Feron is a descendent and ancestor of a great and powerful Mage, too, named Feron. The elder Feron was born in an alternate reality Earth. Here he and the legendary Merlyn were both students, under the teachings of Necrom. Eventually Necrom would be swayed by the dark side and attempted to have his two pupils follow him. Amidst Necrom's journey to increase his vast powers to immeasurable levels he would have the trio visit the mainstream reality, Earth-616. Feron would see the error of his ways in following Necrom and would try to stop him.
While on Earth-616, Feron managed to tap into the primal cosmic energies of the Phoenix Force, thus becoming one of the first hosts for it. Feron would wield his new powers to battle his one time teacher and nearly destroyed him. While fighting Feron inflicted serious damage to the Earthly plane, and to the Phoenix as well. Amidst all the in fighting, Merlyn would disappear to unknown places where he would begin his legendary magical career. In the end Feron would decide to remain on Earth-616, dedicating his life to forgiveness. Here he would raise his children as guardians/sentinels against the inevitable return of the Anti-Phoenix, Necrom.
Feron was created by Alan Davis in 1992 and first appeared in Excalibur # 48.

Move over Feron, its Feron's turn
More than 1,000 years later in County Sligo, Ireland, the current heir to the original Feron's power was born. It would be here that Feron would be taught in the magical ways of his descendents. Now a teenager, Feron was very arrogant and socially awkward. Once fully trained, he would be the first line of defense against the eventual return of the Anti-Phoenix, Necrom. Until then, Feron would continue being raised and taught by the monks who resided in the monastery. According to his teaching, Feron could not touch the ground with his bare feet or else he would activate his host connection to the Phoenix Force. Due to this, he constantly wore bandages around his feet and always used his magics to have himself levitate in order to never touch the ground.
As prophesized, Necrom did return to Earth in an attempt to conquer it. Feron knew Necrom was arriving as he had finely tuned, magical senses. Prior to his battle he would need the power of the Phoenix Force. This is when, for the first time, Feron touched the ground with his feet, but nothing happened. Denied his rightful power, he would not simply and idly stand by. Instead, he followed the energies of the Phoenix Force and was led to Rachel Summers and the team of Excalibur. Feron would find that the reason he was denied his powers was because Rachel, using the codename Phoenix, who was already the current host of the Phoenix Force. Arrogant as he was, Feron felt that Rachel was unworthy of the power. But still, he would aid her and Excalibur in their battle against Necrom. In the end they would be successful, fending of the Anti-Phoenix, and having Feron join the team.
Excalibur & Beyond
Initially, Feron joined Excalibur because he wished to follow the Phoenix Force. He felt that if Rachel either failed or died, he could take over the mantle. This of course never happened, and yet he stayed on the team. Over time he began to trust his Excalibur teammates and didn't want to leave. He even chose to stay when Rachel was lost in the time stream and the Phoenix Force went with her. Small hiccups down the road would lead Feron to joining the Crazy Gang under the guise of the Executioner. They would attack Excalibur, but Feron's issue would resolve and he would return to his old teammates. He stayed with them until the very end. He was present at the wedding of Captain Britain and Meggan. This was when Excalibur officially disbanded and each of them went their own way. Feron's whereabouts are currently unknown.
