If there's one thing that can be said about Shatterstar, it's that he's an odd bird to be sure. He has a somewhat obsessive personality, treating his body like a temple and training himself for combat far above and beyond what one might expect of such a new addition to Xavier's School for the Gifted. There are indications he's been training since he was very young; it's difficult to tell how much of his incredible strength and agility is due to his training and how much is due to his mutant abilities. His hollow bones only increase his agility and his healing factor only increases his endurance. The mental abilities that accompany his physical abilities make him a fast learner and adapter to new environments.

His favorite weapon is a pair of long swords that he's rarely without; he has a certain confidence and courage while wielding them that he is loath to give up. Shatterstar's pretty cagey about his past; it's possible that he grew up on the streets of New York and that his training was in response to the threats to mutants thereupon. He doesn't seem to be jaded much, though; his philosophical stance is simply that his past is less important than the achievements to be gained in the future. He does have a pretty anarchic and rebellious streak that's totally contrary to his sense of honor; to him, honor lies with individuals and not with governments, and ends tend to justify means. Despite this perhaps headstrong nature, he's a fairly charismatic and gifted leader and an excellent strategist.

Edit: To fix character encoding issues.
