Martin Trector was the youngest of eleven children. His strictly religious mother and father were 46 and 54, respectively, when he was born. His next oldest sibling was over seven years his elder. Martin was a stellar student in his first six years of public school. But in the first month of his seventh year, his 19-year-old brother died in a plane crash en route to a remote area of Central America. After the tragedy, Martin’s grades took a turn for the worse. At thirteen, his life was consumed by drugs and parties. During a particularly wild rave, Martin, high on a cocktail of drugs, jumped from a hotel balcony ten stories up and survived with a shattered arm, seven busted ribs, and a severe concussion.
Commander Byron arrived at the hospital two days later with Dr. Rosmir to perform tests on Martin. Tests showed that of all the Trectors, only Martin had Anomaly Fourteen. It was a rare occurrence for it to be found in just one member of such a large family. His parents refused to believe Byron when he told them about the Psion abilities. To them, Martin’s survival was an act of God, a second chance at life. Even after multiple demonstrations of Anomaly Fourteen, the Trectors refused to believe that what they saw was real. Fortunately, Martin was able to demonstrate a blast with his good arm despite having no training or practice.
Ultimately, Martin convinced his parents to let him go to Capitol Island. He confessed to them his drug use, the partying, and how he felt like they were too old to be bothered with raising him. He promised his parents that if they let him train, he’d clean up his act and make the necessary changes in his life. Byron refused to let Martin attend Psion Beta headquarters until he went 6 months without using any illegal substances. 6 months later, Martin joined the next class of recruits and began training.
Three months after Martin’s death in Rio de Janeiro in November of 2085, his older sister gave birth to identical twin boys. She named them Martin and Marty. Dr. Rosmir, on Byron’s request, flew to Australia to test the babies. Martin’s sister gave her permission against her husband’s wishes. Both infants tested positive for Anomaly Fourteen.
