ARE YOU OVER THE AGE OF 18? Hell yeah!
CHARACTERS PLAYED: N/A(
NAME: Matt Murdock
PREFERRED JOURNAL: fightlikehell AKA this one
CANON: Netflix Daredevil (MCU)
CANON POINT: The end of season 1, after his time spent in Eudio.
AGE: While never specifically mentioned in canon, approx. 30
BACKGROUND: Please to meet you, hope you guessed my name.
WISH: Matt Murdock's life has been full of hard starts and stops when it comes to people close to him. He had a nurturing and loving father that was taken from him early in life. He never knew his mother and was raised in an orphanage. His very first real relationship ended up being with an emotionally unstable and deadly assassin that disappeared too soon. In Eudio Matt met and fell in love with Natasha Romanoff. He wants to stay with her and build a life with her while protecting Hell's Kitchen from crime and corruption. Both of them have equal standing as his wish and he will gladly put his whole heart and self into generating positive energy to obtain them.
FIT: Intimate actions are not so difficult when your world relies on touch (along with smell and sound). Matt will be offering up a hand to hold. Platonic embraces and cuddles too. Acts of kindness and charity will be fulfilled through his faith. It doesn't seem like a stretch for him to offer up mentoring. He is a lawyer and canonly offers up council in exchange for pies and fruits. What's important is doing the right thing.
CONSENT: The only time Matt will ever compromise the conditions of Cuddle City would be to defend people who are wronged. This would never be a sexual assault, just a physical altercation with no result in death.
POWERS/ABILITIES: The chemical spill that took Matt's sight as a child also gave him super heightened senses. He can hear sounds as soft as heartbeats to tell when someone's anxious or lying. He can smell as good as a dog picking out what people have eaten or where they've been based on odors. He's able to catch micro-nuances in taste to differentiate what ingredients in foods. His skin is also sensitive, he'd much prefer silk sheets to cotton or poly fiber. All of these senses paired with a keen detective mind he would be attuned to the needs of others being able to feel out a person's limits in comfort by their heart rate.
One and two.
CRAU: Matt Murdock's time in Eudio was spent mostly as a civilian. There were no opportunities to brawl in the streets as a vigilante so he set up a branch of Nelson and Murdock and with limited success tried to live the life as a normal, blind lawyer. His service to Hell's Kitchen would be through intimacy. From these jaunts he met Natasha Romanoff and fell in love with her. So much so that he told her about his powers and his dual life as Daredevil. At the time it was received as a huge deception and betrayal of trust. Eventually, they came to terms and he knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. However long that might be for an agent of SHIELD and the Devil of Hell's Kitchen.
In Eudio, Matt also made the acquaintance of Danny Rand, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. He will come into Cuddle City remembering them. Any chance at meeting any of these other hometown heroes will be handled without assuming they are they very same he had met before. He will remember that Jessica is not friendly and very mistrusting. Danny will stand out in his mind as a very good-natured and free spirit. Luke will be recalled as reserved and unbreakable. They never went into detail exactly what any of them are capable of or what kind of heroic acts they've got themselves into.
Previous experiences in a world that has multiple realities will give Matt a greater understanding and acceptance that there are many things beyond his understanding or control. He won't ever assume people are the same as he remembers them from previous times.
ANYTHING ELSE? By the mod's good graces, should Matt Murdock be allowed to serve as an agent of intimacy and good feels in Cuddle City he will not have his red Daredevil suit because he's popped from one cuddle puddle to the next. ...yet.
A little planning, a little preparation and a little prayer and Matt is ready. He shoots a text to Verity. Playing it cool and casual at first with Hey. Happy New Year's Eve! Doing anything tonight? Maybe he's jumping the gun but there's a good feeling in his gut. Already dressed, and already on his way.
Since he's going to be in Nexus for awhile, Matt Murdock is working on finding the essentials. A church, a gym and recreational pursuits he never quite was able to get around to without impeding into his late night jaunts incognito. A gym is in order. And all he really asks for is that there be boxing bags and some quiet. Taking in the newest space he pauses and catches the tells of someone familiar. His recollection is not always so keen for someone he's only met once but this particular person...

CHARACTERS PLAYED: None.
NAME: Matthew Murdock
CANON: Daredevil the Netflix Original Series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
AGE: approx. 30
CANON POINT: Post season 1.
BACKGROUND: Get up, Matty. It's time to get to work.
INCENTIVE/FIT: Matt Murdock chose to be a vigilante to protect his neighborhood from corruption when the law wasn't enough. He wants to save the innocent people of Hell's Kitchen at any cost. It is no stretch to see that he would strike up a bargain to ensure that his home and work family (Karen Page and Foggy Nelson) have full protection if he could do something within his power.
It isn't strange for Matt to have physical contact with another person day to day. Walking around in daylight he sometimes grips another person's arm for guidance. Sexual intimacy is something he'll be more selective about as a Catholic and as a man with a secret. He'll want to fulfill his requirement but also keep a degree of control and restraint so that it isn't sexual deviance. Confession is an option if he falls short of his personal expectation.
Network + Action
Matt's heightened senses give him a collective perception of people and things around him that compensate for his lack of vision. I have a post in his journal for characters to respond to if they wish to have him pick up details about them.
