  • Character Traits

    Character Traits
    Easy Going; Intelligent; Callousness; Practical; Humble; Loyal and supportive

    General Personality
    Can be adventurous but is sensible when taking risks.  He gets all the facts and information needed before making a decision (investigative nature).  He also learns a lot from just being quiet, watching and listening to what is going and only steps in when he sees the need to or someone is in danger/trouble.  Matt is courteous and respectful to most people. Is a bit of a ladies' man.

    He believes in justice and doesn't like those who take advantage of those in less fortunate circumstances.

    Even though he has been married, he has never been in love - a fact he realised soon after his marriage to Louisa, when he found out that she was not what she claimed she was.  From this experience he has learnt to be more cautious where is heart is concerned and not to be easily taken in by a woman who pushes all the right buttons (for him) and/or uses her charms to get what she wants.

    Negative traits are that he can be intolerant and callous at times (depending on the situation and person).  Due to the nature of his work and his past he has learnt to hide his true emotions when needed.

  • Timeline

    January 1840 - September 1858

    Born the eldest of five children to Charles and Rebecca Wentworth.  His father worked as aide to a number of senators and was considered an important man to know if you want to get ahead in Washington.   His childhood was uneventful. Matt's father wanted him to go to Yale to become a lawyer and as dutiful son he did so.

    September 1858 - May 1861

    Attends Yale Law School (does not graduate in an act of defiance against his father).  He knew after the first semester of law school that it was not what he wanted to do.  After living a secluded life in Washington, college had opened his eyes to other possibilities.  He tries on numerous occasions to convince his father to let him travel so that he could work out what he wanted from life but his father is adamant that he stay in school.

    May 1861 - August 1865

    Seeing an opportunity to get out and see the world, he leaves school to join the US (Union) Army to fight in The Civil War.  Due to his college education, he becomes a junior Lieutenant and later a Captain.  It was also during this time that he starts to develop an interest in investing and buying land and hotels.

    September 1863 - April 1865

    Marries Louisa, who is eventually killed by the wife of one of her lovers.  The marriage was over long before the time of her death, which occurs while he is at the Battle of Appomattox Station.

    August 1865

    Joins the newly formed Secret Service (Treasury Department) in combating counterfeit U.S. currency.  Later, he became involves in investigating federal crimes.  He now uses his business interests as means of gaining access to those who have come under suspicion in order to gather evidence to convict them.

    Present 1875

    Has been sent to Kalispell to keep a watch (as well as being a contact for other operatives that may be in the area) and gather any evidence to convict those who may be behind a number of suspicious activities in the area over the last few years.  Buying the hotel presented a golden opportunity to get into the town and the community.
