"Many great chefs and Bishokuya all had one thing in common: Even when they prepared and hunted ingredients and beasts, they almost always treated them with respect. The enemy of Ingreidents aren't those who use them for survival, it's those who abuse them for their own gain."

Martha Dayton(マルタ・デイトン, Maruta Deiton) Is a female Gourmet Hermit that lives in the Lost Forest alongside her husband, Tobias Dayton who is also a Gourmet Hermit that protect and serve the ingredients of the area. It has been seen that Martha was originally born in the Gourmet World, but did not any physical uniqueness, resulting in her being a unique case of biology as being the first ordinary human to be born there, along with her Animal Partner Kit, who she found as a young cub and took with her when she entered the Human World. Due to her unique ability to sense the emotions of ingredients, many often have given her the title of the Red-Hair Hermit, making her well-known all around the Human World.
AppearanceEditWhen she was a child, Martha showed to have a round face, which, with her red hair naturally framing both sides of her face, made her look like a tomato. Her attire was a sleeveless kimono-style blouse that was yellow in color and held closed with a green obi over a short-sleeved mesh shirt with a pair of dark blue shorts and brown sandals. In her adolescence, she wore a short-sleeved, tan kimono-like blouse with a dark embroidered border, held closed with a black obi, a dark skirt and stockings that stopped at her thighs with a cloak and brown sandals.
As she got older, she showed to have become an attractive woman who had long, bright-red hair. She wore an elaborate, high-collared kimono with the symbol of her husband on the back of the obi which was tied around her waist. Often at times she often prefers to keep her hair loose, but for her husband, she arranges her hair in buns with hair pins in them and three clips in the front. She also wore a dark shade of red lipstick and had a violet-colored diamond mark on her forehead that she recieved after finishing her training as a Gourmet Hermit.
In her younger days during the time she spent living with her Mother, Father, and Grandmother, Martha showed to have sort of a secluded side, always wanting to prefer reading and learning about nature and it's unique ways than going around with other kids and playing. Despite this, deep down she wanted to know what having friends was and often went out to see what the other children were up to. One of her most insecurities was her red-hair, often at times wondering why she was the only one with a unique hair like that in the Gourmet World, often feeling ashamed of it when some of the adults would look at her as if she was a freak. During those times, Martha often only ever opened up to her parents and her grandmother, who often understood her pain and comforted her whenever she felt sad and lonely. It was also shown that Martha slowly developed a curiosity and wonder for the many ingredients and creatures in the world, even going as far as adopting a young cub of a Sol Fox when it was abandoned and helped it, naming it Kit as it became her new partner.
