Manners, manners, then burn their bloodydamn house to the ground.
— Red Rising, Chapter 15

Matteo, a Pink, is one of the people who helped with Darrow's transformation into a Gold. He was in charge of teaching Darrow the culture and manners of the Golds, as well as changing his outward appearance to match Darrow's semblance of being a Gold.

He used to be a Rose of the Garden.


Matteo is described to be a "tall wisp of a Pink with long limbs and a lean, beautiful face." His gentle features include an angular nose, rose-quartz eyes, dark honey skin, and dusky hair with gentle curls and a blue sheen. He has impeccable manners and is really graceful. He has a penchant for wearing gloves and sniffing at even the smallest bit of dirt.



Matteo is married to Regulus ag Sun, one of the Sons of Ares.
