Demetrios was never a "normal" Atlantean. While every denizen of Atlantis is at home in the seas, Demetrios discovered he had the unique ability to manipulate water currents at an early age, propelling him along swifter and farther than his peers could swim. When he was attacked by an injured and confused shark at the tender age of 80, it was this talent that saved his life, sweeping away the animal and sparing the young boy's life. As soon as he was able, he enlisted in the Atlantean military as a scout, zipping ahead of his comrades to bring critical information about the state of the aquatic battlefield.
Demetrios discovered at a young age that the currents of the deep sea always seemed to flow smoothly for him, propelling him along and shepherding him from danger. As he grew older, he began to learn how to consciously control this power, and could travel faster and farther underwater than any of his peers. Now on land, the sea refuses to abandon him, surrounding him with a watery aura of protection which he has used to great advantage in surface battles.
Although it still responds with a mind of its own, Demetrios has learned to control his watery aura consciously for a variety of close-range attacks.
Water Strike: Wrapping his fists in the watery aura which surrounds him, Demetrios jabs forth with a fast, accurate punch to the jaw.
Aquatic Smite: Demetrios launches a devastating punch to his target, surrounded by the watery aura which protects him.
Rain of Blows: Empowered by the force of ship-killer storm, Demetrios unleashes a flurry of rapid strikes, powerful enough to hit multiple foes.
Extract Moisture: Demetrios's most fearsome attack. Concentrating for a moment, he forcibly rips the moisture out of his foe's body through their face and eyes, thus replentishing the strength of his aura.
Mass Extraction: Though weaker than his Extract Moisture ability, Demetrios can pull some moisture from multiple foes simultaneously, re-energizing the Atlantean warrior and enabling him to continue the fight.
Might of Poseidon: When faced with insurmountable odds, Demetrios can call upon this ability to strengthen himself, growing more powerful for each foe who dares to engage him in combat.
Clutch of the Sea: Calling forth crushing tendrils of solid water, Demetrios ensnares and constricts a single foe in a watery prison.
Outside of his conscious control, Demetrios's watery aura comes to life on its own, springing into existence to defend him from any dangers.
Aquatic Embrace: Blessed by the power of the sea, this cloak of warm water spontaneously surrounds Demetrios whenever he is in danger of physical, negative energy, or toxic attacks.
Caress of the Sea: When energy or elemental attacks seek to harm Demetrios, this aura springs to life, shielding him from their touch.
Freedom of the Waves: Shining water bubbles float in the air around Demetrios's head, protecting him from both mental attacks and anything which would ensnare or restrict his movements.
Wrath of the Seas: When too many foes threaten Demetrios, boiling water bubbles to the surface at his feet, scalding those who stand too close.
Whirlpool: If Demetrios is injured in battle, his aura lashes out, forcibly pulling moisture from the bodies of all foes nearby to heal and strengthen the wounded Atlantean.
Elemental Form: Demetrios has unlocked the ability to completely transform himself into living water, gaining increased defense and stealth, and protection from immobilization.
Terror of the High Seas: Within the watery aura which surrounds Demetrios, the souls of a thousand drowned sailors scream their dying agony into the minds of his foes. Their minds assaulted by this psionic onslaught, weak-minded enemies can do little but cower in fear before him.
Oceanic Aura: When Demetrios enters battle, the sheer amount of water surrounding him increases the amount of moisture in the air to almost unbreathable levels. Deprived of the oxygen they need to breathe, his enemies choke and suffocate as they attempt to fend off his mighty attacks.
Rejuvenation of the Sea: If Demetrios is defeated in battle, his aura lashes out in a final retributive strike, draining massive quantities of moisture from nearby enemies to rejuvenate and revive the fallen warrior. Affected enemies suffer immediate and severe dehydration and intense disorientation.
