Matteo Cash is a humanoid magpie-jay, and is similar in appearance to an Aarakocra. He has no arms and no legs, but does possess wings. When Cash is nervous, his wings grow, which can be helpful in holding a bat. His blacklight appearance features gold accents, which distract him in his constant hunt for shiny things. Due to Cash’s status as a cross of a human and a bird, he is shorter than the average human. This height is sometimes jokingly referred to as “fun sized”, referencing Cash’s friendly nature. He can often be seen wearing shiny makeup and clothes he deems pretty. His fashion sense is immaculate, despite some difficulties in finding clothing that fits him.

Cash is known to get easily sidetracked. Conversations about one of his passions will often lead to an outburst about another. His greatest passion is astronomy. He loves the shininess of the stars, and frequently views them through his old brass telescope. Using this telescope, he will spend the times leading up to games considering Hermetic philosophy, leading to his pre-game ritual of “Hermetics”. As a philosopher and astronomer, Cash will often look at the stars and create his own constellations. His love of the stars also spreads to the rest of his life, as he is obsessed with shiny things, and often collects and wears any shiny things he can find.
