After a near death experience, Johnathan Paris was removed from an abusive home and placed into the foster care system. The nature of his near death experience made him the subject of some medical study and after a time he was placed in therapy. At age sixteen he was in a car crash that by all accounts should have proved fatal, however he sustained little if any injury beyond a concussion. The driver's seat where he was sitting had been completely destroyed, and investigators could not determine how he had wound up outside of the vehicle when EMS arrived on scene, and deemed it a miracle that he survived.
He was recruited and taken into custody from the Foster care system and is still officially a ward of the state. John retains no ties to his biological family or foster families, his only personal item being the jacket his mother insisted he have, a World War 2 era bomber jacket that supposedly belonged to his grandfather.
