Matthew is an applicant for the 287th Hunter Exam. He overhears the instruction that the Captain gives Gon and his friends at Dolle Harbor and follows them. On the way, they are stopped in a desolated alley by an old lady who asks them two dilemmatic quizzes which they have 5 seconds to answer.
Matthew promptly gives her an answer and in return she shows him a wrong way, leading to him being attacked by beasts. Gon, Kurapika and Leorio on the other hand cannot give her any answer within the time limit, thus she shows them the right way, because not answering is the correct answer to the dilemmas.
- Matthew is his name in the 1999 anime adaptation. It does not appear in the manga or the 2011 series.
