Biography:
Thomas Ard's parents knew their child was different when they went to investigate his crying one day. They discovered Tommy sitting on the floor in what looked like a small pile of hail, banging his sippy-cup on the floor in frustration. His parents picked up the cup and noticed it was much heavier than it should have been. After opening the cup, they discovered the juice inside was frozen solid. Tommy began crying again because he was thirsty, and that's when his parents discovered the origins of the "hail" – it was Tommy's frozen tears.

Tommy's parents soon brought him to Paragon City hall, where Azuria informed them that their child had magical abilities and was particularly proficient with ice powers. Further tests determined that Tommy also had a fair talent for the healing arts. The neighborhood kids nicknamed him "Blizz", and loved it when he would make snowballs in the middle of the summer. Blizz began his formal hero training when he reached adulthood.

A real jerk. Goes out of his way to hassle citizens and bring pain to everyone. Enjoys evil deeds as small as throwing kittens in trees and tripping little old ladies crossing the street, to large plots to destroy or dominate the world. Refused to choose a Patron in Grandville because, "They ain't the boss of me."

Biography:
Thomas Ard's parents knew their child was different when they went to investigate some strange noises one afternoon. They discovered Tommy throwing shards of ice at the family pet, freezing it in place while he inflicted terrible pain upon it. They were so shocked that they almost missed that Tommy was actually creating the ice.

Tommy's parents soon brought him to Diabolique, who informed them that their child had magical abilities, specifically ice and pain-inducing powers. Tommy turned to a life of crime as he grew older, taking the name of Frozache. While stealing records from Portal Corp, he discovered that his alternate Earth had a mirror universe containing another Thomas Ard, a hero by the name of Blizz Ard. Frozache found a way to this other Earth and ended up in the Rogue Isles.

The multiverse only has room for one Thomas Ard, and Frozache is determined to be that one.
