Personal History:

Martin was born on September 30th, 1934 in Wisconsin. His father was a cryptologist, and his mother died in childbirth. His father worked for the military for World War 2, and often came home with his work. Martin often asked his father how to do his job, so his father taught him how to break codes. This is how Martin developed his passion for codes.

Martin was always trying to develop more codes. He often created codes, and he practiced using them by describing the things he saw nearby in his notebook, and then writing those descriptions in code. He often went into a forest near where he lived to practice this activity.

When Martin was in school, he was at the top of his class. He had all A's and B's, and he was in the math class of the grade above him. However, he was always more focused on studying rather than interacting with his peers. In college, he took a course in cryptology. Due to his excellent work in this class, a foundation agent in the college took notice of him and contacted him to be hired as a foundation cryptologist.
