Weakness To Earth
Character Weakness to Earth:
Trapped! Trapped under dirt, rock and sand in the harsh desert of Arizona. Dolphins, an aquatic creature, generally do not do well on dry land. Even less so when buried alive underneath it. How had it come to this?
The Dollar Corporation had turned its greedy eye and vast technological resources towards capturing Max, which they did eventually. Dollar Corp was quite determined to reconstruct their mutagen chemicals. Max found himself transported to a secret lab in the Arizona desert, there to be dissected and liquefied. However, those insidious plans were thwarted with a daring escape by Max on the landing strip. Max flew towards freedom perused by a Dollar Corp tracking missile. The missile zipped close to Max and exploded. The concussive blast slammed Max the Flying Dolphin to the ground at the base of a desert mountain and triggered an avalanche.
This could be the end of Max the Flying Dolphin.
Weak Enhanced Strength: weak
Now Max isn't a particularly big dolphin, but even the biggest and most powerful dolphin is still an awkward creature on dry land. They have no arms or legs. Dolphins are built to swim, not to dead lift heavy rocks against the force of gravity on dry land. Soon buried under an avalanche, all seemed hopeless for Max
A Tenacious Fighter
Enhanced Willpower: superior
But Max would never give up. A tenacious creature, Max would fight to the bitter end. Besides that, Max suddenly found that he was really, really angry with Dollar Corp. Really angry. Something of a new emotional experience for Max, this sudden anger lent him purpose.
Everyone Loves A Dolphin
Enhanced Charisma: superior
Everyone seems to just love a dolphin, and why shouldn't they? They are generally benign and friendly beings. They aren't out eating swimmers and getting all "Jaws" on anyone. They do tricks, fetch balls and always seem to be smiling. Max wondered... just what the hell is wrong with these assholes and what do they have against dolphins anyways? What terrible things are they planning to do to other dolphins? Why do they hate us? Max did not have the answers but he was now prepared to pay them back in full for what he had been given.
Water: supreme (rank 3)
- Ranged Attack
- Area Affect
- Target Seeker
So dry. So, so dry. The desert air was dry. The sand and dirt and grit was dry. Buried in rock and sand and too weak to lift free of it Max naturally turned to his amazing control of water which was so very powerful in the ocean seas. Instinctively he could generate just enough from what little ambient moisture was available to keep his body slick and protected for the time being. Though Max was ignorant in the ways of geology it was his good fortune to have been blown into a dry riverbed. Max sensed the water hidden deep in the ground below. Concentrating, pulling the water to him, Max bid it to rise. Slowly it responded. At first it came seeping up in drops which created a thick gritty mud around him. As he bent his will and reached deeper, it began to come in streams. Using the water at his command Max slipped his way out of the rubble and free.
Telepathy: standard (rank 1)
- Ranged Attack
- Area Affect
The Dollar Corp goons sped to the buried dolphin in their jeeps intent on retrieving the corpse quickly for the science lab. They would find no corpse today, however. What they found was a mud covered and very pissed off sea mammal. Max does not understand the language of humans but can communicate nonetheless. He has found he has the ability to put mental pictures into the minds of other creatures and see the mental pictures in theirs. The goons were treated to the mental image of being ripped apart by sharks.
Water Shield Bubble
Force Field Generation: supreme (rank 3)
Raising their guns to fire the Dollar Corps mercenaries were crack shots. But it was too late for bullets. The water continued to flow and Max had encased himself in a large, protective bubble of hardened water. The tide, as they say, had turned. Water tendrils whipped up from the ground around the goons. Tearing, smacking, drowning, ripping - fired by the anger Max felt and focused upon them. Those that could fled.
The Flying Dolphin
Flight: standard (rank 1)
Now Max can only be considered an adequate flier. He is not particularly speedy. (Of course, being able to fly at all is more than can be said for most dolphins). But one advantage Max does have is that he can also cause other things fly along with him. This comes in very handy when Max wants to fly around surrounded by water... which is pretty much always since he is an aquatic creature after all. Still, he could certainly fly well enough to get out of missile range immediately, which is exactly what he did.
The Arizona desert was hardly the place for a dolphin and so Max was headed for that sweet, sweet salt water in the Gulf of Mexico. But there would be another day Dollar Corp. Oh yes, another time would come. On the seas and on the coasts Dollar Corp had made an enemy which would soon prove to cause them no end of trouble.
