Matthias Corvinus was born a half breed. Half vampire, half warlock. His father, William Corvinus fell in love with a wandering mage, Lucia Ariana. About five years after Matthias was born, the village that they lived in, Garlo, was invaded and destroyed, Matthias's parents dying in battle. He was taken in by an old man who lived outside of the village, and he raised him as his own. With Matthias's parents being the head of the village, the old man knew well of what Matthias was. He taught Matthias everything that he could about his heritage, trained him on how to use his magic, and helped him control his thirst.
Being half warlock helped with this, allowing him to be able to survive on normal food. There are times however, when he is extreamly weak, that Matthias must feed. This is rare though, and has happened very few times. Another thing that being half warlock helps with is daylight. Matthias can withstand daylight for the most part, however if he is out in it too long, he will pass out and even go into a coma if he is exposed long enough, or if it is extreamly hot. The sun does hurt his eyes, the hotter the day, the more his eyes burn. His core temperature rises way above normal as well, this being the main cause of all this.
Being half vampire has its perks as well. His five senses have been extreamly heightened. He the vision of a cat, his night vision being perfect. He can smell someone from over 100 feet away. He can hear someone whisper from the same distance. The combination of his two halves have allowed Matthias to develope a 6th sense; a "Third Eye". What this means is that Matthias's frontal lobe is more developed, allowing him to be able to "see" someone that is not directly infront of him. If there is a car coming down the street, he can close his eyes and see who is in that car, what they're wearing, what is on the dashboard, etc. This ability is limited however, and can only be used from a maximum of 60 feet.
Further more, Matthias's magical abilities are rather limited. He can summon objects by concentrating on what it looks like, the size, etc. He can not summon money, though he keeps trying. He can jump very high, about one and a half stories. He can force his aura to be seen, a mixture of black and dark blue matter flowing around his body. He can only do this for a short period of time, due to this using a fair amount of energy. He can also read thoughts of those who's mind is weak, or if their guard is let down. His speed and strength have also been sharpened, allowing him to dodge bullets for instance; being able to crush someones juggular. There is one more thing that Matthias's magic allows him to do. Also, by concentrating hard enough, Matthias can build his magic up to its limit, then send it out in a shockwave of power. This shockwave destroys anyone within its path, and has a radious of around 50 yards. This drains Matthias however, putting him in a critical state. The only thing that will allow him to survive, is to feed.
For a time, Matthias trained in Japan, learning various styles of Martial Arts. He has mastered each of them, each one making him stronger, faster, and better. Each had one important thing in common for him: discapline. They all taught him to control himself, his actions....his hunger. After almost 20 years in Japan, Matthias traveled to America, and "planted his roots" in the west, outside of Tombstone Arizona. There, he learned how to be the fasted draw and best aim with a 6 gun.
Sometime after, Matthias was captured by the same people who destroyed his village long before, and they experimented on him. They injected demon blood into him for over a period of a year. The demons blood made his senses more accute, his strength and speed better than ever.....and his hunger that much more dangerous. He remembered his teachings though, and reminded himself every day of the discapline it taught him. There were times that his hunger got the best of him, but he only fed on rats. He swore to never feed on humans. The demon blood also made his K-9's half an inch longer, making them nearly 3 inches when he changes. His fingernails are also longer, thick and sharp like claws. His eyes also turn red when he changes, demon eyes.
After they released him, he went on the run for a while, winding up in the south during the railroad days. He lived in solitude for a while, afraid he may hurt someone. After months, he finally moved into a town, and there he lived, loved, and lost.
It is now present day, his physicality still that of a 25 year old, his mind full of history. He has survived every war fought, has seen almost every invention, and has only loved once. He now tracks down those who destroyed his village all those years ago, and has not let anything nor anyone stand in his way yet. He moves around, gonig from state to state, city to city, town to town. He has even gone to different countries on occasion, returning to Japan numerous times. Everywhere he goes, he does what he can to get by. He helps those in need, takes up a job, and if he has to, sleeps on the street, or on a roof. He is always on the look out for clues and information that will help him track down the group that he seeks.
Matthias's weapons are: A pair of colt .45 revolvers with sandalwood grips that Matthias picked up while living in the south. Thes guns remain at his sides at all times, hidden by his trench coat. He also can call upon two swords which were specially made for him. Ukiyo, the sword of life, and Takai, the sword of death. He can also call upon Sasori, his scorpion staff which was given to him by one of his Martial Arts masters. When called upon, his weapon of choice appears in his hands. Matthias is able to be rid of his weapons in the same fasion, simply speaking the name of the item.
Matthias's appearence is as follows: His eyes are light blue, turning blood red. His hair is very long, gonig down to the middle of his back, and is jet black. His skin remains pale, a milky tone, but rather smooth. He remains clean shaven most of the time, shaving when he can. He stands at 5ft. 11in. tall, and maintains a weight of around 160 lbs., atleast 88% being muscle. His attire consists of a normal, black trench coat, either a red or black button down shirt (sometimes dark blue), and black jeans. He wears a pair of leather combat boots, and sometimes stores a dagger or two in his boots. His gun belt is dark brown leather, worn from years of use.
Around 80% of Matthias's body is covered in scars of various sorts. The ones on his back are mostly from being whipped, some however are from bullets or swords either going through his body, or getting stabbed/shot from behind. He can't remember if he got stabbed by a knife as well back there, but he knows that there is one of those on his left side, a few actually. Spread out across his arms are scars from being cut or stabbed, a bullet in the left shoulder, a dog bite on the right forearm. His face has a small scar above his right eye, this being caused by someone throwing a knife at him and missing his eye by only inches. On his chest there are the scars of the swords and bullets mentioned earlier, as well as a stake just under his heart, the person hesitating at the last moment, giving Matthias a chance to start moving, though he still wasn't quite fast enough. There are few scars on his legs, those mostly from normal everyday accidents, banging against a coffee table, falling on a jagged rock, stuff like that.
Other information: Matthias's abilities are still developing. Aside from the shockwave and the summoning, Matthias's body also heals itself, this takes a few minutes, sometimes longer, depending on the extent of damage. If he is too badly injured, he either would have to heal over night, or feed to heal faster. He also picked up a trait from the gunsman who taught him how to shoot. By rolling a bullet over his fingers, back and forth, he can hypnotize someone, helping them recall past memories. This does not always work, for if the person suffered trauma to the head, the memories could be permanently lost.
Matthias picked this up from the man that taught him how to shoot, and the man who gave him the pair of colt .45 revolvers with sandalwood grips that he wears to this day.
I do not aim with my hand, he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I aim with my eye.
I do not shoot with my hand, he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I shoot with my mind.
I do not kill with my gun, he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father. I kill with my heart.
I wish to state that I do not claim the above statement as my own, it is from the Stephen King series, "The Dark Tower".
