Decorated for his heroic actions during the Siege of Du Khang, Colonel Matthews is a controversial figure. A Lieutenant during the Unification War, Matthews was a tank platoon commander whose unit assaulted a Buddhist temple occupied by Independent Faction infantry during the siege, routing the 57th Overlanders and ultimately forcing a general evacuation offworld.
The fate of many wounded Browncoat prisoners left in the temple during the assault, which included rollers and seeker drones has clouded his reputation, but only among those with independent sympathies.
Matthews translated his military reputation into a successful cortex career. He and Samara Salisbury are currently dating.
