Need help starting out




I've made my first RP char on Virtue. The problem is, I'm having trouble getting started on his bio. I know exactly what I want to happen to him and how certain events shape him into the hero he becomes. I have names, dates, places but I just can't get started. (That was always my problem with writing)
I was really hoping the more experienced writers here could help me out. Once I have the intro done, I can fill the rest in. If anyone here can help, I'd really appreciate it.

-Parents, Jonathan and Marie
-Brother, Justin
-Born, Oct 9, 1982
-Mutant, Energy/Energy blaster

I'm trying to put that into an intro about how he was born (seemingly a normal boy) into a normal family. I'm just having trouble putting it into words. If you can help, but need more info, please let me know.

Please, any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.



Oh, and the name's Elan, Elan Vital.



Well I won't pretend to be the greatest writer in the world, but I know what it's like to be stuck at the beginning of a story. I don't know anything about his origin, but perhaps it could start something like this?

When Elan was born, his parents were your average people. They lived in an average house, and they had average jobs. And when their son was born, they were expecting an average little boy. But that's not what they got. At an early age, Elan started showing signs of...

bla bla bla. I'm not sure exactly what you meant by intro, but hopefully that helps?
