Typhon does not know his original name. As far as he knows, Typhon is
his original name.
Typhon's earliest memories are of escape. He remembers a white room, running through a hallway, men with lab coats, pain....Nothing solid, only flashes.
His earliest solid memories are from less than a year ago, where he scavenged the streets and sewers of Freedom City in order to survive. His alien appearance kept him from interacting with normal people, but that same alien appearance blessed him with strange powers, allowing him to survive. He could survive on hunting rats without getting horribly sick, see even in the darkest of alleys and defend himself if he managed to get into fights with street thugs or other criminals. He survived, but it was not a happy life. Typhon longed for a place where he would be accepted, yet most people ran away screaming when they saw him.
Typhon's life began to change for the better when he saw a woman being assaulted by a mugger. Wishing to help, Typhon managed to fight off the mugger, even though the woman ran away in fright at the sight of him. This simple good deed (for a super, anyway) was witnessed by a superhero named Goldmax. Seeing potential in the strange creature, Goldmax told him of a special training program for people like him, where he could be among other "special people" like himself. Typhon leaped at the chance, and went with Goldmax immediately.
Despite his monstrous appearance, Typhon is a friendly (if shy) individual. Those who are not immediately frightened off by his strange appearance will find a kind young man who enjoys monster movies (he would often sneak into theaters while living on the streets), music and simply talking with people his own age. He attends his classes, but usually wears a hooded sweatshirt with the hood up in order to hide himself from the other students.Typhon

Amnesia: Typhon has no memory of his life before his escape from the lab. He doesn't even know if he had a life before his escape, or if he we was even created in the lab.
Monstrous Appearance: Typhon has no way of hiding his strange appearance. If he were to wear baggy clothes and a hoodie, he might be able to pass as human for a bit. However, any close look at him in such a disguise will reveal what he truly is.
Motivation: Understanding: Aside from acceptance, Typhon wishes more than anything to find out what he is.
Quirk- strange appetites: When Typhon lived in the streets, he survived on raw pidgeons, rats and other street animals that he hunted personally. Now that he's among friends and given normal food, he still gets the urge to hunt from time to time and prefers to eat meat raw.Languages
