Mikhail was born to a Gypsy clan in Borsa, Romania to Yana and Dmitri Kaldarash, on the 4th of October 1993. It became apparent not long after his birth that he was a mutant, due to his dark blue hair, fangs and black eyes, his parents were originally worried that the rest of the clan would turn against him when they realised, until the day the Elder Woman visited them, when she saw the inhuman qualities of the baby she told the clan that the child would bring them great fortune, and he became the most loved child in the clan. For four years the clan had a great deal of good fortune, nothing to do with Mikhail of course but the clan believed it was because of him, because the Elder Woman said it so, not much longer after he learned to walk, his animal instincts began to kick in, he was faster, stronger and had stronger reflexes than every man in the clan, he even began joining the male members of the clan hunting.

It was on one such hunting trip that Mikhail was stolen from the life he was living and brought to a much darker one. There had been a circus troop living nearby where his clan where staying, the leader of the troop had been observing Mikhail and had noticed his differences and his skills and saw him not as an amazing child like his clan did, he saw him as a way to further his troops income. So on one of the clan’s hunting trips he lured Mikhail away, Mikhail followed him without question, he’d grown up in such a trusting environment that he saw no reason not to trust the stranger who was calling him away from his clan. That was the last day he saw his family, and probably the last happy day of his life.

As soon as the troop got far enough away from his clan, the leader began advertising their newest attraction “Mikhail Magnificul” (Mikhail The Magnificent), for the first few weeks he was at the circus the troop leader tried nice tactics to get him to perform but Mikhail always refused and cried to go home, but after three weeks of crowds demanding their money back he turned very nasty. He took away Mikhail’s clothing, tattooed him with several tribal markings to make him seem more primal, he also tattooed Mikhail’s name on his wrist with a line though it (to symbolise that he can take everything from him, including his name), he only allowed him to eat raw meat (partly to dehumanise him and partly for the effect of blood dripping from his mouth) and he was never cleaned (to add to the animalistic effect). When he didn’t perform, didn’t perform to the extent the troop leader wanted or when he just felt he deserved it, Mikhail was beaten with a belt and burned with a hot poker, it was at this point that they learned of his healing capabilities, the punishments became part of the act. He was advertised as the “Bestia Copil” (The Beast Child).

As Mikhail grew up the punishments became more intense and the crowd where allowed to participate in them, and the leader began the act by saying “Dacă el nu tipa tu a lua banii înapoi” (If he doesn’t scream you get your money back!). It even got to the point where they’d give out dog whistles to the crowd and having them blow them whenever they don’t think he’s performing properly, which would knock him to the floor screaming. It was during one of these shows that a representative of the Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters turned up, he demanded that the show was stopped and Mikhail be released or he would alert the authorities, angrily the troop leader threw Mikhail and the representative out of the circus. Due to Mikhail having no means of looking after himself and being unable to locate his parents after so many years, he arranged for him to attend the Institute.


Mikhail’s mutation isn’t noticeable from a distance, but once you get up close they become easily noticeable, he has pronounced canines, black animal-like eyes, his nails are a slightly darker colour than they should be and are made of something much denser than keratin (they can easily cut through flesh) and he also has naturally dark blue hair. As well as his teeth and claws, he has a degree of superhuman strength (he has the physical strength of 10 full grown men), he has a degree of superhuman speed (he can run at about three times the speed of an Olympic runner) and he also has a heightened healing factor (he will heal rapidly from minor injuries e.g. shallow cuts, bruises, small bone breaks, more serious wounds he will need medical help with but will heal more rapidly than normal people, things such as bullets and blades will have to be removed before he will heal, which can lead to him bleeding out), he’s stamina is also heightened (he can be involved in constant physical activity for up to 36 hours without any ill effects). Mikhail’s senses of sight, smell, hearing and reflexes are all superhumanly acute. He can see with perfect clarity at greater distances than an ordinary human, even in near-total darkness. His hearing is enhanced in a similar manner, allowing him to both hear sounds ordinary humans can't and also hear to greater distances. He is able to use his sense of smell to track targets by scent, even if the scent has been eroded somewhat over time by natural factors. With practise he may also be able to use his senses of smell and hearing, through concentration, as a type of natural lie detector, such as detecting a faint change in a person's heartbeat and scent when a lie is told.
