You're a good guy, it's why you're gonna die today. It's why the baby's gonna die... Or you can get in that car, get out of here, keep on being lucky.
~ Martin to Tyreese.

Martin is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is a former resident of Terminus and serves as the secondary antagonist of the first half of Season 5.

He was portrayed by Chris Coy.

Pre-Apocalypse Edit

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 Edit

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 won't 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.

Martin and the remaining Terminus survivors had stormed the church, only to be killed by Rick, Sasha, Abraham and Michonne. Martin was stabbed to death by Sasha, Tyreese's younger sister, who watched horrified from the next room as he witnessed his sister do what he couldn't. Martin is mentioned by Tyreese as he talks to Sasha while they are scoping for Rick when he meets up with two of Dawn's officers. Tyreese tells Sasha that he had Martin while Carol was on the rescue mission at Terminus but he couldn't go through with killing him.

Martin later appears in a dream sequence when Tyreese is bit by a walker and dying. He antagonizes Tyreese within the dream, saying that this happened to him because he was "the kind of guy who saves babies." However, Tyreese overcame the antagonizing force in his dream when he stood up to the dream version of The Governor.
