Cole MacGrath was a simple bike messenger who was delivering a package for someone to somewhere in the Historic District of Empire City. In the midst of his delivery however, his package exploded, destroying half the city and killing millions. However, this event resulted in Cole gaining power over electricity.
Cole is then given the choice to be known all around as a hero, or as a villian, with the use of his newfound powers.
He is alos a guest character in Street Fighter X Tekken, the producers say We think that Cole will fit perfectly in the game because of his electrical powers.
Four years back, before his time in Empire City, Cole practiced learning parkour with his best friend Zeke Dunbar in the city of New Marais, where the cops had their hands full. Cole mentioned during a conversation with Moya that he took part in urban exploration in Empire City, which is the reason why he is able to navigate through the city's sewer system with little trouble. Several remarks by Kessler suggest that his mother detested Cole's job, often telling her friends that Cole was a school teacher rather than a bike messenger. Kessler also said that Cole's father approved of his relationship with Trish Dailey, commenting that she was like "the daughter he never had". Stated in a conversation with Nix, Cole had a little brother, though he hasn't talked to him in a while. Cole's education was something he decided on his own, dropping out of College and getting a job as a bike courier, mostly just to disappoint his parents.
Before he met Trish, Cole was involved in an accident where he got run over by a freight truck, an accident that should have killed him. However, he was able to get back up after a few days, only suffering some minor injuries from the accident. Only Zeke knew the full story of the accident, while Cole only told Trish a fragment of the supposed story after he met her, to make it seem like it wasn't something serious.
Festival of BloodEdit
As a vampire, Cole appeared differently, with fangs and red glowing eyes, a large amount of blood down the front of his shirt, now red, and red veins on his forearms. His bag is also stained with blood.
