Dennis Lewis resides in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he grew up with a dedicated love for superhero cartoons and comics. Black heroes such as Static, The JLA's John Stewart and Dragon Ball's Piccolo (he's not backing down on that last one) have had a profound and lasting effect on Dennis, and taught him that being a hero is not exclusive to any ethnicity or color. He's more than thrilled to carry on the legacy of POC heroes as Urgent/Biome in Vigil. Dennis does what he can to exemplify the importance of these characters and their influence every day as a paramedic and fire lieutenant on the Milwaukee Fire Department.
