The Forest is the borderline of Village. Matt was a messenger who passed through Forest to deliver news to other communities and from Christopher (aka Seer) to his daughter, Kira. Matt was also known for being the only one who knew the Forest well. Throughout Messenger, Forest had became increasing unnavigable, it had been reaching out and would kill people (ex.coiling vines around their feet). When Matt had died and restored peace in Village, the Forest returned to its normal state and was once again able to pass through.
