Hakeem was a young man born to an average family in a bustling urban metropolis, to a mechanic father and a biologist mother, picking up an aptitude for machines from his father, and an interest in science from both parents. He always felt as connected to machines and technology almost as much as he did people, and discovered his gift for technopathy after helping his father fix up an old antique car he now dubs 'Suzie.'

Currently a student at Amell Academy


A rather quiet, and reserved type, prefers books and burying his face in a computer screen, but enjoys the company of others from time-to-time. Is highly intelligent, but feels he needs to not show too much of it out of fear of intimidating and alienating himself from others.


  • Has recently made friends with Dynaboy
