Fictional biography

Collector card: Back-105's Diary Entry # 152

How long as it been ?

Since the day I was created in PIT facility, I knew I was different. Every other Proto-Insectclone back there has no desire of their own; they follow orders, do training and kill each other every day. They don't even want their own name.

But I want to be different. I want to have a name, I want to be unique, and I be free.

Today I finally acquired my own name – Backfiery. I am no longer Back-105...I AM BACKFIERY ! Yet, I still do not feel unique. With these new powers, I can proceed, and when the “Object” is retrieved, I can finally make myself unique, very soon.....

I can't wait for that day to come.

FansProject web site: The quickest of his brothers, Backfiery was recovered and converted by the powerful Skycrow. Like his brothers, ThunderShred and Stormbomb, he acquired the art of Ninjutsu and adopted the philosophy of Godai to harness the power of "Fire". With his speed, weaponry and ability to bring the heat to any battle, Backfiery poses a serious threat to all of his enemies. Driven also by revenge, Backfiery has a fiery temper that makes him unpredictable and highly volatile - an adversary that can really catch his opposition off-guard.
