Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Apostle Matthew is a Mormon priest in New Canaan in 2253.


Matthew is one of the two "sub-priests" under Jeremiah Rigdon. Matthew is the older of the two, being in his mid-forties. He is a friendly bald man who wears patchy pants and a gray t-shirt. Matthew believes in Jeremiah and supports him, but doesn't have much to say about the greater situation in New Canaan.[1]

Daily scheduleEdit

Matthew will spend his day in the church with Jeremiah and Apostle Jude. He can otherwise be found in the Apostles' place with Jude. Jude is married with two kids, but it is convenient for Matthew to live with them.[2]
