I simply must give it a shot... I figure you'll just turn her away if you don't like her or if there's no room for a girl

Em is a flirty, confident girl with a cheeky attitude and a very, very big heart to go with it. She likes people, despite her history, and has never had any problems making friends. She's a smart girl with good grades and a high standard for her own studies. She tends to take people at face value and takes a little time deciding if they are worth letting into her heart or not, but once you're there... She'd walk fire... uh... ice-water for you any day. Background:
On a dark November night in a small town in North Dakota, a young girl gave birth to a child on the steps of the town health care clinic. The frosted ground melted under her body as the child pushed its way into the world, screaming and blazing. The mother lay helpless, long exhausted from twelve hours of unassisted labor and her only thought was to get to the doctor to save the child. Her body tore with the flaming heat of a life not ready to calm down, a tiny but furious person who stayed alive only because of her smoldering hot skin when the mother faded and died. The next morning, people found the terrifying sight of the girl, alone on the steps and in devastating shape. The child was nowhere to be seen.
Meanwhile, a couple rode down the highway with the newborn. They were of her kind, but with no intention of keeping her as their own. They meant to take her to a man who was later known as Professor X, knowing the child would never be safe and happy in the small community it was born into. The couple didn't succeed in their plan, and following a strange turn of events, the child ended up in a home with three other mutant children who'd all been abandoned.
The 'parents' raised Em, then by the name Red, with brutal discipline till the age of five when their abusive behavior finally got attention and the children were taken away. Little Red got placed with a middle aged woman named Melody, a lovely, caring mutant with the remarkable ability to produce music from any biological object. She named the child Emily and gave her the last name Turner, her own name. Aunt Melody taught and trained Em to use and control her power from the very first day they had together. She believed strongly in mutant rights and the idea that their powers are a gift that shall not be wasted or taken for granted.
Fourteen years later, Em has gained some control of her power but the element of it makes it difficult and when angered or very upset she shifts without being able to stop it properly. Sometimes she manages to almost
stop it and then only her hands or hair begins to shift. Her powers bloomed at puberty as for many mutants, and Melody has tried her best to keep up and offer guidance, but now she's finally reached out to Xavier for help. Em's powers are simply too flammable (
) for her to be able to help anymore. What used to be heating of her skin and minor bursts of heat when angered, has now developed into what's described below. Em's mood has too much affect on the outbursts and the force of them is growing with every passing month. Both Melody and Em are hoping Xavier's school can provide the means for Em to control herself...
unknown, but does have an adopted aunt Melody, a mutant who took her in when she was a kid.Powers:
Her skin and hair heats up to the point of shifting into what can only be described as smoldering lava. She doesn't breathe fire or look on fire, but if she touches a flammable surface with her fingertips or palms, it
will catch fire. If she smacks her hands together it makes a small explosion, and her breath when in that state is tinged with ash. Her hair is the only part of her that actually looks like fire (from shoulders down) and the ends can cause accidental fires. (She keeps it tied or braided when she uses her power on purpose.)Power Limitations:
She's warm to the touch but not hot enough to burn a person who touches her unless she's very upset. Her power is muted by a cold enough surface or liquid. ("Take a cold shower!") Her skin is very sensitive/vulnerable for an hour or so after she shifts back to 'normal'.Hobbies and Interests:
Dancing, singing, ice-skating, snowboarding and boys. Not necessarily in that order
