And it look like uncle Martyn is tad annoyed (or at least I assume he is, becaue getting the drop of someone like that doesn't look lke the action of someone who' in for a casual visit)

You're right about the quote, wrong about the character.
Check the Character's spoiler. Martin's hair is a different color (going prematurely gray, Years of stress, PTSD, Drug use, bad sleep, and enough mental conditions to give a psychiatrist a heart attack will do that to you), his eyes are sunken (Lack of sleep), and he has DMW (Dead Man Walking, Deathwishers were encouraged to make a joke out of Death, to think of themselves as Dead already so they would go unafraid into battle). This guy has none of those things.
