About Matthias Lebeda
Background and Description:
Medium length brown wavy hair
No matter what he has on, Matthias can always be seen wearing a distinctive red scarf, embroidered at the bottom with the family motto, "Success through Grace".
Matthias is the second son of Lord Lebeda, which is not an easy position. The Lebeda family is known for its trading along the shores of Lake Reykal, and has become a very wealthy house. The first son of the Lord, and Matthias' older brother, William, has already made a name for himself as a thoughtful and ambitious merchant. Expectations abound from all sides, and Matthias decided not to follow the family footsteps and make a name for himself as a gladiator instead.
Using his families influence (and coin), he was quickly entered into many tournaments where he prevailed over other newcomers and seasoned veterans alike. Matthias, like his brother, quickly attained his own reputation, albeit one not as liked. A pompous, spoiled brat, that excelled in showmanship during his combat, and was both a sore winner and loser.
The Aldori Swordlords took notice of Matthias, and invited him to apprentice among them. Finally receiving some positive praise, his father gifted Matthias with a weapon passed down through the family, an Aldori dueling sword. Matthias took to the weapon in little time, but wields it more like a longsword than the traditional finesse the Swordlords use.
After hearing about the expedition to settle the Stolen Lands, Matthias used his noble heritage to get himself a charter and set off for adventure..
