Age: 16 (soon to be 17 on November 14)
Powers: generate electricity (like an eel), talk to fish (control them pretty much), swim quickly and his legs turn to a fin when he gets wet, walk on walls (sea slug slime), he can also breathe underwater. There may be more like slight control of water but he has yet to find these and may take a while to figure them out.
Family: Adoptive parents: disowned him, Real parents: dead (presumably), siblings: believes himself to be only child (may or may not have a sister)
Cody is a pretty nice guy. He tries to be kind to people, but if you do something wrong he will stand up. He's no wimp. He is not shy either. He is a people person and likes to talk to people. He has a warm personality and usually people pick up on that so he's used to being well liked by most people. I'm not sure how that will be perceived at this school though. He is randomly kind to people and doesn't see anyone as unapproachable.
Past: Cody thought he was human until he was thirteen. Once he hit puberty, he turned into his merman self slowly and developed the powers (gee I wonder where I got that from. /shot) Anyway, he ran away to live under the ocean because he had always loved it more than land, and thought he could reconnect with his mermaid roots by finding others like him. He was an orphan on land so he had no need to stay around. He lived under the ocean for about three years just swimming around and the like. He met other mermaids and was friends with many creatures, but he never settled for very long.
A few weeks ago, Cody was "saved" by a fisherman who had found him washed up on a rock in the middle of the ocean and took him back home to nurse him to health thinking him from a shipwreck or something. However, the truth was Cody had climbed up on the rock because there had been garbage and other pollution in the water and it had made him sick. He couldn't stand to be in the water so he had climbed up on the rock to get out of it for a while. He had fallen asleep. He had dried off enough for his legs to form from his fin when the man came along and scooped him up in his boat. The fisherman lived in a village on the mainland and told Cody the tale of a mysterious island that some said had a school for teens. Cody became curious and went to check it out. He was intrigued by all the species he saw. He had only completed up freshman year so he thought this a good time to finish his schooling.
Cody isn't the smartest in the world for this reason, but he's still not dumb. He is an okay student, average. He gets Cs usually (ha, get it? seas /brick'd). He is interested in girls, but isn't a giant flirt. He is sweet and tries to win them over honestly (because I'm incapable of rping a dog guy it seems :P). He loves to swim of course and feels most alive in the water. He constantly needs to drink water and moisturize or he feels awful. When he only gets slightly wet, he sprouts scales. He needs to get almost drenched to form into his merman self.
I don't know what else to say except that he's excited to be here and I can't wait to see what you throw at him. XD Nothing is ever dull at Spirit High and he needs to learn that.
