"My life is pointless. I was brought into this world in order to save the life of someone who died three days later. My mother abandoned me and father is literally the devil. I've tried killing myself, but he won't allow it. I thought I was meaningless, but the X-Men has given me purpose."

When Raven Darkholme's lover, Irene, was dying, she made a deal with the Devil in order to ensure her survival. The two conceived a child and Raven's pregnancy only lasted about three weeks, due to Mephisto's unique DNA. However, Irene died three days later in a car crash.
Only because he would be a constant reminder of Irene, Raven abandoned the baby. He aged twice as fast as regular humans, which led him to become extremely street smart by the age of four. However, he was found by a Catholic Church after he first arrived in a nearby city. They attempted to sacrifice him, but his powers were activated and he teleported away. He eventually settled in Nevada, where he began tormenting villagers, creating a legend that the town was being haunted by a demon.
Eventually Kurt found a barn to stay in. The next day, he was found by the young girl who lives on the farm. A young girl named Anna. She wasn't frightened by him, in fact, the two became friends. She gave him the name Kurt and he adopted her last name; Wagner. Eventually the town found out about Anna's "pet demon" and chased him away, causing both of them to become heartbroken.
Not long after he was chased away, he was found by Charles Xavier, who offered him a home and a family. Kurt was almost too quick to accept the offer. He was also thrilled when he learned he would be working alongside other mutants as a member of a team.
