Although the focus of Martin's work is on sculptures of human figures, he himself shuns society, preferring to work in his workshop alone. The only people he lets into his studio are the models he hires to pose for him. But while he is polite, even friendly, he sees them as nothing more than a necessary part of his work.
Eshana is a model who was hired by Martin to work on his first major project. However, two weeks into the project, Martin decided to abandon it because of a lack of funding. A week later Eshana went missing. She was never seen again.
Nothing much is known about Giuseppe, except that he turns up now and again to offer advice to Martin.
