Before his disappearance, Brian was your average 18 year old. He was social,
friendly, and an excellent team member on the field and off it. Unfortunately,

Current Profession: Resident/X-Men
Born in San Francisco, California,
Brian grew up with his older twin sisters Sara and Jessica. He was raised
primarily by his mother. His father was out of the picture for most of his life.
It wasn't until he was much older that he learned his father was Magneto, the
leader of the Brotherhood. When his sisters' developed their abilities, his
mother panicked and sent them to the Xavier Institute to help with the
development of their abilities before his father could recruit them into his
Brian entered his teen years, his abilities began to develop. Before his mother
could send him to the safety of the Xavier Institute, some of Magneto's men
arrived and escorted him to the Savage Lands. However, they never made it to the
Savage Lands. They were intercepted by a military patrol who transferred the
entire group to a mutant testing facility for lab research. Brian spent nearly
four years in the mutant testing facility, growing up with his powers raging out
of control while being tortured for science. Finally, after almost four years,
the X-men rescued and released all the mutant occupants. When Brian was
discovered and identified among the group, he was brought to the Xavier
the next two years, Brian trained to become an X-men at the Xavier Institute.
During that time, his relationship with his sister Sara deteriorated when he
discovered that she had betrayed the X-men on several occasions during her time
with the Acolytes.
Brian was eighteen years old, he was appointed an X-men with several members of
his graduating class. His abilities would begin to mutate shortly after his
appointment as X-men. During a mission, Brian was mortally injured while
protecting Veronica Fieron during the retreat. V had been injured and Brian was
covering her retreat while Kraig Peters helped her back to the X-jet. Despite
everyone making it back to the jet, Brian seemingly died of his injuries at the

Savage Lands for treatment, and killed a shapeshifter to take Brian's place.
Magneto even attended the funeral, knowing it was not actually Brian being
buried. Sara initiated a rescue mission with the help of Izaak Shaw. The two
were able to rescue Brian from the Savage Lands where he was being kept in the
medical facilities under sedation.
is now twenty-four years old and dealing with the loss of six years of his life.
Brian knows better than anyone the impact of losing time. With the combined time
kept at the Savage Lands and previously at the mutant testing facility in his
early teens, Brian had been robbed of roughly ten years of his twenty-four years
of life. Brian is now trying to cope with his continuously mutating abilities
which had not fully come to fruition before his disappearance, as well as coping
with another chunk of his life being stolen from him.
