Brann Driver


Brann Driver grew up in Washington Heights in a two bedroom apartment with his parents and as the middle child with two older siblings and three younger. His older siblings were barely around, and his parents were always working, which lead him to start taking care of his younger siblings, a brother and two sisters, from a young age. He was also quick in picking up Spanish as he grew up, with a majority of his neighbours speaking the language. He soon became fluent.

He was often getting in trouble at school for getting in fights. He didn’t always started them, but he was always getting into them, jumping in head first, with his hot headed reactions, without thinking. It usually had to do with bullies. He could never abide a bully, whether they were bullying him, his family and friends, or just some random kid on the streets.

It was when he was 16 that his powers first appeared and he also got permanently expelled from high school. He stepped in when a boy was around his age was bullying his younger sister. They started fighting when flames erupted from his hands, catching the other boy on fire. The boy ended up in the hospital with burns, though they ended up not being too bad, luckily for both of them. Brann was still expelled, however, despite eyewitnesses claiming that he never actually laid hands on the other boy when it came to setting him on fire.

Shortly after this event he was approached by someone named Agent Coulson who claimed to be a member of an agency named SHIELD. Apparently they’d heard how he could now create fire out of thin air. Agent Coulson also seemed to know of his school issues and how he was helping take care of his younger siblings. He was offered a chance to sign something they called a SHIELD Index Agreement. Essentially they’d give him some basic training, both in fighting and in how to control his newfound ability, and as long as he kept things in control, he could continue living his life in the outside world.

Brann agreed and signed the document. He took the training, which was more intense than he had imagined it was going to be, and he was let back out into the real world. He had a difficult time finding work. His fight with the other student made the news. Employers weren’t keen on having someone of his talents being around.

He started performing on the streets, acting as a fire eater and fire spinner, during his off hours if he’s working or as his primary way to make money when he’s not. His act would consist of him ‘eating’ the fire and then ‘spitting it’ onto the items he was spinning. He would then put on a show for, hopefully, a gathering crowd.The darker it gets, the more adventurous he gets with the fire, manipulating it to take various shapes, to grow and shrink, and dance in the darkness. His most popular show is usually near the carousel in Central Park.

Recent Events


Brann has a good heart, and often wants to do the right thing. However, he can be rather hot headed at the same time, letting emotions lead his decisions, leading him to sometimes be impulsive and run headfirst into an issue. Although signing the agreement with SHIELD as well as helping looking after his younger siblings has certainly tempered this behaviour, it’s still an integral part of who he is.

RP Hooks


Character Sheet

Let There Be Light!

He’s able to create fire out of nothing. It’s basically spontaneous combustion. He can create fire from just about any portion of his body, but his hands are the easiest, and what he uses the most to manipulate fire.

The Light Fandango

Whether it’s fire he’s created or fire that he’s come across (such as on a candle or in a fireplace), he can manipulate it, make it move, grow, and shrink to his whims.

The Mrs. Doubtfire

He can’t make the fire talk, but he can manipulate it to take a human or animal form and move around in that form.

Dragon Breath

Just like from his hands, he’s able to do so from his mouth. It’s a display worthy of a dragon when he does this.

Impervious to Flame

Neither his flame nor fire from external sources hurt him. They can still burn his clothes, but his body isn’t harmed by flame.
