Bender type: Nonbender
Standing at 5'11, Matsuura stands at an average height. He has brown hair, pale skin, and brown eyes. Matsuura usually wears several metal armor plates on his legs and also on his arms and chest, the latter of which are concealed with the red and white robe that he usually is seen in.
Being raised in a strict and very disciplined environment, Matsuura valued organization and fidelity above all else. Even after he left his family and the military, he continued to be uptight and organized. Years of upbringing and army service turned him into a life-long military man. But despite this, he did not blindly trust authority, and believed that it should only be followed when it served the interests of the people. After he arrived in Republic City, Matsuura was disgusted by the high level of crime and the government's corruption, including its lack of concern about the many problems the city faced. He figured that something needed to be done, and outside of the law, if that was what it took. But, nonetheless, the man considered himself to be a soldier above all else.
Matsuura maintained a rugged sense of honor, being a soldier, and preferred to act diplomatically rather than kill, if that could be done in the given situation. However, that is not to say that he was a pacifist, as he was willing to kill anyone who got in the way if it was necessary, and was not the kind of person that would show mercy. He especially detested criminals and believed that they forfieted their rights when they started hurting innocent people, also subscribing to the idea of the strong needing to protect the weak. Matsuura also held a strong sense of fidelity and fealty, being fiercely loyal to his close friends, family members, and whatever organization he served.
Born to a middle class family in the Fire Nation, Matsuura was part of a military family that could trace its service to the Fire Nation Royal Family back several centuries, all the way back to the Hundred Year War. So not surprisingly, the young man was raised in a very disciplined, carefully regulated, and strict environment. The man's father expected his son to follow the family tradition and join the Fire Nation Army. As a result, Matsuura spent his youth training to perfection in different subjects, including swordsmanship, strategy and tactics, history, leadership, and others.
The young "cadet" (as his father frequently called him) was never asked what his opinion on the matter was. But nonetheless, Matsuura became the disciplined military man that his father wanted. However, he secretly had some disagreement with his father's views that he did his best to force onto his son.
He did not blindly trust authority, as his father did, and believed that the government should only be followed as long as it was serving the interests of the people. Matsuura did not have any problems with the Fire National Royal Family and served it by joining the Fire Nation Army at the age of seventeen. He further improved his swordsmanship and other combat skills while in the service.
But while stationed aboard a naval vessel as part of its army contingent, the young swordsman was able to travel the world and see several other places. Because of this, he realized that he did not want to spend his entire life in the military (as his father wanted him to) and did not renew his contract after it expired. With the skills he learned, Matsuura departed the Fire Nation to "see the world," as he put it. He signed up for the Citizenship Program of Republic City, seeing it as the quickest and easiest way to leave the country.
