At birth, Christopher Knox was taken away from his parents after testing positive for having Z-Type blood. It was later revealed that C.R.O.S.S, (Critical Reinforced Strike Squad) a secrete U.S government operative group were kidnapping children at birth because of their rare Z-Type blood. The children that were taken at birth were being kept in secrete underground base camps scattered across Twin City. The explanation for the missing children was that they had all died at the fault of an unknown contagious disease at birth, thus giving them reasons to keep the bodies of the children. In reality the children were kept alive and hidden away from the public. The first cases of Z-Type children were kept alive to be vigorously experimented on, that usually ended in death. Skin is believed to be one of the first Z-Types and is also believed to be badly burned or scarred due to the malicious experiments he suffered upon as a child. After surviving the treatments, he was trained as a weapon by C.R.O.S.S, in hopes that he could be the start of a Z-Type army. After the public found out about the Z-Types, riots scorched across the secret bases, freeing the captives by the hundreds. By the time Knox was released he was recorded to be 22 and physically and mentally scarred beyond repair. After his release, Knox disappeared from sight till "The Great Panic". After Twin City was quarantined under Martial Law and began to succumb to the evil that surrounded it, Knox came out to fight for The Resistance, a Z-Type superhuman group dedicated to protecting the public from C.R.O.S.S agents and harmful Z-Types alike, at any costs necessary. The public began naming the unknown subjects with code names and Knox received the alias "Skin" after witnesses claimed he had no skin under his battle suit. Knox embraced the name and carved each letter of the name on the jagged edges of the shuriken he carries around on his back. Knox is known to be very impulsive and reckless driven by anger and vengeance and the need to kill. He is infamous for killing C.R.O.S.S agents on sight and should not be taken lightly unless armored correctly. Without Knox's Shuriken, Knox is deemed powerless as far as Z-Types go. Being a Z-Type, Knox already has acute senses and other improved human abilities such as increased reflexes and awareness by default, but Knox's main source of power comes from his weapon which he controls via magnetic manipulation (able to control metal with his mind). It is unknown why Skin can only use this ability to control his shuriken and not other metals around him.
