Matei Robert Dalca was born in Brașov, Romania as the eldest son of Neculai and Tatiana Dalca. Two years later they had a second son named Alexandru and then a year later a daughter named Silvia. Both of Matei's parents wanted out of the current communist Romania and they wanted to let their children live better lives away from the country. While Tatiana was pregnant with Silvia, the couple began to make plans to leave the country, but they weren't sure where to go. A year after Silvia's birth in 1987, the Dalca family packed their belongings and left to live in the United States. At first, they lived in Washington, D.C. until they were able to decide upon somewhere else to live. After a year of living in the capital, the family finally made one final move to Miduna Beach on the other side of the country. A year after living in Miduna Beach, they had their fourth child Ramona.
Matei was four years old when he left Romania, so he doesn't remember much about his life there. He has a few, fading memories, but nothing really. Although his family did move to the United States, they didn't really focus on learning much English. They only ever spoke Romanian in the household and Matei never really started to learn English until he had to begin attending school. He had learned some over the year he had lived in the United States, but not much of it made sense to him. It took him a while to really and truly understand the language. It was also easier for him to learn as he was still young and children are easily able to learn languages compared to adults. Even so, he would sometimes accidentally mix Romanian and English words when speaking to people and people would have to tell him that he was mixing the two languages. As he got older and became a teenager, he didn't do this nearly as much, although he would sometimes slip up and still sometimes does today.
When Matei was starting school, a few other students were confused on how to pronounce his name, although it was rather easy pronunciation. A few others also simply started calling him Mat but without the accent in his name. He never really minded being called Mat, and got used to it very quickly. His family still called him Matei at home. School was fine for Matei as a child. He easily made friends with other people in his classes. He sometimes didn't do too well in his classes and almost had to repeat the fifth grade, but instead just had to do summer school and move on to the sixth grade afterwards.
i just realized i forgot to write about his parents divorcing SO WRITE THAT HERE SOMEWHERE KTHXBAI
Once high school began, Matei was a bit overwhelmed by the size of the school and all the people in it. He slowly started to fit in again as he still had his friends with him. He started trying to do more in high school, so he played on the JV football and soccer teams. He also mainly did this so he could feel like any other person in high school. Most of the time he was stuck on the sidelines though as there were much better players on the teams than him. During his tenth grade year, he was able to join the varsity soccer team. After that year though, he quit sports entirely after some complications with his family and falling behind in his classes. Half-way through his junior year, he practically gave up on school and was only there to graduate and probably go off to college.
During the summer before his eleventh grade year, AND THEN WRITE MORE SHIT YAY BYE GOTTA SHOWER AND STUDY FOR EXAM YAY I CANT BELIEVE I ACTUALLY WROTE WORDS FOR THIS HISTORY LMAO BYE

Alexandru Dalca is Mat’s younger brother. He usually goes by the name Alex. Alex and Mat grew up very close, always being mean to their younger sisters when they were young. They would often steal their sisters’ dolls and toys and either break them or hide them. Alex and Mat are/were terrible people. Anyway, when Alex found out about Mat and Joseph, he started joking around about Mat being a fag and trying to mess with him. He didn’t realize he was actually hurting his brother by doing this all the time. When Alex was in his late twenties, he realized how he had wronged his brother and hadn’t helped him during a hard time in his life. Alex was also surprised that Mat had a girlfriend at the time, and asked him if Joseph was just a phase. Mat tried to explain, but Alex never quite understood because he believed people were either interested in only men or only women. He’s tried over the years to understand better though.
Silvia Dalca is Mat’s younger sister. She never really got along with Mat, but that was mostly because as children, Mat and Alex would mess around with Silvia all the time. As they got older, Silvia and Mat were constantly arguing and fighting about really anything under the sun. One time they argued for days about how Mat was five minutes late to picking Silvia up from volleyball practice. Of course, he was with his friend Joseph and didn’t realize the time. He was always apologizing about it, but she would have none of that. Once Mat was constantly being punished for being with Joseph, Silvia said nothing except that it was karma. Mat and Silvia have never been on good terms since and rarely ever talk to one another. Whenever Mat comes to visit for family events, the two maybe say hi to each other and don’t say another single word.
Ramona Dalca-McShane is Mat’s youngest sister. She was the only one of the Dalca children to be born in the US and never had to go through immigration like the rest of her family. Ramona was only three when their parents divorced and had no idea what was happening. She grew up fine with it all though because she always able to see both her parents. Ramona was constantly influenced by her older sister that she needed to dislike her older brothers. Silvia always told her about how mean they both were and how they didn’t deserve any kindness from either of them. As Ramona grew older, she began to get along with her older brothers, which slightly annoyed Silvia. Ramona also seems to be the only one who understands Mat. She understands how he can like more than just one gender, and Mat is always very appreciative of that.

Melina, Helen and Adam Dalca are Mat's sister-in-law, niece and nephew by his brother Alex. Melina and Alex married a few years ago when they found out Melina was pregnant. Helen is about five years old and Adam is around two. Mat often goes over to his brother's place to see his niece and nephew. Mat also has a bunch of random pictures of the two because Alex keeps giving him more and more pictures and Mat doesn't know what to do with them all. He has a few in his wallet because he might as well.
Jett Holtzer is Mat’s current boyfriend. They began dating on New Year’s Eve. For about a month, the two had been hanging out a lot and going on little dates together. They’d also been making out a lot too. Mat decided to ask him out on New Year’s Eve and Jett said yes, obviously. Mat doesn’t know about it, but Jett is actually really against people who are sexually interested in more than one gender. Jett is completely gay and only interested in men while Mat is interested in all the genders. Jett knows this and is sometimes upset about it. He’ll sometimes joke with Mat about how he’s going to cheat on him, and Mat always just rolls his eyes at him and moves on with life, not thinking much about Jett’s jokes.
so im thinking i kind of want him to have like one or two connections before i make him and see if anyone is interested in a plot or smthn with him like idk what rn. i might just like list a few connection idea things like "dis is his friend" or 'dis is an enemy" or watev and if someone already has a character that could fit the connection, we can just pretend they already know each other. that would be awesome. im gonna probably start bothering ppl sorry not sorry
