Reputation

The son of Magneto and the twin of Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and his sister are known primarily as leaders among the Brotherhood and violent 'activists' against all who would harm or oppress the mutant race. They are also known for being notoriously inseparable.

Biography

Born in the early 1950s in a citadel on Wundagore Mountain, Transia, the twins Pietro and Wanda were abandoned by their true mother, Magda Eisenhardt, shortly after birth. However, by mysterious means, they were placed in suspension and did not truly begin life until 1991, when they were given as infants to a Romani couple surnamed Maximoff, who had lost their own children.

The small family lived uneasily under the shadow of the region's intolerance and instability following the dissolution of the USSR. Their adoptive father died very early in their lives, a victim of hate and intolerance as he struggled to support them. Their mother raised them alone, after that.

Life in rural Transia was not kind to a single mother, nor to the children of one, but the family muddled along well enough until the twins hit their teenage years. This was when their mutant abilities first began to manifest. At first they were understated enough that they could hide… but Wanda's abilities were not the kind which could be hidden for long.

Soon enough, the superstitious came to burn her. Their mother tried to defend her, but in the struggle she was hurt — and Wanda, seeing this, lost control of her nascent powers.

Hex-fire burns faster and hotter than normal fire, and Pietro was still young and new to his own powers himself. He saved Wanda from the flames, but he could not also save their mother.

The village drove them out, calling Wanda a witch for what she had done. Alone now in the world except for each other, the twins made their way across Europe for years, surviving in the wild and relying on no one but one another. Wanda was happy enough in this existence, but Pietro grew bitter and hardened, resentful of a world that rejected their very existences, and placed them — the powerful and gifted — at the bottom of the pecking order.

In time they made their way to America, and by their late teens the twins were living underground among its robust mutant community. It was there that they first began to hear of the Brotherhood and its fight for mutant rights. Pietro and Wanda eventually fell in with the group, running with them up until Magneto's withdrawal from active war splintered the faction.

After Magneto's departure, the organization dwindled and decentralized, its membership split between those who wanted to carry on war against humankind, and those who espoused Magneto's new creed: a bid to outwait a species he perceived to already be on the edge of extinction. Due to the persecution they had suffered, the twins rejected the latter — even after their discovery that Magneto was in fact their father — and took over some of the more extremist and militant factions of the Brotherhood.

Character Details

The nature of Pietro's mutation informs his personality. When you're able to live life orders of magnitude more quickly than everyone else, impatience is an inevitable result. Trapped in the midst of people who move, think, act, and speak way too slowly, Pietro has become an abrasive and irritable young man, quick to anger and often immensely frustrated by the smallest things. His ability to stay hundreds of steps in front of everyone else has also bred in him a cocky, overconfident arrogance, which can often be turned to his disadvantage.

The only person who escapes his tendency towards impatient callousness is his twin sister. Wanda coaxes out the expression of the other major facet of his personality: fierce loyalty and devotion, which sees him dedicated slavishly to her well beyond any healthy closeness, and into the realms of severe codependency.

Brotherhood

Image Name Known As Information
GlOVWeE.jpg Frenzy Sworn Shield Perhaps the only person I will trust with Wanda, for short periods of time.
jiNJUEL.jpg Faora Alien Ally A strange figure from a dead world. Noble, martial — and most importantly, of like mind on the matter of registration and evolutionary suppression. Sometimes I wonder at the price of her zeal, however.

The Family

Image Name Known As Information
ZDmwST5.jpg Magneto Dear Father There was a small window, right after discovering their relation, during which Pietro was impressionable towards his father. It closed.
lPNpEDQ.jpg Polaris Lorna Frustrating at best: self-absorbed, and so desperate for a sense of family that she lets herself be used, and tunnel-visions away from the things which are truly important.

Other People, Really I Can't Be Bothered

C0WO1yB.png Phil Coulson Agent Coulson That rare thing — a kind human.
CPFJYti.png Sharon Carter Agent 13 Petulant, scolding — but earnest. Good intentions are rarely enough by themselves, however. Spend less time trying to twit me, and more on fixing your disaster of an organization.
