Due to an unknown scalp condition during childhood, Mathias was marked with dents and bald spots that taught him strong empathy for other people with problems, which later became beneficial to his writing. "I was terrified that the kids would find out that I had bald spots (they are not small), because they would undoubtedly heckle me for the rest of my life (so I thought).  I was unaware of hair gels or sprays that would help me to part my hair and cover the spots, so I used to sleep in certain positions at night to mold my hair, to press it into place.  For the most part I did okay.  The wind was my enemy.  I feared rain.  Didn’t go swimming.  Kids would try to mess up my hair and I’d have to fight them off for what would normally be a silly, unimportant thing."  This, among other things, began his reclusive lifestyle.

Mathias Nelson started writing in High School, due to general apathy for what was being taught. "I glanced at the teacher as he read it [my story] at his desk.  By the time he was done, hunched forward with his head in his hand and his mouth open like some idiot, he scowled and gave me this piercing, awestruck look, and it freaked me the hell out for a moment.  I quickly looked away, but couldn’t get the image out of my head.  That’s when I knew, when he looked at me like that, that something was going on."
