Attack on Shoyul Ghoul
Matrim Cauthon was born in 978 NE, in Emond’s Field, Andor, to Abell and Natti Cauthon. Other than his parents, his family consists of two younger sisters, Bodewhin and Eldrin.
Most women find him appealing, with a wiry body and brown hair and eyes.
Dancing and flirting seem to be two of his favorite past times. He also has quite a bit of a gambling streak, and plays dice often. Many people who see him gambling declare that he seems to have the Dark One’s own luck. While in Emond’s Field his luck was average; he lost as much as he won. After the incident at Shadar Logoth, his luck became rather good. After he was Healed by the Aes Sedai in the White Tower, it became extraordinary.
Another major side to Mat is that of the prankster. In Emond’s Field, he was well known for his escapades.
