Character Journal: The object of art is to give life a shape
Real Name: Victor Alan Borkowski
First Appearance: August 07, 2009
Date of Birth: February 27, 1993
Place of Birth: Fairbury, Illinois
Relatives: Richard and Linda Borkowski, parents
Education: Currently a junior in high school
Relationship Status: Single
Team Affiliation: New Mutants
Victor is the only child of Richard, a high school history teacher, and Linda, a fourth grade teacher. He was born and raised in Fairbury, Illinois, a town with a population of roughly 4,000 in northeastern Illinois. Victor has been a visible mutant all of his life--he's green, has a spiky carapace and a long, prehensile tongue. However, his parents worked hard to make sure that Victor had as normal a life as possible, and on the whole, he's been accepted by the other residents of Fairbury.
His childhood was fairly uneventful, although he and his parents spent summers traveling around the U.S. Because of this, he's fairly well-traveled, at least domestically. He's also fairly well acquainted with prejudice from his time on the road, and because of this he has worked hard to be as disarming and friendly as possible when meeting new people.
Victor's fairly idyllic adolescence was disrupted after the events of Day Zero, when a local anti-mutant group emerged in nearby Pontiac, Illinois. After some local unrest, his parents began to fear for Victor's safety, as his mutation is impossible to hide. Victor's parents had corresponded with Professor Xavier previously, as they had gotten in contact with him after seeing the documentary produced on the school, but at the time they'd decided that there was no reason to send Victor to Xavier's--his powers were well-managed and he was fitting in well at school. However, after receiving some specific threats, Victor and his parents agreed that it would be best for him to attend Xavier's to finish his high school education.
Living At The X-Mansion
Victor came to Xavier's in August of 2009 and became roommates with Johnny Gallo. He quickly adapted to the school, making friends with Doreen Green and Johnny, and going on the Malibu trip with the New Mutants. Jean-Paul Beaubier also became something of a mentor to the young man. Dori's interest in him turned into a crush, which Vic remained completely oblivious to.
When Johnny visited his father for the first time since coming to the school, Vic went along as emotional support. It turned out to be a fortunate thing, as both boys were involved with taking down the drug-addled and violent son of Mr. Gallo's girlfriend. Vic was injured in the incident, spraining his tongue, and was in the process of recovering when he received word his mother was ill. He returned home at his father's request.
Weight: 120 lbs
Other Features: Green, scaly skin; spiky carapace on his head; long, prehensile tongue
Victor's mutation is reptilian in nature. Since birth, he's had green, scaly skin, a spiky carapace, and a long, prehensile tongue. His tongue, fingertips and toes are all sticky and allow him to crawl up walls, which was all sorts of fun for his parents when he was a toddler. His hands and feet each have a weight bearing capacity of roughly 50 lbs, and his tongue 5-10 lbs. He also has increased speed, reflexes, agility, coordination and balance. Victor has adaptive camouflage, but doesn't realize this yet, as he doesn't have conscious control over it. It currently only manifests under extreme duress.
Victor has been to every state except Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Hawai'i.
