Firestarter is a small redhead, and he looks deceptively young. Not yet ten, he lives in Garik Shayk's apartment building, City View Apartments.

Firestarter follows anything his two co-conspirators are willing to get into, especially if it involves Garik Shayk. The older boy rides a Street Strider, the jet-assist bike that's the coolest thing in Old Town, and the allure is inescapable. 

Firestarter is the one of the wannabe gang of preteens that tries to run the yard around City View who is willing to do anything on a dare,

Firestarter's two "co-gangsters" are Shrimper and Winter. 

We first meet Firestarter in Book 1 of The Human-Hybrid Project, Shattered by Glass.
