Mathias Shaw is the head of the organization known as SI:7, the agency of intelligence for the city of Stormwind, and in fact much of the Alliance. From his base of operations in the barracks of Old Town, he coordinates reconnaissance efforts for many agents of the Alliance regarding matters as far apart as the Defias Brotherhood to the Undead Scourge. Shaw is also a master of stealth and infiltration tactics himself, and specializes in operations involving the rogues in the employ of the Alliance. He is also leader of the Stormwind Assassins. Shaw was a childhood friend of Edwin VanCleef, and personally trained him as a rogue.

Mathias Shaw is a young man to lead such a powerful organization, but the 33-year-old isn’t daunted. His mother was a First Finger assassin who died on the job when he was 4 years old. He grew up at Grandmother Pathonia’s knee, as the founder of the guild did not see fit to lie to him about her death or his family’s business. He was the youngest member of the guild when his grandmother made him a Fourth Finger at 10, and he worked his way up slowly, spending much more time in the various levels than most. This worked very well for him, as he knows intimately what is done at every level, and what is needed in new recruits. When his grandmother passed control to him on his 30th birthday, choosing to retire instead of die and leave things in disarray for him, he eagerly took the reins. He attempted to make improvements on her designs, but after a couple of months finally had to accept that her design was flawless, and he simply needed to run the already well-oiled machine. He has deep brown eyes and is diminutive, very unassuming for a guild leader of assassins. His first kill was the target his mother had failed to eliminate.[citation needed]
