Martha is an elderly women working as a lottery vendor at Budehuc Castle. She has a strong and blunt personality but she speak very flatteringly when she wants to try and sell lottery tickets. She sometimes works with Piccolo to drive business to one another.
When Thomas first became lord of Budehuc Castle, Martha was wary but quickly came around as he worked to prove himself. As she has been a resident at the castle for some time, she knew a lot about its history and helped Thomas uncover its legal status to ensure its free trade zone status. Although elderly, she has not lost her pride as a member of the Karaya Clan, refusing to back down or be denigrated as a "barbarian" by people such as the Zexen Council. When the War of the Champions came to Budehuc Castle, she would join the Fire Bringer alongside Thomas.
Following the war, she would continue to operate her lottery stand, now with no shortage of customers as the castle's population grows, ensuring a permanent smile on her face.
