Character Details

1995 - David Justin Vaughn born to David Evan and Victoria Justine Vaughn.

2003 - Vaughn's little brother Victor Evan is born.

2004 - Victoria put Vaughn in piano lessons, without Vaughn's father's approval.

2005 - David finds out about the piano lessons and decides that it is too girly, and to make his son "man up" more, puts him in Tae-kwon-do. Despite Vaughn's lack of enthusiasm, he is made to stay in it.

2007 - Vaughn begs his parents for a guitar for birthday. While he was okay with the piano, his father's constant belittling of it took away most of his enjoyment of it, but his father approved more of him playing the guitar, as long as he stuck with the martial arts. The guitar became his sanctuary, getting lost in all of the sounds and tones it could make.

2008 - Vaughn's mutation started to manifest. Initially it started off as headaches whenever he was around a lot of noise. It was his brain trying to re-arrange the sounds into its unique way of interpreting it. Shortly thereafter, he started seeing the sound waves as distortions. More and more, he began to realize exactly what was going on. His parents dismissed his increasingly odd behavior as puberty, especially when he started becoming more and more withdrawn as he was afraid of how his family would react to him being a mutant.

2009 - Vaughn started helping out with the audio tech in his schools drama/theatre club. He started to realize that he could play with those sound waves to change them up. Slowly he started becoming more and more comfortable with his mutation and with who he was.

2010 - Vaughn told his parents that he was a mutant. It did not go as he had thought. David threw Vaughn out on the streets, telling him that he is no longer welcome and to never try to see his mother or brother again.
For weeks, Vaughn would sneak home when he knew his father wasn't home. His mother would give him food and what little money she could. Several weeks of this went by before he was caught by his father. David beat Vaughn almost to death and told him that if he ever saw him again that he'd finish the job. Luckily for Vaughn, the only thing broken was a couple of ribs, which were sore for nearly two months. A scar splitting his left eyebrow towards the outer side reminds him of the incident every time he looks in the mirror.
Eventually, Vaughn makes it to New York City, where he lived on the streets. It wasn't until he was on the streets the he realized that his sonic manipulation could be used against someone. He was being attacked by a handful of gang-bangers. They had him on the ground and were beating him pretty roughly. Before he realized what he was doing, he drew in his breath and all of the sound around him and let out a scream, hoping to get someone's attention and help. Instead he unleashed his sonic blast for the first time and sent the three thugs flying away from him. They street light behind them was raining down glass from where it had been shattered as well, like the windows of a car on the street. Vaughn got to his feet and took off running in fear that the authorities would blame him for everything.

2011 - Vaughn overhears an argument between a rave promoter and a dj, who walks out right before the rave, that was being held in an abandoned warehouse that Vaughn happened to be sleeping in. Vaughn tells the promoter that he can dj. After demonstrating his skills with the mixer, he agrees to let Vaughn do it, not really having much choice. It sets the beginning of Vaughn's reputation in the rave underground.

2012 - Vaughn living on his own, making a semi-successful living as a dj for clubs and underground raves. The rest of the time, he works as a delivery boy for a Chinese restaurant.
