Mathias couldn't avoid trouble as a kid. He resolved this by lying, even throughout the years, he still is somewhat skilled at it. Otherwise Mathias lived life like a normal civilian until he got out of Teachers College of Columbia University at the age 25 with a Ph. D in Clinical Therapy. Shortly after he was hired by a mental asylum, that was desperate for workers. He constantly heard the screams of mad men and the occasional bloody lunch room. He took leave and stayed at his home, completely alone. This led to him being able to keep extreme calm, as it was necessary when his leave ended.
Mathias found himself bored at his home and decided he needed a hobby, which he had taken up being a magician. He specialized in card tricks, and the extra money from street performances helped.
Mathias quit his job at the asylum, and quickly got another one. Mathias' new job proved to not be as profitable as his previous one, so he wrote a book about his time in the asylum. One part of the book described a man screaming about anomalous objects. The Foundation quickly sent a team after Mathias, and instead of giving him an amnestic, they decided he would be a worthy 'asset' of the work force. Mathias agreed deciding he was getting nowhere in his current point of life.
