In the abyssal navy, there are numerous motivations. Some members seek a semblance of belonging, others search for a forgotten past, and still more seek only to become the most efficient killers. This dark admiral is an abyssal scientist, unconcerned with concepts such as restraint which serves only to hinder the steady march of progress. Arising from the lingering hate of a vicious battle fought long ago, she embodies the technological superiority held by one side of that battle and seeks to constantly improve her abyssal underlings, whether they want it or not. Outwardly, she is a cold, calculating individual who beholds all before her with an air of lukewarm disdain; a scientific, observational veneer stretched over carefully restrained rage. While she does command a fleet of abyssal warships, including her own artificially ascended creations, her personal arsenal consists of large numbers of abyssal attack aircraft. Per her own augmentations, however, this is not the limit of her offensive power; scattered reports suggest she consumes other abyssal ships and mounts their weapons to herself.
Display Their Might:
- An embodiment of grudges and hatred left over from violent battles in the past. Offensively and defensively, she has more in common with warships and front-line fortifications.
- Damage Reduction: Her human appearance conceals a body that is armored like steel. Causing damage can be very difficult.
- Superior Strength: She easily carries metal equipment larger than her own body, can lift large slabs of steel, and buckles armor plates with her bare hands.
- Water Functionality: She can walk or skate on the water's surface. She can also submerge to any depth.
Tactics Are Crucial:
- A wary strategist prioritizes intel and recon before committing to the attack.
- Extraordinary Senses: Detecting people and objects through darkness, smoke, clouds, or bad weather via bouncing radio waves off them for radar, and sound waves for sonar underwater.
- *Remote Viewing: Aircraft that Midway launches are capable of long recon patrols, and Midway may choose to see through their eyes.
- Abyssal underlings artificially ascended from lesser forms, called Water Demons, are fielded as officers in command of basic abyssal forces.
- NPCs: Each Water Demon is an exaggerated version of her prior self. They are delineated by a more human appearance and the ability to think and act on their own without direct orders.
- Healing-Self: By consuming one of her minions, Midway can self-repair damage she has taken while also equipping that Abyssal's weapons in place of her standard equipment.
Admirals At War:
- Weaponry developed from mid-century naval warfare. She favors attack aircraft in the form of fighters and bombers, but may change it by taking equipment from her subordinates.
- Attack List-Ranged: Abyssal fighter planes, bombers, naval artillery, machine guns, torpedoes, and depth charges. Weapons developed by Midway, limited to conventional technology of the Second World War.
- Attack List-Melee: Enormous gauntlets, sickle claws, spikes, jagged teeth, integrated blades, mounted to abyssal equipment for close combat.
A Pacific War <Trouble>: She is an avatar of the rage and madness of war. This equates to a very intense temper that could be described as 'volcanic', hidden beneath the surface until it suddenly explodes. When prodded by failure, loss, treachery, or something she perceives as imperfect, she becomes fixated on it. In her research, this drives her to focus on a single project until its completion to the complete halt of all other development. In battle, this has an effect similar to tunnel vision. Even when beset upon by multiple foes, when suitably provoked, Midway fixates all of her attention only on the one doing the provoking. This lasts so long as her attention is retained and her frustration is kept high and her temper is not directly provoked by others present.
