Race: Human.
Gender: Male.
Age: 26.
Birthday: In the Summer of 488 A.V.
Birthplace: Zeltiva.
Current Location: Zeltiva.

Matthew has a bit darker skin then most of the generic human race, blessed with a creamy golden hue. His hair is a dark brown to almost black, usually styled into some windswept look, but naturally falling in loose curls. He has blue eyes, strikingly bright and shifting with different moods and thoughts. His face is clean-shaven and young-looking, with a strong jaw line and full lush lips. His eyelashes are long, all of the features combining to give him more of a "beautiful" appearance than a "handsome" one. His body is slim and defined, just enough for looks and not at all for any additional strength. He has a gold tattoo hugging the V of his hips, a near-mockery of the belt that Yahal so proudly displays. He has a light voice, with a very tiny bit of husk in the back of it, giving each word he speaks a slightly suggestive sounding meaning (even if he doesn't intend to).

Standing at 6'2, even though Matthew manages to have a fit figure and nice height, he somehow gives off the very exact opposite of intimidation. It is hard to see the man ever being a threat in a fight, merely because of his feminine beauty and professional appearance.

Matthew is a calm, quiet, thoughtful, and confident sort of man. He is straightforward in approaching others with any questions or comments he may have, not really being one who is shy or withheld. Sometimes he can be intimidated (knowing his health is in jeopardy), but often not that flustered, as embarrassment is a practically unknown concept to him. All of his shows of emotion are quite restrained, the man seemingly a professional above all else. However, he lacks an understanding of most social norms, and will usually ask any question that comes to mind, even if someone would consider it inappropriate. When it comes to unspoken rules, he is clueless. Some would consider him naive because of his innocence when it comes to social norms, and some just consider him refreshingly honest in his quest to sate his curiosity.

He is an extremely curious man, looking to learn all he can about anything. If something will obviously cause him harm in learning it, he will sometimes shy away after weighing the benefits and downsides. Normally though, he approaches new knowledge with an eagerness in his eyes and expression, such eagerness one of the biggest shows of emotion he regularly makes. His current occupation, prostitution, is currently his favorite subject to study. While quiet, reserved, and curious, Matthew has a dangerously gray moral compass. His mind is a highly logical one when it comes to dealing with emotion and everyday life. If something is considered "bad", Matthew is the one who will question why it is labeled that. This can and has put him in questionable territory. He is highly logical in most other facets of life, giving him a very simple view on many things.

When using his Seduction skill, Matthew is usually working his profession, and takes on an almost completely different personality.

Seduction Personality
A different personality was constructed just for the use of Seduction and Prostitution. It is a personality that was logically constructed, and can be adjusted on the fly to meet the needs of his immediate customer. His study of how to seduce was so through that he is actually quite good at it, even if it is just a professional charade to him.

When like this, he is bold and confident, the sort of man who knows what he wants and isn't afraid to express it. While polite and professional with his flirtations, he manages to throw a playful smirk and a bit of suggestiveness into any conversation he engages in. Practically an aura of confidence and carnal hunger radiates from him, soft enough to just barely feel on the edge of your conscious. Indulge in it, and it will grow and grow, a fire also sparking in Matthew's stare. As a logical man, Matthew takes everything apart and analyzes it, seeking the best way to solve every little puzzle of that thing. A person and their wants is just another puzzle, and Matthew's stare and smile promises that he will spend quite a bit of time to find every single possible solution. Somehow, it isn't that hard to believe he has the ability to perform on what his gaze swears to.

Positive: Clear-thinker, logical, confident, strong-willed
Negative: Unempathetic, confused by own emotions, impulsive, logical, naive

Special Notes

For any Dreamwalkers that may encounter Matthew's Chavi, they may notice that it was severely tampered with a very long time ago, most likely back whenever he was a child.

Karin's Necklace: A necklace with silver chains and a blue inverted triangle-shaped pendant made with high quality cold-iron. Given to Matthew by 'Karin', one of the Inverted, as a token of gratitude for servicing her in the Herald's Arms. It symbolizes that Matthew had attracted the attention of one of the Inverted and it would not be the last time he would see her... or them.

Dagger of Woe: The dagger's length is nearly two palm lengths, and from its tip down to its pommel it is pure black. Its edge is slightly curved, and there are faint designs etched along the blade that may have been magical in nature, but there are no obvious signs if they are. The dagger has a very nasty aura, and stinks of rotting flesh and sickness if observed with auristics. It also has a strange, twisting darkness like black vines that wrap its edges and encircle the pommel only visible to those of competent auristics or higher. If someone is merely cut by this blade they are infected by the curse held within its blade. It causes pneumonia-like symptoms as the darkness spreads, and the wound it causes will not clot and blood will slowly trickle forth. Stopping the blood flow slows the progress of the curse, but it requires a person marked with Healing to cure it completely. Once the dark vines reach the heart the person simply dies as their heart is stilled, and so wounds that are closer to the heart are more deadly than those farther from it. The time it takes for the curse to kill varies based on how deep the wound was, and how close to the heart it was. A shallow wound along the shin would take several days to finally kill, this time lengthened to a couple of weeks if the wound is constantly tended and the bleeding stanched. A deep stab in the chest could kill in seconds if the wound is directly over the heart.

The effects of the dagger will slowly fade unless used periodically on another person. If the dagger does not see use for a full year the curse will completely vanish and it will be just an ordinary dagger.

Escorting Her to the Time of her Life :
A dark book with a suggestive title written in dark red script. The inside is an old and dusty guide on being the ideal Escort in modern Mizahar; a subject that wasn't quite in demand back when the book was written, and still isn't.

Attaining Highest Sexual Pleasure :
A very scientific study on the methods used to attain just what the title suggests. The book is a pure black with white elegant letters, and details every little thing about how to handle every single little part of the common body in an erotic (but highly logical) way. Excellent if you like to put a lot of thinking into your love-making technique.

Tricksters and Troupes :
A questionable overview of Ionu and the Inverted. It is hard to tell if anything in the overview is actually at all correct, seeing as how it isn't really known if any 'facts' about Ionu and the Inverted are true facts. It is somewhat hard to write about everything behind the illusions without getting caught up in the illusions yourself.

Name: Dorian
Race: Human(?)
Gender: Male
Age: 9
Height: 4'6
Weight: 50 lbs

Appearance: Dorian is thin and lanky, and it is obvious he lived most of his young life with little or no food at all. He has permanent scars all over his body, burns that twist around his waist and over his back. His skin is pale like he has never seen the sun, but even if he stands out in the sun he will never tan. His hair is the color of dirt, though a bit darker, and usually its length is kept to just over his ears to hide their slight points. Dorian's eyes are now an off shade of brown, with flecks of cold along the edges of the iris. The pupils are normal from a distance, but up close one can see they are slightly more vertical than average.

Personality: He is a heartbroken boy who has seen much suffering in his life. It has left him hollow, empty inside. After losing his sister Dorian began to sink into himself, and his moods became more and more base and wild. Fits of anger and frustration are common, as well as defiance which comes with his age. While he respects Matthew, he does not see him as a Father. More like a babysitter who he HAS to obey to eat, but not because he owes his love to the man. When he feels he feels strongly, and can lead to rash actions after very little thought. Dorian can be quite the handful, but most of his actions are not done in spite. They are the actions of a kid who has lost too much too early.

Origin: Dorian and his sister are the results of MANY failed attempts to recreate Marcus Kelvic's work. They were not kidnapped as Dorian had said, but for a child it was more comforting to think there was a family out there missing him. They were born on Sahova, and from the very beginning they were used as test subjects and put through such tortures that their young minds had begun to plot them all out. The Sahovan Wizards decided that the boy and his sister were no longer useful in their work, and so were about to dispose of them. It was then that Dorian awakened a part of himself that no one expected. Locked deep inside of his subconscious was another being, a creature of pure wrath and rage fueled with blood lust and the desire to kill, and it was this power that saved both him and his sister and allowed them to escape to the harbor and catch a boat to Sunberth. The Silence was sent after them to dispose of these failed and wild experiments to end their lives because they could cause more harm in the world, and inconvenience the Wizards. It was only through the efforts of Matthew that Dorian was able to survive the ordeal, but it only weakened the chains that kept the beast within.

The thing that rests inside of Dorian's subconscious is, for the time being, held in check by the boy's very own will, whether he realizes it or not. When it comes to the surface the boy's body undergoes a physical change, doubling every one of his physical traits and giving him more strength and speed than the Sahovan Wizards had accounted for. It is wild however, and Dorian cannot control it.

Unknown to either Dorian or Matthew, Tanroa has performed one last intervention. She has sealed away this inner demon inside of Dorian, and for two years the seal will hold unless something otherwise disables it. After that time, however, the beast will slowly grow stronger and the boy will have to learn to master it himself. This was done in order to give Matthew a chance to instill good values and teachings on the boy in that time, so that when the creature does begin to emerge, Dorian will have some form of values and teachings to fall back on to help guide his actions.

The Story Thus Far:

Past Lives :
Absolom, belonging of Leth, Former Champion of Zintila.

Alternate Race: Myrian
72 Astronomy
51 Glyphing
51 Summoning
23 Architecture
14 Birdkeeping
14 Painting

Absolom was a fallen Ethaefal who came frighteningly close to taking his own life out of pure despair. His descent had broken some piece of him, the Ethaefel desperate to return to his former home. All was almost lost before a single bright star caught his eye, momentarily pausing what would have been his final moments. It was then that Zintila descended upon him, soft voice and beautiful presence appearing for the mere purpose of giving the pathetic creature some form of hope. Absolom was enraptured, and from that moment on made the Goddess as his reason to live. He fully devoted himself to her, funneling the despair and rage that resulted from his fall into serving her. Absolom rose through her ranks, and soon came to walk closely with the Goddess. It was right before the Valterrian that he was marked as her Champion. At this point he had came to love her with a passion that he had never known he could feel, though this was kept a secret from his beloved. He was content to walk alongside as her advisor and friend, knowing the troubles that would result from taking a God as the lover of a Mortal.

The Valterrian was evidence of this. He ran to Zintila as she fell, nearly breaking once more at the idea of his Goddess possibly being forever gone. When he found her broken and at the brink of death, Absolom swore to stay with her to the end. He protected her, laid by her, did everything in his power to stand with his Goddess and serve her for one last time. It was then that he confessed his love, knowing it was now or never. His confession was not given a response.

Zintila was soon rescued, two chosen Etheafal coming to rescue her by the command of Leth and Syna. He went with her, but the result of his confession soon took over his mind. He had served her, he had walked alongside of her, he had become her best friend. Had she not grown to love him as he had? No matter the results of Ivak's romance with a mortal, their love would be different. His obssession furthered, Absolom acting in her service more than ever before. He worked feverishly to perform in ways he thought would please her, even when she demanded that he rest. He helped construct large portions of the Skyglass found in Lhavit and continued to unwaveringly stand by her side. His unrequited love haunted him though, and soon he approached her a second time. He confessed his love, begged for hers in return, proclaimed that their wedding could be the event that Ivak and Kova had only dreamed of.

Zintila had always seen the folly of what Ivak and Kova would become, and now fully saw the extent of her most trusted servant's obssession. She rebuked him, firmly explaining that she loved him as a friend and nothing more, and that this was always how it would be. Absolom's heart and mind cracked, despair rearing inside of him once more. He feigned acceptance of the idea and returned to her side, but his soul had been fully broken. If he could not be of this world as her lover, then he couldn't stand to be in this world at all. In his absolute desperation to be truly a part of the thing he loved for all of eternity, madness suddenly consumed his lovesick heart. He took himself outside of Lhavit and ripped a portal open to the star of Jaleri, throwing himself into the abyss to be consumed by starfire. Only in death would he finally become a piece of his beloved.

History :
Matthew had always lived in Zeltiva. He was born into a wealthy family, with parents who had lucrative careers. He was enlisted in the University, intellectual potential spied as he toyed around with self-taught skills in school class. He was a bright child, leading them to expect the pursuit of medicine (just like his mother). The entire first school semester was funded by his family, and he was expected to become the next great man of his house. He had everything going right for him, the admiration of his peers, and the support of his incredibly proud family. He had a very good life and he understood this.




To Matthew, everything was hard to understand. The fact that scandal arose was a simple miscalculation on his part, and his career was a wise move. He had the looks, and the education. Why not pursue something that interested him? Why not pursue something that would challenge him, something that would teach him a concept he had no understanding of? With the situation in Zeltiva the way it then was, he soon left, deciding to strike out on his own and try once more. While his current actions fill the void, there is still something deep inside of him that seeks something as simple as purpose.

Syliras, in the Summer of 513 AV :
Matthew was familiar with the standard scholars and shipwrighting nobles, but not the varied crowd he would find in Syliras. While he had traveled to the city once before, he was not truly braced for all the color he would find. Looking back on Zeltiva, perhaps his life had simply been too routine for him to really experience it. He was quick to get a job at the Herald's Arms, and also advertised a personal Escort business, only opening him up to more and more people. There he was introduced to feelings of friendship, encountered when he somehow made a connection with Edreina. He was introduced to feelings of fear and intimidation, encountered when he approached Razkar. Compassion was encountered for a slave at the hot springs, while gratefulness was felt for the woman at the blacksmith. Dozens of emotions that he had been able to ignore or avoid while he was at Zeltiva, now assaulting him from all sides. More and more people approached him, and more things were felt. They have been easy to handle on a logical level, easy to analyze and respond to in an intelligent way. His methods of handling emotions evolved while in Syliras.

Then came the Inverted one, who gave him a taste of emotion beyond his control. He was subjected to lust that he could not analyze and respond to, and instead was taken control of by it. Faced with the realization that it is still possible to be an emotional creature, no matter how much cold logic one applies, Matthew has been shaken deep within. He thrives on his ability to disconnect himself from what he sees as dangerous things, and is horrified to find that his ability may simply not work.

He still pursues his business, and looks deeper into becoming a harlot. He has a drive, for this is the purpose he has decided to set himself on. He craves to learn the most and become the best, to fully devote himself to this one single thing and master it. He is still trying to find if this will actually fill the void that he feels somewhere deep inside, or if this is a mere distraction until the emptiness makes him ache yet again.

More and more he finds that he feels horribly distant from everyone else he encounters, both confused and curious about how people are and why they act the way they do. Social norms and common understandings between people seem to elude him. The drive for love or glory baffles him, and the lack of such a drive in himself makes him wonder. He set out in his career so that he could expose himself to new and unique social situations, so that he could challenge a hungry mind and simply learn. Why is it the more he develops and learns, the more distant he feels?
