Don't knock the cafeteria. It is free and it is awesome.

Oscar Silva[1] is a Renegade who can make smoke.

Early Life

Oscar died in a fire when he was five years old.

His mother was down in the basement of their apartment building doing laundry when their neighbor fell asleep, and her cat knocked over a candle she had left burning. The whole place went up in flames in what seems to be minutes. Oscar was in his bedroom when he heard people screaming. He saw the smoke, but he was too petrified to move. By the time he had the courage to try and get out of the apartment, the fire was coming up the stairs. Not knowing what to do, Oscar stood frozen in the hallway and watched the smoke until it was too thick for him to see and he couldn't breathe. That's how the Renegades found him.

Tsunami put out the fire and handed Oscar off to Thunderbird, who flew him over to the hospital. Although Oscar didn't have a pulse by then. While they were all mourning his death, Oscar was having a dream. He dreamed that he was standing on the top of his apartment building and was breathing in all the smoke into his lungs. Once he stopped breathing in and exhaled, Oscar woke up.

It had been ten minutes since Oscar was brought to the hospital - long enough to legally consider him dead. When Oscar exhaled, smoke came out of his mouth.



Oscar had light brown skin and thick, dark hair. Because he was born with a bone disease, he has to use a cane for walking.[1]


Oscar enjoys showing off his powers and flirting around with anyone.
