Real Name: Ilya Svyatoslav
Ilya (the Russian form of Elijah) has managed to become something of a teenage heart-throb actor after starring in the “Sixth Form Musical” series of films.
Ilya’s abilities stem from top secret genetic experiments carried out in the late years of the Cold War by scientists in the USSR. Shortly after his birth he was mysteriously taken from the program and hidden, eventually being sent to America. It wasn’t until a trip to the hospital for a CAT scan when he was 15 that the latent genetic material became activated. The genetic material was, however, seriously degraded meaning that he only has partial control over his transforming ability, namely that he cannot instantaneously transfer from one state to another.
