A thoroughly lovely chap, who is kind to animals and an excellent writer of fluff and rules. Not to be confused with Matthew Ward, who is entirely fictional, and also the devil.
Mat is kind, taller than you expect and quite shy. Hopes to be a proper novelist some day. It makes him a little sad that his fictional namesake has lead to idiots making threats of physical violence to his face and going on and on about him as if exterminated the jews or something.
But then again, gamers ARE twats.
