Unknown High School, The Young Guardians
High School Level
"You are the leader of the Young Guardians, are you not?"
"Well, I wouldn't say I'm the leader, because I would not consider my friends to be my underlings."
Patrick Donovan was the unofficial leader of the Young Guardians. He was the son of Martha and Michael Donovan and the older brother of Tara Donovan.
Personality and Traits
Patrick Donovan was a caring person who valued the well-being of those around him. He greatly dislikes it when innocent individuals are abused by the corrupt and would do whatever he could to help those in need, such as when he saved Tinisha Dolaira from a group of muggers. Despite the considerable power he had at his disposal, he attempted to maintain a sense of modesty. He believed in equality amongst his comrades and did not consider himself the leader of their group despite the public's opinion. However, even though he had a generally decent demeanor, Patrick carried a powerful hatred towards the school bully, Brick Baxter, who tormented his friends and himself on a daily basis. He also is in love with Tinisha, willing to do whatever was necessary to make her feel comfortable with living in the modern world.
Powers and Abilities
After being exposed to the Genesis Spell, Patrick gained potent fire-based powers, which included:
Pyrokinesis: Patrick is able to manipulate and generate fire that is hot enough to melt metal. When he draws strength from his anger and hatred, the inferno he generates takes the form of a dragon of golden flames. The reason to this, which Tinisha pointed out, is because the fire that Patrick creates is the same kind of energy that dragons breathed from their mouthes, which can reach temperatures equivalent to the surface of the sun.
Heat Vision: The first power Patrick demonstrated was the ability to generate powerful beams of intense heat that was hot enough to nearly cremate a human being, such as when Patrick unintentionally immolated Brick Baxter.
Heat Absorption: Patrick has the unique ability to absorb any form of heat to augment his physical strength, durability, and stamina to superhuman levels. The effects of this ability seem permanent and Patrick would gradually increase his strength as he continues to absorb heat. The overall strength he gains is considerable, since he was able to nearly defeat the powerful Cyber Shadow one-on-one.
