Full name: Cameron Reese
Code name: Brickhouse
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 105 lbs
Hair: Long, jet black
Eyes: Ice Blue
Distinguishing Features: She has always been fit and athletic,
this maybe because of her Mutant abilities. She has as ferocious
appetite and loves to eat. At first glance her blue sapphire
colored eyes are and light freckles are certainly the most distinguished
physical characteristics other than the perfect athletic form.
*Cam loves to work on anything mechanical. From Cars to old
Refrigerators has had always the knack to fix things. She picks it
up quickly and has had this natural mechanical affinity for years.
*Loves any type of physical sports or athletic hobbies. Physical
contact is always a bonus.
*Considered a tomboy and will never be a girlie girl. Her outward
appearance certainly says otherwise.
Arriving at XI, Cam has developed a cocky attitude. The fact that
she's been put into this school has made her resent her family and most
people around her. It certainly has given her attitude to the
point of being over confident and zealous. The fact is that her
own family threw her out to the curb to be picked up by this School of
Gift Weirdoes kind of leaves a bad taste in her mouth.
I wouldn't say she's passive aggressive but more like aggressive is
certainly a better description. Perhaps it's the onset of her new
found abilities that has caused this attitude change, or the fact she's
fed up at being at the end of the proverbial beat stick, who knows?
Before her powers she never thought of herself as a looker, and did
little to get noticed, but now that her abilities have given her an
almost invulnerable state she has become more self conscious of her
appearance. Could be the side effects of her new found abilities? Or the
fact that she is for once, enjoying the hell out of them? But one
thing is for sure, last thing she's worried about is what someone else
thinks of her.

Power: Cam has demonstrated superhuman strength, endurance, and
formidable resistance to physical injury. However, the extent and
limitations of her abilities have yet to be determined.
Background: Cam's life has always been a chaotic
spiral. Her parents died in a car crash when she was 8. It
was soon after she moved into her Uncle and Aunts home.
They quite loved the new addition to their home, treating their niece as
one of their family. Despite the resentment from Jenni, her
Cousin, Cam quickly picked up working around the family own Garage that
her Uncle and Dad use to run.
This caused tension between Cam and Jenni since her Dad obviously
favored Cam for this reason. Cam always was in the Garage learning
how to fix cars while Jenni was more worried about what to wear than
being a grease monkey. But the jealousy was eating Jenni up, so she
decided to get even with the little suck up.
One evening while Cam was working under a lift Jenni thought it would be
funny to play around with the hydraulic controls. Little did she
know that because of years of usage the fluid lines had worn down.
Jenni's prank turned horribly wrong when the car came crashing down onto
Screaming, Jenni watched in horror as the car didn't crash into the
floor crushing Cam underneath. It stood still, as Cam was using
her strength to hold the vehicle at bay. With a loud grunt, Cam
pushed the vehicle right where Jenni was standing awe struck.
The heavy truck fell towards Jenni where she tumbled backwards only to
have it fall upon her legs crushing them instantly. Meanwhile Tom
heard the cries from the office and quickly rushed out to see his niece
lift the car off Jenni and into the garage door. He rushed
forward, not hearing the explanations that Cam was speaking.
It happened quickly. Cam being ignored as her Cousin was quickly
rushed by ambulance to the hospital. They didn't speak to her for
a couple of days while Jenni was recovering in the emergency room.
It wasn't a surprise to Cam when her Aunt finally came up to her room.
But she didn't come alone. With her walked in a tall redhead
woman. She smiled softly as Cam gave her a look. It had been two
Cam has had any interaction with anyone. The woman introduced
herself as Jean Grey, a Teacher from Xavier School.
Jenni had told her parents everything. That Cam freaked out and
threw the car at her. Even if it was an obvious lie, Cam knew all
what it meant. They were assigning her to this school of freaks,
where Cam would learn to control her anger and her new found abilities.
Little did anyone know the truth, but for now it didn't matter.
It was a way to leave everything behind and start something new, even if
it was only for a short time. Cam had to figure out where her life
was taking her and this was the opportunity to do so.
