Daredevil

History

Personality

On the surface, Matt Murdock is a sensible and mild-mannered defense attorney. He can be stubborn and a little prickly, but he has a powerful sense of empathy, an everyman's charm, and a wry, self-effacing wit. He is selective in taking on clients, but once he does, he zealously defends their interests. You could say the same about his friendships.

Below the surface, Matt is driven by bottomless grief, raging abandonment issues, and worlds of guilt. His accident gave him powerful new ways of making sense of the world, but it also drew a thin red line of division between himself and just about everyone in it. That secrecy and sense of isolation was reinforced by a series of staggering personal losses and some hard lessons imparted by his mentor Stick.

The product of a Catholic orphanage and a Jesuit education, Matt has a marytr's desire to solve the world's wrongs by his lonesome. He also has a tendency to push away those closest to him, whether to protect himself from abandonment or to protect others from the chaos and danger invited by his second life. A small but persistent band of friends and associates has repeatedly challenged that impulse. Results vary.

Matt's life is defined by a powerful sense of justice that drives him to protect those who can't protect themselves, whether it's in the courtroom or on the streets of New York. That drive often manifests itself as fury, and he's not always sure it's the righteous sort. 'Daredevil' has built a reputation as one of the city's more brutally effective vigilantes, and the psychic toll of that violence weighs heavily on him. He asks himself constantly whether he's gone too far, or not far enough.

He's courageous, and in his short career as a viglante has gained city-wide renown for death-defying feats. But for all that the papers call his red-clad alter-ego the "man without fear," Matt Murdock is full of them. Most of all, he's scared of letting the world, his dead father, God, and himself down.

RP Hooks

Lawyer for hire: In their short but eventful legal career, Matt Murdock and law partner Foggy Nelson have represented everyone from tenants facing eviction to people accused of capital crimes to multi-billion dollar corporations. Their small (but mighty!) firm could be especially helpful for mutants and metahumans navigating New York's new registration law.

A son of Hell's Kitchen: Matt is the product of one of New York's roughest neighborhoods, and he zealously defends it with both sides of his double life.

Anti-registration advocate: Have a bone to pick with metahumans, or with laws registering and regulating them? Matt's staked out a public position on the issue, and frequently appears on cable news arguing against New York's new registration law.

Enemies in high places: When Nelson & Murdock helped the Defenders bring down Wilson Fisk and stop his plans to remake Hell's Kitchen, a lot of luminaries of finance and city politics saw their careers take a hit. Some are sure to have long memories.

Thing about red, they can't tell how much you're bleeding.

Another man's evil does not make you good, Matthew.

— Father Paul Lantom

When I was a kid, before the accident, I'd lay awake at night listening to the sirens. I liked to put stories to them. Trying to figure out what they were for, ambulance or cops, robbery or fire. I don't know, just a stupid game. But after I lost my sight, after my abilities developed, I realized how many sirens there actually were, how much this city suffered every single night.

— Matt Murdock
