Brendan is quite the unusual and enigmatic character, generally keeping the details of his personal life to himself…though if one were to find out how he came to be in the position he is at today, it would definitely spark interest in what the young man is capable of.

Born in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois, Brendan's childhood wasn't anything out of the ordinary; his parents cared for him well enough, and he was a good enough kid for the most part. Sure, he had his moments, but what kid doesn't? It was when he had become a teenager that things began to change, and change in a not-so-good way.
At the time, mutant mania seemed to be at a peak, and when Brendan had discovered his own particular 'abilities', he did nothing to hide them like many of his peers. He was proud to be one of the few unique beings in a society that seemed to embrace conformity, and at every opportunity he could he showed off and basically 'abused' his powers. At least according to others, anyhow.

He would always go out of his way to search out those humans who held disdain for mutants, and when he found them he would usually beat them to within an inch of their lives. Of course, they never told anyone who did it for fear he would come back and finish the job; there always was an air of intimidation around the teen, even though he really wasn't very tall or muscular.

Being quite the intelligent guy, Brendan had always done very well in school, and upon graduating from high school the first thing he did was head right to college. Getting a degree in business and computing, Brendan soon joined an up and coming software company in downtown Chicago. Using his intelligence to benefit himself, he had become rather successful at what he did, and his notoriety grew, as did the amount of money in his bank account. After a decent amount of time at the place, Brendan had become restless and wanted to see what else was out there in the world…and he wanted to do what he could to help his own kind.

Brendan had always been very outspoken about the mutant lifestyle, taking whatever opportunities that he could to argue that they were much more important than humans in the whole scheme of things. Every time someone rose up and spoke out against mutants, Brendan was right there immediately after with a rebuttal of his own. Brendan had decided to take matters into his own hands and use whatever clout he might have had left to create various safehouses around the city for mutants who held his same viewpoint. Upon getting them well established in Chicago, he had flown himself to New York City to begin the process there…and it is there where he now finds himself.


The ability to 'meld'…that is, absorb himself into various solid objects that are either the same size or larger than himself. At the moment, he hasn't got as much control over his powers as he eventually will have in the future…at the full extent of his abilities he will be able to basically 'possess' objects and manipulate them from within. He tried this on a human once before, and the repercussions most definitely were not pretty. He is also able to 'phase', appearing and disappearing at will, which is useful when stealth is needed. When either upset or manifesting his powers, his eyes turn from a grayish-hazel to a smoky gray-blue color, and he becomes pretty much transparent, giving him an eerie, ghostlike appearance.Recently, some odd surge in his powers has caused a very light yet noticeable blue aura to appear around him just before he activates his powers. When phased and in his 'ghost form', he is immune to telekinesis, however his one major weakness is electricity. For whatever reason it affects him whether phased out or not.
