Coral can breathe underwater and withstand extreme cold and pressure, making her body the definition of hardy. Although she has never had the chance to actually try her limits, she can survive a depth of about 32,000 feet underwater.
Age/Date of Birth:
22. September 30.
About an inch and a half taller than her brother, Coral has a slim, athletic build and heart-shaped face. She also has a flat nose and wide, pale gray eyes. Coral, like her brother, has no hair. Her body is almost entirely covered in fine, shimmering silvery-gray scales. There are some streaks on her back and extremities that are deep blue in color. Coral also has fin-like ridges on her arms and calves, webbed fingers and toes, and gills on the sides of her neck.
Because Coral’s body is designed for the cold, she avoids heavy layers. Her favorite item of clothing is a lightweight purple hoodie that she often wears to cover her head in public.
Coral is considerably less combative than her brother in terms of personality. While plenty talkative, she is unlikely to take offense to anything anybody could say--and quite often do--to her. She tends to be very proud of the people she meets and their accomplishments, even if they barely know each other, and has very little concept of the word "stranger" once exposed to fellow mutants. Coral also has a fish-like memory and curiosity that drives her to be rather reckless, invasive and forgetful in incredibly frustrating circumstances.
Special Skills: Not so much a skill as a hobby, but Coral does enjoy taking pictures of things she has not seen before. Also, she has a notable dexterity as a make-up artist--specializing in creating human-flesh hues and blends--although this particular talent does not receive much exercise, nowadays.
Place of birth: Bandon, Oregon.
Weapon(s) of choice: Coral has much faith in her physical strength and hardiness, so if she ever fought someone it would resemble a street fight; hands, feet, and whatever happens to be laying around.
Medical information: Coral usually gets the hiccups when first adjusting to breathing air after being underwater for a while. It can last up to an hour.
Brief History: Coral and Gavin Zhou were raised just outside of Bandon, Oregon. All their lives the two were homeschooled by their parents. They would go to the Coquille River on a regular basis so Coral could swim while Gavin enjoyed the fresh air (in all actuality, he was bored out of his mind, but it gave him an excuse to leave the house). As the years passed, Bandon became a popular tourist destination and while Coral was taking online college courses and Gavin was reaching high school level their parents began wondering if it was safe to stay there. It seemed to work out well for a while as the Zhou kids were only ever seen from a distance while covered enough to be disguised. Eventually, though, as the river attracted more and more tourists, rumors began to spread about a huge silvery fish—which some insisted was a mermaid—swimming in the deeper and more remote waters. At this point, Mr. and Mrs. Zhou decided to send their kids to Xavier’s school.
Relatives: Her brother, Gavin, and parents.
How long your character has been in the mansion: New arrival. Five months
Current Attire: Today's outfit is a navy blue spaghetti-strap tank, khaki shorts and old, muddy watershoes. She always wears a grey one-piece swimsuit under her clothes. Given the warm weather and that so far people at the mansion don't stare at her, she has foregone the purple hoodie for today.
