Physical Description: Matthew could probably have been considered handsome a few years ago. Now however, shrapnel scars have scoured the right side of his face, leaving a maze of time-faded scars from his temple to his jaw. Light blue eyes and dirty blond hair, coupled with skin left pale from long years of postings ship-board.

Personality: When on active duty he is intense; a real go-go-go individual. Run, don't walk. Walk if you can't run, crawl if you can't walk. He will often take the brunt of the risks, either not trusting his squad mates to do things right, or simply not trusting them not to turn on him the first chance they get. He rarely seems to sleep when in the field, often going so far as to take stimulants to keep himself going for a few extra hours. When off duty, all the energy seems to drain out of him, the burden of the things he has done catching up with him. He has trouble sleeping, often relying on pills to help him get through the night.

He has little trouble facing his fears when in uniform and on duty, which is a strong contrast to when he is off duty and wearing civilian clothes. When following orders or working to accomplish his duties, he can walk into crowded places without hesitation, but on off hours is hard pressed to leave the barracks, let alone the base. As such, he greatly prefers life aboard a military ship where large crowds are rare, to say the least.

History: Matthew is a veteran of the Titan Wars, a rebellion of the colonies on the moon of Titan. Millions of colonists had taken up arms against the Terran Government, the planetary garrison siding near to a man with the colonists. The battle had been long and bloody, starting with the fiasco of the Orbital Drops of day 1, where some 70,000 Marines had been dropped directly into the capital city of Novus Spes under cover of night. Thousands were dead before they hit the ground, lost to intense anti-air fire. Nearly half those that survived to the ground were turn-coats, siding with the colonists.
War had been a thing of the past for most people, forgotten and ignored. The war on Titan was heavily televised, broadcast throughout the solar system and heavily slandered against the Marines. Video footage was often leaked of Marines firing on unarmed civilians, casualty reports were exaggerated and the government often labelled as a totalitarian or militaristic regime.
Civilian support for the war was nearly non-existent; terrorist attacks on military targets spanned the solar system, even on Earth. With the brunt of the fleet tied up in a blockade of Titan, trying to keep outlaws from bringing in more fighters and supplies, pirate activity had increased throughout the system, preying on troop transports and merchant vessels alike. This only continued to inflame the outcry against the government and military; the loss of a cruise ship near Pluto to pirates held the headlines for weeks and inflamed greater outcry.
The government had been forced to turn to conscription early in the war, as casualties were high. The conscripts ages ranged more and more with each year as literally millions of government troops were lost in the grim fighting on Titan and throughout the system. Anger bubbled higher and higher. The war dragged on for four years, and by the end the entire solar system had felt it dearly; government offices and military targets bombed, assassinations of government officials and even soldiers on leave targeted and attacked.
The truth of the war is known to only a very select few; even the majority of the troops on the ground have no idea what really happened on Titan. The rebellion had been caused by an alien influence; an insidious relic found far below the planet's surface. Psychic beings of terrifying power were released and bent their attention to enslaving mankind. Few were immune to their powers, and most gave in almost immediately or simply went insane from their manipulations. Once military intelligence discovered the truth of what was going on, an 'all or nothing' mission was launched to destroy the artefact and end the war.
