NEW SON

New Son was a Gambit born in his reality's foremost mutant research and genetic planning facility. Much like the children in "Dark Angel", he was trained for the use and exploitation of his mutant powers. When he hit adolescence, however, he was skilled enough to incinerate the facility and escape. He, then, made his way to the X-Men, where he found a home for a few years until he killed that world's Phoenix.
He was banished from the team and spent some years both as an ally and foe of various superhumans. When he was 18, however, he was taken in by Jean-Luc LeBeau, whom he called his friend and mentor. While with the Guilds, he was informed of the prophecies of the Resurrection of the Old Kingdom and his role in them. They were meant to bring about heaven on earth, meant to lead everyone as one into the shining light of the sun. In a tragic sense, they did. Instead of the utopia for which the Guilds had hoped, the energies of the Old Kingdom when combined with his biokinetic powers created an uncontrollable cascade of energy that destroyed everyone and everything save the "New Sun".
Ravaged by guilt and grief, he tried to undo his actions, to control time by controlling the flow of kinetic energies, but could only manage to breach the space between multiverses and travel to other realities.
So, he decided to prevent his alternate counterparts from making the same tragic mistake as he had.

PIG, THE

The Pig was a grotesque mutant who trafficked in children trained to be skilled at languages, military strategy etc . . . Obsessed with order and cleanliness, probably due to his own appearance, he concocted a plan to turn the entire world into his slaves through a mindcontrol gas. Gambit caught wind of this scheme when the Pig kidnapped the boy who produced the gas as a result of his mutation, because the child's sister was a member of the Tokyo Thieves Guild. He rescued the boy and defeated the Pig.
However, this was not his first encounter with the Pig. He met him for the first time when he was a young teen and was overseeing his cousin, Etienne's tilling. They were captured by the Pig, and, even though they managed to escape into the ocean, Etienne was killed in the fall from the cliff on which the Pig had built his hideout. Gambit had been afraid of the Pig ever since.
