Mathias calls Penny, informing her they "found it". ("Live Together, Die Alone")

Mathias is one of the staff manning the tracking station in "Live Together, Die Alone", who speaks Portuguese.

Moments before their computer starts beeping, Mathias plays chess with Henrik. After the computer started to beep, while Henrik types something into the computer, Mathias calls Penelope Widmore, speaking English, and reporting to her about an electromagnetic anomaly, informing her, "I think we found it."


  • Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse mentioned the likeness in a commentary, and stated they cast the actor who "did not look like Matthew Fox."("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

  • Mathias is the Norwegian variant of Matthew. Mathias' name in Portuguese is Matias.
