Matthew "Matt" Thorsen is the representative and descendant of the Norse god Thor, destined to fight the Midgard Serpent in Ragnarök. Because of this he possesses the ability to wield Thor's hammer in both a physical and magical sense, an ability he struggles to control.
Matt is level headed, friendly and a natural leader. Being the son of the sheriff, Matt has a strong sense of justice. He was taught to be a team player but also has a rebellious side to him, choosing wrestling and boxing over the normal team sports his family plays.
At home, Matt only came up to his brothers' shoulders. But he was the tallest kid in the eighth grade in Loki's Wolves.
Matt's regular family consists of his parents and his two older brothers, Jake and Josh. Matt is decently close with his family despite their usual tough love approach. In the past Matt has had a very close relationship with his grandfather, though the relationship become quickly strained after Matt is named Thor's representative and it's revealed that the two have very different goals for the future of the world.
