Piotr was born on a farm in Russia. He was the oldest child of the seven Rasputin children. Unlike much of his brothers and sisters, Piotr went to school in order to get an education. When he was in tenth grade, his younger brother died in a tractor accident, so he parents pulled him out of school so he could help out on the farm. Piotr became frustrated because he had to do all of the heavy lifting, and his younger brothers hardly ever had to do work.
When Piotr was eighteen, his parents had another child, which really irritated him. However, he later learned his father had cancer, and his mother wasn't going to live for much longer either. They requested that he take in his new sister and raise her. He reluctantly accepted and named her Illyana. After his parents died, he took control of the family and enrolled his siblings in school.
By the time he was twenty one, most of his siblings hated him for making them go to school, because they failed most of their classes. After months of hassling, he pulled them out so they could continue their work on the farm. One day, he noticed Illyana was about to get run over by a tractor, so he ran in front of it, expecting his death. However, he was shocked to see that he had crushed the front of the tractor and his skin was coated in metal.
After several weeks, Piotr finally got used to his powers and used them to his advantage around the farm. He had made amends with his siblings, who forgave him for making them go to school. One morning, he was woken up by a loud ticking. He gathered his siblings and attempted to get them out of the house, but he noticed a bomb underneath the stairs. He yelled at his family to get out and he activated his metal skin the second it exploded. When the smoke cleared. Piotr discovered they were all dead, all except baby Illyana. He decided to take her far away from Russia and discover why his family was attacked.
