24 (who?)
MATTHEW by raygirl MATTHEW by raygirl
Name: Matthew
Age: 23
Colour: Blue
Special Ability: Weather control

Matthew is the son of Sage and Holly, the angel of Motherly Love, and Rayman’s cousin…but he’s unaware of this when he meets Rayman after many years spent away from home. After his mothers’ death when he was five, Matthew was sent away to boarding school on the mainland so he could receive the best education in the world, as was his mothers wish. During his time away he rarely went home, and at the end of college he use money he had saved up to start travelling the world. His travels guided him to Spectrum Island and he was warmly accepted as a team member. Before he could settle down there however he was kidnapped by a group of scientists and dragged off to a secret research facility so they could illegally study his species.
While there Matthew was introduced to Carla, a young female scientist, and the two developed a friendship. Matthew took part in a variety of experiments to test various aspects of his body and mind. One such experiment went seriously wrong and seriously injured Matthew when a laser cannon fired directly into his eyes, permanently blinding him.
Carla slowly helped Matthew recover and get over the loss of his vision by teaching him Braille. It was she who found out that Matthew was to be terminated, and the two formulated an escape plan to they could run away together. The plan only partly succeeded as Carla was injured in the escape attempt and Matthew had to carry on alone in an automated speedboat. The only memento of her Matthew has now is a blue coat decorated with white clouds, a gift she made especially for him.
Thanks to the automate boat Matthew was returned to Spectrum Island and reunited with his old friends who have adapted to his new disability with ease. Far from being an invalid Matthew is very brave and powerful, able to create small pockets of localise weather to confuse or injure his enemies. Aside from that he’s very knowledgeable of plant and animal life and is a keen reader. He’s definitely the father figure of the group, the one the others, even Spike and Vert, look up to and respect. His wise advice and gentle personality help Dixie keep the group working.

So having feelings is childish? Making up characters is childish?

That must make people like Walt Disney and Brad Bird the biggest kids in the world, and that's awesome :)
