Commander Matty Matheson

Commander Matty Matheson

New York City, Earth 35 year old Male

Matty is a typical looking military type. Standing at 6'1" he is well built and muscular, he has brown hair however it is rarely grown as he always is cleanly shaven and buzz cut. When he is not in military uniform Matty sports his beat up old band t-shirts, and a pair of black levi jeans. A quick look at him outside uniform would make it look like he was some washed up musician, however Matty is quite intelligent, not only in covert operations, but in medicine, and literature.

Matty grew up in a broken home. His parent's (who should have split up) were not only physically abusive but mentally abusive. Their addiction to drugs, and gambling left them little to no money. Matty had to fight to not only survive at home but also while in school. Not having enough money to buy new clothing he was bullied constantly. Finally when he became a teenager Matty committed himself to working as he could then have enough money to support himself and live a somewhat normal life. Working minimum wage however wasn't enough for Matty to escape the terror of his home life. The money he would stow away as his "escape" fund was always being raided by his monstrous parents who needed it to fuel their addiction.

Matty finally knew how he could escape his life, how he could change things for himself and not look back. Out of the sum of money that he saved he decided to get as much of his body tattooed, the searing pain of the machine dulling the pain from his family.

He then decided to join the UNN Navy. Matty trained relentlessly while moving up the ranks in the Navy. The hazing he took by his fellow cadets was nothing in comparison to what he experienced as a child. He gained the respect of his commanding officers, his relentless drive moved him into an opportunity to work beneath Fred Johnson.

His first major assignment was to travel to a remote refinery station, Anderson station where there were reports of the workers rioting. The anxiety of travel was overwhelming as this wasn't a simulation. Strangely he felt prepared for potential combat, he longed for it. He felt the duty to fight for his home. All these feelings came to a screeching halt when the truth revealed itself. He saw the transmission come through, saw the worried looks on the people about to die on Anderson station. As the station was destroyed and their ship flew back to base all Matty could do was feel an overwhelming sense of loss and guilt for what he had taken part of. The feelings he felt about killing all those innocent people was enough for him to realize that he could have easily slipped into the same patters as his parents. He decided that he needed to again focus himself and do the best he could to not only help his country but to help anyone possible.

It was at that time that he became a private mercenary for hire, aside from his dealings with the UNN Navy.
