EDIT: Oh, and as an added bonus, Underwaterdude's first appearance of all time ever:

For :iconescapefromnevara:.
I BLAME :iconpineapplesodacat:. FOR EVERYHTING.

Um, yeah, I don't really care if he's drawn or colored on-model. As long as it's somewhere in the ballpark. Also, that picture of him without his mask on creeps me out, and I hope there's never a reason for anyone to draw him like that, haha.

I kinda like the idea of throwing this crazy guy into a semi-serious plotline... Okay, so I'm just addicted to good, clean fun.

Anyways, info:

Alias: Underwaterdude
Name: Jonothan Higgs BUT IT'S A SECRET
Age: 28
Height in the mock-standing position pictured in the ref: Approximately 5'11"

History: Lived on land with his parents for most of his life. I may upload an image of his parents, but for now it's a 'don't ask' kind of thing. He underwent an epiphany several months before the present and realized that the creatures of the ocean had no one to protect them from the forces of evil! Being comfortably capable of living underwater and having opposable thumbs he figured makes him the perfect candidate. He somehow also figured that to fight crime he would need a superhero persona. Thus Underwaterdude was born! He now lives under the ocean in a makeshift "castle" with one big room. His mother hates the ocean and calls him all of the time to make sure he hasn't been eaten. Also, as a side note he is a serious baker. Like, not a freaking cookie baker. Complicated souffles and breads and stuff. Very intense. Unfortunately he had to give it up when he moved underwater thanks to physics.

Personality: He is epic and enthusiastic and actually pretty sharp whenever he decides to think about things. He's not a big fan of thinking about things, though, and would much rather take immediate action. He's very persistent simply because when he's trying to accomplish something his mind doesn't wander, and he'll keep at it until he either succeeds or is called off of it by something more pressing. He doesn't actively seek out fights, but he's certainly not opposed to fighting when it's appropriate. His claw hands are mad sharp, haha, but he's more of a punching/tail-bashing kinda guy. I really don't think he'd intentionally scratch anyone, though he'd probably use his claws for practical purposes. He's had a good, slightly sheltered life. He feels the need to deliver epic lines or witty sentiments, but he very, very rarely thinks of any. This sometimes results in him pausing during speech for some length of time, and then sort of awkwardly picking up where he left off. This will probably be updated when people ask questions. The more you ask, the longer this section will become XD

Powers and Miscellaneous Stuff: He can breathe underwater and communicate with fish/undersea mammals. He thinks his comprehension is on and off because a lot of fish like to mess with him by pausing in the middle of a sentence to stare at him/blow bubbles but it's actually a constant thing. He can survive outside of water, but it's very uncomfortable where his tail is concerned. He usually has some kind of tub or container full of water, fixed with wheels and moved around by use of a stick or broom to save his tail from drying out. He'll probably get around to fashioning one of those.

Will update with any new info, as it comes up :>
Audition coming soon.
