St. John Allerdyce was born in Sydney, Australia. Although named St. John (pronounced Sinjin), he preferred the name John. As he got older he learned he could manipulate and control fire, but was unable to create it. Little is known about his past life other than he was a writer and spent most of his time in South East Asia working as a journalist and later attempted a career as an author of Gothic novels.
At some point, Allerdyce was found by Mystique and was recruited to join her version of the Brotherhood of Mutants. Within the group he made firm friendships with fellow Brotherhood team-mates, Blob and Avalanche. He was a part of Mystique's plans to assassinate Senator Robert Kelly, but was thwarted by the efforts of Kate Pryde traveling through time and occupying the body of Kitty Pryde. As a member of the Brotherhood, Pyro never worked under the team's original mentor, Magneto. However, he has been loyal to Mystique and much later to Toad.
A few years later, while the Brotherhood were incarcerated, they were offered a chance to redeem themselves. Part of the Mutant Registration Act allowed a group of mutants to register and become the public face of law abiding mutant citizens who would fight to stop illegal non-registered mutants. As such, Mystique's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants was remodeled into Freedom Force. Pyro's affiliation with both the Brotherhood and Freedom Force has brought him into conflict with various X-Men teams, and other American based teams such as the Avengers.
Pyro was most commonly associated with a life of crime. He bounced from one ill opportunity to the next, though when he contracted the Legacy Virus he would die a hero. He was later resurrected and fought against the good guys once again.
"--I will leave that in your capable hands then," the Master of Magentism uttered, a small smile remaining on his chiseled face, "You leave those politicians to me , mate, they are the real thieves." he couldn't agree more, never was a sucker for politics it never really was his forte. Watching as John checked over his gear, the man would have remained silent, hardly speaking another word until he heard the other speak one last time, "So , I should be heading to D.C. , aye? " Erik nod gently, "--I'll be at a com link's length away, if you need assistance, though I doubt it... don't hesitate to call, select a team, Mystique should be finished... if not call upon Toad or Sabretooth..." using them by their code names, opposed to their birth names, he had never been terribly fond of his own, which was why he had changed it...
"Course, I shoulda' known you'd have her eating 'em from the inside, i'll try to spy or get a loot around their homes , maybe we'll find some dirt like cocaine deals , or bribes." and Magneto would smile, bowing his head gently in acknowledgement, a strange crescendo to Pyro's own laughter, plotting, pulling together what should be, what would be. He had always had great respect for Charles and his idealogies, but Erik had little patience, even less when it came to waiting around for humanity to work in their favor, if you wanted something done, you'd have to do it yourself. "Well i'm sure you'd be happy to know i'm trying to get that Swamp Rat on our side," instantly Erik was assured which one he was speaking of, Gambit... "--That thief has his secrets alone with that of the X-men and such , he could be of some use , right? Or would you rather me double cross em?" the situation was tricky, and for a moment Magneto would stroke his chin in thought, "--We'll have to go about this gently, we certainly wouldn't want Gambit alerting the X Men of our plans, (though I still can't quite imagine why they don't see my reasoning behind it all) his allegiances lie in the grey, if he'd like to do personal snooping, tell him he'll be handsomely rewarded." Magneto declared firmly, sealing the deal, sealing his approval over what Pyro proposed, "--We won't double cross him, but we will be on our toes... we'll certainly get the drop on him before he does us, if that's the card he wishes to play..."
Erik would smile, eyes glimmering thoughtfully from beneath his helm, it was obvious he was pleased, even despite his limited play of emotions while 'working', "--It would be wise of us to know every move, every action, so we can multiple steps ahead of them, for what could be better, if not prepared?" it was often he'd post these cryptic rhetoric questions to himself, never expecting an answer, "--The ultimate goal is black mail, by retaining information 'dirt' on each of the candidates we can put them all in our pocket, they will pass laws that work in our favor, and should they not... well then we'll solly their career, fill it with so much red tape, they'll never see the end of it," he plot proudly, only pulled out of his thoughts when he heard one of his own, "Say , you aren't happening to run for President anytime soon, right?" he'd chuckle at the thought, "--President, a bit too political for my tastes, but still... wouldn't that be something?" for a moment the image danced there in his mind, a vision of power, watching as even the Avengers and the X Men would have to heed his call... a vision indeed, "You think the X-men or those bugaroos at S.H.I.E.L.D. will try an' stop us, mate?""--No, not if we play this hand intelligently, subtly, naturally I too have a flair for the theatrical, but our threats can't be too loud, take out a couple of his agents, and get close enough to state our demands, of course when the time comes. As we speak now, I already have Mystique doing her work on casing their backgrounds, when she finishes, we will go and see that they understand our demands..."
