Izaak is 6'1" tall, and roughly 180 lbs (before mutation). He has brown hair and
Due to several years of solitary confinement in his home and nearby woods, Izaak
at times can be reserved and shy when among a large group of people. As time
goes on, and he becomes more comfortable with the people around him, his nature
of being warmhearted and loyal, comes out. Because he hasn't had many friends in
his life, Izaak tends to guard the few he has rather tightly often willing to
sacrifice himself to make sure they're safe.
mutation to spontaneously grow two extra sets of arms for a total of six. Each
of the six arms is imbued with additional strength and flexibility that allows
Izaak to rotate his arms 360 degrees and cross them across his back. His
strength level with just two arms is above peak human levels and under ideal
conditions with all six arms in use Izaak is capable of bench pressing 10 Tons.
During his time in isolation in the woods Izaak developed proficiency in
wrestling, boxing, and rough surface climbing.
Izaak was born and raised in a small town outside of Crescent City, California
nearby the redwood national forest. His life was quiet and normal growing up
with a small group of friends and attending school just like anyone else would
do at his age. Things progressed this way until he was thirteen. At this point
Izaak's mutant abilities manifested and his secret was exposed to his parents.
Rather than take him in as a member of the evolving human race, his parents
rejected him and saw him as a demonic figure to be ashamed of. His death was
faked, and a young, scared Izaak was forced into seclusion within his own home.
For years he remained alone and imprisoned in his home. His parents didn't want
anything to do with him and often kept him cooped up in his bedroom. His only
escape and peace came from the improvement of himself at night when he would
sneak away from home and spend countless hours moving around the woodlands
around his home. He never knew what the world was like outside of the woods and
feared being able to survive beyond the forests and so he always returned home.
He expanded his powers by testing his strength, his ability to climb trees, move
through their branches, and defend himself against the more aggressive members
of its wildlife. Eventually Izaak gained proficiency in the use of his multiple
arms and grew comfortable with his mutant powers.
Five years after his exile where the Xavier Institute came to his doorstep; his
parents were offered the freedom away from their son, and Izaak was offered his
life back. For both it was an easy decision. Izaak was sent to the Xavier
Institute a few days later without so much as a word from his parents.
After arriving at the Institute, Izaak was quickly thrown into the lifestyle of
a student in training, taking part in danger room simulations along with large
group missions along side the X-men. Izaak's development during his initial
training was slow. Due to his extreme isolation interacting with large groups of
people were difficult. Furthermore Izaak struggled with the limits of his mutant
abilities relative to the more potent active powers of his teammates. He
developed little friendships with the other students of the school for the first
month at the institute.
Eventually Izaak met the sister of the headmistress, Madison during a routine
training session. The two formed a quick friendship and eventually officially
began dating a few months later. As time passed in the mansion, Izaak later
began growing by gaining new friendships with Samira Qadir, Shirina Elson, and
shortly after his arrival, Dorian Lynd. Once Cat began splitting the students up
into teams for training, Izaak along with Shirina were assigned to the Corsairs
as their field leaders. The responsibility became a source of motivation for
Izaak, often pushing him to train harder on his own and take on a more active
role during corsair training sessions.
Following the countless threats and attempts to kill Madison, Samira Qadir's
betrayal hit Izaak fairly hard as he saw his one friend sacrifice his others for
her own personal agenda. Since then Izaak's remained a loyal friend to those
around him, a passionate student, a devoted boyfriend, and a dedicated leader
for the Corsairs.
