His homeworld attacked by the Imperium of Zakar, Matthew was captured as part of a test to see if the Imperium could awaken a soulcharged. As a life mage, he was of particular interest and was subjected to many horrible tests and tortures.
His vow of Pacifism kept him from protecting himself and others from his world, a guilt that has plagued him all of his life.
The initial torture failed to Awaken him, but it did bring a darkness to his power. He no longer held the purity of life as the truth, but looked to the mold and fungus that clung to life at the edges of his dark cell.
An eventual escape led to him discovering that his world had been destroyed completely, drained of resources and left as an empty rock.
This agony brought about his Awakening and his mental collapse.
He now follows the Imperium, thanks to the Followers of Chaos, who aid him in his quest to stop the Imperium and eventually destroy them.
