Eli Matchett is an eco-terrorist and member of The Blacklist.


Matchett was the leader of an eco-terrorist group known as “Los Segadores“ (Spanish for “The Reapers“). Composed of small business farmers, they targeted Verdiant, an agricultural company that dealt in genetically modified organism produce and had forced small farms into bankruptcy. Matchett himself had a vendetta against the company because of a lawsuit that cost him his livelihood. He had owned a farm adjacent to one of Verdiant's facilities. When some of their genetically modified seeds blew onto his field and grew there, Verdiant sued him for infringing on their patent, costing him a fortune in legal fees as well as his farm when the bank foreclosed on him. Adding insult to injury, Verdiant bought the property, along with other farms in the area, and used it to expand their own industrial farm.
