The Scions of Amber
From Sacrifice to Prince
Martin is famously the Amberite who’s blood was spilled upon the Primal Pattern. He is also the son of King Random, but so far has not been named as Random’s Heir. Martin is seen in Amber for the occasional ceremony but otherwise stays out of public life and Court.
Martin is known to all his peers as someone who almost never answers a trump, and as a quiet man.
Those who have made the effort to know him better find him to be pretty affable. He’s a good drummer and knows how to party, even if he’s not the life of the party. Those who have instead have angered him know that he is good with a blade, and not shy about drawing it.
Many of the Elders seem to be split between pity and indifference about Martin, at least insofar as he remains a normal child of Random and not the heir.
