Mathias was born in the middle of Norway in 2010. This was before the formation of Nyheim, and before the outbreak. His childhood was rather normal, however by the year of 2019 his family decided to move to Nyheim to start a new life in the partly recognized state.
His father got a job in the now booming city and life seemed to settle and get into a proper groove. That was until the outbreak. The world fell into chaos and by the year of 2025, when Mathias was 15 years old the world had fallen. Nothing was how it used to be. As he was a young man, he managed to adapt to this new future somehow, but he would always have the memories of his childhood years when there were no dangers, no fear of the unknown.
Up until the mid 50s Mathias was a normal man. He had a day to day job and just tried to get by.
In the year of 2055 when PLIKT took control of the city and instated their reign, Mathias joined a rebellion company against the oppression. During one of the sieges they had on Nyheim, he fell down in an attempt to climb the gates going into the city. He fractured his skull and was left with permanent damage to his head.
After this day Mathias was never the same person again. He turned into some sort of animal, lusting for blood and metal. After his recovery he moved out of the city. While living outside Mathias started seeing and hearing things. His mentality got worse and worse, and his injuries made him more like a creature.
Random people he found strolling the wilderness would be his toys. He would bring them to his shack and tell them stories about their futures. Mathias believed he could see the future and used his sketchy visions to enchant those who met him. But he got old way faster than what was normal in the past. His body started to wear out.
He eventually found a new home with the Scrap Rats. This crazy bunch of people didn't mind his antics. This would be where he spent the next 16 years up until this day.
