Matthew doesn't believe in unnecessary violence and actively finds different ways of solving disputes without using violence. When it is necessary however, he won't hesitate to do what needs to be done. He always keeps murder as a last resort though. He greatly values all life and only kill when there is no other way.
Ever since he could remember, Matthew loved magic. He was so amazed by the weird nature of what seemingly couldn't be explained. His parents would take him to see my favorite magicians perform their famous tricks and do the impossible. He truly believed that these men and women were sorcerers using their powers to amaze entertain and amaze people. For him, witnessing magic was truly stepping into another world.
As he got older, he decided to apply for jobs where he would be assisting different magicians. Not only would he be learning how to do different tricks, he would also get first hand experience with dealing with crowds on stage magic shows. Matthew hoped to one day become a magician himself and preform in front large audience. Not only would that fulfill his dream, but he would also be able to inspire others who loved magic as much as he did. He was eventually hired by a magician named Daniel Martin, or going by his stage name, "Mister Surreal".
He spent many years helping him behind the scenes and on stage as his assistant. He grew to be a second father to Matthew. In fact, he would soon become the only father to him, because my parents would eventually die in a car crash. He spent years in sorrow, with his craft being the only thing that could give him any joy. While he remained Daniel's assistant, he just didn't get the same satisfaction that he used to get out of magic.
One day, while on tour, he was take inventory of different props in the backroom. He was going through the shelves when he accidentally knocked down a crate which contained a large number of books. He began to pick them up but soon noticed one that looked very strange. He flipped through it and saw the pages lined with foreign symbols and images. He figured that since had been working for several hours that he could take a break and flip through it.
One of the pages was based on hand gestures and chanting. He had never scene a trick like this one, so he decided to try it out. As he began to try to copy what the book instructed, the pages began to glow. He immediately stopped and fell backwards in shock. He looked up and saw Daniel standing outside of the room staring at him with a blank expression. He simply told him that "they should talk.
He explained to Matthew that he was actually a sorcerer who had been protecting the Earth from all kinds of mystic threats for several ages. He would take upon the guise of different people by changing his appearance whenever he felt that his enemies were closing in on him. He would fake his death, and become a different person. Matthew asked him why he spent his time preforming a magic shows. Daniel told me that this world needs to keep a sense of wonder and excitement in order to to truly grow into something better.
He explained that he wanted to one day retire and pass the mantle on to someone else. Matthew asked why he was the one to be chosen, and Daniel explained that he was someone pure of heart who truly deserved to know the secrets of the universe. Since then, Matthew would be trained to perform real magic with Daniel as his teacher. He learned to do many things that were considered truly impossible. He had learned things that I once thought could only happen in fairy tales.
But one day, Matthew and Daniel battled a mysterious hooded being that had that entered their world. While they won the battle, Daniel was severely injured and needed immediate medical attention. Matthew took him to a sanctuary that would be able to heal wounds of supernatural beings, but not even that was able to save him. Ever since then, Matthew has taken up the mantle of sorcerer known as "Mister Surreal" and inherited the magical location called the Sanctum of Cryptic Sources
Mastery of the Mystic Arts
He later would go on to locate the ancient Himalayan temple called “Nerrupo” where he would take up more practice in his craft as a way of dealing with the new wave of grief that he was inflicted with in his life. While there, he was able to make great leaps in his studies and found himself to be rather adept when it came to using more unusual and forms of magic. His masters at the were also very quick to take notice of how advanced he had become in such a short period of time and watched him progress from a distance.
As time went on, Matthew began making such great leaps in his studies that he began to develop his own magical abilities that would originally stem from what he had read and would be experimented with in different ways to test the limits of his power. This would go on for several weeks within his own quarters until he would be found out by his masters and promptly scolded for his actions. The things that he was looking into were beyond his control that would too dangerous to tamper with.
He would continue with his “normal” studies and in the process would impress his masters with both his aptitude and unique abilities that he had acquired while studying there and expanding that various amounts of knowledge that he would acquire. He even stayed there long enough to the point where he would help instruct other students and help them with their practice as well. For the first time in quite a while, he felt that he had a true purpose in what he was doing.
Later on, he would go onto the route where he would even be given the title “master” and became one of the leading teachers of the temple. With this position, he would be allowed to take the part in the regular meetings that would be held in the chambers in the temple, where he and his fellow masters would discuss the current state of affairs of the magical community and all things it concerned itself with. Matthew knew that these meetings were important, but he couldn’t help the feeling of boredom that he had.
Most of the meetings were fairly, normal matters that were not to serious and could be easily dealt with, but one issue that was brought up very often at the time was the small fracture hat was found within the timeline as a result of magical manipulation. Some at the table would simply dismiss the matter, while others would keep bringing it up in attempt to convey the importance of the issue. The fracture was spoken of so often that the masters of the temple eventually decided to look into it further.
After using a chronokinesis spell, it was found that there was a massive crack within the time stream itself, one that was slowly eating away at the very foundations of the timeline. There was such little time to deal with it problem by the time that it was found, that only option that they had at the moment was by themselves time. The way that this would work was that the temple would have its own time frame be isolated from the rest of the world in such a way that it would move thousands of times faster than the normal time frame as well as isolating it from the normal time frame.
This however could only be allowed to move at this rate, anything higher than that would result permanent damage to happen to the rest of the timeline. In this situation, Matthew was forced to learn the chronokinesis spell so that the help in the aid of the other masters of the temple. However, even while in this situation, Matthew would still be learning other spells and expanding his knowledge for the purpose of dealing with whatever temporally displaced threat would come of this.
After dealing with the threat for what was centuries from their perspective, the masters of the temple were finally and to deal with the crack in the timeline, but not without some after effects of their work. The timeline crack resulted in certain temporal anomalies as well as anachronisms that had emerged as a result of the prolonged amount of time manipulation. Ones Matthew would deal with with his newfound knowledge.
