42 (PRIOR TO REVIVAL)
As anyone can see, this guy is really big. One may think he'd be pretty scary, or mean or something, but unless you're an enemy of Earth, that is not the case. Matt is a very nice, compassionate man. He is undoubtedly loyal to the Vanguard and to his friends. He doesn't speak as much as he listens, so sometimes he seems aloof and proud. There might be a shred of truth to that; he takes great pride in his work and sometimes he can't help but criticize other people's methods of getting the job done. His military background and admiration for Commander Zavala make him a wonder on the battlefield. He's always the man with the plan. His plans usually work, too. Outside of combat, he really doesn't do much except think about his next strike or patrol. However, since he's quite athletic, he's been known to kick around a soccer ball. He thoroughly enjoys spending time with his friends, even if all they want to do is lounge and relax.
Matt is very tall and broad-shouldered, obviously very strong. He has a dark complexion, dark eyes, and a buzz cut, but if he were to let his hair grow, it would be very curly and black. He wears dark green paint over his right eye, in parallel lines that almost form an arrow.
As a Titan, Matt wears the usual heavy armor. He only wears green, but he isn't picky about the shade of green, as long as it isn't neon. He walks with purpose everywhere he goes, showing the confidence and power he possesses. He keeps his Ghost, called Armstrong, in the Competitive Shell, which is the only neon green thing that he likes.
He was born on the poorer side of town, one of many siblings in his family. They were a tight-knit family and he grew up surrounded by brothers and sisters. Before the Collapse, Matt was a soldier. He was happy to serve his country no matter the cost, as most soldiers are. The details of his life from joining the military up to the Collapse were rather uneventful. He dated but never married, never had children, and he fought when he had to. When he didn't have to fight, he would either work out or go out with his friends. It was a suitable life for him and he liked it just fine. It was all he knew and all he wanted.
Eventually the Collapse did happen. If you ask him about it, Matt will tell you that he doesn't remember much. He remembers the chaos of everything falling apart. He remembers worrying about his family and trying to get to them. And that's it. The reality of it was that he died shortly after it all started. The world was in chaos around him so it's no surprise that he and many others were killed in the first few days.
The next thing he remembers was the bright light of the sun and a strange voice beckoning him to get on his feet. He stood and discovered his new Ghost. The rest is history; the same old story. He trained to be a Guardian and now defends the solar system from the Darkness.
