Martin Cours is a fictional writer that had an article included in the Autopsy Report.
Cours was a writer for an unnamed newspaper during the initial events of The House of the Dead. Following an attack on Venice that saw the city sink into the ocean, Cours wrote a piece about the aftermath. Instead of focusing on the "sensational talk" of monsters or the death toll, Cours decided to focus his attention towards the cost of rebuilding Venice. The writer believed that the money should be put to more practical things, with the art and culture of Venice better left forgotten.
