Name:Alison Blaire
Birthdate:Jan 1
Alison was born in Gardendale, New York to Carter and Katherine Blaire on an unspecified date. Her mutant powers first manifested when she was in high school. An aspiring singer, she volunteered to perform at her school dance when her light-generating abilities first appeared. Everyone at the dance assumed it was a techno-based special effect, and this assumption would continue until she was revealed as a mutant.

Using the stage name “Dazzler,” Alison set out to make a name for herself in the music industry, while using her light powers and dancing ability to enhance her performances. It was at one of these shows that Alison met the X-Men. Few but those closest to her knew she was actually a mutant. After acquainting herself with the various Marvel Comics superheroes, Alison found herself continually using her abilities to fight ordinary criminals and rogue superhumans –- often at the expense of her career ambitions. In addition to being offered membership into the X-Men, Alison was also asked to join the Avengers twice -- all of which she declined.

After moving to Los Angeles, Alison attempted careers in fitness training, modeling, and acting. Influenced both by her lover Roman Nekoboh, and her desire to abate the growing anti-mutant sentiment, Alison publicly declared her mutant identity. This revelation backfired, destroying her reputation and career, inflaming anti-mutant sentiment, and sent Alison into a depressive state. Forced again into hiding, Alison was possessed by the psychic mutant Malice, and was later saved and taken-in by the X-Men.

During her tenure with the X-Men, Alison received greater training and control over her powers, and developed a romance with the extra-dimensional Longshot. She was also forced to work alongside Rogue, with whom she had a longstanding grudge. Dazzler struggled with her career ambitions and personal insecurities, and eventually she -- along with teammates Rogue, Psylocke, Colossus, and Havok -- entered the mystical Siege Perilous, leaving her in an amnesiac state. Discovered by Longshot, and devastated by the loss of her career, Alison ventured to his native "Mojoworld," and remained to help fight in the ongoing rebellion against the tyrant Mojo. Dazzler eventually returned to Earth without Longshot after an unfortunate series of events, including miscarriage and war. The X-Men offered Alison support, but she declined.

The Dazzler later re-established her musical career, marketing her trademark disco image in the Techno/Trance genre. Alison has since moved her career abroad to Japan where she lives with her husband, Longshot and his ever extending network of family and friends.
