Book Main Characters - Matty
BMS Summer Reading Assignment - Adriano Lopez
Matty is one of the protagonists in this story. He is considered to be a young adult - not a boy but not yet a grown man. Matty arrived at the Village at a young age and became the village messenger. Matty was a good messenger because he has not been warned by the Forest yet. Matty possessed a gift which he would discover as he grew older and wiser. Matty came to the Village when he was younger. He stumbled upon the village and was welcome there with open arms. Matty had a gift that he did not know of until close to the end of the book. The gift was that he could heal things. This is why, towards the end of the book, his name was changed to the Healer.
