Piotr Rasputin was born on a farming community in Lake Baikal, Siberia. He had an older brother Mikhail who would go on to be a cosmonaut, who "died" during glorious solo space mission. After the death of his brother, which hit him terribly hard, his little sister Illyana was born. Like any older brother, Piotr was ridiculously protective of Illyana, and one particular incident with a runaway tractor meant Piotr was forced to leave the collective. Thankfully a man named Charles Xavier recruited Piotr to his X-Men, where he learned to use his mutant powers to fight evil and occasionally break through a wall Kool-Aid man style. Not that Piotr ever understood the reference but Kurt and Bobby assured him it was hilarious.

Throughout his time on the team Piotr has been through a lot. He has faced inter dimensional beings of great power and mediocre humans of little intelligence. He has had his powers augmented, been trapped in steel form, been trapped in human form, been trapped in a halfway form that was ever changing, etc. He has made the decision to kill villains when it comes to protecting those he loves, and he has killed without meaning to. He has taken breaks from the team, breaks from relationship, breaks even from being Piotr Rasputin, but they never last. Piotr Rasputin is an X-Man, until the day he dies, and probably long after that if the rest of teammates are any indicator.

Recent Events


Piotr is an older brother. His relationship with his brother shaped him in ways he couldn't imagine and it has become a defining point for him in ways he will never fully realize. He cares for those littler than him (e.g. most everyone) and wants to protect everyone he can. He cares deeply about his family (this includes nearly all X-related folks at this point in his mind) and especially his sister. He will do whatever is necessary to keep them safe, including terrible things. Piotr is otherwise a very gentle artistic soul who would love nothing more than to live peacefully and develop his art. Piotr has faced many hardships in his life but still hasn't come up with many healthy methods for coping with grief or loss, it tends to throw him into a dangerous spiral, more so than others.

RP Hooks

X-Man Piotr is a recognizable member of the X-Men, particularly when in his transformed state.

Shakedown Piotr works as a bouncer at the Shakedown club in mutant town, and is a part of the mutant underground helping mutants and metas in need hand in hand with Rictor.

Deadpool Piotr occasionally dragged into madcap adventures on account of his soft spot for Wade Wilson. How did Piotr end up in this whacky, ridiculous scene? Deadpool. That's how.


Character Sheet

ORGANIC STEEL FORM: Piotr is able to shift his entire body into a metal that he commonly refers to as organic steel. In reality the toughness of this metal is far beyond anything in the steel category. He is able to transform into his steel form and back in the blink of an eye and with very little concentration or effort. He can stay in his steel form indefinitely if need be. When he transforms his height and muscle mass also increase making him an even larger metal giant version of himself. While transformed he does not require food, water or even oxygen to survive.

SUPER DURABILITY: Piotr is able to withstand a beating like almost no other. He can withstand blunt force blows from the likes of Superman, well live through them at any rate. He can withstand wide ranges of temperatures down to near absolute zero or inferno blazes. He can survive without oxygen in a vacuum or underwater. He can take a missile strike with little more than a grunt. He is tough, even tougher than he is strong.

SUPER STAMINA: Piotr can last for days in his steel form even exerting maximum effort. His body??s unique chemistry allows him to not feel the effects of fatigue for far, far longer than a normal human. He can battle hordes of enemies for days on end and while he might grow mentally tired or impatient, his body can just keep going.

SUPER STRENGTH: Piotr is strong normally, but when in his steel form he can lift nearly 100 tons. He can trade blows with some of the strongest in the universe. He can lift full battleships or buildings. He has routinely held up ridiculously sized things to stop them from collapsing. Seriously, that seems to happen a lot.
