Matías LaFontaine is the brother of Jade LaFontaine and also one of the main antagonists in the series. Despite being her brother, he is always fighting with his sister Jade, but deep inside, they still love each other. Their family used to be very rich until their company went down and their money were gone, thus he didn't have a home and was forced to live in his car. He was living in the Castillos' house, without Germán, or anybody else knowing it, except for Jade.

In Season 2, he and Jade still want to steal Germán's money, because they didn't have a home, so they hired Esmeralda to pretend to be in love with Germán, marry him and steal his money.

His personality seems to be changed as well, and he seems to be a better person.
