Arthur is rather upset and angered at the current Atlantis, where he fights Namor's rule with ferocity. In his day to day casual life, he can be described as to the point, grouchy, and with a grim sense of humor. There is an injustice done that must be righted.

Arthur was raised in a small town with small town values. He's sincere, honest, lawful, and always treats the other person with respect unless you disrespect him first. He's plainspoken and straightforward, unwilling to play games or talk in verbal circles. He's pretty much a knight in shining armor, personality-wise, just without the 'thy' and 'thee's.

Despite Arthur's abilities, he is a very moral and fair person, or so he would like to believe. He's a protector of the innocent and a vanquisher of evil. He is one of the few 'major' heroes who is willing to kill someone if it means that more lives will be saved. He's not an angel, but he believes in doing the right thing.

Ah, the sin that has teared kings from their thrones. However, Arthur's pride could be considered a healthy thing. He has pride in his people and in himself in a display of confidence, but not so much arrogance. In a flaw, Arthur is simply hard on himself in times where he should've been more cool-headed.

When you are born with very little, you become protective of what you have. Needless to say this has amplified since his father's death and mother's abandonment. If he makes a friend, he will defend them with his life and with loyalty.

Character Sheet


Click to expand.

Atlantean Hybrid:
Arthur is half human, half Atlantean. He can breathe underwater as if it were air and breathe air as if it were water. This genetic gift is the source for all of his superhuman abilities on both sides of the gene pool.

Divine Empowerment:
Earning the approval of an Ocean God is definitely worth the while. Poseidon has given Arthur a myriad of abilities:

Weather Control: Under Poseidon's purview, Arthur can command, create, and manipulate weather phenomenon. He can conjure thunderstorms, rain, wind, and lightning while on land and ocean-based weather while at sea, like tsunamis and hurricanes.

Magic Resilience: Aquaman is one of the few heroes who have a resistance to magic. Though his resistance to magic of Thule origin is highest at downright immune, other magics he simply has a light resistance, but the closer to Atlantean origin it is, the more resistant he is. Even if it means most spells still hurt.

Hydrokinesis: Arthur can manipulate water. He could stop an oncoming rush of flood or weaponize water into bladed shards or whips and similar weapons.

Cryokinesis: Arthur can, upon physical contact, Freeze water en masse and even people (with extended contact).

As an Atlantean Royal, Arthur heals much faster than other Atlanteans, who already heal quicker than humans. He heals severe injuries in a few days and most mundane injuries within a couple minutes to hours, depending on the severity. He cannot regenerate lost limbs or organs without mystical or advanced help.

Arthur is built incredibly tough. He can survive the deepest parts of the ocean with casual ease, including the crushing pressure that most have no hope surviving in and take a swim in lava and be unharmed. He is effectively bulletproof and can survive taking explosives (like from an RPG) to the face and be just fine. He can take hits from the best of them and keep coming back for more, being durable enough to shrug off most forms of damage from all but the best.

Marine Telepathy:
Probably what Arthur gets made fun of the most for: he can talk to fish. Okay, he can talk to A LOT of fish, big and small. Though instead of convincing fish to do what he says, he can actually just influence them to do exactly what he wants. He could call a school of sharks to devour an enemy or call up a Leviathan from the deep depths to assist him in combat against a particularly strong foe. His limits in regards to this ability is ultimately unknown, but it should be stated that a particular form of sea life with a strong will to resist can cause a mental war to exhaust Aquaman mentally. The sea is home to many creatures and nightmares that man dare not touch, but as long as Aquaman's will is strong enough, he can assume command of them.

Super Reflexes:
Arthur's reflexes are far beyond anything a baseline human could ever hope to perform. Specifically 15 times greater. Even faster than most Atlanteans in terms of reaction time, Arthur can dodge point-blank gunfire and even lightning after its fired off. He can keep up with more than a few of his Justice League counterparts, but really only in reaction time. He cannot keep up with most speedsters.

Super Senses:
Arthur's senses are extraordinarily enhanced. Typically used when beneath the waves, Arthur's senses act much like Sonar sense. Though his Atlantean heritage gives him a crystal clear night vision due to the lack of light in the ocean depths, Arthur's sonar sense lets him see even deeper than that before he even gets there. Typically, his range is about 50,000 feet when in water. On land, his sonar sense is removed, but his hearing is good enough that he can hear up to several miles away.

Super Speed:
By no means a speedster by the normal meaning of the term, Arthur is still blessed with incredible speed that is assisted by his great strength. On land, Arthur can move up to transonic speeds at his absolute best, any faster and he will tire extremely quickly. In the water, he's one of the fastest swimmers alive, capable of swimming up to hypersonic speeds, capping at about mach 7.

Super Strength:
Arthur Curry is EXTREMELY strong, arguably the strongest of his entire race, due to his heritage. Consider that all Atlanteans have some measure of Superhuman Strength, and Arthur blows most if not all of them out of the water. He can comfortably lift well over 100 tons. He is capable of lifting buildings over his head and, in more extreme situations, moving items like Tectonic plates and matching the heavy hitters of the Justice League blow for blow in contests of physical strength.

Trained from a young age by a great Atlantean warrior, Arthur is no slouch when it comes to combat. Though he truly excels at underwater combat, on land he is a master spear fighter (typically with his trident) that is fully capable of standing up against the best weapon masters around and at least hold his ground. He is somewhat skilled in swordsmanship, but it pales in comparison to his spear mastery.

Charismatic and sure of himself, Arthur is a natural leader whose lineage is of powerful and beloved Kings and Queens. He could lead a small group of people (if he was ever actually allowed to) or an actual army of people. Pair this with a knack for strategy that isn't 'punch the other guy' and Arthur's actually pretty good at leading people.

Marine Biology:
Arthur knows just about everything about every known species of fish. Pretty much useless, but as a lighthouse keeper and occasional sailor, its kind of important to know what your dealing with.

Aquaman can speak fluent English, Atlantean, Russian, Spanish and Polynesian with conversational skill in Italian.

Arthur knows how to operate a boat. Be it by mast or by engine, Arthur can get from point A to point B, something that is rather helpful when he needs to be incognito and 'normal'.

Atlantean Armor:
Made from Atlantean steel, it is largely protective against most man-made weapons, except for high-intensity explosions. That'll cut through it like butter.

Arthur has proclaimed himself publically to Atlantis as the true heir to the throne in opposition to the current leadership. He has garnered himself a few followers that would follow him to the depths of the sea. If he was in a bind, surely he could call on them for help.

Justice League:
A founding member of the Justice League who still has a seat at the table as it were, Aquaman can call on his heroic allies in times of distress and has access to Justice League resources.

Trident of Poseidon:
A weapon granted to Arthur by the Olympian God of the Seas, Poseidon. This allows him to be able to do a few tricks that his enemies don't expect from a golden trident. It is unbreakable, made from the Olympian Adamantine. It allows him to better control the weather he is able to produce and fire off bolts of electricity from its three-pronged tip. In addition, it also allows Arthur to fly up to about 300mph. As a magic weapon, it can hurt beings who have an extremely high tolerance for damage and is deadly to unholy creatures.

Atlantis is really all Arthur has left in terms of a home, despite its current leadership at the moment. If Atlantis were ever in danger, Arthur would immediately rush to its defense against any threat.

Probably one of the most inconvenient weaknesses ever, Arthur needs to stay hydrated, since Atlanteans dehydrate faster than humans. Specifically, he can survive three days without practically bathing in water before more lethal effects start to kick in. The longer he goes without being hydrated, the weaker his overall abilities will become.

On the surface, Aquaman has made more than a few enemies who would love to take down the Prince apparent and would not shed a single tear if something bad happened to him. Arthur's adventures with the Justice League has further intensified how many people want Arthur gone.

High Standard:
When Arthur found out about his heritage, what his family was like, the kind of future he has, he started holding himself to a much higher standard. After all, how can you be a King if you don't act like one? It drives him onward to know that he carries a strong name with pride, but also that he takes his failures very personally and to heart.

The King of Atlantis is hunting the opposition to his throne. Occasionally, a team of highly trained Atlantean warriors will attack Arthur. So far they haven't succeeded, but its still something to look over your shoulder for.

Despite having a resistance to it, Aquaman can still be affected by magic, such as magical weapons most prominently. They are the go-to for getting past his durability aside from a good ole fashioned bout of fisticuffs.
