Personality and character

Matthew's demeanor is cheerful and optimistic at best, rarely ever set back by the current situations at hand. He usually tends to give sarcastic and joyful responses to most threats and conversations thrown at him, though he has his slip ups in personality. He doesn't give an effort to hide the annoyance and grief he is caused because of Serra's presence. He also is aggressive and overreacts to Jaffar admitting the murder of Leila, even attempting to kill the assassin and threatening Jaffar with the life of Nino before he eased his grief, knowing that Leila wouldn't enjoy having her death avenged in such a way. Despite his happy outlook on life, he can be serious and solemn on matters, such as Leila's funeral and reporting Lundgren's influence on Caelin to Hector.

Vs. Wire

Wire: "The Ostian spy. Why did you return?"
Matthew: "I’ve known you were here for some time. I also knew you were after Lord Hector, not me. You’re all professional assassins. You wait for your chance, and you don’t miss it. You were waiting for me to leave Lord Hector alone. That’s when you were planning to attack, right?"
Wire: "Ah… So that’s why you came back, is it? I was sure you’d gone back to play with the guards."
Matthew: "If I had, I would’ve taken Lord Hector with me. No matter what it took."
Wire: "Cheeky fellow, aren’t you? But you’re out of your league."
Matthew: "How so?"
Wire: "You think to challenge me? Prepare to die, you witless fool!"
Matthew: "Ghaa..."
