Character Profile - Mathias Keane McPhee
Mathias Keane McPhee
Place of Origin: Aberfoyle, Scotland
Light ginger red hair slightly curly which likes to go a bit tousled, no matter how he tries to keep it under control. Piercing blue-green eyes. He has heterochromia which is where each eye has multiple colors – in his case, each has a different but nearly identical combination of blue, green, and gold. His facial features seem like he has a touch of fae in his bloodline. Has a deep baritone voice, and sharp cheekbones. He is tall and a well toned body, not overly bulky.
Those that know Mathias would say he was cheerful, lively and energetic. In any task he undertakes,he does it with enthusiasm and zeal. He has the ability to look at what might be a mundane task, and find the fun in it. At times it makes the more somber sort of person, shake their head at his perceptions, and some would just find him nonsensical.
Mathias had been told that from time to time, he’d just shrug and go about his work, barely able to keep himself from humming whilst on the bridge. He also has a rather vivid imagination, looking at things like they are works of art.
