History:
Lin was born in a small town outside Tokyo to two perfectly normal parents. He led a normal child hood, going to school and living life just like any of the other millions on the small island of Japan. It wasn't until his sophmore year in highschool that thing took a turn for the unusual. Lin managed to tick off the school bully by accidently bumping into him. The bully challenged him to fight after school which Lin reluctantly agreed to after some name calling from the bully. Lin was very nervous as the others surrounded him and the bully. The bully came at him and at that moment Lin's mutation manifested; Lin melted into a puddle of water. This scared most of the other kids and the bully as well. After they had ran off Lin managed to pull himself together and Ran off for home. He showed his parents what he could do and his mom feinted. Scared to go back to school, even to go outside, Lin stayed home for several days. After that a small miracle occured in a man who showed up at their front door in a wheel chair. Prof. Xavier explained about his special school and after hearing about both Lin and his parents agreed that he should go. The next day Lin boarded a plane bound for New York.
