HistoryDoug's mutant awakening was relatively subtle, as is fitting his mutation. He went through a couple of months of migraines at 14, and when they faded, he gradually began to notice he could understand all languages. He realized he was a mutant shortly thereafter. His abilities were so low key, he decided to keep his head down and not make waves.
And yet, as time went on, he saw more and more prejudice and injustice against mutants. He began to quietly campaign for mutant rights, only to be chastised as a 'White Knight' by both humans and mutants alike. He grew angry at both the injustice and his own impotence and that anger continued to fester.
He found himself hacking into Human Supremacists websites and outing them to the Southern Poverty Law Center and the FBI, which didn't seem to accomplish much. Eventually, he was able to track down a Botherhood Cell and fed them information about a militant Humans First faction that was preparing to kidnap a mutant kid. The Brotherhood killed the Human First members, saving the kid and ending the thread.
Magneto could sense both how angry Doug was and how useful his talents could be and Cypher joined the Brotherhood.
SkillsDoug is an accomplished black hat hacker, skilled in social engineering and phishing. He's taught himself to pick mechanical locks and bypass electronic security. He's decent at electrical engineering, and knows that basics of disguise.
AppearanceDoug isn't a bad looking guy, but he isn't the Greek Adonis that so many mutants are. Instead, he's just sort of average looking, with messy blonde hair and green eyes. He rarely wears any sort of uniform, preferring comfortable clothes, primarily dark fleece and jeans.
PowersOmnilinguistics - Cypher is a mutant who possesses a superhuman intuitive facility for translating languages, spoken or written, human or alien in origin. His superhuman skill is extended to his great facility in deciphering codes and computer language.
He can still miss subtext and his translation ability only extends to body language that is explicitly intended to communicate a concept. That makes him very vulnerable to people trying to feint him, because he translates the feint exactly as it was intended, causing him to react as the attacker would have desired.
Rather than working the problem out step by step in his conscious mind, he instead subconsciously solves the problem. Hence, he can reach the correct solution by means that appear to be leaps of logic, and he himself may not be consciously aware of the entire process by which he reaches the right answer.
The power is informative in nature. Without a large amount of practice, he'll still have an accent if communicating in a foreign tongue, he cannot translate language he cannot perceive, and just because he might be able to translate complex, exotic languages doesn't automatically give him the ability to communicate back. If an alien communicated by changing skin pigmentation, he could understand him, but he can't Blush Green to say 'Hi'.
