Notable Mundane Attributes

  • Community Theater: Trained singer, and orator, with experience in several musicals. His dancing is lackluster.
  • O sole mio!: One of the first Gondoliers. Skilled enough to have made oodles of money while piloting the Pearl Forrester.
  • Sesquipedalianism is the Pinnacle of Erudition: Extensive vocabulary.

Handwavium Abilities

  • The 'Wavium Mystique: Through a handwavium-laced physiology, he can assume the form of any humanoid within six inches height of his "neutral" height of 5'10". Mass remains constant, so a teeny female form will have very dense bones and musculature, while a huge bodybuilder is mostly air.


  • Popeye's addiction: in order to activate a metamorphosis, he must scarf a serving of Spotted Dick. To that end, he keeps several cases of a canned version of the English dessert aboard the Pinafore.
  • I DON'T LIKE SPAM!: he finds that he needs "English" cuisine to feel "normal." Bangers and Mash, Fish and Chips, and so on. He loves pasties (pronounced PAST- ease) but never eats them aboard the Pinafore due to a Cornish superstition about them and ships.
