Backdraft is dressed like a firefighter, sporting a long yellow jacket with high-visibility lines running down the centre, along his sleeve cuffs, hem, and high collar, as well as a red fireman hat. A thin cannon is strapped to his left shoulder which is attached to the red water tank he wears on his back. He wears a white mask with a single orange bead embedded into the centre, which could possibly be his eye. He has taps for hands with circular wrist-guards just behind their openings, red valves over the top, a pair of similar knee-pads on his legs, and yellow sneakers on his feet.
Not much is known about his personality at this time.
Backdraft and several other heroes try to stop the Sludge Villain who is controlling Katsuki Bakugo. Kamui Woods asks Backdraft to stop the villain, but Backdraft says that he cannot do anything because he and another hero are trying put out the fires started by Katsuki's Explosions. Backdraft then demands to know if the fire trucks have arrived yet. He orders the other heroes to keep the damage under control until a hero appears who is able to stop the villain.
Later, he and the other heroes try to stop Izuku Midoriya when he wants to help Katsuki. Luckily, All Might appears and stops the villain with one attack. Backdraft and the other heroes then collect the remains of the villain and deliver them to the Police Force.
Unnamed Water Quirk: Backdraft’s Quirk allows him to create water from the hose spigots that he has in place of hands. He has a great level of control over the water, shown when he was able to shape the water into a barricade rail with 'X' shaped warning symbols.
