If Professor Leviathan is not immersed in water he weakens, losing 1 from all ability scores each hour that he remains out of water.
Professor Leviathan is a slender man of average height who is somewhat attractive looking with black hair and blue eyes. On land he is nearly always wearing his Aquatic Environmental Armor, a green and blue suit with gold trimming and a “glass bubble” style helmet which is filled with water. The trident he wields is of an obviously technological origin and glows blue when activated.
Interviewer: So... Professor Leviathan, your experiences are a little different than many of our applicants. You were... how can I put this...
Professor Leviathan: I was a villain. But thats all behind me now.
IV: I'm sure! Can you tell us some thing about how that came to be?
PL: Alright... back when I was working at Johns Hopkins as an adjunct professor...
IV: Adjunct? I guess your name isn't completely honest is it?
PL: Adjunct Professor Leviathan just didn't have the same ring. Anyway, while I was working with their marine biology department we started developing a chemical which was meant to give humans the ability to function better in marine environments... basically the ability to deal with higher levels of pressure and lower oxygen usage. I volunteered to test it out first, which is when the trouble started.
IV: What happened?
PL: In some ways it worked much better than expected. I became immune to deep pressure and actually able to breath water. It had some unforseen side effects though. For one thing I also stopped being able to survive outside of water for any real length of time. For another I gained the ability to speak with aquatic animals. That was a killer.
IV: What, because it's embarrassing that your power is to speak with fish?
PL: (glares) No, because the local fraternity was having a crab feast for dinner.
IV: Ouch. So that's when you became a vegetarian?
PL: No. I don't eat aquatic creatures. The poor beings are abused in the worst way by mankind and it is disgusting we would ever think to feed on them the way we do... which is through torture and mass destruction. I eat land animals all the time though. Ever had Ostrich? Yum.
IV: So what did happen to you?
PL: Well, I went a little crazy for a while. On the bright side I did invent my Trident here during that period. It lets me create brand new species of aquatic animals from DNA I mix and match amongst other things. The only problem is I don't seem to be able to make them last that long.
IV: So what's the dark side?
PL: The dark side is that I declared war on humanity. I mean I stole a tv station and made an actual declaration. Real over-the-top super villain “You wretched surface-dwellers!” style stuff. Great for creative writing, not so hot for being taken seriously as an advocate for the oceans. Still, I had a bit of success I suppose, as far as those things go.
IV: Until you went up against The Ranger.
IV: You do know he's on the show right?
PL: Yeah, I know. But, hey, it's all in the past. I'm over it.
IV: So you aren't at all bitter about being beaten?
PL: Nope. Knocked some sense into me.
IV: And your okay being on the show with the heroic hero who humiliated you? The blonde macho muscular man who's popularity seems to soar higher every week? I have a picture of him here on Time who list him as one of the top celebrities this year.
PL: Can we talk about something else?
IV: Alright. So why do you want to be on the show?
PL: A couple of reasons. For one thing part of my parole is doing community service and this would apparently qualify since everyone could see rehabilitation in action. For another thing it is really hard for ex-evil scientists to get work these days... anything legal anyway. Oddly enough Hopkins doesn't want me back now and Greenpeace won't return my calls. Go figure.
IV: Why should we want you?
PL: Are you kidding? I'm great tv. I'm part tragic freak and part smart young turk, and who doesn't love a story about a man triumphing over his past? Especially when part of that past is already on the show? It will be great.
