Tyler was the computer expert for a team of criminal abnormals. He had a kind of thermal vision that allowed him to see the body heats of other creatures through solid objects.
Him and his team were all collected by the military to be trained for special black ops missions. However, their superiors decided they were too unstable to ever be allowed on a real mission, but they were also too dangerous to just be let go of so the military tried to have them killed, but they escaped and turned to a life of crime.
Tyler and his boss were both killed when their get away plane exploded because of a trap Magnus set.
