Mathias calls Penny, informing her they "found it". ("Live Together, Die Alone")

Mathias is one of the staff who manned Penelope Widmore's tracking station. He speaks Portuguese.

Mathias was playing chess with Henrik in the tracking station when their computer started beeping. Henrik then typed something into the computer, while Mathias called Penny, speaking English. He reported to her about an electromagnetic anomaly, informing her, "I think we found it." ("Live Together, Die Alone")


  • Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse mentioned Mathias' physical likeness to Jack in a commentary, and stated they cast the actor who "did not look like Matthew Fox." ("There's No Place Like Home, Part 2")
  • Mathias, as well as Henrik, seem to be borne from a Norwegian environment, instead of a Portuguese or Brazilian one.
