Billy inadvertently killed a group of human patrons at the Cafe Des Artistes who were harassing Sylvie, on whom he had a crush. He took her "hostage" which led to a police standoff.
Rather than allow the situation to become a catalyst for anti-mutant strife in Mutant Town, Alexei Vazhin hired Sashenka Popova to assassinate Billy Bates. He then paid Sylvie and her father off to keep them quiet about the incident.
Osteokinesis: Offensive morphing power lets him sprout razor tipped spikes from his face, body, and right arm, fire these spikes as projectile bolts, and distort his left arm into a misshapen, extended form with elongated fingers and claws.
