He was a rather unfriendly warlock accompanying Scarlet Commander Marjhan while she engaged in discussion with members of the Brotherhood of the Light, a minor and more violent offshoot of the Argent Dawn. He tended to treat others with outright contempt and held a ridiculously high opinion of himself, even so far to the point of referring to himself in the third-person. Interestingly, the markings on his face were most commonly found on members of the Cult of the Damned.
Mataus was responsible for creating the Ice and Shadow Guard enchantments, which could be applied to leg or head equipment to provide a permanent 10 resistance to the item. Mataus would trade one for 10 and 30 gold.

He started the following quests:
- When alive
"What is it you want, lemming? Get out of my sight before you find out why I am known as the Wrathcaster."
- Mataus the Wrathcaster says: Your pain is my release.
- Many players find it humorous that despite his rude and violent text, his voice files reflect that of the jolliest male voice samples. "Hey there!" Have a good one!" And "Can I do something for you?" all in a chipper, happy voice are common. Whether this is a development oversight or an intentional joke remains unknown.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Now an undead guest target in Tyr's hand.
- Patch 1.11.0 (2006-06-20): Added.
