Background

Doctor Robert Corvell was one of Tasmania’s leading biologists. Hist latest project was to study the possibility to bring back the extinct Tasmanian Tiger. Most people thought the whole idea was bonkers, but for Doctor Corvell it was a worthwhile project.

It was fate that night when Robert was paid a visit by Professor Cane Toad. The professor showed to have an interest in Robert’s research. Professor Cane Toad wanted his research for his own. Unfortunately for Robert it was a night he chose to work late.

The door to the lab exploded in a million pieces as Professor Cane Toad slammed his cane into it. In walked a hug toad headed man and strode in quickly followed by almost a does of his mutates.

“Knock, knock,” quipped Professor Cane Toad. His minions chuckled at their bosses joke.

“Now hold on,” said an indignant Doctor Corvell, “no one is allowed in here.” Doctor Corvell had never heard of Professor Cane Toad, but the sight of the professor certainly unnerved the doctor.

“Oh so sorry to interrupt your research Doctor Corvell, but you see I have a need for your research, and I am such a busy toad. So please just hand over your research if you’d be so kind.”

Doctor Corvell was stunned. Was this person actually wanting to take his work away from him? Surely he must be joking. Robert straightened his back and adjusted his glasses.

“Now see here,” said Doctor Crovell, “I certainly will not hand over my research to you or anybody else for that matter.”

“You dare,” growled Professor Cane Toad as he came forward and grabbed Doctor Crovell by the shirt front and raised the doctor off of the floor so that they were looking eye to eye. Doctor Corvell’s feet were dangling a few inches Off the floor. Professor Cane Toad was uberhumanly strong and could easily press a tank over his head. A scrawny scientist was no challenge.

“You dare,” said Professor Cane Toad again, “to de3ny me what I require. None dare to stand against me, Professor Cane Toad.”

With the utmost of contempt Professor Cane Toad flung Doctor Corvell away from himself. Robert didn’t even have a chance to yell before his back slammed into a row of experimental chemicals. Vials, tubes, and glass bottles shattered when Robert struck them. Some of them proved to be volatile and burst into flames as they mixed on Robert’s back. Robert screamed in agony as he burned.

As for Professor Cane Toad and his minions they watched for a little while before the professor signaled to his henchmen and they turned to leave. This little venture to Tasmania bore little fruit. Professor Cane Toad would seek out other sources for his scientific research.

It was the smell that brought Robert back from the edge. Hospital smells. They were so strong, overwhelming even. His slitted eyes opened and his nostril flared. Odd thought Robert, and then he looked down body. Or was it hiss body? Long muscular arm covered with a tan-like fur. It all seemed familiar in a way. With trembling hands that didn’t seem his own, Robert reached up and touched his face. The face wasn’t his. A mouth full of pointed teeth, and a snout no less greeted his clawed fingers. Robert screamed because it was him, and he screamed because he knew what he had become when Professor Cane Toad had thrown him into the wall of chemicals at his lab. Some of them had contained DNA from the Tasmanian Tiger and some how the DNA had mixed with his own. He had become a living Tasmanian Tiger.

The idea of it all kind of pleased Robert, but he wondered if the transformation was permanent or not. He didn’t have much time to contemplate his state of affairs as the door to his hospital room flung open and his nurse rush in to find out why Robert had screamed. Robert was so surprised that he instantly transformed back to his human from, and Robert just knew that from now on he’d be able to become the Tasmanian Tiger whenever he wanted to. Yes this was going to be interesting.

Personality

Before his transformation into Tasmanian Tiger, Robert was mellow retiring type of person, a classic nerd if you will. However, nowadays Robert can’t seem to get enough excitement, especially when he’s in his Tasmanian Tiger form. Robert has earned several speeding tickets, and as Tasmanian Tiger he rarely stands still for long.

It’s in combat where Robert shines. He doesn’t waste time when it comes to a fight. Robert goes in to take down a foe as fast as possible. So far he hasn’t actually killed anyone, and he’d be horrified if he actually did. At time Robert worries that part of the transformation results in an almost animalistic aggression.

For all the changes in Robert, he’s still very much a scientist. At times he has found himself distracted with some new breakthrough in science, and has a hard time tearing himself away.

Quote

"I don't play with my foes. I take them out."

Powers

Robert is a man who can instantly transform himself into a Tasmanian Tiger-like humanoid. When the transformation takes place, Robert becomes uberhumanly strong, swift, and incredibly resistant to injury. In point of fact, Roberts’ constitution becomes so powerful that he heals faster than would normally be possible for a human.

In his transformed state, his senses of smell become incredibly acute. As Tasmanian Tiger, Robert has been known to track his foes with just smell alone. Like a cat, Robert is also able to see at night.

When transformed, Robert is able to run extremely fast and can just long distances with ease. Also his fingers grow claws which Robert can use to shred steel even.

Appearance

As Tasmanian Tiger, Robert puts on several inches in height and quite a lot of weight as well, and all of that is muscle. In his transformed state, Robert looks vaguely like a Tasmanian Tiger. His body is covered in a tan-like fur, with dark bands of fur around his neck and around his legs. A tail grows from his back as well. Claws grow from his fingers, and his face become very cat-like complete with fangs.

In his normal form, Robert is a man of middling height with short brown hair. He normally wears glasses. Robert’s typical mode of dress are blue jeans, a white cotton shirt, a poorly tied tie, and over this he likes to wear a lab coat.
