Matis is a thin yet lean human in his 40's, with green eyes and long but thinning black hair. He dresses in a manner more appropriate for merchants than lords. In his guise as the Pirate of Tarsis, Matis dresses in loose-fitted silken finery, completing his outfit with a red sash, black mask, and black three-corner hat.


Matis Blasim was born a Tarsian noble in 381 AC to Lord Rennik Blasim and his unknown wife. He remembers having a father, yet his mother's identity is a complete mystery to any Tarsians, and it assumed that she met her end at the "hands" of a shadow wight. Rennik raised Matis with the help of the lord's chamberlain, who occasionally regaled Matik with accounts of his younger adventuring days.

Rennik's displeasure at the Dark Knight occupation of Tarsis was well-known, and he was arrested and put to death in 398 AC. Matis tried in vain to convince other Tarsian nobles to free Rennik, but their hands were tied by Dark Knight politics. At that moment, Matis decided to fight the Dark Knights, and the Pirate of Tarsis was born.

Matis embarrassed both Dark Knights and Tarsian nobles during his career as the Pirate, but age is beginning to catch up with him and he is considering retirement. The recent goblin activities to the west, and Tarmak invasion to the east, have also made him rethink the Pirate's presence on the streets of Tarsis. As much as he dislikes the Dark Knights, he realizes that they are the city's best defense against possible enemies.
