'The Shark' revealed as 12th NHL Guardian
The Shark

(Click image to enlarge)

"The Shark" is a contrarian. Normally he exhibits a low-key almost passive nature choosing to avoid conflict. Of all the Guardians, he is the least likely to be the lightening rod for any particular mission or cause. However, the Shark can change his demeanor at a moment's notice and exhibit a more tenacious side. At these moments he cares only about his objective.

Since San Jose is the capital of Silicon Valley, the Shark is the Guardian's resident computer "geek" and a technopath who can mentally interface with any type of computer data or software. The Shark is a massive humanoid looking character with the sleek skin of a Great White, the head of a shark complete with rows of jagged teeth and like actual sharks, poor eyesight (in fact he's almost blind). As a result, his other senses, especially smell and touch, have been heightened to superhuman levels.



Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
