"The Death of the Mennonite Martyr, Dirk Willemsz" has an extremely brief biography. Most of what is known about Willemsz, is known about his re-capture and martyrdom.
I decided to include a map for the village of Asperen, where Willemsz lived and died.

One Writing Tip for a Martyr
This would be a foreign concept for most of us, and we may be fascinated or repulsed. We might never consider that this would be a choice. I'm reminded of Admiral Kirk being asked to join the prisoners' club when jailed on the Klingon penal colony. "He wants your loyalty to...". "He's got it".
The general writing tip is to lead your reader to feel an emotion through empathy for the main character.
