History

Nightcrawler is a teenage student at the Xavier Institute who has a friendly nature. Mystique is his birth mother and Rogue is his foster sister. It is shown in the episode Shadowed Past that he was apparently experimented on by Magneto as an infant, and accidentally dropped into a river by Mystique. He used a holographic inducer shaped like a wristwatch to look human to go to school, making him appear as a normal teen.

He had a very close friendship with Kitty Pryde that even hints at a possible relationship, although he later ended up dating one of his non-mutant classmates, Amanda Sefton. When Mystique was turned to stone, he tried to be there for his mother and sister and became torn over the conflict between the two.[1]
