Match was a sworn brother of the Black Company and one of its sergeants during the first chronicle.

The Black Company[]

Match was present during the events in Beryl. He survived the chaotic battle against the forvalaka in the Paper Tower. The Annalist Croaker implied that Match was the Company brother who killed the Syndic with the approval of the Captain and Elmo.

Match was later present with the main body of the Company in their serendipitous capture of Whisper's poorly-defended base camp hidden in the Forest of Cloud. He, Candy, and Carp were among the sergeants who rushed to examine the priceless trove of Whisper's secret war plans and signed orders. The Captain ordered Match to double the perimeter guard to ensure there would be plenty of warning if Whisper returned before they moved out.

Match's fate after this was not recorded in the Annals. However, as he was not among the 10 Black Company survivors of the Battle of the Barrowland about 15 years later, he is presumed to be deceased by the end of The White Rose.
