Harry Coumnas Began Feeling a Strange Connection with Metal When He Was 15 Harry Coumnas’ life was mired in complications before he was even born. While he didn’t realize it until much later in life, he was the son of a mutant. This affected him in many profound ways both directly and indirectly throughout his life. While much is known about his father, his mother kept a considerably lower profile. She kept her identity as shrouded as possible so not much is known about her background. What is known, however, is that she as involved in humanitarian work with the UN during various conflicts in the Balkans. This was a time when ethnic tensions were at a fevered level. For the most part, most of Harry’s life was fairly normal. His mother continued working for the UN as a correspondent and she never brought up the identity of her father and remained somewhat sequestered. It started when Harry was 14. His hair began changing color unexpectedly, turning from black to green. Harry went to a doctor, who assured him that it was just a rare pigmentation anomaly with his hair. Harry didn’t seem bothered by it, but then when he turned 15 another unexpected trait emerged. It started one day at school. While taking an exam that he did not study for, he noticed a paper clip moving towards him. Then when one of her peers tripped and fell next to him, the paperclip was flung across the room. Startled, Harry Coumnas began feeling a strange connection with metal. He started exploring this feeling on his own time and eventually learned that
he was a mutant with the ability to harness the power of magnetism. Overall, the extreme circumstances of Harry Coumnas’ life have helped create a unique psychological profile. That profile has allowed him to carry himself quite normally amongst others. This ability to have such a strong moral center and function normally gives him an uncanny strength.
