Victor has transformed into a hairless marine hybrid, with blue-grey skin, black eyes, and sharp claws and teeth. He usually wears little but shorts (to keep it all PG rated). His feet have webbed, splayed toes.  


Victor came from a military family with a somewhat spartan upbringing. He joined the secretive British elite special forces, the Special Boat Service, and was an effective soldier specialising in tactics.


An expert in diving, Victor and his team were called to dismantle a sunken experimental submarine. Unfortunately, the reactor had leaked radiation, and it was driving the marine life wild. Victors team were killed by a maddened radioactive shark. Victor though he was dead, being chomped and bitten.

He did not, however. He was transformed into a hybrid shark – man, giving him remarkable amphibious abilities, super senses, and incredible strength.


Personality & Motivation:
Victor has a determined, almost cold, dedication to getting the job done. He is a soldier at heart, although he has other interests such as marine biology and ecology. He has become something of an "eco-warrior" in recent times, seeing the damage done to the worlds oceans. 


Outside of the "mission", he is still a disciplined man, not drinking or smoking. He has a fondness for the theatre and opera, liking the play of drama, although he has no particular artistic bent himself. He lets very few people into his psyche (Arguably, not even himself), but has a number of more superficial friends, including military comrades (although he is has now retired from military service). 


Powers & Tactics:

Victor is incredibly strong and  resilient, and will fight clean and effectively in hand to hand combat. He has immense tactical experience and will always wish to engage with the benefit of surprise, and on his terms.


His preferred environment is the open sea / ocean where he is especially effective.


As a peculiar effect of his transformation, Victor can communicate with Sharks.


Aside from his powers, Victor is a highly trained soldier and has degrees in oceanology and marine biology.



Blood lust: Victor’s brain has some shark like qualities. The smell of blood will make him increasingly aggressive, distracted, and hungry. In any case, he has a taste for raw fish which may give rise to unpleasant social situations.


Dry Skin: Victor’s skin needs to be exposed to water twice a day or it will become dry, irritable, and painful, again distracting him or making him lose focus. Protracted periods will cause worse problems. He usually swims twice a day to compensate, but a shower would also do.


Yes Sir!: Victor has a tendency to believe and trust (without thinking) senior military officers and obey orders. This tendency is also applies to a lesser degree to rank and file military men / women. Masters of psychology, deception, or disguise might easily manipulate Victor.


Stone Cold: Victor is an experience professional soldier dedicated to the mission. He has killed and seen plenty of people killed. In the event of any tragedy or loss he has little or no time for sympathy, at least until the mission is completed (and even then, his empathy is blunted). This can easily cause people to view him as heartless, and alienate any victims.


Colour Blind: Victors eyes are almost all rod cells, allowing him to see in very low light. But this also means he has very poor or absent colour vision.


Fighter Not A Lover: Victor looks pretty ferocious and not human. Whilst he is known hero with a solid reputation, he still looks scary, and initial reactions might be startled or uncomfortable.
