    Appearance:
    Standing at five feet, nine inches tall and weighing average for his height, Mathias has a trim build and appears in-shape. He has short, curly brown hair that he often frets about, and eyes that seem to be of the same shade.

    Mathias chooses to dress in more luxurious muggle clothes and wizarding robes, though he tends to only wear the latter on more formal occasions. He is left-handed.
    History:
    1856 | Mathias is born the first son and child to Mathias and Cassandra Beaumont at their home in Chambéry, France. His mother was fearful of motherhood, though her husband's affection towards her in the weeks following his birth was enough to soothe her. Mathias was often kept under the watch of a nurse most of the day. Within a month, the family packed up their things and moved to Brighton, England with hopes of starting a new life.

    1860 | On a family vacation to France, Mathias shows his first sign of magic. Excited to have a piece of the cake on the table, little Mathias makes it float towards him and the food eventually ends up covering his body. Later in the year, the first daughter in the house, Dorothee, is born.

    1862 | Francoise is born. Mathias is at the age where he takes much more of an interest in his new siblings, and he often asks to hold his new little sister. Extremely fascinated with the baby, he quickly becomes very protective of her—even around the nurse whose job it was to protect her.

    1864 | Mathias is kicked by a horse for the first time, starting the trend of all sorts of creatures disliking him. But really, those blasted horses at the worst.

    1866 | Mathias' sister, Oceane, is born, but his affection for his new sister doesn't bypass his love for Francoise.

    1868 | Mathias receives his acceptance letter to Hogwarts in the summer, and goes off to school in the fall. He is sorted into Ravenclaw upon arriving. He shows strength in Transfiguration and Charms, but tends to slack off in History of Magic. He isn't quick to make many friends due to his obvious prejudices, though he does find some in Slytherin house—specifically Upton Nott.

    1869 | When Mathias' little sister, Anais, is born, he fails to take much of an interest in her like he had his other younger sisters. He's far too busy worrying about himself to spend much time with her, though his affection for the two elder of the Beaumont daughters doesn't fade.

    1870 | Mathias adds Ghoul Studies, Ancient Runes, and Arithmacy to his class schedule. He gains a desire to become a curse-breaker after graduating Hogwarts, though hides this desire from his family out of a fear of rejection.

    1871 | Dorothee joins Mathias in Ravenclaw.

    1873 | Mathias takes his OWLs in the spring and gets satisfactory scores. He chooses to drop Astronomy, Ghoul Studies, Herbology, Potions, and History of Magic.

    1875 | Mathias takes his NEWTs and graduates from Hogwarts. He takes his desire to pursue a curse-breaking career to his father, who swiftly brushes off the idea with the explanation that "it's far too risky for a first and only son." Heartbroken, Mathias loses all ambition to pursue a career at all and resides to a life of leisure.

    1877 | The Beaumonts move to Hogsmeade and Mathias joins a few of the gentleman's clubs they have to offer. He takes up quidditch as a hobby, though frequently finds himself drowning in books in his family's library.

    1880 | Francoise marries Franklin Blankenship.

    1881 | Dorothee, the eldest Beaumont daughter, gets her shit together and marries gentleman Llewellyn Corfield.

    1883 | Mathias' father falls ill in the spring and passes away with his son at his side. While Mathias does inherit and becomes the Beaumont patriarch, he's heartbroken by the sudden loss of his father and falls into depression.

    1884 | Mathias finds love with Zephyra Zane, though their immaturity with relationships quickly proves to be their fatal flaw. They split late in the year before a courtship can even be secured, leaving Mathias heartbroken.

    1885 | Mathias begins to court February Lynch in a rebound relationship, though quickly finds that he would be unhappy with her as his wife. She's too much of a social climber and seems to care more about his bank account than him—at least in his eyes. He befriends Miss Rosalind Pendergast and quickly begins feeling more than friendship for her, causing him to find a way to sever his courtship with Miss Lynch. It soon becomes obvious that he and Miss Pendergast's feelings for one another bypass friendship, and they are engaged at the end of the year.

    1886 | After a criminal kidnaps Mathias' cousin from his home in Milford Haven, Wales and holds him ransom, Mathias flees to France in order to secure his safe return. In the meantime, his cousin's kidnapper sends a false letter to Mathias' fiancee that ends their engagement without Mathias' knowledge. Upon visiting his ex-fiancee in June with hopes of repairing their relationship, their engagement is reconciled and the two fall deeper in love. Mathias becomes aware of the past sexual violence against Miss Pendergast, and she becomes aware of his fragile heart. The wedding is set back on for the date of July 21, 1886.
    Personality:
    Introvert. Bookish. Obsessive. Insecure. Friendly. Blood purist. Affectionate. Unambitious. Sincere. Assumptive.
    Other Information:
    — Mathias' patronus is a snapping turtle.
    — Amortentia smells like new books and Rosie's hair.
    — His boggart is the corpses of his sisters.
