|History: Sydney was the second child of Alexander and Rebecca Lennox who born in New Orleans yet was raised everywhere else. Her father's career kept his family on their toes yet Little Sydney loved being with her father and older sister and being able to see new areas and places but it grew on Rebecca's nerves and she had enough. Divorcing Alex, Rebecca took her children to Salem, Massachusetts. Rebecca met with old friends and became a drug addict. Alexander found out and gained custody of his children and moved to France with his father and mother. Sydney was enrolled into an art-focused school in France at age 12 but left soon after her powers began to manifest. Her family gave her sympathy and excepted Sydney and her older sister Christine to become the third generation of mutants in the Lennox family yet they weren't prepared for Sydney's powers. After convincing her family her powers were for real, it took two years to get used to them. Sydney then returned to a private school focusing on art and was determined to enroll in Atelier de Sèvres. However as she grew older the accidents caused by her powers grew worst and Sydney forced herself to be reclusive until she was invited to the Xavier Institute.|
