Recently, a van has been parked near the shore of Lake Superior with a couple of people setting up a small camp around it. They seem to be mostly content to cook out and watch the lake.
Kaipo is a Hawaiian person of indeterminate gender (māhū), standing at just above five feet. They have a slim build and a bit of a baby face, with brown eyes that are often hidden behind the bangs of their shoulder-length hair. Day-to-day they usually wear cargo shorts, button-up tees, and sandals. Their “costume” consists of a variety of wetsuits and drysuits depending on the weather and where they’re operating. A simple set of goggles covers the upper half of their face in costume.

Crash just wants to have a good time. They like to surf and swim, and they don’t particularly care about making a living. However, they also don’t have a job and will rob places for cash and food, which can lead to problems for them and their partner.
Crash is a hydrokinetic capable of manipulating any water within 15 feet of them. The water hovers in close proximity to their body. They have the ability to increase or decrease the surface tension of any water they control in this way, allowing them to deliver water punches that hit like concrete or use it as a platform to stand on.
There is no upper limit to how much water they can control other than proximity. Any water that gets more than fifteen feet from them ceases to be in their control.
They can’t control the temperature of water, but they can control ice and snow as well. They can link the movement of the water to movements of their body to perform a sort of in-sync “water echo” to hit people or move heavy items with. As long as they can wrap the water around something, they can increase the surface tension enough to lift it.
They are unable to control steam, but they can diffuse water into mist.
They are Manton limited, unable to use water in people’s bodies. Any liquid must be at least 50% water for them to manipulate it.
Additionally, they can increase the force of any water in their vicinity ten fold, making even small waves hit much harder. They can make water move up to ten miles per hour.
Kaipo grew up on the gorgeous beaches of Haleiwa, Oahu in Hawaii. They learned to surf before they could even remember, and were proud of their abilities. But they weren’t always the best at keeping their mouth shut. When some tourists from Cali showed up to try and embarrass the locals, Kaipo put them in their places with expert shredding. After the competition, Kaipo approached the haoles and good-naturedly told then that they had some sick skills, but Hawaii was where surfing was made.
Upset at their loss and angry at the local’s laid-back attitude after crushing them, the tourists grabbed Kaipo and dragged them to the edge of the beach to begin dunking their head repeatedly under the water. At first Kaipo thought they were just joking around, but when they started running out of air they panicked
Being one of the few capes on the islands wasn’t the sort of attention Kaipo wanted, so they pretty quickly got money together and booked it to the mainland, where they met their partner Wake. The duo lived to surf together. When they saw news from Devilfish about a villainess making Lake Superior swell and froth, they mistook it for the lake’s natural state and scurried over to see if they could catch some sick waves.
