THOMAS SNOW WAS A YOUNG HOT SHOT INVESTMENT BANKER WITH A CLICHE WOLF OF WALL STREET LIFE. JUDITH ROBERTS WAS A PRETTY YOUNG GIRL FROM OHIO WHO CAME TO NEW YORK CITY TO DO SOME MODELING. THEIR TOXIC RELATIONSHIP BEGAN AT A PARTY, WHERE JUDITH WAS JUST A PROP AND USED AS SO. AFTER A FEW YEARS OF BREAKING UP, MAKING UP, AND A TON OF WILD NIGHTS BETWEEN, THEY DECIDED TO GIVE UP THE PARTIES AND THE DRINKING AND THE DRUGS AND SETTLE DOWN. THOMAS BOUGHT A LESS-THAN-MODEST HOUSE IN LONG ISLAND AND JUDITH BECAME A STAY AT HOME WIFE AND, SOON AFTER, MOTHER TO TWO CHILDREN. LOUIS CAME FIRST. HE WAS SUCH A GOOD BABY, SO QUIET AND SMART AND SWEET, THAT THEY HAD A LITTLE GIRL, BEATRICE, JUST A FEW YEARS LATER. UNFORTUNATELY, BEATRICE WAS NOT SUCH A GOOD BABY. HER INCESSANT CRYING DROVE THOMAS TO DRINKING AGAIN, WHICH IN TURN DROVE A WEDGE BETWEEN HIM AND JUDITH, WHO WAS INTENT ON STAYING CLEAN. BY THE TIME LOUIS' EXCEPTIONALITIES WERE BEING RECOGNIZED IN SCHOOL, THOMAS NO LONGER LIVED WITH THE FAMILY.

SCHOOL WAS HARD FOR LOUIS. NOT BECAUSE HE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE MATERIAL, BUT BECAUSE HE UNDERSTOOD IT TOO WELL. THIS LEAD TO OFTEN BECOMING BORED OR UNINTERESTED IN LESSONS. WORST OF ALL, IT GARNISHED THE WRONG SORT OF ATTENTION FROM HIS CLASSMATES. GIVEN THE FACT THAT LOUIS WAS MUCH SMALLER AND SMARTER THAN HIS PEERS, GETTING BULLIED WAS UNAVOIDABLE. LOUIS BEGAN TO DEVELOP SARCASM AS A DEFENSE MECHANISM TO COUNTER ANYONE WHO POINTED OUT HIS POOR SOCIAL SKILLS, HIS ALWAYS PRISTINE (OLD MAN) CLOTHES, HIS LOVE OF ICE SKATING, OR HIS NEED TO SORT EVERYTHING. ONE PARTICULAR KID BULLIED LOUIS SO MUCH AND SO OFTEN THAT LOUIS EVENTUALLY HAD TO BE TRANSFERRED TO A DIFFERENT SCHOOL. HIS MOTHER DECIDED A SCHOOL FOR THE GIFTED AND TALENTED WAS THE BEST FIT, MUCH TO HIS FATHER'S CHAGRIN. THE CURRICULUM, TEACHERS AND STUDENTS WERE SUPERIOR IN EVERY WAY. LOUIS FLOURISHED. THERE, HE FOUND HIS LOVE OF MATH WAS LAUDED, NOT LAUGHED AT. THERE, LOUIS COULD FINALLY BE HIMSELF.

DESPITE BEING VERY ACCOMPLISHED IN A GIFTED SCHOOL, LOUIS FLOUNDERED IN COLLEGE. ACADEMICALLY HE WAS FINE, NOT AS GOOD AS HE COULD DO, GIVEN HIS INTELLIGENCE, BUT GOOD ENOUGH. IT WAS THE SOCIAL ASPECT THAT REALLY STUMPED HIM. WHILE EVERYONE WENT TO FRAT PARTIES AND ATE TOGETHER IN THE QUAD, LOUIS SPENT NIGHTS IN THE MATHEMATICS LAB AND SEEMED TO ANNOY EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HIS ROOMMATES WITH HIS DESIRE TO KEEP THINGS NEAT AND CLEAN. WINNING FRIENDS WAS HARD. UNTIL HE MET A VERY OUTGOING BOY THE NIGHT SOMEONE SET OFF THE FIRE ALARM IN THEIR DORM BUILDING AT THREE IN THE MORNING AND FORCED EVERYONE OUTSIDE IN THEIR PJS. THAT NIGHT THE BOY TOLD LOUIS THAT ALL THE LITTLE THINGS HE HAD BEEN TOLD WERE WEIRD ABOUT HIM WERE "CUTE" INSTEAD. THEIR FRIENDSHIP OF OPPOSITES WAS INSTANTANEOUS. IT MAY HAVE LOOKED ODD FROM THE OUTSIDE, A JOCK AND A NERD, BUT IT FELT PERFECTLY NATURAL TO THE BOTH OF THEM. LOUIS HELPED THE BOY WITH HIS GRADES AND THE BOY FORCED LOUIS OUT OF HIS BUBBLE, DRAGGING HIM TO FOOTBALL GAMES AND CAMPUS EVENTS AND EVEN TO THOSE FRAT PARTIES HE'D HEARD ABOUT. TOO MANY RED SOLO CUPS LATER (READ: ONE) AND LOUIS CONFESSED ALL THE THINGS THE BOY MADE HIM FEEL. HIS FIRST KISS WAS EVERYTHING HE IMAGINED AND MORE. IT WAS TRUMPETS AND ANGELS SINGING AND... IT CAME WITH A PUNCH TO THE MOUTH THAT HURT LIKE HELL BUT GOT THE POINT ACROSS. THE BOY DIDN'T FEEL THE SAME WAY.

THERE WAS NO MORE BOY AFTER THAT, NO MORE BOYS AT ALL. LOUIS DID WHAT HE DID BEST AND FILED ALL THOSE SORTS OF FEELINGS AWAY AND FOCUSED ON SCHOOL. HE WAS BETTER AT SOCIALIZING THANKS TO THE BOY THOUGH. SO HE MADE SOME NEW FRIENDS, BUT NO LONGER LOOKED FOR MORE IN THEM. HE DATED, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT GUYS WERE SUPPOSED TO DO, BUT ONLY WOMEN. ONLY BECAUSE THEY WERE SAFE. THEY DIDN'T MAKE HIS FEELINGS GO CRAZY OR HIT HIM AND, MOST OF ALL, IT WAS MORE ACCEPTABLE TO DATE THEM. LESS COMPLICATED IN EVERY WAY. OF COURSE THEY NEVER LASTED LONG, USUALLY ENDING WITH "YOU'RE A GOOD FRIEND BUT" OR "YOU NEVER REALLY OPENED UP TO ME" OR "SORRY BUT I WANT TO GET SERIOUS" AND LOUIS NEVER COMPLAINED. THEY WERE ALL BACKGROUND NOISE TO HIS ACADEMICS AND EVENTUAL CAREER THAT FOLLOWED.

NOTHING HE DID, NO ACCOMPLISHMENT OR AWARD OR GPA WAS EVER GOOD ENOUGH FOR HIS FATHER. LOUIS LEARNED QUICKLY THAT BEING PUT IN A "GIFTED" SCHOOL HAD ALL BUT CAUSED HIS FATHER TO WRITE HIM OFF AS DEFECTIVE. HIS SISTER DIDN'T FAIR ANY BETTER. HER ANTICS ONLY GOT WILDER WITH AGE, HER OUTLANDISH ACTS THE ONLY THING THAT EVER GARNERED ANY ATTENTION FROM THOMAS. THROUGH IT ALL THEIR MOTHER WAS THEIR ROCK. SHE WAS TENDER AND SWEET, LOVING AND PATIENT. WHEN SHE PASSED AWAY FROM CANCER THREE YEARS AGO, THE SNOW KIDS DEALT WITH EVERYTHING ALONE. THE FUNERAL, THE CREMATION, THE WAKE, IT WAS ALL UP TO LOUIS TO ORGANIZE, BUT THAT WAS OKAY BECAUSE ORGANIZATION WAS HOW HE COPED. BEATRICE COPED BY DROPPING OFF THE MAP TO GO FIND HERSELF HALFWAY AROUND THE WORLD. LOUIS BURIED HIMSELF IN WORK, USING WHAT HIS MOTHER TAUGHT HIM TO BECOME THE BEST POSSIBLE TEACHER HE COULD BE TO THE NEXT GENERATION. IT WAS IMPORTANT TO HIM TO KEEP HIS CLASSROOM A SAFE SPACE. ESPECIALLY NOW THAT THERE'S SUPERHEROES RUNNING AROUND.

NOWADAYS, LOUIS TEACHES MATHEMATICS TO MIDDLE SCHOOLERS IN THE PALO ALTO SCHOOL DISTRICT. HE'S SLOWLY TRYING TO HONOR HIS MOTHER'S LAST LESSON AND BE TRUE TO HIMSELF AND STOP TRYING TO BE WHO HE THINKS HIS FATHER WANTS HIM TO BE. HE'S COME OUT TO HIS CLOSE FRIENDS, BUT CLAIMS HE REALLY DOESN'T HAVE MUCH TIME TO DATE. THE TRUTH IS HE ALREADY TRIED AND IT WAS A MESS. NOW HE'S NOT SURE ANY GUYS WANT TO DEAL WITH A "GIFTED" MATH TEACHER WITH HAS A WHOLE LOT OF DADDY ISSUES AND BASICALLY ZERO EXPERIENCE AS AN OUT GAY MAN. IT'S COOL THOUGH. HE'S PROBABLY GONNA GET A CAT SOON. MAYBE.

Robert "Bobby" Louis Drake was born in Long Island, New York to William and Madeline. When Bobby hit puberty, his mutant powers gradually began to manifest. He was constantly feeling cold and shivering, producing mild amounts of cold that he couldn't fully control. His powers openly manifested for the first time while he was on a date with a girl named Judy Harmon... (β›„)
