Martin Taylor Character in Albion | World Anvil

Martin Taylor

Martin Taylor's family has come up in the world. His mother began her adult life in service as a nursemaid, before eventually marrying his father, an accountant. An older sister died of tuberculosis, which has also taken other members of his extended family.   Martin did well on his exams, and entered Schola, being sorted into Boar House. There, he met Galen Amberly when they were both selected as candidates for the Dwellers At The Forge, a secret society focused on a Promethean mode of progressive approaches to knowledge, learning, and political action.   By the time In The Cards begins, Martin has gotten some regular reporting assignments, but he is still working to establish himself and find a secure position as a journalist.
