Mathieu

A reserved Animal Tamer of Le Cirque d'Ames

0 · 148 views · located in Earth

a character in “Le Cirque d'Ames”, as played by Luv-is-a-Bug

Description

Original Name: Mathieu Fremont

Performance Name: Mathieu refuses to go by anything but Mathieu. Not Matt, not Mathieu the Magnificent- just Mathieu.

Gender: Male

Age: 22

Circus Act: Animal charmer. Mathieu works primarily with the larger animals, notably Leon the Bengal Tiger, but has worked with almost every animal in Le Cirque d’Ames.

Personality: Mathieu is what most would call a “wandering soul”. Restless and pensive, Mathieu is constantly looking ahead, hating to dwell on the past. Due to his word travels as a child, he can cope with almost anything he encounters; it’s his tough past that haunts him. Still, he can’t help but hope that in one of the many cities in which Le Cirque d’Ames performs, he’ll find his mother sitting somewhere in the crowd, or maybe his father, come to apologize. Over time, he’s become good at hiding his hurt and disappointment, and his unfailing smile can deceive almost anyone. As friendly with people as he is, Mathieu’s deepest connections are with the animals he trains. Around them, he’s quiet and patient, the person he wishes he could be always.

History: Mathieu was born in Paris, France while his parents were on their way to the Eiffel Tower. Nice, huh? Knowing their son wasn’t due for another month, Mr. and Mrs. Fremont, who were frequent travelers, had decided to take one last week long trip before Mathieu was born. Of course, things don’t always go as planned, and his parents ended up staying in France another three months while their baby (sickly because of his early arrival) gained strength. When the doctors declared Mathieu strong enough to leave the hospital, he returned to the US with his parents. By the time Mathieu was eight, he’d been to fourteen countries and could speak four languages. The young boy was already quite the traveler, and seemed to have a special connection with the animals he encountered on his family’s trips. Then, the summer of his ninth birthday, Mathieu’s father discovered Mrs. Fremont had been cheating on him and filed for divorce. Mr. Fremont got custody of Mathieu, and the two moved to a small, desolate town in Washington. Devastated by his ex-wife’s betrayal, Mathieu’s father began drinking, sometimes beating Mathieu. Gone were the days of world travel, the exciting places and new experiences. Mathieu felt trapped in the small town, stifled by his father and cramped surroundings. So, on the day after his sixteenth birthday, he fled tiny house and set off to find his mother, who’d essentially dropped off the map after the divorce. Instead, Mathieu found Le Cirque d’Ames. The performers welcomed his with open arms, and though Mathieu appreciates their kindness, time has yet to heal his mental and physical wounds.

Crush: Not as of yet.

Boyfriend or girlfriend: Nope.

Appearance: Though hard circus work has added muscle to Mathieu’s lean frame, he’s still a pretty skinny guy, more wiry than truly muscular. This is due in part to his sickliness as a child, his early arrival resulting in a weak immune system and an underdeveloped body. Despite his lack of bulging biceps, Mathieu is still attractive, his olive skin tone and black-brown hair a perfect combination. His eyes, dark and brooding, seem to throw people though- a gloomy contrast to his bright smile.

So begins...
