Tera, I'm sure you saw me huge post for Matsu on Cirrus's art Here's my request of him, with all the same info!
Nation: Born and raised in the Fire Nation.
Bender: Matsu is a semi experienced fire bender who is good enough to be in the ranks of the Fire Nation army.
Appearance: Matsu has black hair that falls to his shoulders and it is usually unkempt because of his lack of attention to it. He has golden brown eyes and pleasant facial features, giving him the appearance of a nice person (Not that he isn’t). Because of this people are sometimes surprised when they find out he was a soldier. Matsu is of average height, around 5’8 and of good physique because of his years of training in the army. After an accident in battle he lost his right arm though. He wears average Earth Kingdom clothing that is dirty and tattered his shoes are also worn thin. He received the clothing and shoes from the Earth Kingdom family who took him in, but he has not had the chance to acquire anymore clothing. Matsu has a hand held dagger hidden with him that belonged to his brother, he is learning how to use it with his left hand.
Personality: Matsu is a shy and quiet man who prefers not to speak to others. He is not rude just quiet. He is however open to family and friends.
History: Matsu was born in a large city into the Fire Nation. His parents were jewelers and him and his older brother lived in relative comfort because of their business. His mother was a firebender and would frequently use her skills in helping the family business. His older brother, Shanju , was skilled in the martial arts and because his parents could not afford to send Matsu to the school also Shanju would personally teach Matsu. Matsu had little interest in joining the army even though he had the potential with his skills in fighting with or without his bending ability. One day when a member of the royal family entered the shop to purchase some jewelry is loyalty was renewed and he decided when he was older he would join the fire nation army. Shortly before his 16th birthday Matu’s brother died of an illness. His family was heartbroken and Matsu was crushed because he idolized his brother. His resolve to join the army was confirmed when he found out his brother had been one out of many that had died due to the Earth Kingdom. Earth kingdom troops had poisoned food that had was exported from the island ports to the fire nation. Matsu trained harder and soon he enlisted in the army. At twenty Matsu met the love of his life, Kauri. He was about to propose but the proposal didn’t receive the chance to happen as Matsu was deported to fight against a rebel group of Earthbenders who didn’t seem to enjoy the peace that had been uneasily put in place after the war. During the battle he was pinned by a boulder and his right arm was wrenched from his body. His comrades, believing he was dead, left him. Matsu was saved by the stubbornness by the young lady Song, who had talked another family into sheltering him and helping him heal. Matsu was unconscious for several days and when he awoke he was with this strange family in the Earth Kingdom. He stayed with them for only a month maximum before rumors starting going around in the nearest village that he was a firebender spy. Fearing for his life he fled towards Ba Sing Se, even further away from his home. Along the way he is learning how to cope with the loss of his right limb, which is why he is usually in a state of uncleanlyness, explaining why his hair is usually tangled and not in the traditional firenation top knot. Along with learning how to cope with daily things he is also trying to learn how to fight again and maybe one day firebend again. Hearing about the growing new Lotus City he altered his course and headed there.
