The Duck is one of the younger Guardians.  Although he hails from a wealthy family and is a rebel with a trust fund, he has undergone Marine training and is as tough as nails. Calm in all situations, his relaxed attitude should not be mistaken for weakness because when the time to fight arises, few Guardians are more prepared than the Duck.

He wears a futuristic bio suit and helmet that allow him to breathe underwater for short periods of time. He also has "surf boots" on his feet that give him the ability to glide on the surface of water at incredible speeds. He has wings, but they allow him to fly in short bursts and at low altitudes only.  He's constantly developing new technology that allows him to take advantage of his aquatic abilities.  He also has several surfboards for different conditions and adventures, including his ever-present "Fish" board; a retro surfboard that allows him to cut through waves and at an incredible speed and make amazing maneuvers. He's a bit of a showoff, but with skills like his, you would be to.
Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
