Cornelius Hagworth was born on March 23, 1942. His father was a scientist for the Germans in World War II. Soon after Cornelius was born, his mother died in a tragic experiment by his father. Cornelius' father was grieved by this and promised to perfect his experiment in the future. He was mad, much like Cornelius is today, and wanted to see his work through into the end. At age 15, Cornelius was experimented on by his father, which he didn't mind, having such a love for science at such a young age. He developed his powers because of this, and grew the ability to create inanimate objects to life. His father called him his 'greatest creation' rather than his own son, but Cornelius sitll didn't mind. After his father died, Cornelius decided to ignore his mutation, move to america, and attend Harvard universtiy. He was so advanced, the people at harvard awarded him with a full scholarship, and a position to teach there. He turned them down and decided to go to Yale University as well, but was unchallenged. By that time, he discovered his powers were not only Animation but Super Intelligence. He recreated his father's experiment, hoping to erase it, but it gianed his Camoflague abilities as well. Since he thought he was the only one of his kind. Cornelius grew pernamentally mad, even after meeting more mutants, he still considered himself weird. Cornelius eventually found the Xavier institute and decided to take the position as Science teacher.
Cornelius is a mad scientist and often says things that others question about and he is very crazy and kooky sometimes, making false assumptions about things. He likes playing with his clothes and hair at random times and will often laugh when there is tension or silence. He seems very peculiar but very friendly.
Cornelius is extremely vulnerable to telepaths, more than the average mutant. He doesn't do well with combat, or physical skills. He is also highly allergic to oranges and grapes. He doesn't like the outdoors at all and prefers to stay inside.
He is very old, with leathery skin, pure white hair, and wild brown eyes. He has big, bushy eyebrows and a large beard and mustache that are both white hair. He always wears lab coats, even on his time off, and enjoys playing with all the pockets on his coat.
