I was given up for adoption when I was a baby. I never knew my real parents. Rex found me and adopted me when I was 4, and I moved with him to Mount Haven. I don't remember what my name was when I was a baby, but when Rex adopted me he let me pick my own name. That's why it's spelled wrong. Not long afterwards he introduced me to Knox and Gibson, and I've had a fairly normal life ever since.


I feel kind of stupid writing this part. You've read the story so far, you must have some idea of what I'm like. Let's see...I like comic books. I love the "Giant Converter Tricky-Bots" show, toys, and comics. I don't get along with many people besides Knox. I've dated some girls, but it never works out. I think I'm a positive guy for the most part, but sometimes it seems I'm an electromagnet in the scrap yard of bad luck.

Heck, I don't know - read the story. That should tell you all you need to know about me.


I can absorb just about any kind of energy - like heat, electrical, radiation. Up 'til recently I couldn't do anything with the energy - the best I could do was substitute solar energy for food (for a while, anyway). But in Part Two my full power was activated. So far I've found out I can re-release the energy in the form of bolts that fire from my eyes and hands.

Kinetic energy affects me the way it does anyone else, though. I went to a Jesus Love Knuckle concert with Gibson once, and I got dizzy from all the noise. So I'm thinking I'm not as good at absorbing sonic energy either. I don't know, I'm no scientist.

Unlike Knox and Gibson, my ability came with a visible side-effect. I don't produce any melanin in my skin. My doctor seems to think it's some way for my body to absorb more of the different kinds of radiation all around. All I know is it makes me look like a clown. Back to the Cast Page
