Background: Professor Charles Xavier
found Piotr (Peter) Nikolaievitch Rasputin in the Ust-Ordyinski collective in
the Ukraine, shortly after the Russian mutant smashed a tractor that was bearing
down upon his little sister Illyana. Xavier convinced Piotr that his powers were
needed by the world, not just for his own personal uses. Piotr was enrolled as a
student and before long joined the ranks of the X-Men. However, after the
Professor had passed away, Piotr returned home to live with his family again.
Unfortunately tragedy struck one day while Piotr was working in the fields; his
family’s house caught fire. His mother, father, and little sister passed away
that day, or so Piotr thought. With nothing left Piotr returned to the Xavier
mansion, to his team, and to the school he had called home so long ago.
Despite the horrific tragedy, the next couple of years
were wonderful for Piotr; so much had happened in his life. Shortly after his
return to the mansion, he met a beautiful girl named Veronica “V” Fieron. He
soon fell in love with her.
When everything seemed to be looking up for Piotr -- a
new home, a beautiful girlfriend, and a best friend -- Piotr suddenly had to
leave to return to Russia. News reached him that his sister, Illyana, was alive
and had survived the fire, however, she had been kidnapped by his bother
Mikhail. After three long months of searching with no end in sight, Piotr, with
the help of his cousin Mika, finally found his brother in Moscow. Mikhail was
about take over the capital, with his sister in hand. After a drawn out battle
between Piotr and Mikhail, when all the dust had settled, Piotr stood victorious
over his brother and saved his sister.
After saving his sister, Piotr thought it would be best
to return to the Xavier mansion once more. He spent his time finishing his
schooling in order to get his degree in art. He also spent his day hanging with
his new friends and the love of his life, Veronica.
After Piotr returned home from another small incident
in Russia, where his sister had caught a sickness and passed away, Piotr
proposed to Veronica and hoped to live the rest of his life happily together
with her… Now the only thing he has to worry about is dealing with Veronica’s
older sister and brother. He hopes his metal is strong enough to withstand the
heat and falling from great heights.
