The Heroine Typhoon stands about 5’8 with a slender build, teal reptilian skin, soft golden eyes, and a series of fins running from the top of her hairless head and down her back. Normally she eschews clothing of any kind, but this tends to scandalize land dwellers so she dons a one-piece black and blue swimsuit when she has to deal with them for a long period of time. She often travels with her spear slung over her shoulder.
The world was first introduced to Typhoon days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Several Japanese ships were filmed being sunk by a single figure. Closer examination of the film revealed this figure to be a strange fish woman who was literally swimming at these ships so fast and she was puncturing their hulls. Days later, this strange fish person sank a Nazi U-boat off the East coast of the United States. She came to shore afterwards and revealed herself to the public. Speaking perfect English she declared that as long as she lived the seas would not be safe for the Axis, nor anyone who got in her way. That was how the public met their first super powered person.
Speculation began instantly. Some scientists postulated that she was a member of a previously undiscovered Aquatic humanoid race. This theory was taken slightly more seriously to than the theory that she was the daughter of a member of a previously undiscovered aquatic humanoid race and a human being. The bottom line was that no one knew anything about this one-woman typhoon.
In reality the Nazis knew all too well what they were facing on the high seas, they had created it. In 1938 Doctor Bernard Sechs put into motion a series of medical experiments crossing human and animal traits. The end result was a squad a man animal hybrids who had started as human beings, but had their identities erased by the torturous process. Many of those early subjects were more animal than man, however one subject, a female human/shark hybrid, proved to be very coherent. In truth at the start of World War 2, many of the Nazi’s naval victories were largely the result of this woman, Haifisch-Maid’s actions.
The man-animals had always been told that they were born the way that they were. However, Haifisch-Maid discovered that she had actually started as a human being and had been changed into her current state by Sechs. Enraged she tried to kill Sechs, but was stopped by several heavily armed soldiers. Under a hail of gunfire she escaped the lab with a spear made of an experimental alloy.
That day she declared her own personal war against the Axis. Though she never mentioned it she also sought clues as to who she had been before her transformation. Clues have been sparse, as the files are top secret, but she’s determined to find out who she had been. This has brought her into direct conflict with Sechs and his ever more impressive man-animal forces.
