*[[Martin Longbow|Martin conDoin, Duke of Crydee]] - also known as Martin Longbow, son of [[Duke Borric]]
[[File:Martin.jpg|thumb|left|]]Martin has two younger brothers, [[Lyam I|Lyam conDoin]] and [[Arutha conDoin]]. Martin is best known as Duke Borric's Huntmaster and Forester, although he later rose to become [[Duke of Crydee]] after being acknowledged by his father. Following the [[Riftwar]] he married [[Briana]] of Armengar, of the line of Alwynne; they had two children: [[Marcus conDoin]] and [[Margaret conDoin]]. Some time after the sacking of the Far Coast, he abdicated his position as Duke of Crydee in favor of his son Marcus.
*[[Martin_conDoin_(son_of_Henry)|Prince Martin conDoin]] - son of Duke [[Henry_conDoin|Henry]] of Crydee
Martin departed to live in Elvandar, in the forests where he had spent so much of his boyhood.
As a boy he was raised by the monks of [[Silban]]'s Abbey, near the elven forest and played with elven children and hunted with Prince [[Calin]] and his cousin, [[Galain]]
When he came to [[Crydee]], he was welcomed, but at his time for the [[Choosing]], instead of standing before the assembled Craftmasters with the other boys his age, he had been placed directly with the old Huntmaster by the Duke, his father, so that he would grow far from the court.
Over the years Martin became Huntsmaster and Duke's Forester; he was seen as distrustful by the adults of the castle but accessible to children. He was called Longbow because he had no equal with the weapon.
When Borric decided to travel to the [[Free Cities]] before the [[Riftwar]], Martin accompanied the party leading some trackers around the boundaries of Crydee and three days later, turned east that morning as they crossed [[River Boundary|river Boundary]].
=== Riftwar ===
[[File:Martin_bow.jpg|thumb|left|Martin during the Riftwar]]Martin as a [[Huntmaster]] acts as a scout and messenger to [[Elvandar]] for his brother [[Arutha]] during the [[Riftwar]] engagements at [[Crydee]]. Martin often patrolled the vicinity around Crydee for [[Tsurani]] forces. He caught [[Tchakachakalla]] and two other slaves during one of his patrols. When Arutha travels to Krondor to get aid Martin accompanies him. Despite their lack of success, they do manage to rescue the Princess [[Anita]].
After the end of the war he travels with his brothers to the coronation during which he faces a decision to be King or step down in favor of the named successor, his brother [[Lyam]]. He refuses the crown and is later made [[Duke of Crydee]] by Lyam.
Martin, Lyam and Arutha travel the eastern Duchies of the Kingdom and the Eastern Kingdoms. He is present during Arutha and Anita's wedding when Anita is seriously wounded. He is one of Arutha's companions on his quest to find the cure for Anita. After they return successfully he returns to Crydee. A year later, when Arutha fakes his death, Martin accompanies him to the Northlands in his quest to kill the [[moredhel]] chieftain [[Murmandamus]]. In [[Armengar]], he meets his future wife Briana. He is sent to get help from the dwarves at Stone Mountain for Armengar and later joins the rest of the Arutha at [[Sethanon]]. He returns with [[Briana]] to Crydee.
=== Post Riftwar ===
Martin comes to the aid of his brother Prince Arutha during the second uprising of the moredhel, aided by rogue Tsurani Great Ones. He and his elf companions play a vital role in distracting and leading away the moredhel from the rift-machine that [[Patrus]], Pug and Owyn along with Jimmy and Locklear have to destroy.
=== The Sacking of the Far Coast ===
Martin and his son Marcus are away hunting during the sacking of Crydee, during which his wife Briana is killed and his daughter Margaret is kidnapped. A broken leg prevents Martin from accompanying the rescue party that sets out after Margaret and the other captives.
=== During the Serpentwar ===
Having stepped down as Duke of Crydee in favor of his son Marcus, Martin is now living in Elvandar. An old man in his nineties, he is still fit and sharp.
Martin dies peacefully in his sleep in Elvandar, at approximately ninety-six years of age.
