Daniel was born to a loving and energetic mother and a quiet but supporting father. As a child, Daniel's Mother would regale him with stories about good, evil, heroes, villains and the daring conflicts and struggles that regularly happened in the defense of Liberty, Peace, and Order. In particular was the special Crisis response team which had a duo of heroes who back to back would swing wildly into the jaws of hell, fight cruelest of villains and risk life and limb to save lives. These were Ortega and Sidestep, and together it seemed like nothing could stop them.


It didn't take Daniel long to figure out his mother was Ortega, Really it wasn't hard, she knew classified information about those events, She hadn't actually changed much from her pictures from years ago, Her name is literally Ortega and if that wasn't enough Daniel searched the web and most of her Hero information including her real name and birth date was registered on a public record. He also deducted that sidestep was likely his father although he had his doubts as the hero was registered dead more than ten years before he was born.


And so Daniel at the tender age of nine would commit himself to making the world a better place as his parents did before him. Since Daniel was a regular human he knew that there was no way he could easily out match a super and so he trained. At first he tried to join a Dojo in Emerald city but found fighting to not be his strong suit and so he signed up for gymnastics instead, He devoted his free time tinkering with electronics while learning physics and climbing on the rooftops of the nearby buildings(Which got him into a lot trouble).


A few weeks after his sixteenth birthday, Daniel’s parents decided to move to freedom city as they were both offered jobs with lucrative salaries there. Daniel was excited to move to a wonderful city filled with heroes and villains alike but a month after arriving and transferring to his new school his powers began to manifest. The aspiring Hero was walking through the hallways to his class when he saw a confrontation starting between a group of delinquents and a younger boy. A punch was suddenly thrown with Daniel's first instinct being to rush in to save the boy and so he gladly threw himself between the bully to take any other hits and defend the kid. He succeeded, of course, and the young student was able to flee quickly but before he knew it Daniel was on the floor getting wailed on and curb stomped. He had the daylights kicked out of him and by the time he did get to class he was red, black and blue.


After a week of laying low because of the fight, Daniel spotted the same group of bullies trying to pick a fight in a go mart parking lot with a blind elderly man. Glutton for punishment as he was Daniel tried to reason with them until one of the students pulled out a knife and in fear, for the old man’s life, Daniel screamed for him to stop. Strangely enough, The bully’s face went deadpan and froze in place, Daniel asked the other two in a stern but polite voice to leave. They gave identical wooden expressions and left peacefully.


Daniel tried commanding a nearby bird and then a squirrel and when they all listened to his orders he concluded he had powers. He pondered this new and life changing discovery but all he felt was “I have powers now… Neat. I'm sure this is a sign for me to go patrol the streets for crime? I really should I'm probably ready right?” So Daniel decided it was time to roam the streets as a proper hero. He Googled how to make DiY Gadgets from the internet, Donned a loose collection of random clothing and tied on a bunch of belts and satchels to himself just to look cool.
