Background

There was nothing better in life than to hit the waves, soak up the sun and pick up some tourist babes, but when Harry Henty was caught in a rip off the coast of Spain his life seemed to flash before his eyes and it didn't fill in much time as he fought for his life. When he was dragged from the water by an invisible force which took control of the water around him, Harry found himself face to face with a blue haired uber called Seiche.

Harry disliked him the moment they met. There was something whiney in his voice and something weak in the way he stood and pronounced the end of the world. When Seiche told Harry that they both shared an active ubergene, Harry was impressed. Not so impressed that they shared something, but that he was an uber.

Cool.

Seiche had intended to recruit Harry into his team of nihilists, but Harry would have nothing of it. He was all for himself, sure, but didn't care about sharing his fun with some blue-haired pansy. Harry spat the invitation back in Seiche's face, and then the Swiss leader of Ruin lost his cool completely.

The water seemed to churn with fury.

Harry thought he was dead.

And he would have been if he hadn't shunted himself away, unconsciously activating his ubergene. He ploughed through the air at the speed of sound before barrelling into a field which slowed his descent. He was in France.

Cool.

He returned to England and started to use his powers to rob banks. It was small time, he knew, but the money was good and he managed to enjoy his life surfing during the day and being an uberhuman thief at night.

One night he met another young uber, Bailey, during a poker game. The two struck up a friendship and then decided to have some fun tearing up a part of London for the night. The fun lasted a few more weeks on and off before Bailey introduced Harry to some of his mates, and from that Harry became known as Riptide and officially joined the team of Empire - although he is the least active member, preferring to maintain his surfer lifestyle while he can.

Personality

Harry is a bully who likes to make himself feel good by putting others down. No one is better than him at anything, or if they are it's because they cheated or because of some other unfair element. He likes to think of himself as laid-back as the surfer stereotype but he is an intense and fiercely judgemental individual.

He and Bailey enjoy each other's company, but Harry grates on the other members of the team. He is not in the team for any kind of patriotic reason - it's just a place to hang out with his uber-mate, Bailey.

Quote

"Ooh-hoo, looks like you can't dodge my hurricane-blades after all."

Powers

Riptide is able to move at very very fast speeds, whether it be on the ground, in the air or in water. He is also able to manipulate the air around him to an extent, which he usually employs to generate a protective force field around him while he flies. He can also use the air to lift things off the ground, as well as generate intense wind storms which can be devastating.

His most deadly tactic is to hurl blades at targets and then employ his winds to hammer them home. The blades can kill with a single shot and can punch through thick metal.

Appearance

Harry Henty is a handsome, if egotistical, young man who has spent most of his post-schooling life at a beach. His skin is tanned and his hair is sun-bleached in parts. He wears a body armour which has the texture of a wetsuit, and silver shades. His smile is dazzling, but his voice is usually menacing and carries with it the true personality of Henty.
