NOTE: superseded by Beacon version, below
Who changed you?
The undersea empire of Atlantis, which has engaged in a protracted cold war with the surface world since the 1920s. Despite its age and power, Atlantis is vulnerable - its people are slow to act and slow to decide. They have been interbreeding with humans, or modifying human test subjects, like me, into biological or cybernetic weapons and secret agents.
How did you escape from them?
I swam to the surface and hid out with the aid of a half-Japanese, half-Atlantean ninja named Shinkai Hafuko. She is one like me, meant to infiltrate the surface world and spy on humanity, but she is sympathetic to people.
Who, outside the team, tries to take care of you now?
Fuko is my friend and assistant, keeping me appraised of Atlantis’ movements.
Why do you try to be a hero?
I’ve been given a strength I never had as a human. If I’m to stay alive - and maybe avert a war with Atlantis - I need to be the best of both worlds.
Why do you care about the team?
This team is all weirdos and outsiders. Not a single one of them fits in anywhere, which is why we fit in together.
