Walter Barrett was a businessman from Colorado, an owner of Barrett Supermart Chain. He was also the father of Sofia Mantega (Wind Dancer), although he had no knowledge about her existence until Miranda Mantega — Sofia'a mother — died and he was contacted by her family. Walter wasn't happy to learn that he had a teen daughter and even more unhappy that she was a mutant. When they first met he ordered Sofia to never use her powers and to not cause him any trouble. He treated her with cold indifference ever since.
Tired and saddened by his indifference, even on her birthday, Sofia eventually decided to cause a scene for him to finally notice her. She used her powers in the mall and was arrested for causing a lot of property damage. Walter was infuriated by her behavior, because it damaged his reputation. He decided to force his personal doctor to prove that Sofia wasn't his daughter and send her back to Venezuela. But before he could do any of that, Dani Moonstar arrived and enrolled Sofia at the Xavier Institute.
