Appearance: Matt is a solidly built human male. He stands 6' 4" tall and weighs over 240 lbs., almost entirely muscle. Though his hair is brown, he keeps it cut very short, to the point that it appears to be blonde. Matt has a square face and a has brown eyes. Sometimes, he has a goatee, while at others he shaves clean. History: Matthew claims to hail from a world far different from any in Known Space. His tales place is birthplace at a strange place called California, a world of technological wonder. Matthew was a "football player" in some kind of "High School" for athletes. As Matt can put together, he was whisked away from a life of drinking, women, and sports to Cormyr, on Toril. There, he was commanded by the Court Mage Vangerdahast to rescue a princess from the hands of Zhentarim agents. His adventures was long and heroic, but ultimately he found the princess in the a prison under the Halls of Eveningstar. Unfortunately, what Vangerdahast failed to tell him was that the "princess" was the daughter of an orc king from the Thunder Mountains! Vangerdahast feared that if something were happen to the orc princess, the orc king would attack Cormyr in revenge. To make a long story short, Matt returned the princess, much to his disgust, to the orc king. Unfortunately, the princess took a liking to Matt and wished to marry him. In very short order, Matt was fleeing for his life. He booked passage on a tradesman docked at Suzil and fled into wildspace. He now works as a sailor, always relating stories about his glory days as a football player and his days bar hopping. He is deathly afraid of orcs, and fully believes that the princess is hunting him down.
