Allow me to introduce… Marten Zann

marten zann

Name: Marten Zann
Age: 23
Born: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Occupation: violinist

Today, I’d like to introduce Marten, an aspiring violin virtuoso from Amsterdam. Despite his young age, Marten is a widower.

He met Annie, the love of his life, in music school when they were still teenagers. As soon as Annie turned 18, they got married and moved together, but their luck only lasted two short years before Annie became severely ill and passed within weeks.

If you ever get to meet Marten, you will find him very reserved, maybe he won’t even talk to you. Please don’t take it personally. He does try to carry on, but his only comfort is his music.

The Music of Marten Zann

OOC Information:

I have debated for a while whether to introduce Marten as a character. His tragic story sure isn’t for everyone – and isn’t meant to be. Annie never existed as a character, though, she is just part of his tale.
On the other hand, and the reason why I did introduce him here, is the fact I love to use him as a model. Maybe I am the only one to see the pain in his eyes, but knowing about him, his story, helps me create a certain mood for some photos. I am not sure if that makes sense to anyone else, but that’s the way I tick.
Marten’s name is inspired by the main character of my favourite webcomic, Questionable Content, and the short story The Music of Erich Zann by H.P. Lovecraft. The story is about a voiceless violinist who keeps away demons with his music.
