Matin is a character first appearing in The Epic of Zektbach, making her pop'n music debut in pop'n music 16 PARTY♪. She is the positive half of Nox. She is very kind and loving due to her wealthy upbringing, but it has also made her somewhat naive. She wields the Trisagion and used it to fight Nox in the Holy War, before being stopped by A Milia.[3] Her full name is Matin Catorce (マタン カトルセ Matan Katoruse).


Matin has long platinum blonde hair with two light blue flowers on each side, and a gold piercing in her left ear. She wears a dress that consists of a black strapless top with a red gem in the center and a large light blue layered skirt, and blue fingerless gloves with black trimming.

このふたりはどっちも欠けてはいけないと思い、 お願いしてふたりとも描かせて頂きました。 スタッフの方々、私のワガママを聞いて下さってありがとうございました。

IIDXのムービーでは見ることのできない一面や姿をアニメーションならではで表現してみました。 動かしてみるとふたりの内面がよく現れたように思います。 IIDXで遊んだことがある方はポップンで! ポップンで初めての方はIIDXでも遊んでみて下さい~。 ふたりの間に何があるのか…あったのか…きっとまたゼクトバッハ叙事詩の世界が膨らむことと思います。
