The X-gene, an unexplained alteration in the genetic makeup of human, has given rise to a new breed of humans, homo sapien superior. These people are born with extraordinary abilities, and have come to be called mutants by the public. The first mutant is believed to of been born around 1400 - 1500 A.D. The world has come to fear mutants because of their unusual powers, and many see them as a danger to society. Persecuted and mistreated, mutant must struggle to survive in a harsh world. 1940: The Nazi scientist discover a young boy able to bend metal. 1943: The young boy escapes captivity.

Hair: Sandy Blonde Unusual Features: If you look closely you can see sparks run under his skin, and in his eyes. Biography Luke was born August 27, 1995, and grew up on a farm near Anchorage, Alaska. His father raised elk, and his mother was a nurse at the Anchorage Hospital. Luke was always an active boy, helping his father around the farm, and making treks into the nearby woods. In the winter when time spent outside was scarce, Luke would often read books to pass the time. After reading Robin Hood he fell in love with archery, and received his first bow on his thirteenth birthday. During the winter of Luke's fifteenth year his powers began developing. The lack of sunlight prevented him from generating electricity, but he did notice that his GBA's batteries never lasted more than ten minutes. Suspecting the toy was simply broken, he thought little of it for a couple months. It wasn't until Luke found himself caught in a thunderstorm walking back to the farm from town, that he found out what he was. As the clouds darkened and booms of thunder could be heard, Luke knew he needed to get home quick. He was minutes away from the family farm, when the hail began pelting him through his heavy jacket. Not yet big enough to be dangerous, Luke tried to pick up the pace when he was struck by a bolt of lightning, knocking him to the ground. He was still confused over what had just transpired, when another bolt struck him, and then another right after. Realization came to him, yet oddly he felt no pain, in fact he felt more energized then he had ever been. Another bolt struck Luke as he stood up, but this one met no resistance absorbing into his body. He was struck fifteen times that day, his clothes burn to crisp. He parents were panicked when they saw the state he was in, but settled learning he had no injuries. When summer rolled around, Luke found sunlight to be able to grant him the same energized feeling the lightning had that one fateful night. One morning as he was filling himself with the sun's energy, Luke's father approached him to ask question, but startled Luke when he tapped his shoulder. This led to an accidental discharge of electricity, something Luke was not aware he was capable of, knocking out Luke's father a burning his hand. His mother rushed Luke's dad to the hospital, were he lay in a a coma for three days. His family may have lived in Alaska, but they were still well aware of mutant existence. Luke's uncle had been an open mutant, but was killed during the 'Witch Hunt of 97'. Luke's parents feared for his life, and their own. The next year was hell for Luke, his parents were scared to make physical contact with him, and complained about how they would all be killed if anyone found out. Sick of the look in his parents eyes, he left home. It was in Oregon where Luke befriended the mutant Toad, another vagrant mutant just trying to make it. Luke and Toad were best friends for a moment, and joined the Brotherhood of Mutants together. Toad embraced their violent means of protest, but Luke always wondered if there was another way. Luke assisted in bombing the complex of a scientist who had been performing experiments on captured mutants. During the aftermath, looking upon the corpses of so many dead humans and mutants, Luke decided the life of the Brotherhood was not for him. At seventeen, Xavier found him living on the streets of L.A. He has lived at the Academy for two years now, learning to control his powers and studying various interests. He was dating another student, Noriko Ashida, a girl with similar abilities to his, but when she moved back to Japan they grew distant. He helped with the building of Jean Grey Academy, having carpentry skills he learned on the farm. Out of all the teachers Piotr Rasputin is his favorite, in part due to their similar upbringings. Intelligence 2 Strength 3 Speed 2 / 5* Durability 2 / 4* Energy 5 Fighting 3 *Speed and Durability score dependent on charge level, and consciousness. Powers Organic Electrosynthesis - Luke's body is capable of generating electrical current and storing it naturally. His skin functions as a high efficiency solar energy capturing layer, and his bones are constructed of high density carbon nanotubes, which function as high capacity batteries. Superhuman Speed - Luke can utilize the electrical current in his body to accelerate his body to extreme levels. With enough energy and effort, Luke could potentially move at the speed of lightning 224,000 MpH(Not the speed of light 186,000 MpS.) He can use his super speed to cheat a healing factor by accelerating the cells around the wound, but this requires large amounts of energy and for him to still be conscious enough to focus his powers. Ehanced Strength - Due to his dense carbon bone structure, and the electricity augmenting his natural muscular flex response, Luke is able to life 500lb under optimal conditions. Electrokinesis - Luke can manipulate electrical current with great accuracy, even defying the law of 'the path of least resistance'. He can discharge the electricity charged inside of him, or charge himself from an outside source. Electromagnetic Sight: By concentrating, Luke can perceive the world around him as patterns of magnetic and electrical energy. He can see the natural electromagnetic auras given off by living beings. Weaknesses Magick and certain types of energy blast can cause disruption of his electrical anatomy, and make it difficult for him to concentrate his energy, and can prevent him from healing. Also anytime Luke release energy whether to attack, or accelerate he loses charge. It is uncertain, but there is the possibility that if his charge ever hit absolute zero he could die instantly. There could also be a cataclysmic explosion if he were to ever overload. Luke tries to avoid physical contact with people, afraid he might hurt them like he did his father. Noriko Ashida, his former girlfriend, was the one person he did not have to fear shocking, their relationship a result of his ability to relax around her. Paraphenilia None yet.
