Despite being a member of the staff, and the tragic loss of his wife, Matthew always try to lighten the mood of a rather angsty, or moody students and staff. He constantly remains the optimist and always attempts to empathize with others and give a shoulder to cry on. Though the mere mention of his wife could get him gloomy or distraught. With that in mind, Matthew open to have people emotionally open to him, he is rarely emotionally honest with others and himself.
Matthew is constantly at war with himself over his sworn pacifism. When he became a doctor, he promised to never do harm to anybody, human or otherwise. He also swore to never learn any magic that can purposefully harm anyone. Which greatly contrasts the teachings he was given from his father and mother who freely practiced blood magic and other dark magic. Because of this, he feels there is a darker, more violent side to him he attempts to hide away with his work as a teacher for White Magic, and as the
Matthew is polyamorous, which means he believes in the ability to fall in love with more than one person or partner, and that the relationship can be shared together between everyone. The loss of his wife causes him to search for love in all the wrong places. The only limits for him is that his lovers must be women. Demonic, monster, human, it means nothing to him. The only thing they must be okay with is they must love or understand his daughter takes priority in his life.
Weapon/magic: White Magic Mastery:
Matthew is a White Mage, which the common misconception of White Mages is that their source of magic is heavenly
or from Angelic sources. Quite the opposite. In fact, Matthew's powers actually derive from the same raw demonic power that other mages draw from. The key difference is rather than simply being the outlet for the demonic power, Matthew transforms it, and turns it from destructive energy to more constructive energy.
The constructive energy is the building blocks for white magic. With constructive energy, it can be altered or changed to heal injures, plagues, or even poisons in not only others systems, but his own. Being far more advanced, and trained in their arts of white magic. Matt is able to use constructive energy to provide positive effects upon himself and others. One of the more notable ones are barriers. The barriers upon activation of the spell, only reach to the outer layer of the affected person. Depending on the amount of energy used varies the strength of the shields. With a max charge, the shield could absorb the impact of a 40 ton kinetic blast. Blood Magic Adept:
Though Matthew has sworn off from using this art, and is abhorrently against it, Matthew has a fine tuned understanding, comprehension, and powerful control over blood magic.
Blood magic in a nutshell is much like regular magic, but with the twist that human blood can boost and increase the potency of the destructive energy. The most common use of blood magic is controlling blood flow and almost having a ambigious control over not just the users blood, but others as well. For blood magic to work, there must be an open wound from either the user, or a sacrifice to take control of. As long as the wound is deep enough to where blood can drip is enough for Matthew to use and abuse. Once the blood is taken from the system and directed by destructive energy and can be used as blades, or kinetic blasts. Quite obviously the more blood used, the stronger the already lethal attack becomes.
Perhaps the most sinister use of blood magic, would be blood control, where the user can direct the flow of oxygen blood cells from the targets brain and turning them into a slave of sorts. This magic however can be resisted and defeated against demons, or anyone mentally aware of how to defeat it. Because of this, in Matt's classes he teaches all his students how to defend from Blood Control and its affects. Background:
Matthew was born to a group of cult of humans that not only worshiped dark magic but attempted to use blood magic to alter humans into Demonic creatures. For most of his young life, Matthew was proven to be very adept at the dark arts that he was able to enslave and use the blood of sacrifices to murder groups and villages of non-believers
, and for most of his young life, he was dumb to it all and believed he was doing it for the greater good.
That was until he met the woman who would change his wife forever. Maggie Wolfwood, a solider who knocked common sense into Matthew figuratively and literally. After their first and only fight, where she nearly killed Matt, she took him into his home and raised him back to health. It didn't take long for the two of them to fall in love. Matt not only saw the error of his ways but vowed to change himself completely, he took up medicine, and became a doctor. In the same very process, he learned and mastered white magic.
It took years, but Matt and Maggie were able to have a child, but the celebration of their marriage, and their wedding caused his former cult to find him, and excommunicate him from their group. Which the only way to be excommunicated from blood magic, was death. The cult was able to summon, and command a demon, which attacked the Locke household. Even the combined strength of Maggie and the magic of Matt was not enough to repel the demon. So Maggie made the ultimate sacrifice and used the blood and life force of his wife to protect his daughter.
It has been five years since the death of his wife, and in those 5 years he had joined the Pandora Academy as refuge for his daughter from the cult he was raised in, and also as a means to further assist in the aide of human/demon interaction. Sexual Orientation:
