The Matheson Family is the protagonist group in Revolution.
Before The Blackout, they lived in an apartment with a balcony in suburban Chicago, Illinois. At some point, Miles Matheson joined the United States Marine Corps, following a family tradition. His grandfather had served in Korea, where he carved the handle of an ornate hunting knife; when Miles' father took it with him to Vietnam and came back safe, the knife became a sort of good luck charm.

- The family name Matheson could be a nod to the American science fiction author Richard Matheson, author of I Am Legend.
- The knife that was passed down to Miles greatly resembles a Ka-Bar combat knife, but with a custom-carved handle.
