Ash (Ashton Harris)
Ashton grew up on a horse ranch north of Houston, Texas with his parents, older sister Melanie and his twin sister Lucy. He gained a great fondness in horse riding and often preformed in local rodeos.
Ashton and his older sister Melanie were at home while Lucy and his parents were away. For reasons only known to Ashton, a fire broke out in the home. The family returned from their trip in time to see the ranch home engulfed in flames. Lucy entered the burning building against her parents pleas and using her new found mutant powers saved Ashton. Melanie could not be saved and her remains were never to be found in the charred building.
Lucy, now the eldest living sister by 6 minutes, has taken the leadership role of the pair. She is protective of her brother and accepts his feelings of responsibility of the house fire. Ashton, now a mutant as well, has become soft spoken and reserved. He never speaks of the events that started the blaze and rarely ever admits to Melanie's existence. He wears a single red bandana, leg or armband in remembrance of his dead sister and if forced will only say of his dead sister's existence, "She will always be with me." He is also suffering from insomnia.

Ashton has begun a crusade against crime under the alter ego "Ash" in Millennium City's Westside, without his protective twin sister Lucy's knowledge. He uses this time to practice mastering his flame control. He has also begun a public speaking tour at local schools as his alter ego, regarding fire safety. His volunteer time is a sort of penance for the death of his sister.
Ashton has the ability to project extremely hot red flame from distance. He can also engulf himself in fire without injury. He has manifested flying ability with the aid of swirling ashes.
