Player Name



Mattie Richards


tech specialist


Hacker challenged: To test security you challenge it- like a competition. Hacking is like a competition to Mattie- a competition to win or die. There isn't a challenge Mattie won't take up to win. Losing is a non-option to this competitive spirit.

Info Hound: With an unquenchable thirst for knowledge about the most mundane things, Mattie won't leave well enough alone until taking it apart and putting it back together or prodding it with the eraser side of a pencil has made a tiny dent into the knowledge search. Usually this brings Mattie into bad situations with less than friendly creatures that, for a weird reason, don't actually LIKE being poked by erasers until awakened. Imagine that.

Tech Junkie: Yes. It's an addiction, maybe not as bad as others, as "practice makes perfect". But still, there is nothing that will separate Mattie from visible technology objects. Somewhat intelligent phones, mainframes, ship computers, malicious robots, anything with a capacitor and silicon has Mattie running and occupied for a while. But take away the hacker's own computers without substituting them with other tech will send Mattie immediately into the downward spiral of withdrawal symptoms.

Personal History

Mattie was raised by two soldiers with the rest of her extended family being army soldiers as well. Her father, never having expected his third to be a girl, raised Mattie like her brothers, giving her the nickname Matt. He did his level best to convince her out of the whole "murky tech shit" and into government employment like her siblings. Through this, Mattie learned how to build and take apart a gun (while being taught how to fire it,) basic self defense, and how to identify various weapons and aircrafts apart. In their final effort, she learned how to pilot a chopper during college. After earning a degree in computer security, the family grasped that their lifestyle would never be the same, and stopped reaching out to her.
Years later, a friend with a less than golden reputation conned her into hacking a security system (that ended up being that of a Foundation Site) years later. Mattie, never one to let a chance to improve a system go by, joined up and did some major work on the system before going to another base.


She always wears a set of dog tags around her neck.
