Nightcrawler (AoA)
REAL NAME: Kurt Darkholme
OCCUPATION: Adventurer, freedom fighter
KNOWN RELATIVES: Raven Darkholme (Mystique, mother), Abyss (Horseman of Apocalypse, half-brother, presumed dead)
EDUCATION: High school

HISTORY: Kurt Darkholme lived a lonely childhood in the German countryside. Never allowed to interact with human children, he didn’t know his demon-like appearance might be jarring to others. With his mother Mystique often gone on secret missions for Magneto, Kurt was left to fend for himself. It was not until Apocalypse appeared that the townspeople rose up against him. A group of villagers stormed the house and knocked Kurt out before he could teleport. Kurt was to be sacrificed in a bizarre religious ritual to send all mutant demons back to Hell until Mystique, Magneto and Quicksilver, stormed the church. Mystique gunned down the humans who kidnapped her son before Magneto could stop her. Kurt was unable to deal with the sight of his mother’s ferocity and teleported away. Upon his return, Quicksilver informed him that his mother had asked Magneto to look after him. Kurt spent the next few years proving himself as a member of the team. Ironically, after seeing the world and the terror it had become in the hands of Apocalypse, Nightcrawler became one of Magneto’s most deadly agents.

In the final days of Apocalypse’s rule, Magneto sent Nightcrawler to find Destiny, a woman who could see into the future, in order to confirm story of a better reality. Located in a place called Avalon, Nightcrawler would have to reunite with his mother to find her. Nightcrawler and Mystique made their way to Avalon where they formed a small group of mutants who nicknamed themselves X-Calibre. The group located Destiny and prevented the destruction of Avalon by an operative of Apocalypse named the Shadow King. After returning with Destiny, Nightcrawler and the X-Men stormed Apocalypse’s base in order to free Magneto and his son. Mystique used the confusion of the battle to disappear. Kurt recently reunited with members of X-Calibre who have been helping him search the world for Mystique. Magneto called Nightcrawler back to help him repair the damage done to the world by Apocalypse, but it is obvious his mind remains on finding his missing mother.
