Matt Rhodes is a character role-played by curvyelephant.
Matt Dark-Rhodes (né Rhodes) is the Undersheriff for the Blaine County Sheriff's Office, Badge #320.
Rhodes is a 30-year-old caucasian male with scruffy blonde hair. He is widely regarded as one of the best drivers and leaders in the PD. Despite his relative newness to the PD, he is highly respected as a leader and role model to new officers.
Rhodes values honesty, even from criminals: He's willing to work with people who can admit they're at fault. But he is strict and he will fine anyone, even if they're just driving 1mph over the speed limit. He is a self-proclaimed "petty bitch" and till today hasn't lost a pettiness war.
Despite the BCSO having a reputation for incredibly bad drivers, Rhodes breaks the mold; regarded by some as one of the best drivers throughout all three departments.
With his formal schooling (and personal studies since), Rhodes has a strong understanding of case law; to the point where the LSPD Chief of Police, Bobby Smith's feedback on him during academy was, "He [Matt] was a lawyer, now he's a cop. He's a lawyer cop; he can fight the lawyers in Mission Row."
Before joining the police force, Rhodes was the owner of the Recycling Center; the only source of materials in the city at that time. Despite being a civilian, Rhodes always found himself in trouble with some of the most high-profile criminals of Los Santos. He became extremely paranoid, as multiple threats on his life would be made daily.
Rhodes cares about the environment, he's always been passionate about clean living, and recycling. He only drives electric or hybrid cars, unless he's on duty. He is best friends with Tessa Lamb, who also worked closely with him at the Recycling Center. After the Recycling Center closed down, he left the city for several months to concentrate on various school studies, including "Public Interest" and "Criminal Law".
The Harth Family
Rhodes is particularly fearful of the remaining "Harth" siblings, Jacob Harth and Zelda Harth, as he was partly responsible for the death of their eldest brother, Simon Harth. Rhodes does not know if the two Harth siblings are aware of his connection to Simon's death, nor if they are as dangerous as their late brother.
Rhodes' first introduction to Zelda came several months after Simon's death. Rhodes was responding to a situation in which a man had been stabbed by a young blonde female in Legion Square. He noticed Zelda lurking in the vicinity, and detained her for questioning; connecting her physical likeness and last name to both Jacob and Simon. He confiscated the weapon from Zelda; taking note that it was the same type of dagger that Simon had used on him when Simon had kidnapped and stabbed him.
