Twelve years ago, in Dallas, Texas, Jace Turner, then a rookie cop, is being mentored by his more experienced partner. They both notice a suspicious teenaged mutant at a nearby liquor store and decide to confront him. When he doesn't fully cooperate with them (mainly due to feeling harrassed), Jace's partner tases him, much to Jace's abhorrence. His partner, however doesn't care given his hatred of mutants due to the death of his previous partner who was killed by a mutant driver they pulled over for a broken taillight a few years prior. He then orders Jace to arrest him, which he does with great reluctance.
