History: Not much is known about Twitch. He discovered his psychic abilities at an
earlier than normal age and hid it from most people. He was born during the
Second World War, and has traveled abroad ever since he was 18, when he joined
the Royal Air Force. As one of the earliest known mutants, he was trained to
hone his powers by the government, on the condition that he was allowed to be
studied by government doctors throughout his life. He became a “free-agent” (as he put it) after his tour of duty
and traveled to many different countries, to study the cultures, performing
jobs for his government on the side (Intelligence gathering, undercover
assignments, etc.), all of which are classified. As a result of his travel studies, he is a devout mystic, combing
many points of different societies, cultures, and religions into his own
While studying in Africa when he was 22, Twitch
encountered the Shadow King. He
challenged Twitch to battle him on the psychic plane, to which Twitch
accepted. Not knowing the true power
the Shadow King wielded, Twitch was outclassed and only managed to escape the
battle when he discovered he could teleport himself through the plane, out of
the Shadow King’s reach.
When he was 23, he had a child out of wedlock with
an American woman named Janine Alwood.
Alwood raised the child, Gillian, until she was 15, when she ran away
from home in search of her father. She
ended up finding him in India, where they established a wonderful relationship.
She became anthropologist, traveling the world like her father before her, she
hid the fact that she was a mutant as well and left to continue her work before
she could reveal to her father what her powers were. Twitch has had not contact
with her from then on.
Not much else is known about Twitch because he
never stayed in any place for very long.
The secret as to why he does not age normally is unknown, as it does not
appear to be a mutant related power. His profile and last name have been classified
by the British gov’t for safety reasons.
During his early fifties, he returned to Europe and took up care of his
family home near the Irish Coast.
For a brief stint he was a member
of Excalibur, but left to stay with his daughter. Before leaving, he threatened Brimstone to leave Excalibur alone.
He turned up next in America,
helping X-Factor with a time-travel mission.
Personality: Twitch carries with him what may seem an unpleasant outlook on
life, but in actuality, he is a deep thinker, and a scholar. He cares for those younger than him, like
they are his sons and daughters.
He has a good sense of humor, but
doesn’t stand for horseplay during serious situations. He also is well known
for his ability to out-drink anyone. The nickname “Twitch” is derived from the
head twitch he has when unleashing a psionic blast. His closer friends call him Noah.
