History

Quote1 Just because I'm inscrutable to you, doesn't mean I'm not human. Quote2
-- Silas Riley

Early Life

Silas Riley was born in the Valley of the Sun; Phoenix, Arizona to a single, albeit religious woman. His powers developed around the time of his 14th birthday, with his powers preventing him from allowing himself to feel the sun's UV rays. This thus forced his mother to recluse her son from the outside, going as far as to take him out of school and home school him instead. Cerebro was able to pick up the sudden mutant presence and pinpoint it. Silas joined Xavier's school shortly after with the codename Obsidian, due to the gem's midnight color.

    • Hacking: Silas has shown on more than one occasion to be adept at hacking into high-tech security systems.

Strength level

Silas has the average human strength of a teenager his age, height, and build who engages in a simple daily exercise routine. It is to be noted though this varies on the fact that Silas is somewhat underweight for his age/height and is smaller than he should be.

Weaknesses

Ever since his birth, Silas has been unable to let the sunlight touch his bare skin. If it does, he suffers severe burns and is unable to use his powers due to the intense pain he is suffering. This doesn't stop him from going outside during the day though, as he takes extra precaution by wearing smothering clothing and carrying a parasol around with him constantly.


Paraphernalia

Equipment: A specialized hood attached to his uniform and an everyday jacket meant to help reflect sunlight.
Transportation: Tesla Roadster (personal vehicle), X-Jet
Weapons: Weapons text
