In Brief: Military Shark-Man! 

Residence: A modest apartment in Midtown, Freedom City

Alternate Identity: Simon Macota 
Identity: Secret
Birthplace: Seattle, Washington
Occupation: Cage-fighter for the "Meta-Mayhem Entertainment Company." Former Master Sargent for the US army.  
Affiliations: "Anyone who loves freedom, beating yahoos who need to be beat, and themselves!" 
Family: His husband (Frank, been married for 12 years)  and his daughter (Alexa - she's 9.)  both of whom he loves very much.

Age: 36 (DoB: 5/8/1980)
Apparent Age: late 20's early 30's in human form, hard to tell in Meta form.
Gender: Male.
Ethnicity: Caucasian.
Height: 5'11 in human form, 7'6 in meta form.
Weight: 215 lbs in human form, 970 lbs in Meta form
Eyes: Green in human form - though solid green in Meta form.
Hair: Brown.


In his human form, he resembles any average Former Army Guy (as his daughter puts it) that you might see on the street. He's muscled, but not unreasonably so - he keeps himself in shape. He usually dresses casually - jeans, old button-up shirts, ETC. His hair is usually kept short, but manageable, except for the ever-present thin mustache and goatee. "They didn't allow beards back in basic. This is my little way of rebelling." 


In Meta-Form, he's...big. Almost eight feet tall, with biceps like barrels, arms like tree-trunks, and grey, rough, sandpaper-like skin.  No more "Kind of short but reasonable hair" now; now he's got a full-on buzzcut. The mustache? No longer thin. Takes up a good portion of his face and links with his beard to create what the Sarge calls "The beard of awesomeness, ya yahoos!" Ears? Gone, to be replaced by a pair of tiny ear holes on either sides of his head. Nose? Flattened, but not gone entirely...it's not a snout like one would see on a shark, but it is shark-like, if that makes sense. A mouthful of serrated, triangular, massive teeth and a set of gills going up and down his neck further complete his facial package. Basically, his head is still human, but...sharkish.  Like 50-50. Other interesting characteristics are a big ol' dorsal fin poking out of his back (usually further shredding whatever shirt he had on at the time - this used to be a problem for him, let me tell YOU.) 


His "Superhero outfit" isn't minimalist, but it's not quite elaborate, either. His agent put it together using experimental "Stretch-Tech" so it can fit under his Civilian Clothes. A white undershirt with a hole in the back for the fin, a pair of cameo fatigues for his pants, and a big ol' armband on his left arm decorated with a cartoon shark wearing an army helmet are what he wears to go into action.  


Power Descriptions:

When he transforms, he...morphs, would be a good term. Stretches. It's a pretty quick change, but it's not an attractive one, if you know what I mean. He transforms whenever his adrenaline spikes, so he usually carries around a set of experimental adreno-suppresants and provided to him by the military. If he needs to change "On the quick", though..."That's why God made epi-pens."


Ever since he was a little kid, Simon Macota wanted to be a fighter. A wrestler. Someone who wore the tights and walked the walk. His mother and father were...not happy with this idea, especially since Simon was both asthmatic and a hemophiliac. Whoof. Life just did NOT want this kid to fulfill his dreams. Not that he gave up on them...he was a determined little guy. Did he sleep his way through high school? Well, no - he got decent enough grades, and pursued a degree in engineering at Arnold Wilson Community College. He graduated, he...had no job. Which sucked. 


And he got his chance one day...though not in the way he would have liked.
