Born on a flustery day, her parents knew right off that Jezika wasn't quite right. But they waited. Her siblings were okay, and with Jezika being the youngest, maybe if they waited it out that she would get better. But no such luck for the young Pyro.
Once she hit two, she began changing. She burned endless things down on accident and it began to scare her parents. So they did the only thing they could think of..and get a few extra bucks for.
They took her to a medical research facility. They didn't want a freak for a child. A dangerous freak none the less. So it was there that she was raised, mostly like any other child but with some setbacks.
As she grew older, they began sticking her with weird serums and needles every day..so it was only natural that she got into drugs and self mutilation..they did it to her everyday, didn't they? When things got bad when she hit her teens, she would melt off a piece of a chair, or some other metal and she would carve at the underside of her arm. -Freak- was one of the words that scralled across her skin. But they would heal and she would start over. It seemed to ease the pain of a lost childhood.
Though she wasn't alone. There were other's like her with different abilities. Upon her seventeenth birthday, someone had made her mad and broke the new guitar that the doctor had given her. She'd been teaching herself for years and finally she had one of her own. And being a level headed girl most of the time, she caused no problems..until that night.
In a fit of rage, she went after the girl who broke her present and in doing such..she managed to set the facility ablaze even though it was supposed to be fireproof. This sparked the attention of Mutant Rights activists and soon the media joined the circus. Every one of the children were sent to foster homes.
Every one but Jezika.
She got sent to Xavier's School for the Gifted. People seemed to think that Jezika could be a great help if she learned the right way to hone her powers. So off she went, seventeen and friendless into a new environment. But she seemed to get along just fine.
