</shameless self promoting><-HTML humor. Bio The backstory for Matteo is rather extensive and not quite fleshed out. Here's the short version.
Matteo is part of an ancient race that had the ability to become immortal through a ritual that would make people immune to aging, resilient to disease(but not completely immune), and give increased but no super human strength speed and stamina. is people were wiped out by invaders and he fled before being able to receive immortality. He spent years searching for it and was able to obtain it, but about 30 years later than was normal to where he had reached the age of 50 before immortalizing. It was after this time Matteo traveled and studied to be an apothecary and an expert martial artist. He also trained to be an assassin. Being immortal meant he had many men's lifetimes to study and hone his skills.
The most notable powers Matteo his are that of his smoke abilities. Using his own blood as a foundation, Matteo materializes blades from crimson smoke. This allows him to materialize and dematerialize his "Blood letters" instantly, though if done too frequently, he experiences the symptoms of blood loss. His other smoke ability is called "scent intoxication" where he is able to put anyone who inhales it into a drunken stupor. Matteo is a main character in the comic and short story series Witching Hour
In this series Matteo is portrayed more as a good guy, though it is explained that he had a complicated past where this wasn't always the case. In this series Matteo has a runin with a nasty beast plaguing the city he was residing and employed in simply known as Plague
who after an intense battle infected Matteo with the plague. The reaction with Matteo's body turned the plague into another form of smoke ability. This new ability appeared as varying degrees of black or grey smoke that had varying degrees of effects on people. In its most intense form it infected people with the plague and they would most likely die of the disease as it was resistant to medications. In its slighter form it would cause irreversible psychosis of the mind. This was a trait Matteo in his lighter years rarely used, but was a favorite of his in what was known as The Age of Malice
where once again Matteo fell from the path of good and helping others to pursue more selfish endeavors through cruel yet effective tactics. It wasn't until the help of an old friend
that he found his way back from these dark pitiful times and repented for his evil ways by once again being an apothecary to the poor and weak, and an assassin of those who would do harm to good folk.
And yes that's the short version. XD
