving son of Emperor Uriel Septim, Martin was raised as a priest in the city of Kvatch.
