Real Name: Emily
Emily has short,
straight black hair. If it wasn't for her eyes, the average person would think she
was human. Instead of the typical round pupils, her eyes are more slit
shaped with black irises and metallic silver pupils. Her eyes are also subject
to change when using her mutant abilities:
to a red crimson color with a faint red glow.
This altering of eye color is a common trait in among her family.
Fitting the social outcast stereotype, Emily often found herself playing into
that role throughout her youth. As an adult, she continues to feel as an
outsider looking in, even among her mutant peers. However, despite this outsider
persona, she has a strong bond with her family, specifically her siblings, for
whom she is over-the-top protective. When she is able to develop friendships,
those relationships become strong and iron clad, given her extremely loyal
genetic makeup of her body is rather unique.
The X-Gene, a gene normal humans lack and gives mutants their abilities, caused
a rare deformity at her cellular level. Although blood flows through her veins, there is another substance that
through her veins; broken-down molecules that, when formed, can produce fire.
Naturally she is in constant pain from the chemicals that flow through her body,
thus she must take various medications to subdue the pain. However, she has
control over these chemicals and can 'release' the chemicals from her body
through her pores. Upon being released, the chemicals mix and produce fire.

can "enter" the "darkness" through a portal. It is unclear how this
ability manifested, but she
can literally rip open a portal, almost like a worm-hole, and use it similar to
"teleportation." However, she must be careful when moving through these
"darkness portals," because she doesn't want to cross over in to another dimension or alternate reality,
given that little information has been collected and analyzed about the
"darkness" she travels through.

Similar to her brother, Matt, her home
life in Ohio was wonderful until her fire and 'darkness portal' abilities surfaced at
the age of fifteen. Just as unwilling to accept a mutant son, her parents were
unwilling to accept a mutant daughter. Without even being contacted about
admission for their daughter, Emily was sent to the Xavier Institute. Arriving
on the doorstep with two suitcases in hand, Emily was uncertain what would come
from this new place.
Professor Charles Xavier welcomed Emily with open arms.
She was immediately enrolled in classes for both academics and her mutant
abilities. Emily was somewhat of a loner. She preferred being by herself, never
feeling as though she fit well among her peers.
When Emily was seventeen years old, now known by her
alias 'Em', she met two young women around the same age: Jade Bennington and
Gena Shinoda "Ajax". The three girls quickly bonded, coming to find they had
more in common than they had originally thought. Em seemed to be a combination
of her two new friends, each of whom shared a similar mutant ability as Em.
Over the next couple years, Em graduated from the Xavier Institute and went on
to receive her Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics from the university. Her
interest in these two fields was more to gain a better understand of her own
"darkness portal" abilities. She proceeded to take a teaching position in Algebra
and Geometry at the Xavier Institute.
While her former friends from her youth chose to leave the mansion and the X-men
lifestyle, Em chose to stay. This choice was seemingly rewarded when she met and
began dating Aidan Mitchell "Cobalt." After dating for three years, Aidan
proposed to Em. Following a two year engagement, they were married in the chapel
at the Xavier Institute. She and her husband, Aidan, now live together at the
Currently a teacher and X-men, Em has come to call the
Xavier Institute her home.
