Reputation

A student at Xavier's Institute, Quentin Quire used to be the headmaster's prize pupil until events in his life led him to take a sudden and dramatic turn. Now, Quentin is Xavier's greatest problem student, espousing anti-human views and generally just running contrary to every popular philosophy in the school — a young man precariously teetering on the brink of 'troublemaker' and something far, far worse.

Biography

Raised by an affluent family in New England, despite the benefits that his family afforded him, Quintavius Quirinius Quire has always felt like he never belonged. From his distant parents to the children who would always shun, ignore, or outright harass him even from an early age for being 'different,' Quentin's extreme intelligence did him no favors, making him that much more cognizant of his belittled and unwanted status and that much more bitter and jaded about it as he grew up.

As he approached his teenage years, and as he began showing overt signs of his phenomenal mutant ability, his parents were all too happy to ship him off to Xavier's Institute to get him the help he clearly needed. For him, it was something of a relief for once in his young life. A second chance, an opportunity to finally be where he belonged…

… but it turns out, people are just people, and kids are kids, no matter what sort of superpowers they have. Deemed by most of the other students to be weird and creepy, Quentin was as much an outcast at the Institute as he was anywhere else. He put his frustrations into his work; swiftly becoming the prize student of Xavier himself, all his hard work never actually satisfied him. If anything, it drove that wedge between himself and others deeper; soon, he started to collect bizarre and esoteric bits of mutant history as his outlook grew more and more harsh and his need to be recognized grew all the more profound. Every mockery, every teasing, every bullying, just made him all the more jaded…

… and ultimately, the last straw would come on his birthday, when he received a phonecall from his parents. To tell him he was adopted. Over the phone. On his birthday.

It wasn't great.

Something snapped inside Quentin on that day, and the once-promising boy has never been the same since. Making himself over completely, the young man dyed his hair, and started to be openly rebellious, questioning everything the institute stands for while openly flaunting the flags of mutant counterculture and extremist ideologies while sporting a devil-may-care level of youthful indifference only a truly cool teenage visionary could manage. As of now, Quentin Quire has only gone from top teacher's pet to top bothersome troublemaker, a frequent disciplinary issue but not much more…

… but it may only be a matter of time before that reaches a tipping point.

Character Details

Quentin Quire is the portrait of what youth in revolt looks like when it's supplemented by unfathomable superpowers. Much of what Quentin presents to the world is a facade, a carefully crafted image of what he thinks is cool, what he thinks is memorable — what he thinks will keep him protected from the rest of the world at large. Even before he reached that tipping point with the news of his adoption, Quentin Quire was a phenomenally arrogant young man with an infatuation for things that go against the mainstream, identifying with the simple fact that they do not belong. Since his personal reinvention, he's taken that to a whole new level: Quentin presents himself as a rebel, a visionary, a gadfly who asks the questions that don't want to be asked. He likes to espouse views that go against what is commonly accepted and wears his contrarian colors proudly. He openly defies figures of authority and generally touts anarchic tendencies, championing his own personal view of youthful visionaries versus the stagnation of the old guard that adults represent.

But this is all a facade, and one that he, to some degree, acknowledges. There isn't much that Quentin truly believes in: coolness, causes, everything to him is nothing more than illusions and presentation with no substance. And while he might parade himself as the opposite… he is exactly the same. The truth is, Quentin Quire is a troubled, teenaged boy who is scared of opening himself up after a lifetime of being belittled for who he is, embittering him and making him lash out at the world around him. Socially stunted, he has a hard time making friends and thus more often than not just pushes people away as compensation for that fact.

He doesn't want to belong anymore. He doesn't want to be associated with people. And yet, paradoxically, he wants people to acknowledge him, to accept him, to want to be like him, to respect him. To think he's cool. He's egocentric, self-absorbed, and endlessly selfish, but not beyond redemption for as much as he might balk and lash out at it. But right now?

Quentin Quire just wants to be remembered. And he'll do whatever it takes to make sure people -never- forget him.

Soundtrack

Quentin

Paranoid Android - Radiohead
When I am king, you will be first against the wall
With your opinion which is of no consequence at all
What's that?
What's that?
Ambition makes you look pretty ugly
Kicking, squealing Gucci little piggy
You don't remember
You don't remember
Why don't you remember my name?
Off with his head, man
Off with his head, man
Why don't you remember my name?
I guess he does

Children of the Revolution -- T. Rex
You can tell a plane, in the falling rain.
I gotta rolls royce,
cause its good for my voice,
but you won't fool the children of the revolution.
No you won't fool the children of the revolution.

Pumped Up Kicks -- Foster the People
Robert's got a quick hand
He'll look around the room, he won't tell you his plan
He's got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth he's a cowboy kid
Yeah found a six shooter gun
In his dad's closet hidden oh in a box of fun things, I don't even know what
But he's coming for you, yeah he's coming for you

All You Pretty Things -- David Bowie
Look at your children
See their faces in golden rays
Don't kid yourself they belong to you
They're the start of a coming race
The earth is a bitch
We've finished our news
Homo Sapiens have outgrown their use
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay

Minority -- Green Day
Stepped out of the line
Like a sheep runs from the herd
Marching out of time
To my own beat now
The only way I know
One light, one mind
Flashing in the dark
Blinded by the silence of a thousand broken hearts
"For crying out loud" she screamed unto me
A free for all
Fuck 'em all
You're on your own side
