Matthew is a Crusader of the light and honorbound to protect the El shard of light. He uses a special method of sword and shield combat that no other character in the game uses but he can also use two handed swords such as the ones Elsword and Elesis use. However Matthew is not only a tank but he is also capable of healing himself and others. Matthew wears special partial plate partial chain armor that is enchanted to increase his defense by even greater amounts but it doesn’t stop there as he has a special Awakening system called Righteousness. His Righteousness powers up his enchanted armor to give a chance to absorb more damage blind enemies and even shoot rays of light at them in addition to the original awakening abilities as well as increasing his healing range and power.
