Once known for being one of the brightest and most promising students to ever grace the halls of Xavier's, Quentin's star has fallen quite far. He's known now for being an aggressive, foul tempered and maladjusted youth who maintains and antagonistic stance seemingly for no other reason than to be antagonistic. His outbursts are well documented, and his anti-human viewpoints and hardline mutant activism lead some to speculate that he's just a bad day away from becoming the next extremist mutant terrorist.


Quentin Quire was raised in an affluent New England family, though he was always sort of a black sheep. His parents were distant. At school, he had a hard time making friends, and was often bullied for his frail physique, thick glasses and seemingly endless intellect which made him come across as a know-it-all. As he grew up, he become more and more isolated and withdrawn, so it was a relief for his family, truthfully, when his mutation was discovered. He was promptly shipped off to Xavier's.

Despite quickly becoming a star pupil, Quentin, at first, had just as hard of a time fitting in at a school full of mutants. He was still picked on, considered creepy and weird, and shunned for being a "teacher's pet". This ostracization, coupled with the revelation that he was adopted (on his birthday and over the phone no less), fueled the fires of resentment in the young man. His attitude started souring, and he became obsessed with mutant based paraphernalia, punk rock, anarchist writings, and other extremist views and counterculture interests. He became a sullen and moody boy, openly questioning every view presented to him and callously dismissing the "dream" of Charles Xavier, challenging whether or not Xavier would allow any dream that disagreed with his own to live. The once up and coming rising star of the academy quickly became a sullen disciplinary action waiting to happen. Some even said he had started taking drugs…

And then he was just gone. Just like that. One day he was there, and the next he had vanished into thin air.

The truth is that Quentin's power had grown exponentially, until the point where he could not sustain a physical form. His body had disintegrated and he had become a being of pure psionic energy, which then dispersed like a cloud and in his eagerness, he reached out in all directions into the universe. Eventually this expansion made him lose his sense of self. There was no real, coherent consciousness in his energy form, as dispersed as it was. There was barely more than a spark of sentience. A self preservation instinct. Something triggered that instinct, deep in the heart of the cosmos. Using all of his power, Quentin has brought himself back together again, and reconstituted his physical form (albeit in a more idealized version of it), back on earth.

Character Details

Quentin Quire is a Rebel Without a Cause. He's brash, headstrong, outspoken, loud, contrarian and extremely arrogant. He's the very image of youth in revolt, but with the added oomph of Omega level psionic ability, leading him to have something of a God complex. The reality of it all, though, is that Quentin is a sad, lonely young man, hurt and isolated and constantly fighting off depression, rage, and feelings of inadequacy. He projects only the image of what he thinks will garner him the most attention. He tries to visualize and realize his own "Tyler Durden" within himself by becoming all of the things that he associates with being cool and hip. Things that he thinks will win him respect and admiration. But really, a lot of that is just a front. A paper tiger used to keep himself shielded from more belittlement and bullying, or worse, just blatant disregard. He finds that he truly believes in very little, finding most philosophy (even nihilism) to be hollow and empty, and ideals and dreams even more so. He questions everything because he believes in nothing. Even the causes and viewpoints he does express are just mostly for shock factor. In the end, Quentin just wants to not be broken anymore. He wants people to accept him, warts and all, and to give him a place that he can truly call home. He's just too socially inept and emotionally immature to figure out how to make that happen, despite all of his extreme intelligence.
