AppearanceMateus is short and stocky. He’s only about 5’6” and isn’t fat, but is pretty broad shouldered. He might like cooking food but he also like spending time at the gym, and it shows. He keeps his hair short and neat. His clothes, outside of school, are fairly neat. However, he may be a genius in the kitchen, he is also fairly sloppy when he’s cooking. His creative focus goes into the meal itself not into keeping his clothes or the kitchen clean.
HistoryTito Oliveira and his wife Helena were married for almost twenty two years. During their marriage they had three sons. Manoel, Marcos, and Mateus. Tito was a proud man. He may not have been the smartest but he worked hard. He was strict with the boys, not overly affectionate, but never abusive. He was a construction worker like his father before him, running a small company in Tidewater that had belonged to his family, for a few generations.
While their father considered education was second to hard work, none of those boys tried to do poorly in school. In their free time the young Oliveira boys spent a good deal of time at the construction sites. Their favorites were remodels and updates of houses after a couple moved out, because then they got to explore the rooms and see what kind of people had lived there. Though as they got older, it started to weigh on Matt what had happened to those people who’s houses he’d been in. When Manoel took his aptitude test it was hardly any surprise that he placed similarly to his father. Less surprising was when Marcos did as well.
Just before Marcos’s exam results come in, their mother got sick. And she didn’t get better. Mateus was fifteen when his mother passed. He missed her dearly, but the loss of his wife nearly killed his father. They had been married twenty two years. They were drafted almost as soon as they could be, and they had both been so pleased with their draft. His brothers took over the business for a time, while their father grieved, and when he was ready, he poured himself back into his work. Then almost a year to the day of the loss of his wife, Tito got a new letter stating he had been redrafted.
Mateus was sixteen when his new mother arrived. She was eighteen, fresh home from boarding school, and Mateus fell in love with her the minute he saw her. Unfortunately so did Marcos, only Marcos was less of a childhood crush and more problematic.
Then it was Mateus turn. And he was a surprise. When he got his results back he was a little shocked. He had done alright in school, not perfect grades, but not poor either. He had really tired to answer the aptitude test honestly, knowing how important it was. How could they have placed him so wrong. There was no chance that the son of a construction worker, with brothers who were also in construction should have been sent into the culinary field. But there it was. Plain as day on the letter from the trust. His brothers thought this was hilarious.
But he really liked it. And he was actually pretty good at it. Cooking was generally reserved for the sort of thing women learned, but someone had to run the kitchen in restaurants or in hotels. Women cooked in the home, but they weren’t professionals most times. He did very well in culinary school. His step-mother seemed to like not having to cook so much around the house, because Matt wanted to practice. He forced any number of experimental dishes on his family, and then started taking things to neighbors or taking them for college students in other programs to try. His father might have been disappointed in the career path his son ended up on, but the son really enjoyed it.
Mateus spent only a handful of months as the family embarrassment. Both of his brother’s had always had to be better than him. And along the lines they decided to disappoint their father more than Mateus had too.
Then Manoel’s wife turned him in after catching him in bed with another man. Mateus attended the execution of his brother. His father was so furious he could not attend, but Mateus thought that Manoel should have someone who had cared about him there. This was the first execution that Mateus would attend, but sadly not the last.
Marcos was executed less than six months later, after being caught with his father’s wife. Apparently the affair had been long standing. Mateus was questioned about his knowledge of the thing, but he genuinely did not know. Roselia was set to be executed the same week, but it was discovered she was pregnant, so her execution was stayed till she gave birth to a daughter, Maria.
Mateus attended both of those executions as well. The former with his father, and the latter with baby Maria. His father did not live to see Roselia’s execution. He had been so distraught over the loss of two of three children, the betrayal of his wife with his own son, and presumably the fact that he now had no one in the family to take over the business he had worked so hard for that he took his own life. This left Matt as Maria’s only living male relative.
He considered letting Maria go to the orphanage. She would have been adopted, probably quite quickly being in good health and a baby. Though she was a girl, so that might have slowed down her chances of being adopted now that girls didn’t get shipped off to boarding school so early. But then she was so small and helpless and she was the only family he had left.
Because he took on the added responsibility of taking care of Maria, Mateus was allowed to stay in his father’s home for the brief time before he will be drafted and would be given his own. He was also given a part time job, as a pizza delivery man, to make the money he needs for himself and Maria while he finishes culinary school. Because of the extreme duress of losing 4 family members in one year, some of his college got shifted a little, and he’s now just a bit behind. He’s working on catching up, but it will probably be a couple more years before he finishes. He recived a microchip in the last year. It's much more convenient, and he isn't doing anything he shouldn't for the government to want to track, so hes generally okay with it.
They currently have a live-in staying and helping, just till his draft is ready. He hopes that his new wife will tolerate Maria’s presence at least. Who doesn’t love a baby? Granted, with all of his family problems, Matt was only able to make three sponsorship appointments, so they might not get his bride quite right. One can still hope.
