On a cold January night a boy and a girl were born, a pair of fraternal twins. Robert Marvin Binx was the boy. The pair were born to Franklin and Anastasia Binx, a lawyer and a nurse respectively. Childhood was relatively normal for the two. They lived a nice middle class life in the city of Schenectady, NY. While their parents were at work, and when the children were not at school, they were often left with their maternal grandparents, who had immigrated from Russia years earlier. Their grandparents, however, refused to speak English at home, forcing the children to become fluent not only in English, but in Russian as well.

Robert was a generally happy child. Growing up, he did well in his studies. He even went so far as being accepted into pre-med at Columbia University in New York City, which made his parents very proud. It was during his first year that his mutation began to exhibit. He had planted a very small Snake Plant and placed the pot on the window sill of his dorm. And, since he'd heard talking and singing to plants help them grow, he brought out his guitar, which he'd been taking a few lessons on, and start to sing to the plant, making up a song to encourage it to grow.

Low and behold, the plant physically started to grow larger before his eyes. He was understandably shocked. The next day, he bought another plant and tried again, finding the same results. This started him on his journey of learning and expanding all he could do with plants, even growing them from seedlings, and, through the years, causing them to float and to move at his command.

During medical school, he took a liking to both family medicine and psychiatry, deciding to take on a dual specialty, often finding that the two were interconnected in many ways. It was during his studies in psychiatry and human relationships that he began to understand latent emotions that he had felt within himself. For a short while, he had come to believe himself to be, what was called, bisexual, as he was attracted to both sexes. However, he came to realize that he was, in fact, pansexual, as he did not care what a person's sex or gender, or lack thereof, was, nor whether a person was transgender. What he was drawn to was the person.

It wasn't until he was studying the relationships of American Bohemians, as well as some 'counter-culture' groups, that he would find another idea that he'd wondered about but had lacked a term for. It was the idea of 'Free Love'. Being able to not only love who you want, but love multiple people at the same time. Of course he'd want to make sure everyone was aware of everyone else, and he'd have to be careful with whom he spoke about these interests, but it was something that he felt was right. Or, at least it was something that was right for him.

When he finally graduated medical school, he set out to help those in need. He soon found an established medical practice that was looking for another doctor to join. Having the dual specialty of family medicine and psychiatrics made him stand out to the other doctors of the practice, as it would give their practice a distinct advantage of being able to offer psychiatric evaluations, should the need arise.

IC Events


  • Let There Be Life: Binx has the ability to control and manipulate plants. One of the perks is the ability to cause accelerated growth. He can cause a tiny, near invisible seedling, to grow into a fully grown plant in a matter of moments, depending on size and complexity of the plant. If it's a flower, it can take just a few seconds. One of the largest trees in the world? Perhaps upwards to ten minutes for it to be a good, large size. The greater the number of plants, and variety of plants, he's causing to grow, the longer it takes.
  • Life of the Party: He can make plants sway and wiggle around, as if dancing. He can do this to control the entire plant or just portions. With this, as well, he can make even trees bend, to a certain extent, and cause their branches reach down, which is useful in a defensive situation.
  • Should I Stay or Should I Go: He can make plants uproot themselves and walk about. The bigger the plant, the more difficult it is for him, and with larger plants, there will be more varying degrees of success.
  • I Believe I Can Fly: He has the uncanny ability to cause plants, and their seeds, to float and move around as he pleases.
  • Botanical Awareness: Binx is able to detect plants within a mile and a half radius. The farther away the plant, the more difficult it is for him to control.
