Vladimir's past is not one of gumdrops and lollipops. He never knew his father and it is doubtful that his mother knew as well. His mother was and most likely is (if she not in jail or dead) a whore. She did business out of the small one room apartment that he and she lived in. His earliest memory is seeing man after man come into the apartment and into the room he and his mother slept in. As he grow older and understood more it was not hard to figure out what was happing. His mother most times was to involved with a john or strung out on drugs to do any house keeping or cooking so Vladimir soon took it up trying not to live in squallier

In school Vladimir always the smarted boy in his class even when he was place in advance classes. He found school work easy and boarding. Like all kids who are board and come from a bad home he acted out. One day when the teacher had stepped out of the classroom he took it too far and knocked over a computer tower. He was sure that he would be in trouble when the teacher came back. As he looked at the parts on the floor he understood what he was seeing before that day he never seen the inside of a computer. In a minuet he had the computer back together and working (What he did not know it was working better then before). Thanks to his acting up a teacher took interest in him and sat him down and talk to him about his home life.

That day child services got involved and he was taken away. That was the last time he ever seen his mother. He not sure if she even tries to get him back. He was put into a group home for boys. Now Vladimir is a small boy and not very tough so the large stronger boys picked on him and beat the hell out him offend. He hated that place and tries to run away half a dozen times each time failed.

He spent the next four years in there. That is until the summer of his 13th year of life. One hot day when he was sitting in his room while his roommate was our He had his first real taste of his power one moment hey laying his bed then he feels tingly all over and next thing he knows there a flash of blue and a feeling of rushing and he looking up at blue skies and power lines. He looks around and the home was no place to be found in fact he lying on the side walk in middle of Long Island not far from where he grow up. He did not bother to see his mother at this point grown to hate the women who gave birth to him. He spent that night at a friend’s house he had not seen in a long time most of that night he wonders about what happen to him. After that day he lived with his friend went to school. The fall of his 16th birthday he was approached by a guy with red sunglasses and a black woman with white hair. That day he found out who and what he was.


Standing before you is a 16 year old men. Standing 5 feet 5 inches and weigh about 125 pounds. The way he holds him self shows he is pride man standing striate never hunching over or slouching. His skin show few flews but for the most part it smooth and clear. When getting close you can smell from him a slight scent of mint.

On top of his head is a long mane of hair. His hair reaches down between his shoulder blades. His hair is very blond almost to the point of being white. He keeps his hair tied back into a tail held into place by a black tie. He wears a black leather cap backwards over his head. To the right of the right eye cutting up thought the eye brow and down pass the eye is a scar for some long pass battle. Over his eyes he wears a pair of round blue color sunglasses. Behind the glasses he has striking robin egg blue eyes. His nose is long and thin. His lips are thin and pale. His chin comes to a dull point.

He is a strong man he does not have super strength but he is well built for a human. His neck is long and some what thick but not to the point of being as thick as his head. Around his neck is a thin silver chain. On the chain is a small silver globe charm. His shoulders are wide but not to the point of being like a line backer. His arms not very thick but if you look at them you can see that thy in good shape with wiry muscles. On each arm he as a tattoo sleeve of a wispy spider wed. His hands are wide and have long thick fingers. Each hand is cover with a pair of fingerless leather gloves. Each glove has sliver studs on each knuckle. His chest and stomach help shape his body as an upside down triangle. His chest is wide and supports a pair of large pecks. He wears a black sleeveless cotton shirt with sliver studs around the arm holes. Over his shirt he wears a black leather trench coat. The coat hangs down to the back of his shins. His stomach is firm and flat. It looks as tight as a drum.

His hips are even with his stomach and do little to change the shape of his body. His legs are like his arms strong and powerful. His legs are long given him a large stride. He wears a pair of black pair of dress pants with a black leather belt with a silver belt buckle. His feet are long and wide giving him a firm footing. He wears a pair of black leather biker boots.


Network is able to link his mind with computers and other devices. To do this his mind leaves his body and enters the computer. This does leave his body vulnerable since he is unaware of what’s going on around him. His body when is damage while his mind is in a computer he does not feel it until return to it. In fact His mind can live on in cyber space even if his body dies. Of course he does not know this and there no real way to test thing with out killing him. Firewalls are simple to get pass all he has to do is find the back door if there is one if not then he just needs to reprogram it to let him in most times he can get past them quickly. Other security programs like virus protection or spy where blocker dose not activate with him since his mind is not in there programming of things to watch for. If someone ever did make a program to attack him in the computer he would be like a virus to him his mind would be at risk. But he can use the computer he is in to block or redirect the program so he can escape. Virus he does encounter do harm him like any other program in the computer he can have parts of his mind removed making him lose memories and weaken him. If he weakens too much he will not be able to return to his body he might even forget he has a body to return to. His body will then stay in a coma like state. In time his mind might be able to rebuild it self to the point he might wake up but not on it’s own he would need someone to guild him thought it building and willing strength needed to wake up. Even if he does wake up he will not be able to remember anything of his life before waking up. Not even Professor X will be able to return his memories. If a computer is wiped such as by a powerful magnet and his mind is inside his mind will be blanked as well. He will be brain dead. Strong magnetic forces make him weak and if long expose sick. This will not kill him and looks as if he has the flu.

Cyber Surfing
This is the power that first showed it self. He can digitalize his body and travel thought any wired device (TV, Computer, Dish Washer). The device has to be plugged into a power source (so things like Cell Phone, Walkie-Talkies, and MP3 player will not work) and turned on for him to past through it. At the moment he can not control this power having it happen at random when near electrical devices. At this level of control he can not be sure what will make it and what will not.
