Who am I? Just a conscience!
Hey, howdy, hey! The name's MAGGIE, and I wished upon a star from ADS. My other imaginary friends include TRIPLETS & CO. MATEO and I are so very eager to join the Worlds of Disney circle of life!
Character name: Mateo de Alva
Movie: Elena of Avalor
Custom title: Keeper of the Codex Maru
Why: He just impressed me from my first viewing and I know the site could use some good magical help and I think pitting Mateo against the evil magic doers will be interesting for the uncertainty inherent, though he is also competent as shown.
and I love his tamborita wand
Character appearance (try to get at least 2 or 3 sentences for each section)
Hair description: Thick brown. Not exactly messy but combed as much as possible with its lay. A bang section inevitably falling almost to in his face.
Facial description/mood/expressions: With a long, angular face, Mateo could almost come off as serious if not for his expressions. At times nervousness or unsurety can be seen on his face but determination when he seems to know what he's doing and most always a smile.
Clothing style: Brown breeches and darker brown boots, a white undershirt with green vest over, purple belt and red scarf make up Mateo's normal wear, or similar shades. Since being promoted to Royal Wizard, he also now wears his grandfather's red Royal Wizard robes embroidered with gold, made his own a bit with a colorful belt Elena gave him to help him "fit into it".
Body build: Slender but still on the short side, this is mostly due to Mateo's young age but helps with the underestimated appearance he gives off. It gives him a wiry sort of speed though to bolt down corridors with.
Any unique traits (optional): His magical abilities, though this is from the knowledge of spells more than speciality about him, though as a Royal Wizard he alone holds special gifts such as getting answers from his grandfather's passed down spell book.
Kindhearted and loyal, Mateo seemed destined to make Royal Wizard of Avalor someday after his grandfather off of more than just legacy. Possessing many of the traits that got his grandfather elected to the position above Fiero even he is also humble and selfless. Avalor and the royal family's needs always come first and though he arguably thinks too little of his own abilities and magic at times, Mateo will never be given to showing off or bragging though he's competent enough to be able to to such. Clever and determined, Mateo is able to think his and his friend's way out of trouble just as easily as he can use his magic to do such. Of course he's still given to clumsy mishaps that hinder his reputation but they don't get too much in the way when it counts.
Original character analysis (In your own words and please be thorough)
When Mateo was born, the kingdom of Avalor was in dire straits, still ruled by the evil sorceress, Shuriki, and his grandfather, Alakazar, off safe guarding the Amulet of Avalor, as it would come to be called.
The young boy kept at home most of the time, due in part to his parent's concerns and the normal dangers inherent in Shuriki's rule, but also as a descendent of Alakazar it was feared the sorceress may try to harm him or them personally, so they impressed upon the boy that he must not spill that bit of information at any cost. They would probably have felt more relieved if Mateo not taken any interest in magic at all, but of course that was a hard ask of the boy who looked up to Alakazar so, off of mostly legend with his being long from Avalor by the time Mateo came along.
From his earliest ability to semi-understand what was written there Mateo perused his grandfather's old books, kept in a hidden basement of his parent's small villa. Of course he kept the fact that he did such secret and from the others his age, such as Naomi Turner, when attending the local school.
To imagine being a wizard himself seemed a bit in the realm of impossible with Shuriki's reign. Mateo's own father, not pursuing magic, was killed in an accident that may or may not have targeted him specifically for his own lineage.
Mateo made extra sure to play it safe, since he alone was left to watch out for his mother, Rafa, now, but also kept at his studies of his grandfather's books to be prepared for trouble however he could. It paid off, but not how he expected it to.
It was young Princess Sofia of Enchancia who freed Elena, Alakazar evidently having hidden the amulet in Enchancia. Mateo provided his own aid freeing Isabel, Francisco and Luisa. With Elena's defeat of Shuriki, Avalor went back to the way it was suppose to be and Mateo was allowed to practice magic, encouraged even by Elena, and soon promoted to Royal Wizard despite his young age. Mateo even proved his worth same day as the ceremony by defeating an old enemy of has grandfather's and "Malvago", or evil wizard, Fiero.
Ambitions: Be as great a Royal Wizard as his grandfather. Keep Avalor safe. Make Elena and the Council proud. Help however he can currently in the park now too.
Strengths & abilities: His main one would be his abilities in magic, even when he doesn't recognize them fully. Having studiously taken in all he could of his grandfather', Alakazar, the former Royal Wizard of Avalor's, teaching and example in the years prior Princess Elena and the royal family's return, Mateo can recall more spells than he at times recalls he can and his bravery in the face of danger help him use them.
Flaws: A slight nervousness and low self esteem at times. Mateo is his own harshest critic, though he tries to keep it from interfering too much with what is called for. Also for all his great promise, he is still young and naive still at times and apt to mistakes.
Likes: Princess Elena, the royal family and Council of Avalor. His grandfather. His mother. His magical banjo staff. His grandfather's spell book. Peace.
Dislikes: Fiero. Shuriki. Crowds. Embarrassment. Outside criticism of his magic.
Fears: Shuriki. Anything happening to the royal family or Avalor in general. Magic beyond his own. The expectations placed on him in a way.
