Terry Sorenson was the son of a pair of research scientists. His mother, Margay, rose to great success as an expert in the Natural Sciences, while his father, David, remained obscure in the field of Thermodynamics because his theories were too radical to be accepted. David Sorenson became increasingly frustrated and eventually began to physically take his anger out on his wife. In time, after a day spent in his lab with a bottle of bourbon, David was killed in an explosion of uncertain origin. Terry was close by his father's lab at the time of the explosion and was mutated into a being composed of both fire and ice.
Margay Sorenson took a leave of absence from teaching at Bard and tried to reconstruct David's notes in an effort to cure Terry but met with failure after failure. When money for equipment ran out, Terry began to steal what they needed. He became more bitter with each failure, as he progressively mutated, and the raging energies within him pushed him to the brink of insanity.
