I don't have time to type out his entire backstory, but I'mma just say that he accidentally killed his parents and was sent to the academy to help control his powers.
Ok this is his actual backstory jshsj: Colin was born with his powers, and all the way up until he was about 15 they were manageable and never really caused bad things to happen. But as he got older, they just got harder to control. Which uh, plays a huge part of what happens next. So quick note, as he got older his powers also got more unpredictable, and a thunderstorm could easily set them off because of the lightning.
And on the, particular night that everything went wrong, there was a thunderstorm. A bad one. One that was directly over the town that Colin lived in. So on this, particular night, Colin was getting a glass of water when lightning flashed multiple times outside, sparking his lightning powers.
You can probably see where this is going.
So his hands are sparking electricity and it's really hard to make them stop, and this is when the parents come downstairs because they heard the ✨sparks of electricity ✨
Badabing badaboom, one of the parents surprised Colin so much that he accidentally sent a lightning bolt their way.
Also, another note, it doesn't happen often, but sometimes Colin's powers can attract actual lightning bolts from the sky, especially when there's a thunderstorm.
And that just so happened to happen that night.
So lightning strikes the house while the remaining parent is freaking out, and Colin is crying on the floor since the lightning bolt he sent out knocked him onto the ground.
Then the house catches on fire
And gets struck again
Chaos is everywhere.
And the remaining parent got pinned down by a falling beam from the roof.
Colin never had a nice backstory
He wears gloves (rubber), because when they're not on his powers can suddenly, out of nowhere just come out. He can manipulate lightning, and his powers are really hard to control. So ah, the gloves are important.
He hates getting made fun of for his appearance, not only because of his birthmark and eyes, but also since he has a bit of chonk- he's not fat or anything, just a bit chonky
Despite being a really nice person, he does get made fun of, but he doesn't let it get to him too much
He's the type of person who like, aggressively comforts you if you're sad
Oh and also, his eyes turn all cool and bright cyan when he uses his ✨lightning powers✨, and he cries tears of pure e l e c t r i c i t y
Why am I having so much fun designing this guy-
