Powers: Emplate must feed on other mutants in doing so he gains their superhuman powers and can also gain a semblance of telepathic control over them. He can also grant his vampiric powers to others allowing them to feed and thus send the energy to him. He can sense mutants due to his powers as well. He also resides in another dimension so he can sync with the normal world somewhat to grant intangibility and phasing powers, he can also use this power to appear anywhere undetectable by telepathy and all known technology.
Born into the wealthy house of St. Croix Marius was the first of three siblings and the outcast as soon of everyone laid eyes on his perfect little sister Monet. His jealously grew even further when Nicole and Claudette were born. When he hit puberty his powers manifested one day when his father and the girls were away from the house. He killed his mother by feeding on her. His father kicked him out of the house soon after without realizing he was the one who had committed the crime. When he returned home he tried to convince Monet to join him in his word conquest bid, when she refused he transformed her into the razor sharp penance. Nicole and Claudette outraged he had returned used their own powers to cast him into another dimension and Monet unable to return to her original form herself followed. For years after he used Monet as his sustenance, feeding on her marrow in the most painful ways imaginable as punishment for refusing him and years of ridicule as children.
She later escaped thanks to Gateway while he clashed with Generation X. For years he battled Generation X until Monet was freed from her altered form and he finally confessed to his father how he had killed his mother. He then disappeared yet retained his powers after M-day. Emplate then attacked utopia and captured the mutant Bling to use as his new food, he was defeated by Rogue and disappeared once again.
