Biography

Pre-Apocalypse

Very little is known about Martin's life before the turn, though he stated that he would often watch football on Sundays and attended church regularly.

Post-Apocalypse

After hiding, Tyreese and Carol come across a shack and Martin, who mentions Michonne and Carl as he communicates with Cynthia (another member of Terminus) while planting fireworks. Tyreese and Carol overhear this while they get the drop on Martin, binding his hands with a seat belt in the shack as she sets off to rescue the others. Martin tells Tyreese to take a car and Judith and get out of there alive. When Tyreese turns his back to Martin when a herd of walkers approach, Martin lunges towards Judith and puts his hands around her neck, threatening to break it and orders Tyreese to go outside and face the herd of walkers. Martin hears Tyreese shouting and loud thuds against the wall as he pulls out his knife and walks towards the door. Tyreese is revealed to be alive and tackles Martin to the floor, slamming his knife hand to the ground a couple of times to make him drop it. Tyreese then punches Martin several times, saying that he will not kill him. When Rick and the others show up, Tyreese tells Carol that he killed Martin because he was threatening to kill Judith.

Though he was thought to have been killed by Tyreese. Martin was among the remaining Terminus survivors eating Bob's leg along with Gareth. When Bob starts laughing hysterically seemingly in panic at his predicament Martin offers to "shut him up". However Bob reveals he was bitten hours earlier and is "tainted meat" causing the Terminus survivors to panic and even attempt to throw up the meat they've eaten while Bob laughs in satisfaction until Gareth knocks him unconscious. The Terminus survivors then return Bob to the church and kill the surrounding walkers deliberately for the group to see trapping them inside. Later most of the group leaves the church for the school to kill the Terminus survivors only to reveal they were hiding in the bushes, having anticipated Rick's actions, and storm the church to kill those who remained behind. However the survivors are ambushed by Rick and the others who were aware of what Gareth was planning and force them onto their knees. Initially Martin defiantly remains standing until Abraham points a gun towards his head forcing him to comply. After Gareth fails to beg for his life Rick, Abraham, Sasha and Michonne murder the Terminus survivors, with Martin being killed by Tyreese's sister Sasha while Tyreese watches horrified in the next room. The next day Tyreese and Rick buries the Terminus survivors outside the church.

When scoping for Rick when he meets with Dawn's officers in Atlanta, Tyreese tells Sasha about Martin and reveals he couldn't go through with killing him since he didn't want to lose who he was. While Sasha is shocked to learn Tyreese lied to them she doesn't condemn him for sparing Martin and even believes it's good that he's managed to retain his humanity but doesn't believe she can reclaim hers anymore. Around the same time Gabriel explores the church and finds the remains of Bob's leg the Terminus survivors were feeding on confirming the group's claims of the survivors' cannibalism which Gabriel had previously refused to believe. Later the trail that Gareth and Martin left marked on several trees to find their way back to Terminus is followed by Morgan Jones leading him towards the church allowing him to find Abraham's note to Rick and ultimately finding Rick in Washington.

Martin later appears as a hallucination in a dream sequence when Tyreese is bit by a walker and dying. Martin antagonizes Tyreese within the dream, saying that this happened to him because he was "the kind of guy who saves babies." Martin also reminds Tyreese that Gareth only found the group because he wouldn't kill him and speculates that might've changed Bob's fate, but Tyreese is quickly reassured by a hallucination of Bob that Gareth wasn't involved in his fate and would've gotten bitten either way. Later when Bob, Beth, Mika and Lizzie are convincing Tyreese it's ok to let go Martin and The Governor continue scolding him for giving up but Tyreese ignores Martin and scolds the Governor for his hypocrisy. When Rick, Glenn, Michonne and Noah are carrying Tyreese to safety he continues hallucinating about the various horrors he's seen including Martin and the Governor's actions. Ultimately Tyreese dies peacefully surrounded by hallucinations of Bob, Beth, Mika and Lizzie while Martin and the Governor vanish symbolizing that Tyreese made peace with his choices.
