Cain McCormick was abandoned by his mother at an early age, anonymously left at the Westchester-Temporary Home for Destitute Children in White Plains, New York. Raised there until his tenth birthday, he was adopted by a number of families, though they never seemed to work out. At age ten however he was taken in by Colin McCormick, adopted, and at first all seemed to be well.

Colin was something of a recluse, his home a small brownstone in Queens in a sleepy neighborhood that dated back to the early days of the city. Over the course of the next few years Cain started to experience health issues that came and went with little rhyme or reason. All of this came to a head on his thirteenth birthday when he collapsed and lapsed into a coma. Unbeknownst to him, Cain's adopted father was a magus of some small power, and a fairly accomplished alchemist who'd been experimenting on Cain to see if he could awaken the boy's latent faerie blood. The various substances he'd been exposed to eventually poisoning him.

Colin panicked. He couldn't risk Cain dying on him, the investigation would have been potentially disastrous and ruined him. His solution was to pack the comatose lad up and dump him in the woods some few hours from the city. Fortunately for Cain his adopted father dumped him near a faerie ring, and one of the faeries sensing the boy's fey blood intervened and used her magic to stabilize him. When he woke, Cain found that he felt much better, and that's when things got interesting as he found he was possessed of incredible speed.

It took some months, but he eventually learned enough control that he was able to return New York city, to Queens and confronted his adoptive father. Overjoyed to see the boy - not for the boy's sake, no, for the power he could sense brimming in him, Colin sought to bind Cain and the resulting altercation left Colin dying and Cain in the hospital.

Years passed, Colin having sold McCormick House and all he'd inherited. He ended up in the system but eventually was of legal age to claim his legacy. The monies were used to find him a home, and paid for his schooling. Working now as an EMT he has been training himself in the use of his powers as well. He's even made himself a simple costume and adopted the super-name 'Celerity'. He's not sure where life will take him, but it has definitely gotten a LOT interesting! Basically of good heart, he uses his powers mainly to help those in need.
