It's a bit ridiculous, to be honest.

equalizer Backstory
What is this character's backstory?

There are seven different kinds of Psychics. Astral Psychics, Crystal Psychics, Tarot Psychics, Angel Psychics, Gypsy Psychics, Akasha Psychics, and Clairvoyants. Every Psychic gets Branded at the age of eight. Knox is no exception.
When he was Branded an Astral, his mom, who already hated him ( Mom -> Esme Rivers ) kind of lost it. She went to consult her crystal ball, literally seething with anger. She'd wanted another Crystal to continue her scamming Psychic business, and she'd already hated the Astrals.
After consulting her ball, she comes back shaken. When Knox asks her what's wrong, her eyes sort of roll back and she tells Knox he will predict his own death and die knowing it was his own fault.
Obviously, this really spooked him. Knox vowed to never use his 'gift' if that would happen...
That same year, his cousin Mallory died. They were really close, and her death upset him a lot. Nothing eventful happened until he was twelve, and Abigail's Dad died.
This time Knox saw that if he'd trained in his gift and predicted their deaths, he could have told them and they could have died surrounded by loved ones. They could've changed how they died and died happy.
He thinks it's his fault because he was scared, because he didn't train. Knox is ridiculously hard on himself sometimes.
